Permissions Denied allows you to manager permissions of your Android apps
This is the donate version of Permissions Denied with no added features (just supporting the developer). 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.

Permissions are reset on every update, and it needs a reboot after every change. Rediculous. Author, when you respond to my emails, you might earn a star. Fixing these issues will earn you another.
I have problem like doesn't seem to work on my phone after reboot; ATT Note 2.
I often have to repeat the same action many times before it works, fiddling with lock/unlock and reboot over and over. Reboot menu option does nothing. It's sad that this poor show is better than other apps are able to manage.
Hard to use, and request restarting system
App does what it says and does it fine. A few bugs like number of blocked permission not displaying from the top menu however once you click on a particular app you can see whats blocked and whats not. More descriptions needed for some permissions, howeve
For every stupid 1 star review I read. Works as intended.
I've used a few of these apps and I'm satisfied with this one. I particularly like that you can block a permission universally across the whole device all at once. Thx for this :)
