02.01 – User Guide – Granting Permissions

Cyber Eyez requires some permissions from your device to run including:

  • Access to your camera – Cyber Eyez uses your camera to take pictures and provide a real time display of the camera view…it’s pretty critical for Cyber Eyez to work.
  • Access to storage to save images for processing – While we wish everything lived in the ether, it just can’t. Even if we don’t save the images long term, we do need to write them to disk even temporarily to analyze them.
  • Access to the microphone – Some versions of Cyber Eyez support voice commands and even Alexa…we need the mic to hear you :).

Depending on your device, this process will vary slightly. It *should* be no different than granting permissions for any other app on your device.

Any Android Device via the Cyber Eyez App

The first time Cyber Eyez is launched it will ask for permissions to the Camera, Storage and Microphone. Tap allow on each one to continue into the app.

Any Android Device via Settings

Before you launch Cyber Eyez the first time, you can set the permissions via the System Settings on your device.

  1. Open Settings by either:
    1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap on the icon shaped like a gear
    2. or

    3. Swipe up from the bottom, browse your apps until you locate Settings and tap on it
  2. Scroll down until you get to Apps. Tap on Apps.
  3. Scroll down until you get to your version of Cyber Eyez and tap on it
  4. Tap on Permissions
  5. Turn on the toggles for Camera, Storage and Microphone


This method requires fairly good sight, scanning and targeting skills. The first time Cyber Eyez is launched inside the headset it will ask for permissions to the Camera and Storage. Look around to find the white dot that projects from the center of your forward in the virtual screen. Line that white dot up on the “Allow” button and “click” by tapping the swipe pad.
