"Permissions tweaker"

Reviewed by / Nov 29, 2013

App Ops is a system settings app which allows you to revoke permissions one-by-one

From Android 4.3 on, there's a built-in feature called App Ops, which is a permissions manager that lets you revoke them one by one, while keeping the app installed. Obviously some of those permissions are needed for the app to run properly. Some of them aren't. If you can identify those questionable permissions, you can now disable/enable them from App Ops.

App Ops is a hidden system app which means that it requires following some steps to "unlock" it. App Ops 4.3 / 4.4 KitKat by Lars Team does it for you. You just need to download the app and let it do everything automatically.

Just swipe to navigate through categories (location, personal, messaging, device), select any app you want to enable/disable permissions and tap on it. There you'll see all permissions listed and toggles to switch them on/off. That easy.

    Works with Android Lollipop (version 5.0.1) on rooted Nexus 4. Nowhere near the amount and depth of the configuration settings of Xprivacy, but the Xposed Framework is not compatible with Lollipop, so this is better than nothing for the time being.

    This is a must have app yo gain control over apps permission. Some apps have extra permissions.

    Tried denying location access to multiple apps, but no luck. Other permissions seem to work. Nexus 7 with lollipop.

    Installs and works but it is stuck on loading apps. If I proceed to swipe to the messaging section the app instantly crashes. However if I swipe quickly to the autostart section it detects all the apps related to startup. Meaning this app delivers what it promises, its just unfortunately not working on my phone for now. I'm running T-Mobile S4 using AntaresOne Lollipop ROM CM12 Unofficial. Hope au
