Sounds like you’re buying property doesn’t it?
Nope, we’re talking about app permissions. Permissions that let you fly like an eagle, or that simply track you for no reason.
Let’s dive in to your ability to control these things.
We all have a number of apps. Some more than others, some have Android apps, some not. There are some apps that ask for permissions that you may or may not feel are necessary.
Here is how to modify those permissions.
Go to Settings/Security and Privacy and then choose “Application Permissions”
I chose the “Location” permission for fun, which shows me all the apps I have with that permission granted.
The list is extensive.
If you then click on the app in question, you can toggle on/off the location settings.
I’ve turned off many app permissions.
Of course your location settings are critical for mapping, Foursquare, or any such app, but no harm in checking everything you have.
Why waste bandwidth?
Why send information for no reason?
