    Hi Windows Central,

    I am considering migrating from BlackBerry 10 OS to Windows Phone OS. The most favorite thing about the BB10 is that you can set permissions for apps upon install and then if needed you can edit those permissions. As far as I know, Android doesn't have such a thing.

    Does WP allow setting and editing app permissions? I ask this because sometimes I feel that for example a messaging app's location or even microphone request should be denied, as I won't be using voice messages, neither I wan't to accidentally send a voice message to anyone, which has once happened to me with allowed microphone access.

    You mean Wp8.1.2 and later, right? If so, Yes.

    You can change the permissions under Privacy Settings . OS in screenshot: W10m...

    Yes! You have options for each thing. But it wont ask during install, only for location it will ask permission. You have to disable it manually in settings.
