Internet access permission

Hi,

 

I'm building an app that lets users send a message to their friends. (via PHP) 

Do I need to set a permission for "internet access"?
Thank you

Re: Internet access permission

But is it also part of the permission information window that you get if you lauch an app the first time?

 

I recently downloaded the LinkedIn app and they don't have a permission for internet access - but I believe they need access to the internet too.

Not all permissions prompt the user at install.
