Managing app permissions

What is it?

Any.do offers a multitude of productivity features designed to make the most out of your day. In order to perform some of these actions, the app will require specific device permission to establish functionality.

Who has access?

How does it work?

  • Any.do does not ask for any permissions that aren’t strictly necessary for the app’s functionality.
  • Permissions can be enabled straight from the app or from the device’s Settings.
  • Permission can also be disabled at any given moment, should the user wish.
