Personal Data request

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but I'm new to the system.

 

I have downloaded a couple of Utility apps to monitor battery usage and they are asking for connections to personal data. I'm concerned about the security of my phone if I give permission, but if I do not apparently they won't fully perform.

The one that most concerns me is Battery Watch by S4BB Limited.

 

Can anyone advise just how risky this is.

 

Many thanks

Alan

Re: Personal Data request

which personal data exactly?
such an app has no reason to access your contacts, but it would require to access at least the hardware part of the device.
