That doesn't sound good at all Frown | :(

But if an app hasn't requested (and hasn't been granted) permission to read storage, does it REALLY mean it can't access storage? I read about some malware that don't request these permissions (so they don't even show up on the Play store in the permissions section) but once downloaded, they 'phone home' to download more executable code that has a malicious payload, which includes access to, say, storage that the original app didn't have. How tight is the sandbox really?

I just wonder if your app might be doing something like this. One thing you can do is install a firewall and see what IPs the app connects to. I've used NoRoot Firewall by Greyshirts (who came up with that name? D'Oh! | :doh: ) in the past that can do this.
Cheers,
