Concern about Mandatory App Permissions

The app that I am helping to develop does not require an internet connection.  When I installed the .apk from Intel XDX, i see three permissions.

I know that this are mandatory permissions: https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/faqs/general#android-permissions

How do I explain to the end-users these required permissions? If they wonder or ask why they are required?  May I link Intel XDX supports email address? Can i add that link here? https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/faqs/general#android-permissions in the store page?

These Permissions:

* Full Network Access
* View Network Connections

*View Wi-fi Connections.

You need to set the whitelist to Block all in the project settings, then upload and build.

Even when I do that, the three permissions show.  According the official FAQ that linked too in my OP, the permissions are mandatory. Even when I block all the permissions show.  Those three.


How can I explain to the end-users these permissions?

Ooooh, I think I know whats going on. Ive been doing Block All in Android, not Android Crosswalk.  Ive been changing the settings for the first tap, Android, but ive been building Android Crosswalk.

That first tab is Android.  I was doing Block All there, not in Android Crosswalk.  So I was changing the settings in one, but using the other to build.  I got it now.  Thank you :)

So I changed the settings for one, but not the settings for the one I was actually using to build.
