    Permission requests


    I set up family safety for my 12 year old daughter, and ticked all the apps she can use freely. Every time she logs on the computer it pops up little messages telling her to request permission to use all the apps that I didn't give her access to. It's very annoying, so how do I stop it, other than the obvious but unhelpful step of letting her access everything?

    Hello Andy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The apps that are checked are the ones that are blocked instead. Only the unchecked ones are allowed.
    When you get a request to allow an app and either allow or block it as per the tutorial below, you and the user should not see the messages for that app anymore.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
