Default permission policy


The default permission policy is used for all apps unless permission is separately defined on the app level. For kiosk mode, the default permission is always "Grant a permission" automatically.

If default permission policy chosen is being changed, it will affect all chosen applications. 
HMD Enable Pro companion app permission policy is always 'Grant a permission'" 

Note: before applying the changes, the system requests a confirmation to update default permission policy for all applications.
