What does "Alert" do?

Hi guys, this is my 2nd post here and I’m wondering what does this “Alert” thing do? It’s on the Security app > Permissions. I haven’t experienced it before.

Here’s a screenshot.


Hmm, I’m not sure but this is a wild guess (while I also think it’s pretty self-explainatory):
Notification selection allows apps to make notifications pop up in status bar and in the drag-down menu, while alert selection lets the app make your phone vibrate and make message tones on the background. You can check it for example by disabling Facebook notifications while chatting with sbdy, and see how the alerts and notifications act with different configurations.

Or maybe it disables the pop up dialogs which apps can through… Like calendar reminders…
Cos I think they are called AlertDialog in code…

Maybe totally wrong though…
