All MaaS360 apps are now compliant with Android 13

Release Notes


MaaS360 is now fully compatible with Android 13 and adopts all the behavior changes related to Android 13.


Notification permission changes in MaaS360 container apps

If a user installs a MaaS360 container app on a device that runs Android 13 or higher, the app's notifications are off by default. MaaS360 displays a new runtime notification permission request on the app's first run. The app notifications wait until the user grants that permission to that app.

If users deny the runtime notification permission, MaaS360 displays a rationale screen that explains why the app needs the runtime notification permission, encouraging users to grant the permission.

  • The notification permission is madatory for the VPN and Remote Control apps.
