"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.

    I messed up all the permissions and now want to reset it. I tried uninstalling the app but it didnt work either.

    No way to find and app by name, one has to search through several lists. Even worse, some applications don't even show up so I can't fix their sketchy permission requirements.

    Used to work on older ROMs, though.
