As far as i know. The way Android storage works is as follows. There is internal storage and external storage.
Internal storage is for the apps data only and apps can only access their particular data. No permission needed.
External storage is phone's own storage and also removeable storage (removeable micro sd card) both are to store files and media. Apps need Permission to access through storage permission (read/write).
Does storage permission only means phone's own storage or also the removeable micro sd card? I am confused
I just want to make sure that all files in my micro sd card are safe and apps can't access them without my permission.
Edit: Android 12 but I am also wondering about previous versions. Also I have my sd card mounted as Portable Storage (not Adaptable Storage)
Thank you. Please let me know
