Permissions Required for the SlideShare Mobile App

Your mobile device OS requests permissions to use features on your device. Below is the list of current permissions SlideShare requests on your mobile device.

On iOS

Below are some of the permissions the SlideShare app requires and examples of how we use them.

Permissions:

  • Add or remove accounts
  • Create accounts and set passwords
  • Find accounts on the device
  • Use accounts on the device

How we use these permissions:

SlideShare stores the account you've associated in the app with your device's account manager. This allows account management to be handled in the system settings. The app must be able to create an account, set the password, and use the account it has created. It also needs to be able to find if a SlideShare account exists on the device, to see if you're already signed in.

Device Access:

  • Full network access, Receive data from Internet - SlideShare's content is hosted on our website. The app needs network access to download content from the website.
  • View network connections, View Wi-Fi connections - The SlideShare app detects whether there's a network connection to know whether you're in offline mode, so it knows whether to attempt to contact the SlideShare website.
  • Retrieve running apps - This helps you share your content through the LinkedIn mobile app, if you have it.
  • Prevent phone from sleeping - This makes sure your device is awake when we send notifications.
  • Read sync settings, Toggle sync on and off - We sync with the SlideShare website to keep your content up to date.
