Because applications do not run in a browser, the way to control the data shared is different, and different by your phone brand, model, or software. The two most common phone software, iOS and Android, have tools to enable you to control what is shared by apps, at an individual app level. Please refer to the settings of your phone to understand what control is available to you.
