With the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it added a feature that lets your control your what permission each apps can have. This feature was called "Granular Permission System".
Being able to control what each App can access is a huge peace of mind. Especially with controversial apps like Facebook which had caused huge privacy concerns a couple years back. Not to mentioned the infamous "Facebook Messenger" problem.
With Android 6.0, Users can be a lot more liberal on installing Apps from the Playstore. Of course, caution still have to be exercise, but they can ease up a lot more.
