Why does freedompop message app want to turn on camera of my phone?

I have an app to monitor and control actions of apps in my phone. Quite often, I noticed that freedompop tends to turn on the camera of my phone. I wonder if it is true that freedompop would access the camera. What data are collected by the app when turning on the camera?

    This is my first "smart" phone and I've noticed that most apps require "permission" to access the camera, microphone, contacts, etc. They also state that they may edit contacts, send texts, delete texts, make calls, etc.

    Sloppy programmers asking for more permissions than they actually need makes it easier for the the bad guys to get in. Sorry to say, but the default Messenger on Android 6.0 asks for the same thing :(

    So its not just freedompop doing it.
