    Outlook app and permissions

    Posted in case this is of use to others - finding this took more research than I had expected

    I use (OK, Hotmail !) and have the app on my Android phone.

    Yesterday the app asked me to confirm my password and then came up with a terrifying set of permissions it required (to do pretty well everything with all the information stored on my phone, including changing or deleting it).

    It did also say that these permissions could be changed but didn't say where or how.

    After much digging I found that on the website I could change the settings so that the app didn't have any permissions at all. It looked as though that included not being able to send or receive emails from the app but in fact I can.

    Let me know if you want details of where the settings are.
