HTC 10™ - Turn App Permissions On / Off

Note Notes:

  • Downloaded apps designed for Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up only ask for permission the first time you use a feature rather than asking for permissions out of context.
  • Turning off certain permissions may result in basic features no longer working as intended.

To turn permissions on or off for installed apps:

  1. From a Home screen, navigate: Apps icon Apps icon > Settings Settings icon > Apps (Device section).
  2. Ensure All apps is selected at the top.
    Note If necessary, tap the Dropdown icon Dropdown icon (upper-right) then select All apps.
  3. Locate then tap the app name (e.g., Cloud).
    Note If system apps aren't visible, tap the Menu icon Menu (upper-right) > Show system.
  4. If available, tap Permissions.
  5. Tap any of the available permissions (e.g., Camera, Contacts, Location, etc.) to turn on Switch on or off Switch off.
    Note If turning off a permission, from the "If you deny this permission..." prompt, select Cancel or Deny.
