This is a guide that hopes to give the basic info most people want to know about the security of their phones, and when to download, and when not to download applications.

It's my hope that this will help people make more informed decisions and be safe about their application usage, privacy, and data. It is my firm belief that Android is a fundamentally safe platform and that with some common sense, diligence and the right knowledge, users can rest assured and enjoy their devices more thoroughly.

Crashes under Chameleon OS When I run the app and try an d look at permissions info my phone asks me how I want to complete the action. The only option that works is "application hardware" however the page keeps reloading and you can't really read the info

RESTING IN PIECES... This app used to be fantastic. Now it won't even launch on this g3. No love from the developer in over two years. I suspect it's been orphaned, and that's a shame. It used to be so useful.

NEEDS SOME LOVE! This is a good little app that unfortunately feels unfinished. There seems like there is plenty of room to expand it into a really great app. Also, it would be great if this could be updated to bring it in line with KitKat. No love since Oct 2012!!

Exactly what I needed. Thank you for making this app. It has helped me so much in making decisions with purchasing apps. I noticed this app needs no permissions. :)

Handy resource Can you please add detail for "Read Google Service Configuration" that is a complete unknown for me and it seems very intrusive.

Brilliant idea, needs just a little improvement GGN, Android 4.0.4 ICS It does not require any permissions itself, which is great. It should have been included as a core component of Android. Re. its weaknesses: it lacks a number of permissions and explanations. Some guide info is slightly wrong. I really hope the author will maintain it. Improvement suggestions: 0. Fill in the missing permissions and explanations; 1. A search or a group by function for apps by same author; 2. search the installed app names, too; 3 cascaded filters or regex for search

Easy way to find suspicous apps The best feature is to get a list of every app requesting a certain permision. That is a fast way to find apps requesting something they shouldnt need..

A wonderful app. I just wish I knew about this book before I had bought the apps I did for I would have known not to.

A Google User

A very informative booklet. I definitely recommend it to anyone new to Android.

Excellent app Great app just got better. Thanks developer keep up the great work. :-)

Extremely helpful app! This developer has put a lot of time helping the Android community deal with safety issues, and has made much of the material explaining permissions available elsewhere. What this app adds is the ability to check on your phone for all apps that use any permission you specify, a very valuable tool! Well worth the 99 cents!

Terrific app!! Should come with all new phones... This is a great resource both for understanding the permission system on android in general, and the activity of different installed apps in particular. It's one of the first things I loaded to my phone after reading the developer's advice on the android forums, and now I use it all the time when installing new apps. The ability to see all apps granted a particular permission at the same time is priceless- you might be surprised with what came pre-baked on your device!

A Google User

Bloody USEFUL! There's a section that lets you view *by type of permission* what apps have access to your system: "Permissons (What they mean; which apps use them)"

A Google User

A Needed App Great app and i recomend to new Android users to help them understand

A Google User

Best information I have read about permissions.

A Google User

Very useful information Makes me more cautious about what I download

A Google User

Essential for Rooters, not just noobs You rooted, but phone's still a slow batt hog? Find out who's running at boot. And just b/c you know permissions doesn't mean you shouldn't chk again!

A Google User

Very useful information handy to always have on your mobile to refer to when needed

A Google User

Dynamite tool for determining which installed apps have what permission(s). Gold mine of explanatory information.

NEEDS SOME LOVE! This is a good little app that unfortunately feels unfinished. It would be great if this could be updated to bring it in line with KitKat, Jelly Bean, Lollipop and now...Marshmallow!. No love since Oct 2012!!
