There is another way to check with same which is Settings>Apps> tap on any specific app. this process will help you to check what all settings are under the access of that particular app.

Google Location Services, so whenever you try to set up your Android phone, the long message that appears is nothing more than asking for the accessing the location services of your Android device. You can still disable it through Launch settings> Security & Location, then select Device only option so in this case, Google will only be using the GPS to determine location.

Turning off Location, however, will stop the location access for a lot of other applications too which by Google simply means a lot of features will be turned off. Location History can also be cleared easily this history gets saved by Google Accounts on your Android devices toggle between the accounts individually to clear the data.

My Activity is one of the easiest ways to keep an eye on your data and the settings that have been accessed by Google.
