I have an S20 FE and when trying to turn off permissions for Samsung's pre installed apps like Bixby Voice I find it is not possible. How can I be in control of my data/privacy if I'm not in control of all the permissions on my phone?
Moreover, I really don't see how the app needs these permissions all the time? All this from an app that I don't want and can't uninstall...?
I have my location turned off and make a habit of it when I'm not using maps. Something on my phone keeps turning it back on again, without my permission. The little location pin appears at the top right of screen in the status bar and when I drag down from the top of the screen to access the quick access menu I find the location services are turned back on again. Usually, if an app without permission requests location access you get a pop-up with a request for permission. This doesn't happen and the only app with undeniable permission to my phones location all the time is Bixby Voice. I thought that I was mistaken at first but its happening regularly. Its happened twice while writing this post. Can someone explain why please? Is anyone else experiencing this?
