How to do this?

Please note that the Google Play Store interface might look different on your phone. The options described in the video might be different. The newer Google Play Store interface already includes the Data Safwty feature on the main page. I have included rhe newer experience in the guide below. Enjoy!

  1. Open the Play Store

  2. Open an app of choice

  3. Tap on App Permissions or Data Safety

  4. Survey the permissions and use your best judgment downloading the app
