I just upgraded to an Android SmartPhone and was intending to use the free Chase Bank app that allows me to take a picture of my checks and they are deposited. After reading the many things this app has access to, on my phone, I cannot use this app. fyi, this is the 3rd app I have not downloaded because of what the app will have access to. (See below)
...am I the only one who thinks this is BAD and WRONG?
