Loan lending apps are known for accessing phone contacts and sending messages to your contacts immediately after they have given you a loan. It becomes more worse when you default since they will go through your phone book and call your contacts and send them messages too.
There are several tricks you can use to stop them from accessing your contacts. The tricks include :
1.Uninstall the apps.
Once you delete the respective apps, they will no longer use those permission because its gone from your system.
2.Deny app permissions.
When installing the apps on your phone, 'permission' is asked by the app for photos, messages and contacts. This means that the app will be able to access the contacts and messages. Therefore, remember when installing the app read carefully what access you are providing to that particular app before you grant it the permission to access your private details.
If accidentally you have granted the permission for the app, you can can still deny it by going to settings - Permission-review the permission a particular app is having and deactivate it if you think that app should not have the access.
