Controlling app permissions

When you use apps the first time, you'll be prompted to grant them permissions to access certain data or features, such as your location, storage, or microphone. This gives you more control over your apps.
  • If you suspect a certain app of being malicious or requesting unnecessary permissions, you should choose Deny.
  • If you choose Deny in a trusted app, it might not work or have limited functionality. If this happens, go to Settings to change the app permissions.
  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings > Apps & notifications.
  2. Tap Advanced > Permissions manager.
  3. Tap a data type or feature to check which apps have permissions to use it.
  4. Tap an app. Choose whether to allow or deny it access to the data or feature.
Tip: To change the different types of permissions for an app, press and hold the app on the Home screen or Apps screen, and then tap Information icon > Permissions.
