Disabling Extension Pop-ups

New Contributor

I'm working in a K-12 environment and we restrict certain apps on student laptops, such as Music, News, Stocks, Messages, Home, TV, etc.

This is being managed through a Configuration Profile, rather than in Restricted Software.

While this works for blocking those apps from launching, we're experiencing pop-ups informing the users that they don't have permissions to run app extensions within these apps when those extensions run on their own.

Examples include: NewsToday2, MailCacheDelete, MusicCacheExtension, TVCacheExtension,MessagesCacheExtension, HomeExtension

Any idea on how to disable these intermittent pop-ups? Devices are 2020 M1 MacBook Airs, running on 13.4.

In the Restricted Software item, clear the text in the message field and it should not pop anything up to the user. 


On a side note. I cannot stress enough, update your Macs. MacOS 13.4.1, and 13.5.2 patched significant 0-day vulnerabilities.
