SMS and Calls feature removed from SafeMinor

Recently, Google Play changed their policy for CALL and SMS permissions, to limit the apps that are allowed to use these permissions. Google Play notified us that our app would be one of many affected by these changes.

Hence, we are required to make these changes because our app's use cases are no longer permitted to access these permissions. Documentation of this new Google Play permission policy can be found here: Use of SMS or Call Log permission groups - Play Console Help 

Unfortunately, this means that we were required to remove any features that rely on these permission. Those features are:

  • SMS 
  • Calls (For Android 8.0+)

As of SafeMinor version 1.0.27, these features have been removed from the app. We apologize for any inconvenience.
