Android 11 file manager apps can request device’s file access starting May

To stop unwanted apps from having broad storage permission when there is no need for one, Google brought Scoped Storage restrictions with Android 11. Before this, however, all apps could declare “READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” permission, and have access to all files on the device. To ensure that file manager apps that need legitimate access to the stored files, Google allowed them to target Android 10 (API level 29) for the legacy storage access rights.
