Just like Cupcake is doing:

Personally I lean towards the "it shouldn't be on by default" position but it's up to you to determine the advantages/disadvantages of that approach.

Seems to be the "background" permission,

We could maybe declare it as an optional permission and then conditionally request it at runtime with the permissions api,
