"Allow Sideline to access your contacts?" is the prompt for contact permissions. With this permission disabled, Sideline can't access contacts, thus you won't know who is calling/texting you and you will be unable to sync your contacts, save a phone number or edit contact info.
Note: This permission is strictly for functional purposes. We never access or share this info in the background.
Sideline needs permission to access your microphone to make/receive phone calls, set custom voicemail greetings and record videos.
The term "record audio" is used when asking for microphone access.
Note: Don't worry, we do not actually record anything!
Enabling Phone permissions are crucial to the core function of Sideline.
"Allow Sideline to make and manage phone calls?" is the prompt for phone permissions. With this permission disabled, Sideline cannot make and receive calls and thus your 2nd number will not function properly.
Note: We never access your phone in the background.
"Allow Sideline to access photos, media, and files on your device?" is the prompt for storage permissions.
To save pictures, videos, or ringtones on your device, Sideline needs access to your device storage.
Sideline needs access to your camera so that you can send pictures or videos within the app.
Photo permission is required when sending picture messages through Sideline.
Sideline needs notifications enabled in order to alert you when you've received calls, texts or a voicemail.
