Some applications may need to access data, settings and various functions on your device in order to work properly. If so, then they need the relevant permissions from you. For example, a navigation application needs permissions to send and receive data traffic, and access your location.
Some applications might misuse their permissions by stealing or deleting data, or by reporting your location. Make sure you only install and give permissions to applications you trust.
