How to review android app security permissions 

To review Android app security permissions, follow these steps:
Open Settings: Go to your device's Settings app.

Apps or Applications: Look for the section named "Apps," "Applications," or "App Manager." The name might vary based on your Android version.

App List: Find and select the app you want to review permissions for from the list of installed apps.

App Info: Once you've selected the app, you'll see its App Info page. Look for an option like "App Permissions," "Permissions," or "Permissions Manager."

Review Permissions: In the Permissions section, you'll see a list of permissions that the app has requested. These permissions could include access to things like camera, location, microphone, contacts, etc.

Permission Details: Tap on each permission to get more details about what the app can access. You might see explanations of why the app needs each permission.

Modify Permissions (Optional): Depending on your Android version, you might be able to toggle specific permissions on or off for the app. Be cautious when modifying permissions, as some apps might not function properly if essential permissions are denied.

App Updates: Remember that app permissions might change with updates. It's a good practice to review permissions after app updates, especially if you notice any unexpected behavior.

Uninstall (Optional): If you're uncomfortable with an app's permissions, you can uninstall it from the App Info page.

Keep in mind that some permissions are necessary for certain app features to work correctly. However, if you find an app requesting unnecessary or excessive permissions, it could be a red flag for potential security risks. Always be cautious when granting permissions to apps and consider whether the requested access is reasonable based on the app's functionality.
