    Is there a way to whitelist an app or disable it?

    There's a lot of viable options for firewall apps available in the Play Store. They'll let you selectively block apps and services from any online access for both WiFi and cellular connectivity. If your phone isn't rooted, take a look at NoRoot Data Firewall, it has a good feature set:

    There's also NetGuard, an Open Source project that's well supported with frequent updates. (But I've read comments elsewhere that it's a little heavy on ads.)

    NoRoot Firewall is very popular but it hasn't been updated since 2014 so that's something to take into consideration.

    If you've rooted your phone, I really like AFWall+
