How to remove the background audio recording settings menu in the KoboCollect application so that recordings continue to run automatically

Dear community
With the background audio recording feature, survey data becomes more reliable, because it can reduce data fraud by enumerators. But unfortunately in the KoboCollect application a menu is provided to disable this recording feature. Maybe someone knows how to remove the menu?

Hello,
I think, according to general data protection requirements, you should never record someone without explicite (even documentable) consent.

@Xiphware, maybe this is something we could add/improve in the upcoming days?

Yes, I agree with @Kal_Lam. we need background audio recording as evidence of the interview. Or it can be made mandatory or not
