Certain permissions are required for the Contacts app to function correctly. When you download the app or access certain features, you are prompted to allow access to these permissions. The following table lists the required permissions, and how the Contacts app uses each permission.
Change your permission settings
In your device settings, you can turn each permission on or off for a specific app. If you turn off certain permissions, some features of the app might not be available, and the app might not perform as expected.
