Android's change in permissions affects camera access - How to fix it

23 August 2018


Dear Android ClimateWatch users,

For those of you who have installed the ClimateWatch app on Android devices recently, you might be affected by Android's change in persmissions requirements and experiencing camera access issues. To resolve this, please visit your mobile device's settings and allow the ClimateWatch app permission to access your device's camera.


Settings > Applications > turn on permissions for the ClimateWatch app to allow it to access your camera and gallery.


Happy ClimateWatching!
