It's also likely the case that (as others have suggested) if you're doing a
double security poll (or even a tripple one) ala:

   1. Hey we need this permission to get started, do you want to grant it?
   2. Click here to make us request this permission from you, remember to
   click the next dialog on "allow"
   3. Actual permission dialog asking the permission.

Then the attention loss effect is probably knocked on N-fold.
