I have an app on my Android 7.1 device. As you may see in the image; app has no granted permissions even though I explicitly gave the WiFi permissions to this app.

I am sure some of the constitutional plugins used by this app requested the permissions.

Is there any way I can control the permissions I gave and possible revert them.

Let me know if you need more details.

    What do you mean by "WiFi permissions"? When a developer adds the ability to access Internet, it is automatically granted when you launch an app. Android does not ask for any explicit "WiFi permissions". – SSS Jun 14 '18 at 19:45
  • I think it is this one... <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" /> – prosti Jun 14 '18 at 19:56
  • Is this an app that you've created yourself? If so you should read the Android developer docs on protection levels, there are certain permissions that will not be asked for by the system and will be granted automatically. The "Permissions" section will show everything that you've given access to – SSS Jun 14 '18 at 20:20
  • Nope. This is not my app. – prosti Jun 14 '18 at 20:26
  • Can you clarify the question then? What exactly are you looking for? – SSS Jun 14 '18 at 20:28
