Location permission


My Application is just a file manager. But BB10 shows that it requires the Location permission
making the users scary and urge to uninstall.
But the code does not have anything which could request the current device location!
I tried to remove all the third party libraries, did not change a thing.


This is how the location permission is shown in the settings:

I tried to create an empty application with the same list of permissions in the manifest,
but it did not request neither location permission nor file access.

Here's the list of permissions in the manifest.xml
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="com.android.launcher.permission.INSTALL_SHORTCUT" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />
 But even if I comment them out, the result does not change.


Please help!

Re: Location permission

Best to ask in the Android forum since this appears to be an Android permissions.

Re: Location permission

Ok, thank you, I've reposed the question in the Android section.
