Hi All

The manifest file generated in the objects folder includes additional permissions that are not listed in B4A project's manifest file. The following permissions raised some questions when we tried to deploy the apk to a POS device.

•    android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS, this allow an app to read or write the secure system settings.
•    android.permission.UPDATE_DEVICE_STATS, this allow the app to update the device statistics.
•    android.permission.REBOOT, this allow the app to reboot the device.
•    android.permission.DEVICE_POWER, this allow the app to turn the phone on or off.
How do I know which parts of the code are adding these permissions and what is the workaround if we have to remove them?
