People logging into your app won't be able to grant unapproved permissions. Only people listed in the Roles section of your App Dashboard can grant any permission without approval by Facebook. As indicated in the Facebook Developers FAQ

  • Go to the 'Status & Review' tab.
  • Click the 'Start a Submission' button.
