The UserEnvironment capability controls access to APIs that reveal information about the environment of the device, for example the camera and microphone

This capability allows the software to record audio, use camera etc. This capability does not allow determining the user's location. For that, see Location.

This capability can be used with self-signed applications.


These APIs could be used to spy on people. Users can decide whether or not to install self signed software that uses these APIs, depending on their level of privacy concerns.


Camera and audio recording APIs require this capability.


Any application that needs to use the camera or microphone.
