Question:

Question: My phone isn’t allowing my Instagram and Snapchat to use the camera.

Each time I try to use the camera in either app, it says I need to allow camera access. However, my camera settings tells me I don’t have any apps requesting camera access. I’ve tried advanced settings, but nothing comes up. How can this be resolved?

Answer:
Answer:

This privacy setting the phone's camera is to prevent an app accessing the camera without your knowledge.


So......


In IOS Go to:

Preferences

Privacy

Camera (I don't use either, but these apps may also need access to the photos app)

Locate the programs that are not allowing access to the camera and enable access. (flagged green)


The same is for the photos following the same steps just replace "photos" for "camera" in the steps.
