PWA installation is not itself a mitigation strategy for sensors privacy&security risks, it just might (or might not!) indicate that the user trusts the origin but [all risks](https://w3c.github.io/sensors/#main-privacy-security-threats) still remain. And we have already [embarked on Permissions API](https://w3c.github.io/sensors/#permissions) to allow the user grant or deny access to a certain sensor class.

It could be so that some permissions are granted to a PWA during installation, but it is not within a Generic Sensor' issue. Pls. refer to the dedicated https://github.com/w3c/manifest/issues/395
