It was brought to our attention that versions 1.40 through 1.42 app updates of Image to Text OCR Scanner is requiring READ_PHONE_STATE permission, which allows the app to read sensitive phone information like phone number and phone ID. Please be informed that this permission was added by mistake and has been removed from the permissions that the app requires. We have issued an update that would resolve this problem (version 1.43). Read the full statement here.
