Hello. I was scrolling through my installed app section and enabled show system apps and saw these 3 apps -> 1. IMS logger 2. IMS Service and 3. IMS Settings were installed. These apps have used 272 MB of data, 6% battery and 16 MB memory. How come these 3 apps are using identical resources? There is no option for uninstalling the apps and also disable option is greyed out. Upon searching "IMS logger in Samsung device" in Google revealed a link which is mentioned below which says that Samsung device is vulnerable to network snooping and unwarranted screen recording. Why the ims logger and settings need the permission for storage and telephone? While the ims service has access to all the permission. Why? I never gave any permission. What is the purpose of these 3 apps?
Link:
Can anyone explain. Thanks.

The IMS Service or IP Multimedia Subsystem Service is present in the Android software of the phone such as the Note 9 and allows the device to work properly with a vendor or carrier provided communication app. This makes calls and SMS to be delivered via an IP network
