Support: Permissions

This FAQ explains the permissions that are required by Ski Safari 2 on Android. For general questions, see the Support page.


Device ID

We use this permission to give you a unique user account on the Ski Safari 2 server.

Call Information

We use this permission to pause the game when you receive a phone call.

We do not access any phone numbers.


We use this permission for two purposes:

  1. To ensure your Google Play account is not being impersonated.
  2. For multi-user accounts on your device.

When you connect your Google Play account in the game, the Ski Safari 2 server talks with Google's server to validate your Google Play account. This prevents malicious users from hijacking your save game or impersonating you in the game.

If your device has multiple user accounts, Ski Safari 2 gives each user account an individual save game. It needs to know which account is active in order to create a unique online account on the Ski Safari 2 server.

This permission does not let us read any of your passwords or credentials.

Photos / Media / Files

We use this permission to store your in-game photos and save your data to an SD card.

Wi-Fi Connection Information

We use this permission for multiplayer games.

When you open the Versus screen, Ski Safari 2 automatically discovers multiplayer games running on your WiFi network. We use multicast for discovery. We also display your WiFi SSID and check whether WiFi is connected in order to help diagnose connection problems.

In-app Purchases

Required for the optional in-app purchases.

Internet Access

Required for talking to the Ski Safari 2 server.
