Wi-fi permission?

While setting the bulb up it asks for a permission to turn on or off the wi-fi. I didn’t see this question in any of the setup videos i’ve watched. Is there a reason for this?

It’s asking you to allow the app to control the phone’s wifi so it can set up the bulb

I understand that. But what i am asking is why didn’t it need the same permission while others were setting their bulbs up? And it controlled my wifi anyway even though i denied the permission.

I’m not sure cuz I have an iPhone. Maybe they already gave the permission when first opening the app.

That makes sense. Thank you.
