Is it safe to allow access to stuff inside the phone to a application that download?

Most of the times even though it really does not necessary some apps asking for permission to access contacts, camera, and stuff when it is installing. Is this really necessary and safe?

If app comes from authorized developer like Google LLC then you can trust on that otherwise it’s unsafe.

Try to allow the access to the trusted apps only and not to the other ones as they might have an intent to steal your data without your permission.

One should switch on the app permissions only if it is necessary for an app to function.
