@Frontpage32 - is there an easy way to remove all permissions from all apps? Or did you remove just the microphone permission?
Hi I removed all permissions in one shot.
First go to settings
Then scroll down system at the bottom and click on it
Next go to advanced it’s the bottom option select it
Next go to reset options select it…
Now you will see a bunch of option you want reset app preferences. Select that and all done. Then as you use your apps you will have to give them permissions.
If you have mail apps and anti virus open those right away and make sure they have all the permissions they need. You will need to force a scan for it to ask to allow access to your media for the antivirus app. Maybe your SMS?
Other than that I just authorized what the app needed as I go.
Hope this helps.
