Skillz Permissions Requests


On iOS, Skillz will prompt the user for permission to access certain device capabilities. The section below lists all the requests that are made, and why.

Permissions that Skillz will request for access

Location Services

The user's location is used so that he or she can participate in local cash-prize tournaments.

Camera Usage

Camera access is requested so that the user can take a photo for a custom profile picture.

Photo Library Access

Write access to the photo library is requested so that the user can either save a custom profile picture, created from using the camera, or use an existing photo for their profile picture.

Access to Contacts

This enables users to easily find friends already on Skillz or refer them.
