Good evening,

for approx the last 2 days I noticed that the blueman applet and rfkill
state request me to enter my password when logging in Gnome Shell.
The following messages in my log might be of relevance:

Any ideas how to change this strange behavior?

You can drop a polkit config file in `/etc/polkit-1/rules.d` to authorize a group or user to access the action `org.blueman.rfkill.setstate`.
