"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.

    Requires unnecessary permissions. If this app simply opened up app ops it wouldn't require any permissions but it requires call history and other things to be available. Also its size is huge compared to other app ops launchers. Be wary.

    Rooted Samsung galaxy s3 running 4.32 gives a message my device isn't supported. What kind of garbage is this that a very popular model that is rooted isn't supported

    Nice to have working on 4.2.2 and I no this is just googles built in "apk" but would like to c some development done to it to make it better, like adding all permission options to apps instead of just a few , the few we can use are not really useful. Also is it possible to get apps listed in alphabetical order ? Pretty annoying the way it is now
