Under Privacy -> Health the App Messages is listed as an App accessing my Health data, and in the Health App, Massages is listed as a Source.

How do I revoke those permissions?

And is there a way to delete the Health App altogether?


You can't delete the health.app without jail breaking as it isn't listed in the list or delete able built in apps.

Open the Health app and tap the Sources tab.

Tap an app or device.

Then you can disable it as a source.

  • There is no disable button on my health screen. To me, it looks like this: matheplanet.com/matheplanet/nuke/html/uploads/b/… When I click on Messages, it just shows a list of collected data. No option to disable. – Sofnalihg3 Jan 18 at 14:15
  • Any idea why my screen looks different? – Sofnalihg3 Jan 18 at 14:36
  • @Sofnalihg3 have you tried going Settings-> messages or click in messages in health and clicking privacy – user310476 Jan 18 at 15:17
  • Yes, I've tried both of that. Same screen, no ON/OFF switch – Sofnalihg3 Jan 18 at 15:30
  • @Sofnalihg3 ok. Could you please post a photo of the message settings page and the page if you click on messages in the health app – user310476 Jan 18 at 15:35
