The Parkmobile app uses the camera function to scan QR codes. The Parkmobile signs and stickers in your area may display a QR code which can be scanned to populate zone information into your app.
Google Play bundles some permissions together, which why the app asks for the “Camera/Microphone” permission. The Parkmobile app never accesses the microphone and does not take videos.
Due to the design of the Android operating system, we must ask for certain permissions on Android devices to give you the full functionality of the Parkmobile app. We do not take advantage of any of the extra permissions without explicit action on your part.
