Android install asks for location permission, not needed

Post by trevix » Tue Jun 02, 2020 3:17 pm

Installing an alpha test of my Android standalone, I am asked for location permission (and bluetooth, but that's correct).
There is nothing that I can see in the LC Standalone setting that would require such permission (see attachment).
Or is this related to Google Play console setting? If yes, wich one?
Thanks

Hello Roberto,

The location permission is required for the Flic button.

Kind regards,

On Android only? Never asked on iOS

Yes, just on Android:

Before scanning however, we need to acquire the Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission by asking the user. This is due to a requirement of the Android platform in order to scan for Bluetooth Low Energy devices

(From the flic docs here: https://github.com/50ButtonsEach/flic2l ... ew-buttons)

Kind regards,
Panos
