@bodymindpower Thank you.

I created there new issue and solved now working in my laptop.

but i have 1 question
i want to remove storage permission and location permission ok.

so need past below text as per your video tutorial or remove the text of permission name

can you provide the direct edited Kodular companion app, that would be easy

Yes, I could do that, but I’m not sure if @Kodular would be amused about it.
As I have shown, it doesn’t even take 1 min to do it yourself.


i want to remove storage permission from my application.

so i need to remove this line from manifest.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

no other line need to enter or remove

I am right ?

Check, next are you 100% sure any of the components or extensions need that permission before deleting it !!!

You must also remove this line:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

Note: If your app requires these READ / WRITE permissions, an error message will appear after the permissions are removed from the Manifest.

I was the doubt that you now cleared.

Thank you :blush: :blush:

I removed the READ / WRITE permissions from almost all of my apps because they are not needed there, but have still been added to the Manifest.

My motivation for this:
I would like that no (dangerous) permission at install-time has to be requested and granted for devices with Android < 6 (API level < 23).

Note: If these permissions are not removed from the Manifest, they must be granted on devices with Android versions < 6 at install-time in order to be able to install the app.

excuse me @bodymindpower I used your given companion app, when I every time open the app it shows me Admob monetize ad alert, the companion is not still connected to the creator, and I don’t have ads on the creator also, this is a bug?
