Permissions Denied allows you to manager permissions of your Android apps
First off, this app requires root access. It won't work if your devices isn't rooted.
Permissions Denied makes a list of your installed apps (as well as system apps) in your device. From that list you can see at a glance, under the app name, the amount of active and disable permissions. What's more, if you tap on the app, you it will show in detail each permission and a brief description. From there, with just a tap, you can enable/disable the permission. The changes will be applied after reboot.
Bear in mind that most of the apps need those permissions to work properly and if you reject them it will make it not work. However, there are some apps that ask for permissions that shouldn't be required for its correct performance: for example, access to send/read SMS for a Tetris Game. The purpose of this app is controlling this kind of permissions.
What's different in this app is that you can restore all permissions, disable one permission for all the apps at the same time: for example, access to read/compose SMS, and backup permissions profile. You can do all of this from Advanced Options.
It should be said that, although the app is quite simple and easy of use, the layout is too sober (it reminds developer dashboards).
Permissions Denied has been developed by Stephen (Stericson), a well-known developer focused on apps for rooted devices.
This is the free version of Permissions Denied. (BTW I didn't remove any existing functionality from the free version, I've improved on the app, added some to the free version and put the rest of the changes in the pro version)
This application does not work on all devices, you will need to just try it out and see if it works for your device. Try this before you buy the pro version!
The Pro version of Permission Denied has a widget, detects more applications, allows you to see all applications with a specific permission, a ui upgrade, of sorts, and handles rejecting permissions better than the free version.
This app Requires Root Access!
Permissions allows you to effectively control the permissions that apps which are installed onto your phone, via the market or some other source.
You must reboot before these changes take place and be aware that denying an app a permission that it is requesting may result in the app Force Closing.
Please us the backup feature with care! Always make backups of your device.
Added support for Jelly bean

EASY, SIMPLE, allowed me to KILL permissions for camera, SMS, contacts, NFC, start up at boot + block ads. DISABLE ONLY 1 PERMISSION ON 1 APP AT A TIME, then turn phone off~on to reboot/test if app works. if not, just re-enable the 1 permission, then tu
Not sure if it works, how can I check whether permissions were changed?
Love it Lifesaver
Worthless. Google maps has permissions I wouldn't let my most trusted people in my life have. This app is selling an upgrade. Uninstall.
This app is Sofa King excellent! Does exactly what it says. Don't like a permission an app requires? Deny it. Perfect. If you get too aggressive and break an app, you shouldn't have a rooted phone.
This did not work
Does exactly what it says. A must have for (experience) root users.
