  • Resolution set to rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this since ABP only utilizes default permissions (mobile data, wifi availability, mobile data availability) which can't be revoked by the user. As long as we don't use any special permissions – which can be revoked – there's no need for a feature like this.
