Android Permissions

Adding snooper_android as a dependency to your project will make the app inherit the QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES permission:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES" />

which can be verified in the app’s merged manifest.

It can be removed by adding the tools namespace and a permission removal tag to your app’s AndroidManifest.xml:

<manifest xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools">
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES" tools:node="remove" />

Removing QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES will result in all user-installed apps disappearing from the results returned by the SnooperAndroid APIs.
