This popular app for the new Galaxy S10 phones makes the best use of Samsung’s hole-punch camera when you’re not taking selfies

This popup is somewhat alarming, and it’s understandable why someone wouldn’t want to give Energy Ring this kind of access.

Energy Ring’s developer IJP says in the app’s description on Google Play that “Energy Ring does not read any Notification whatsoever, it merely relies on it to be alive. Be assured that the App does NOT access anything.”

It’s difficult to tell how trustworthy a small, third-party developer like IJP actually is. If it’s worth anything, the prominent XDA-Developers site cites IJP (or “jagan2” as he’s known on the site) as a “recognized developer.” It might not be an official declaration of trustworthiness, but I highly doubt that XDA-Developers would promote a developer or app that compromises your security.

If you’re comfortable with XDA-Developers’ backing and IJP’s claims that the Energy Ring app doesn’t access your notifications, you can tap “Allow” on the popup.
