Additionally, an 'account authenticator' might restrict the actions an app can perform with the account (so it would e.g. be possible to administrate this via some web interface offered by the service). android.permission.BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices. android.permission.BROADCAST_STICKY: Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. android.permission.CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device. android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state. android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service. android.permission.GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced. android.permission.INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher. android.permission.INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets. android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS: The API documentation is not that clear about this permission.

In most cases, 'credentials' just means the corresponding authenticator creates a fitting token and hands that over (though, how to deal with that is left to the authenticator).
