Logging into Lightstream for the first time may be a bit overwhelming with how many permissions are requested. Most permissions are used to do simple things like updating your stream info, while some are merely bundled in with permissions we require to put you live with the press of a button. In the spirit of transparency, here's the permissions we require and what we do with them:
