How does it work?

First, download the app. Once you do, you have to grant bouncer access to perform its duties as an app. Continue using your apps as you normally would. When its time to witness bouncer, you would know. It only comes up when you are required to toggle permission.

For example, an app has just requested permission and you grant it. Well, Bouncer will display a notification that asks whether or not you would like to revoke the permission later on.

If you choose to keep the apps permission enabled, the bouncer can certainly help you with that. Simply select the “Keep” option if you want to enable the permission, and select “Schedule” to enable the App’s permission but with a delay.

if you also decide not to enable an app’s permission? What you have to do here is to select the “Remove” option. When you select “Remove,” Bouncer will immediately open the app’s settings after you have closed the app and will revoke the app’s permission.
