It is, and you need to both leave it on, and select what gets to use it, and when.

If it's an option, choose "when using the app". Some just don't ever get to use it (like Amazon), and some won't operate properly without it (like Gas Buddy). So you choose the apps permissions.

And, if you're on Android, you need to re-check them every once in a while. Apps have the ability to change some settings behind your back. So keep your eyes out for that. Once set, they should _never_ change, unless you change them, or you give the app permission to change them. It's part of the problem with Google Play...anyone can publish, and they're not all safe coders.

AVG Cleaner seems to also be good at taking care of that. It pops up every time the phone is charged and re-shuts down processes it had previously shut down but came back to life on their own.
