How to manage special permissions in MIUI

Hello friends! It is possible to remove the most sensitive permissions to applications that do not need them. To thus protect your privacy to the maximum. Permissions management has been a particular section of Xiaomi phones. Even before Google bet on introducing this feature natively in Android. You could say that Xiaomi was a little ahead of the curve thanks to this feature. Right now, it has several sections to manage them. Within the MIUI settings, you can find a section intended for the so-called special permissions. In this post, we show you how to manage special permissions in MIUI. This way you can make your phone more secure and deny them to apps that you consider do not need them to perform their main function.

How to manage special permissions in Xiaomi

If you open the menu of the three dots at the bottom of the screen of each permission. You will be able to show the apps of the system and remove or grant them the permissions you deem necessary.

Authorization and revocation of usage data in MIUI

Another option that Xiaomi has is the authorization and revocation of usage data. Which will allow you to revoke permission to collect your usage data for some apps. We’ll show you how to take advantage of this option to restrict what your apps know about you. It is one of the most interesting security-related options that you can take advantage of in apps that you don’t use. You can revoke the permissions to collect usage data that you have granted to some apps on your Xiaomi phone. These are not conventional permissions that you will find in the settings section. Rather, they are found in a different section. Follow these steps:

First step

Open Settings.

As you can see, the apps that appear in this section for you to grant or revoke their permissions are system apps. In many cases, you will not be able to use them if you do not grant them this permission, so you must choose well to which app you remove it.

This is an interesting option to remove permissions to system applications if you do not use them. Contributing to increasing your privacy in conjunction with the special permissions option. When you disable any switch, it will show you a warning that the data that has been previously collected will be deleted. And that the app in question will be rendered virtually unusable. Thanks for reading. Goodbye!
