I want to state to you, that I DO NOT AUTHORIZE MY SOFTWARE ON MY DEVICES, FILES, PROGRAMS, APPS, ETC, anywhere to be open source!!! I am not consenting to my things that I work and pay for to be accessed, changed, shared, or used in any manner in any way!!!

I think you're confused about what the term Open Source means. Android, in and of itself, is open source as a part of the Android Open Source Project. Meaning the code is free and available to be used and modified by smartphone manufacturers and custom rom builders. Samsung builds their proprietary OneUI on top of the open sourced Android. The term has nothing to do with your personal information.

Even if open source meant what you think it meant, you still bought the device and agreed to the hardware and software terms of service, so this post would have no real world impact anyways.
