We are releasing one of the datasets from a research project conducted jointly by the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) and The Bachchao Project in 2016-17.
This dataset about the different permissions sought by selected “safety applications” available on the Google Play store in India was compiled as a part of the “Evaluating Safety Buttons on Mobile Devices” project in November 2016. A preliminary report on the findings was released at RightsCon in Brussels in 2017:
