Android MoPub 4.x now requiring android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

MoPub 4.x now includes exoplayer which requests additional permissions in their AndroidManifest for android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

My application does not need these additional permissions. Are these permissions required? Can they be removed?

Hi @nanek,

Thanks for reaching out! These permissions are not required, but they are recommended for most set ups by MoPub. We plan to publish more detailed documentation on permissions in the future. However, if you still have questions, please reach out to us directly at support@mopub.com and someone on our team will help you.

Thank you!
