Hello Team,

All of a sudden I am getting this Security Hotspot issue since yesterday. This permission is in Manifest file since beginning. Previously, this issue was not visible in Security Hotspot issues.The same issue is appearing for 7 other Android permissions. Kindly guide me how to fix this issue.

Thank you.

A good starting point is this guide: Report a False-positive / False-negative - Sonar Community
