2. Select audio


The permission prompt should appear with no remember my choice option.


The permission prompt appears with a remember my choice option. It appears to be functional as well. This is unsafe to expose to the web in general - remember my choice was not supposed to be exposed right now generally for gUM due to privacy concerns.

I agree this might be a concern, may we get UX confirm on this? There's remember my choice in the design document.

BTW shall we distinguish web and app in this case?

See Remember my choice cannot be implemented generally for all permission cases because a user would be required to have an easy path to forgot my choice for privacy reasons. jesup & pauljt could give more information on this if need be.

> BTW shall we distinguish web and app in this case?

In bug 898986, we concluded enabling remember my choice for an app was on the table as an option potentially if the settings app perms UI grants control audio/video capture permissions. When I tested this implementation, it looks like the settings apps permissions implementation is not updated to include audio/video capture permissions, which means we can't enable remember my choice safely yet. Given that we're past feature complete, that likely means we're going to have to go with the decision to disable remember my choice across the board then to meeting the privacy requirements we have.
