    I am using App Permissions to set permissions that the various apps are allowed to use. As an example, the app Waze wants to use "Read Contacts". Since I am using Waze to navigate only I do not feel that the app needs access to my contacts. Therefore I have set it to "always deny".
    Next I unchecked "Show Notifications" in the app.
    However, whenever I start Waze a notification appears for several seconds "Waze is denied to read contacts".
    I have other apps with the same issue. Any way to get rid of this type of notification?
    I am using Android 4.4.2

    I imagine that the notification that you are getting is from the app that is denying the other app access. I don't think that is coming from the Waze app. The App Permissions app is letting you know that it completed the task. Is there a menu in the Permissions app where you can turn off the notifications from that app.

    Based on what you wrote, what the app is supposed to do it sounds like its working as designed. Keep in mind the reason Waze may want to access your contacts if you you decide to travel to a contact it can locate the address information. I assume there are voice controls associated with it.

    The "permission denied" is coming from Waze. Since I did indeed set permissions such that Waze does not have access to my Contacts it is complaining about it. What I would like to do is NOT getting reminded every time I use the app that the app does not have access to my contacts.

    Raptor007: You are correct: The app is working fine. My issue is that I don't want to get reminded by the various apps that they don't have access to whatever. One alternative might be to simply set up fictitious files - in the Waze case it would be Contacts. However, I don't know enough about the OS to be able to set up two different contact files: One I want to use but not share, the other for an app that thinks it needs access to that file.

    You don't need to uninstal the software. Just go to settings -> security -> ask permission -> go to apps then select the app. Get position then allow always.

    Did you ever find an answer to this question elsewhere? I have looked and looked.

    Long-press the notification - you should get an "App info" item. Tap that and you'll see which app is giving you the notification. You probably can't turn off just one notification in that app, but at least you'll know where to look.

    (If you're rooted and running Xposed, run NotifyClean and you can tell it to "eat" one particular notification. It kills all of any app's notifications, single ones, or has all of an app's notifications ignored. But it runs under Xposeds, so the phone has to be rooted.)
