Brightest Flashlight Android app believed to be sharing your location and device ID.

I’m very sure many of you would have tried this app on your Android smartphone as a 3rd party app on those who don’t have it by default. According to source , this app actually shares your location history and also the Android device’s ID, Based on Google Play , about 50 million + users had tried this app. Question remains why did the app maker mislead by gathering consumers information’s and what was it intended to?
My advice would be as simple as uninstalling the app if you still have it in your device as soon as possible instead of having them collecting data on your locations constantly.
