Detached app crashes on ImagePicker

Hey, Expo is awesome!

Getting a crash with detached app when trying to use ImagePicker. Seems like there is some issue with asking photo library/camera permission. Xcode shows: CRASHING_DUE_TO_PRIVACY_VIOLATION

Camera and PhotoLibrary work fine in Expo app. Tried on a clean project right after detaching - same issue. Any ideas?

Also, do you plan adding support for phone authentification with FB Account Kit? One of the reasons i had to detach is to use it (


Hi, what do the camera and photos usage descriptions look like under your detached project’s Info.plist?

Seems like I don’t have these items

Ah, sorry that wasn’t obvious. You’d need to add those keys for those APIs to work.

I can make it so we auto-configure those for you when you detach. I’ll make myself a task. Thanks for raising this!

Yep, added, works great. Thank you so much!

I am facing same problem…but my app is not detached. so dont have any plist file.
what can i do?
