How to revoke address book access from OpenPhone

When you install OpenPhone, you're asked to grant OpenPhone access to your phone's address book.

Granting access has these benefits:

  1. You get to know when incoming OpenPhone calls and messages come from your existing contacts

  2. You can call and text your existing contacts without having to look up their phone number

You can use the app without granting access to your address book and, if you ever want to revoke access, it's easy!
