After accepting the Term and Conditions in order to download an app, can I change my mind and reverse my permission for the App supplier to monitor some of my activity?  My smart phone is a Samsung S7. Confused

You can modify app permissions on your phone.

Most legitimate apps require their permissions in order to function properly.

The linked article is closed so I’m responding here.  I’m pretty sure I have the newest Android version on my phone and things did not looks exactly as described.  Under “Settings” I did not see “Apps” but rather “Applications”.  Clicking on that brought up a short list that started with “Applications manager”.  I had to click on that to get to the full list of Apps.
