> Personally, I feel safer on iOS than Android due to permissions. The only
time I ever see "permissions" on Android is when downloading an app from
Play, and it gives me the option to either install or not, and usually
gives a long list of things the app will do. I never see any permission
being requested when running the apps, where as on iOS, when I  first try
to, for instance, access the camera or contacts, I am asked if I want to
grant permission or not. If I don't, just that one feature doesn't work. I
find this a better solution to what I am experiencing on Android.
