Is it okay to remove WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission?

"WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" is a recommended permission but not a mandatory one. We suggest to include this permission but feel free to remove it if you have any conflicts. 

If you are implementing the Vungle SDK as AAR via Maven(and not implementing via JARs), please add below line to your project manifest to remove the "WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"  permission.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" android:maxSdkVersion="18" tools:node="remove"/>
