Request auto connect network-manager for Security Bear

Security Bear is software that grants an easy way for devices to manage and connect first time to WiFi.

Embedded device come out of the factory with this software pre-installed.
User opens hotspot with the default name and password of the software for first time connection with the device.
After the device is connected to the hotspot the user update both First priority and Second priority WiFi names and password, default name and password are deleted (for security reasons) as they were stored in First priority.

Now the user is connected to his desired WiFi and have a way to connect to the device in case there is a connection problem (like Second priority WiFi changed password without updating the software beforehand).

network-manager is required to get the list of all the WiFi names that the device found.
Without it the bash command
nmcli -f ssid dev wifi
does not work.
The auto connect plugs network, network-bind do not work.

Given the description of the snap, this seems reasonable to expect as a user that it can manage network connections, hence +1 from me for auto-connect of network-manager.
