Tor browser permissions

Has anyone else checked out the permissions for the tour browser for Android alpha. To me it doesn’t make sense because how can a browser that was built for anonymity have an app that uses a number of unnecessary permissions. For someone like me that can’t quite read the source code it seems very strange but to any programers out there please correct me if i’ve misspoken.

You are not forced to activate those permissions, right? Why does it matter then? You want camera? Activate it.

You want to save files, grant Storage.

Etc

Which permission is fishy?

It’s a known issue, follow #40109.
