Game Pass Allow Access to Info - Feature Request

Whilst I am very impressed with the Windows PC Game Pass app there is one feature that I would love to see added, a global setting that allows access to information for any game you install. As in the image below, if you have not previously installed a game on PC Game Pass app and install it for the firs time this pops up.  Now, you would think this would happen just once, the first time you install the Game Pass Windows App, you allow access to information and that is it, all the games are allowed access to your information.

Not that difficult to use, the process basically creates another shortcut that is saved in a folder named TILECONIFY in your Start Menu.
