App looks great but I am worried about security risks

Why in the world does your app need to "read phone and state identity" and provide the gps location of the user? seems like a pretty big security risk.

Great question!

Well the first "Phone and State identity".

Without this permission we wouldn't know when to lower the volume of the stream when a phone call is received or being made.

Second, "gps location".
We have this for ads purposes. If you install the paid version it wont ask for this permission because we don't use ads there.
