Is there a way in the UI (eg without having to download/extract the .adb and open the app's AndroidManifest.xml file) to view the complete list of permissions that are requested by a given app?

Note I'm trying to get the actual list of permissions

I'm not asking for the over-simplified human-readable permissions:

How can I get a complete list of permissions for a given app?

    What about an open source app: github.com/mirfatif/PermissionManagerX? Disclosure: I'm the author of the app. Sep 26, 2021 at 11:00

    I am a happy user of the app by @IrfanLatif

    That's a closed source feature: mirfatif.github.io/PermissionManagerX/help/help.html#faq22. adb shell dumpsys package is the easy way though, without requiring any third party app. Sep 26, 2021 at 12:21

    The application named App Manager available in F-Droid allows the user to see all permissions, regardless of whether the app is installed for the primary user or secondary users.

    Next to the excellent app by @IrfanLatif there are several other apps to inspect apps, not only for permissions but also for other resources (Manifest, libraries / tracking modules and more). Apologies for shameless self-promotion – but we learned here that apps get unlisted, and my lists are kept updated ;)
