When I install apps, I rarely look at the app permissions. I usually I assume that because I've read about the app online, and it has been downloaded thousands of times, then it is safe to download.

Do you check app permissions before installing an app? Can anything bad happen if I don't?

yes, I always read the permission.
if a app requires my personal information and phone id I just ignore that app.

@Mobile Crackers, :O Do you say "I ignore the app that requires personal information?" Then I am sure you haven't installed (devil) What's app, Candy Crush, Angry Birds Space :? Because I guess these application requires permission to access personal information. :P

Here i'll support @Scott I also use to do the same as I already read about the application thousand times ..... and I am sure any vulnerable application isn't going to get, that much popularity ..... (cool)
