The app now requests permissions at runtime instead of installation time (Android 6.0+). If you need to use files available on your device in the remote desktop session you need to confirm that the app is allowed to access your local storage.

Note: For desktop connections you can enable redirection of local storage in the additional settings. For published apps and desktops your admin applies the policies for redirection

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • android.permission.ACCESS_DOWNLOAD_MANAGER
