Nevertheless, it is not specified when does the application access the camera, is it all the time? Or just when you use it.
- Instagram can modify your account - Yes, after you have accepted their Terms and Conditions, Instagram has the right to "remove, edit, block, and/or monitor Content or accounts containing Content." They can even read your disputes and get involved in them.
- Instagram has a license to use your contents freely - In the clause "We do not claim ownership of your content, but you grant us a license to use it," Instagram clearly mentions that they do not claim ownership of your content (chats, pictures, stories, videos, IG TV contents).
