Android Production:

This package automaticly adds an extra permission to install apps from Android 8 & above.

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES" />

For most cases you don't want this permission in Production. To remove this. Add the following lines to the AndroidManifest.xml for the flavour/buildtype where you don't want this permission

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    package="your-package-name">

    <uses-permission
        android:name="android.permission.REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES"
        tools:node="remove" />

</manifest>

In most cases you will place this in

/android/app/src/release/AndroidManifest.xml

But if you are using a flavour like prod, alpha, beta it will probably only be added here:

/android/app/src/prod/AndroidManifest.xml

This will make sure that the permission is only removed in prod so you can still install updates in beta & alpha
