Button Mapper uses Android’s Accessibility Service framework. This is used to detect when the physical or capacitive buttons are pressed on your device so they can be remapped. This allows people with disabilities to more easily use their device. It is not used to see what you type. Nothing you type on the software keyboard can be detected. Accessibility also allows Button Mapper to see which app is currently showing on your screen. This is used for custom key actions that need to know the current context, for example, whether the home screen is showing or whether a specific app is open.  Button Mapper does not collect or share any of your personal information.
