AquaMail created several accounts under Android's Accounts menu in Settings. Are those accounts, their names and email addresses accessible to other apps with accounts permission?

Whatever is visible in Phone Settings -> Accounts can be read by any app that has the "get accounts" permission (which on Android 6.0+ is part of the Contacts permission group).

Thank you. Is there a way to rid Settings  -> Accounts of all of the email addresses which I use AquaMail to check? I don't want the whole world to know all of them.

There isn't.

OK, thank you. It's just that a lot of apps have this permission. I used to have xprivacy, a module working under the xposed framework dealing with it, but since I upgraded to Nougat I haven't found a solution.
