My phone has Bloatware and 3rd party apps that has permissions to every single thing on my phone which includes access to phone numbers messages location accounts passwords literally everything that's on my phone.

If you press + hold the app or game icon, there should be an option to 'Disable' or 'Uninstall.'

If either of those aren't available, while in the menu that's popped up when pressing & holding the app icon, press 'App info' > scroll down & click on 'Permissions.'

There'll be 2 sections: Allowed, & Denied. For everything in Allowed, click each item (e.g. location, contacts, camera), then click 'Deny.' Press back on nav bar (or do the back gesture swipe), and keep doing this until all the things you want to Deny are listed under 'Denied.'

It is very easy and simple to disable, "Bloatware", on the Galaxy S20.

Hope that helps.

Some apps will not work if you turn off permissions, so be warned. If you go to settings, apps and look at each individual app you can see and change what permissions they have. Don't forget you can just disable bloatware.
