Why does the updated mobile app need access to my device and app history?

 

This category of permission also allows access to browsing history. 

 

Can you please elaborate on what information this app will be tracking/removing from my phone if I give this permission?

Hi @Kym32 - good question!

 

The app needs to be able to access the SD card/media files, not so we can look at information like your browsing history in the way you're concerned about, but so you can do things like use the 'back' button and we/the app can send you to the right places (ie. based on your 'history').
