Apps on your phone need access to your information such as your Location, Camera, Microphone etc. to provide services. e.g. Your cab hailing app needs access to your location, your chat apps require access to microphone and camera. However some of the apps may misuse these permissions and steal your information or use them to monitor your actions. Hence it is extremely important to review permissions provided to apps on your phone frequently.
INFOSECYOUR Mobile Security and Password Manager App provides the App permissions review feature which lets you select the permissions that you want to review and provides the list of apps that have permission to the particular resource. Click here to get it for free if you haven’t already.
After reviewing the permissions for each resource, if you want to change permissions given to apps, click on the settings gear icon at the top.
This will open the settings page. Tap on the App permissions option.
