Permission error in BroadcastReceiver

I gave the

READ_SMS
as well as
READ_CALL_LOG
permission in manifest file but still I am getting
SecurityException
in my
BroadcastReceiver
.

Code:

@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
getMissedCallCount(context);
getUnreadSMSCount(context);
}

private void getMissedCallCount(Context context) {
if (ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(context, Manifest.permission.READ_CALL_LOG) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
Log.d("Call Logs permission", "Not provided...");
return;
}
String[] projection = {CallLog.Calls.CACHED_NAME, CallLog.Calls.CACHED_NUMBER_LABEL, CallLog.Calls.TYPE};
String where = CallLog.Calls.TYPE + "=" + CallLog.Calls.MISSED_TYPE;
Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query(CallLog.Calls.CONTENT_URI, projection, where, null, null);
c.moveToFirst();
Log.d("CALL COUNT: ", ""+c.getCount());
c.close();
}


Log:

Call Logs permission: Not provided...


Any idea about this problem?

Answer

Here is the code:

Check For Permissions:

// Assume thisActivity is the current activity
    int permissionCheck = ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(thisActivity,Manifest.permission.READ_SMS);

The following code checks if the app has permission to read the user's contacts, and

Requests the permission if necessary:

// Here, thisActivity is the current activity
if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(thisActivity,Manifest.permission.READ_SMS)!= PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {

    // Should we show an explanation?
    if (ActivityCompat.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(thisActivity,Manifest.permission.READ_SMS)) {

        // Show an explanation to the user *asynchronously* -- don't block
        // this thread waiting for the user's response! After the user
        // sees the explanation, try again to request the permission.

    } else {

        // No explanation needed, we can request the permission.

        ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(thisActivity,new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_SMS},MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_SMS);

        // MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_SMS is an
        // app-defined int constant. The callback method gets the
        // result of the request.
    }
}
