Official Google Wallet app requesting root permission | Tech NEWS

Something odd is going on with the Google Wallet app. After a recent update the app appears to be requesting root access, though the initial report is that nothing has changed within Google Wallet that would demand root access.

Some recommend Google is doing this to check if a phone is rooted or not so they can deny access, but the app has worked for some whether they grant it access or not.

Another odd thing is that some persons were not able to use the app after allowing it root access, but were able to use it once they disallowed it. In other words, we have no idea what’s going on with Google Wallet. Nothing in the changelog recommends Google made this change intentionally. It’s just one big mind scrambler. How is it acting for the many of you? [via Droid-Life]
