is there an android permission to forbid apps from connecting to the internet?
if not, then there should be!
Implying Andorid apps actually follow user-set permissions, brave
There are apps available on F-Droid to prevent apps from connecting to the internet. Afwall+ uses Linux iptables to prevent connections, while Netguard uses the VPN system.
There's a few internet permissions,
- Receive data from Internet
- Have full network access
- View network connections
- Change network connectivity
- View WiFi connections
These are just the ones I grabbed from Play Store's permissions
- Download files without permission
From Chrome's list of permissions
These are the permissions I could find, but you can't directly toggle them off in the settings
