Features

  • Check if a permission is granted.
  • Request permission for a specific feature.
  • Open app settings so the user can enable a permission.
  • Show a rationale for requesting permission (Android).

Usage

To use this plugin, add permission_handler as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file. For example:

dependencies:
  permission_handler: '^2.0.0'

NOTE: There's a known issue with integrating plugins that use Swift into a Flutter project created with the Objective-C template. See issue Flutter#16049 for help on integration.

API

Requesting permission

import 'package:permission_handler/permission_handler.dart';

Map<PermissionGroup, PermissionStatus> permissions = await PermissionHandler().requestPermissions([PermissionGroup.contacts]);

Checking permission

import 'package:permission_handler/permission_handler.dart';

PermissionStatus permission = await PermissionHandler().checkPermissionStatus(PermissionGroup.contacts);

Open app settings

import 'package:permission_handler/permission_handler.dart';

bool isOpened = await PermissionHandler().openAppSettings();

Show a rationale for requesting permission (Android only)

import 'package:permission_handler/permission_handler.dart';

bool isShown = await PermissionHandler().shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(PermissionGroup.contacts);

This will always return false on iOS.
