    I would like to purchase an invoice app, sold by BB, but it asks to give permission to take over the phone ,files, photos,etc. Is this secure.

    Some permissions are required for the app to perform as advertised, some are not. If it is an app from BlackBerry World, you can selectively re-adjust permission after the installation from Settings, Security and Privacy, Application Permissions.

    If it is an Android app from another source, it will automatically be inspected by BlackBerry Guardian, but you probably can't selectively choose permissions.

    Compare the features of the application with the permissions it asks for. As an invoice app, it makes sense it would need access to your contacts to be able to send an email from the app. It makes sense that you could create files, so access to the file system, and so on.

    Also remember that often these permissions are local to the device so while it can access information on your device, it has no way to phone home to send anything it finds off your device.
