Why does TWINT want authorisation to access my camera or contacts, for example?

We require access to your camera during the scanning of a QR code and when you would like to attach a photo when sending money. TWINT uses the access to your contacts in connection with the ‘Send money’ function. This allows for the names to be displayed in the app. Sometimes, our partners also need information about your location in order to be able to offer you specific services such as “Parking without having to walk to the parking meter” and “Refuelling”.
