Check How to Install Flatseal in Ubuntu

As a sandboxed app format, Flatpak apps must request individual permissions to access various parts of the system or configured hardware, such as permission to access the network, permission to view notifications, permission to read files in the ~/Downloads folder. “Flatseal is a graphical utility that allows you to check and change the basic permissions of your Flatpak apps,” says the Flathub store listing. More than that, Flatseal is a “power user” utility aimed at people who use Flatpak applications extensively.

As such, you do not need to provide simply worded explanations for each right or break things into small sections. This is a tool for people who know what permissions are and why they might want to customize or manage them. Conveniently, the app also includes a “Reset” button that allows you to reset permissions to their default values. This is useful if you make a change that you didn’t mean to, or if you run into problems after making a change.

For those who only have a handful of apps installed, the existing System Preferences window is probably a good way to manage Flatpak permissions. But for those who want more control (and more responsibility), Flatseal is a great tool. Flatseal is free, open source software that can be downloaded from GitHub. It can also be installed via Flathub, the Flatpak app store.
