Data Available to all Apps
Below are examples of the types of information that are automatically shared with apps. Access to certain of these types of information may be disabled by you through your device settings. If you do not wish to share information with an app provider, do not download apps from that provider.
Internet: Apps will be able to access the internet connection your device is using, however, Magic Leap’s platform is not designed to share any information about your connection such as SSID (Network Name) or BSSID (MAC Address).
Spatial Maps: Apps will be able to access the spatial map of your surroundings while the apps are running, including while in the background. Apps need this information to display within and interact with your environment.
Perception: Apps will be able to access your eye tracking data (including the direction of your gaze and a numerical representation of your pupil size), hand positions, certain motion information (such as the speed and direction of your motions), gestures, and Control positions. Some perception information, such as head position, motion and eye tracking are accessible by all apps running, including while in the background. Apps use this information, for example, to understand when and how you are interacting with the apps.
Other: Apps will also be able to access other, less sensitive data and features, such as battery percentage, the ability to upload and download data in the background, digital rights management certificates, mechanisms to complete in-app purchases and media player integration information.
Data Available with Permissions
Below are examples of the types of information that require your permission for third-party apps to access. A third-party app is required to request access to this type of data before the app may access the information for the first time. If you wish to change which permissions you have granted a third-party app, you can do so through your device settings at any time.
Camera: Granting this permission allows an app to access the picture camera on your device for the purposes of capturing images and video, and for some limited computer vision processing use cases (such as a QR code or for purposes of overlaying filters on faces or objects).
Microphone: Granting this permission allows an app access to your device’s near field and far field microphones to capture audio streams.
Local Area Network: Granting this permission allows an app to access any Local Area Network to which you have connected your device.
Identity: Granting this permission allows an app to query certain Magic Leap profile information. You will be able to choose what attributes you expose to an application.
Location: Granting this permission allows an app to query your device’s geolocation.
Object Data: Granting this permission allows an app to query object data reflected in your spatial maps.
