What is Emoji Launcher - Stickers & Themes?

Formerly called Emoji Phone, the Emoji Launcher app is a free app that allows users to access a wide range of emoji, GIFs, wallpapers and more

 

Emoji Launcher is only available for Android devices and is rated for teen users. The Emoji Launcher app feature in-app advertisements

 

Parents should be aware that Emoji Launcher is a “launcher” app, which means it takes over a user’s home screen to make it easier to access the features of the app and integrate them into their phone, either by customization or quick access via shortcuts.

 

The Emoji Launcher app requires users to give extensive permissions to run on devices, essentially giving the app the ability to access most areas of the device, in addition to being subject to a relentless barrage of advertisements.

 

It’s important to note that because Emoji Launcher is a launcher app, a user’s home screen is not exempt from receiving pop-up advertisements. In fact, a common user complaint is that, in addition to “taking over” user devices, Emoji Launcher displays advertisements on a user’s home screen.

Is Emoji Launcher - Stickers & Themes safe for my kids?

Parents should definitely weigh whether an emoji and GIF app is really worth the headache it presents. While the content of this app is safe for kids, parents may want to avoid this app due to it's invasive nature.

Where parents do have cause for concern is in the permissions of the Emoji Launcher app, which unnecessarily exposes user information to yet another party. As the Emoji Launcher app is one of convenience, not a necessity, users should carefully consider whether the free app is worth the cost of another application accessing information from their device.

Parents and users should be aware that by installing the Emoji Launcher app, they are also giving it access to:

  • Retrieve running apps
  • Read Web bookmarks and history
  • Find accounts on the device
  • Add or remove accounts
  • Read device contacts
  • Approximate location (network-based)
  • Precise location (GPS and network-based)
  • Read device text messages
  • Receive device text messages
  • Directly call phone numbers
  • Read call log
  • Access USB storage filesystem
  • Read the contents of USB storage
  • Modify or delete the contents of USB storage
  • Bind to a notification listener service
  • Read historical network usage
  • Close other apps
  • Modify secure system settings
  • Access Bluetooth settings
  • Send sticky broadcast
  • Delete all app cache data
  • Disable device screen lock
  • Control flashlight
  • Full network access
  • Change device audio settings
  • Reorder running apps
  • Draw over other apps
  • Prevent device from sleeping
  • Modify system settings
  • Write web bookmarks and history

If you’re thinking this is a lot of access within your phone, it is, some of which is only established to be able to feed information to third-party advertisers.

And while the Emoji Launch app is free to download and use, users should be aware that they will be served pop-up ads at an accelerated rate; in this sense, app use isn’t free since users “pay” for the privilege to use the app by agreeing to be served limitless advertisements.

Again, the incessant ad display, paired with the amount of permissions the Emoji Launcher app requires should be enough to give potential users and parents pause before downloading and running on their device.
