how to prevent an app from being removed from an android phone by an external source

TheTelegram app is about to be removed from our android and Apple phones by an external source, as was done to the Parler app.

How do I prevent this? Where is the setting that denies permissions for apps to be remotely accessed?

Apps cannot be removed from your phone externally.  They can be removed from the store so that they cannot be updated or reloaded.

An apps' back end services can also be shut down (e.g. AWS told Parler to get their back end services off of their platform).  So, even if you keep the app, that doesn't mean it will continue to work.
