Permission delegatio

I am new with Android and I just started to read about security in
I have a question.

For example, there is an application A requesting to access the
internet. There's a component B in A actually use the internet and B
is declared as public. At the installation time, application A will
ask the permission to access the internet. In this example, I assume
it is granted.
Since B is public, all other applications may use it. Or we can
generally say all other application can use the internet access.

Is it correct? I hope not.

Looking forward to any reply.
