Allow CaptivePortalLogin to access photos, media and files on your device

Experience with Android devices is small as we standarize on Apple devices for corporate use.

 

We have a captive portal setup for students (open) that simply does mac caching after they authenticate via LDAP. This was done a long time ago in a galaxy far far away in order to avoid guest licenses.

 

Anyway, we've gotten a couple of reports of a message poping up on user's devices (looks like newer Samsung) that once they connect to the network and the authentication screen pops up, they get a message.

 

I seriously doubt this is coming from CPPM but can't seem to find any references out there other than it's more than likely the "wifi router" asking for these permissions.

 

Anyone else familiar with this? I select deny, and can't reproduce the problem again, nor can't find a setting that has this option.

It's to allow for download of a configuration package. It should only pop up
the first time.

Ok.  Glad someone has an idea. We're not pushing anything to it. Anything I can do from our end to prevent this popup, or it's simply something the user would have to accept or deny?

 

Like I said, I can't find where the setting is stored so I can default it. 

 

TIA.

It's like any other app on Android. Requesting permissions is normally a
good thing. In this case, it's just an unfortunate side effect of privacy
options.



I don't think there is anything you can do.
