Marco Polo Permissions

What does Marco Polo need access to?

For the best Marco Polo™ experience, certain Permissions are requested. The following explains what each Permission enables.

Android Permissions:

Contacts: you’ll see which friends are already using Marco Polo™.

Camera: enables you to record Polos, and is only accessed when using Marco Polo™.

Siri & Search: enables Siri to search Marco Polo™ content.
