Projucer always exports ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION permission for Android

when I export an Android project with the projucer it always ‘projuces’ a manifest.xml entry

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION">

Is there any way to stop it, to avoid the need for manually cleaning up the manifest?
Is that a projucer bug?

I would not want to place an app in the store that suspiciously has interest in the users location with no reason…

It’s required for bluetooth MIDI on Android. You can remove it by unsetting the “Bluetooth Permissions Required” setting in the Projucer Android exporter.


cool, good to know, thank you
