Notification Access and Notification Listener Policy

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

The notification access and notification listener policy covers the following permission and configuration.

  • The ACCESS_NOTIFICATIONS privileged permission allows an app to read the current set of notifications, including any metadata and attached intents.
  • An app can be designated as a default notification listener by adding its package name to config_defaultListenerAccessPackages in config.xml or any OEM overlays. A default notification listener is granted access to all incoming notifications, but access to notifications can be turned off by users in the Notification Access settings in the Settings app.
