Android REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES permission for plugins

New Google Play policy will require a declaration for apps using the REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES permission.

This permission is set in the android manifest of capacitor-cordova-android-plugins, which is generated with every build.

Since my app doesn’t install other APK’s I wonder if this permission can be removed. If not what is this permission used for that would comply with the new Google Play policy?

capacitor-cordova-android-plugins permissions come from the cordova plugins you have installed, so you’ll have to check your cordova plugins and remove the one adding REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES permission (or modify it to not require that permission if you need the plugin functionality)
