CrossMedia & WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

We use the Xamarin Media plugin to take pictures in our app. I understand this requires the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission for Android. This permission is getting tagged during a security scan. We don't save any pictures to an sd card and only convert the pictures to a byte array to save to a local SQLite database. Is there any way around having to have this permission enabled?

    If you are not writing to the external storage, you can remove that. but remember that "external storage" does not necessarily mean the sdcard. Some internal disk space is designated as emulated storage which is logically external storage, even though it is physically internal storage.
