I have an Android App for my Mobile Network Provider Ortel (Ortel Germany). With this App you can check you balance, book and cancel Internet and Call Packs etc. When this App starts i need to put my Phone Number. After that, the app send a command over Network and i get an SMS with a security key. The SMS with the security key is visible in my Messages, but the Android App doesn't read the text of the SMS, because the SMS is inside Sailfish Messages.

Is there an option to allow Android Apps to see the Sailfish SMS Messages?

I think the same issue prevents the official WhatsApp client from activating itself automatically.

I can cofirm it, but don't want to have Android apps to be able to access SMS or any other data. At least it should be configurable for each app individually like background services.

I agree. That would be good, if we have an option where we can choose which android apps should have access to sailfish data...
