About permissions and trust status for third-party applications

You or your administrator can set permissions that control how third-party applications on your BlackBerry smartphone interact with the other applications on your smartphone. For example, you can control whether third-party applications can access data or the Internet, make calls, or track your location. Some applications require specific permissions to work.

If you have added a third-party application to your smartphone, your smartphone is designed to prevent the application from sending or receiving data without your knowledge. The first time that you open a third-party application, you might be prompted to trust the application or to set permissions for it. If you trust the application, your smartphone sets most permissions for the application to Allow. You can change the permissions for a specific application or all applications in the smartphone options.
