Why in the hell would Google Authenticator need access to my camera?

@lrhodes because it scans QR codes in order to add new 2FA tokens

@lrhodes
I commonly add new totps by scanning a QR code.
It can also export all your current ones as a QR code which you can scan from your new device. (After which both devices will show a message for a couple of days that codes have been exported.)
