[ROOT] X Privacy Installer

Posted by Marcel Bokhorst in Tools | Jan. 25, 2015 | 99 Comments

Apk file size: 118.0 KB

This application will help you to install XPrivacy, the ultimate, yet easy to use, privacy manager.

✦ ✦ ✦ Root required ✦ ✦ ✦

If you don't have the Xposed framework installed already, the installer will help you to install this framework, since it is required to run XPrivacy.

Android 5.x Lollipop devices: you will need to install Xposed for Lollipop manually
See here for installation instructions: https://github.com/M66B/XPrivacy#installation

For support, please go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/modules/xprivacy-ultimate-android-privacy-app-t2320783

XPrivacy can prevent applications from leaking privacy sensitive data by restricting the categories of data an application can access. XPrivacy feeds applications fake data or no data at all. It can restrict several data categories, such as contacts or location. For example, if you restrict an application's access to contacts, that application will receive an empty contacts list. Similarly, restricting an application's access to your location will send a fake location to that application.

XPrivacy doesn't revoke or block permissions from an application, so most applications will continue to work as before and won't force close (crash).

★★★★★ XPrivacy has no equal!!! ★★★★★★ Marcel is a man on a mission to help others stay safe on Android. This app is a prefect eleven! Do you know who's collecting your data whether you like it or not? With XPrivacy no one can, you're in complete control. Please keep in mind this is no easy task for any Dev. It takes a LOT of time and effort to make this kind of granular control function on any device, let alone so many devices. Not to mention the implementation of new to Android ART & SELinux that completely changed the way apps are aloud play.

Pete Glass

Excellent app for controlling permission This is a great app and I'd recommend purchasing it so you can use all the operations and can apply "fetched permissions" to your app list based on crowd sourcing (what other people have set). It saves a lot of time configuring permissions for your apps. I've only had a couple apps that needed the permissions customized after doing this (titanium backup pro and printer share needed permissions opened) but overall the crowd sourced permissions are great and save a lot of time and are well worth the money.

Not for lollipop Android 5 Xposed installer not available for this version of Android. Sorry dev. Missed it. Would be nice if google would allow comment without putting stars on. Maybe an NA box. Look forward to this working one day.

Micah Goldstein

Greatly improved--indispensable! EDIT: things have changed quite a bit since I last wrote. Dev continues to actively address issues. I now recommend this indispensable tool! This should be built into the Android OS! (previous review) Bills itself as a privacy app, then steals device ID data. That's a bug, not a feature. 5 stars, except for that. Violating your privacy kinda defeats the purpose, don'tcha think? It's like saying "I'll protect you from everyone but me." The entire "identity" category is greyed out for the xprivacy app. IMEI, advertising ID, and device serial are not necessary for software licensing, and saying otherwise is a poor excuse. Until this is fixed, it's hard to endorse.

Dmitry Zvorikin

Works also on MIUI You just have to disable the built in MIUI LBE feature which claims to do the same task, but does not. Very good, thank you. I think of purchasing the full version.

Mark G.

Impressive I really want to use this app, but after installing, and enabling in Xposed, it totally slowed my phone down. The phone also crashed (forced reboot & stuck in boot animation) a few times since installing it. *** HTC One - ViperOneM8_3.2.1 Rom

sbcontt

dead horse i know comments are not helpful, but intermittent protection is useless. Right now all the apps I use have all my data they need. By the time you implement proper privacy, it won't undo the past. We Google users have nothing to hide anymore. What remains is meaningless paranoia.

Gusai Ashadawi

Nexus4,4.4.2 Get it quickly. Doesn't work on 4.4.3 :( will stay on 4.4.2...I edited before that it was my error of not having stock kernel, don't know why it didn't show in the comment. 4.4.3 is even better than before, N5...seriously, thank you so much. Edit, I am on N5, Elemental x kernel, everything is good :) Edit. . Xprivacy is the only reason why I accepted lollipop, thank you so much.

Lawrence Bejo

Thanks for the publisher! Hey publisher when I download this app its very fast to download when it is 1bar its complete! But I know how to USe it! ((((((Instruction)))))))):The xprivacy can make the game or ur game to allow purchases)))))) that can xpivacy do! People but seems it needs root so my device is rooted

Alberto Humova

Android 5.0.1 not supported My last rating was too low because xposeed is really great , I hope that a working upgrade of xposed is possible for lollipop 5.0.1.

Matt Bernard

Great Number 1 Product in the World. Developer has already been donated to a year ago.

Sjoerd Krol

needed for the privacy minded it's very good for the privacy minded among us, but is a bit complicated from time to time, but when an application isn't working anymore you can always try with less restrictions ;) to bad it isn't supported on lollipop yet

Kartik Gupta

Doesn't work on Redmi and Nexus 7 The device gets into bootloop after forced installation on Redmi MIUI device.. Needed this app urgently for some stuff..but its useless.. :/ Also, doesn't work on Nexus devices since they are upgraded to android lollipop.. What the heck! Doesn't support mainstream major devices.. :o :/

Kelvin Andrews

Complicated but thorough functionality It has a steep learning curve, and you may find you have to reset an apps settings a few times before you settle on the ideal permissions. Nonetheless much needed mobile functionality and permission control at an app level.

Roman Rivas

Amazing I swear I was going to switch to ios because though their system is closed they have high privacy settings without much user input. Now this app has restored power back to the user despite android being controlled by Google. Thanks a lot!

Macak Cira

One App One app to rule them all, one app to find them, one app to bring them all and in respecting your privacy bind them.

Sen Sation

Must have.... Gives peace of mind when installing apps which ask for seemingly unnecessary permissions which users have no control over....until now! Excellent, many thanks to the dev(s)

Karthik Rajendiran

Waiting Waiting for the stable xprivacy version for lollipop. Sry if I say anything wrng...

robin rehan

Sweet thing. . Loving it.

jim kami dumas

not able to use I have the lollipop os and tried to open with no luck. Any help would be appreciated or I can uninstall it and get refund.

Markus Poell

Absolutely great app!! Thank you very much for this app!!! Really appreciate it!! I am still digging through all the features and it takes some time to customize all the settings to your liking but it already gives peace of mind, knowing that privacy is not a concern anymore!!! :)

Wyatt Best

So helpful I really appreciated how easy this made it to install XPrivacy!

Jeremy Crawford

awesome nothing better for this type work thank you

Bob Madara

Just got this... but after using it I'll be able to rate it

Andrei Constantinescu

Great work. Thank you! Great app, a lot of options available, very smart principle. Hope XPosed fixes what it should and you will be able to continue the work on Lollipop too.

Gary Nimmo

Best app Should be a standard feature in all phones

Chad Dennis

HUAWEI Y356A1 Can you make a root for the HUAWEI Y356A1 please!

William Tan

Lenovo S850 Although setup is abit tedious, but it works. This is a good alternative to appOps cuz I'm running on Android 4.4.2

Mika Varis

A must have Xprivacy is the number one must have app for anyone concerned about their privacy.

J Pat

Its true. It goes to 11. ;)

Leo Kudel

One of the best apps I've downloaded Must have app. Some applications have crazy permission request. This will give you some control back.

James Caffrey

Great It gets u what u really want

Fuzzel Fox

The app doesn't find google play services even with system apps shown.

I can't use it Why I can't use it?

Adrian Lucas

Don't know what I did without this X privacy is a superb piece of work. Top job fella keep up the good work. I can sleep safe knowing my data is safe from prying eyes... 10 out of 10

Birkopf Dodds

Advanced? Impressive? Both true, but it will make your life a hell. It is easier to power up a space shuttle...

Because he can help us

Joshua Jordan, KSC

Indispensable Worth donating for this app..

Alex Rabchevsky

Легендарно! Using this App for about an hour (mostly reading & learning). The first impression is a super-duper-awesome! It swaps me from a horse to the rider position in our tandem with Android). A tremendous development work is highly appreciated! Will go for a pro version a.s.a. get some usage experience with the freeware

Surround Galaxy

Cant install xposed Button "installl" not active... connect bt mouse and win :)

Рома Павленко

thanks, everything's working

Sanjay Agarwal

Marvellous & Beyond Imagination I use this app in my other phone, not on this. I have recently started using his app but now will be using it forever but I still can't believe that there can be an app like this exist. This man is from 31st century. Don't know how he landed here in 21st century. Please please please please pleeeeeeeeeeease keep this app active till your last breath as I know that I can never ever find any alternative to this. No one in this world is that intelligent who can make even 10 percent of this.

Pete Glass

Excellent app but slows phone down This is a great app and if you like it I'd recommend purchasing it so you can use all the operations and can apply "fetched permissions" to your app list based on crowd sourcing (what other people have set). It saves a lot of time configuring permissions for your apps. The only problem I have is that it slows my phone down.

KING LIFER

Seriously the best and I'll tell you why Imei spoofing. Some Block your data but this gives fake info so the apps your blocking still works. Major difference to the rest out there. Gosh when I went to lollipop I lost all my privacy with it. I hope you go solo and make your software non xposed dependant. MSG me. I will pay for this even if it's a one off.

Byron Villafania

loves it my phone become smooth and good...even though the other apk are not compatible...everything is good...I will observe if there will be glitches...good job

J Hill

The best reason to root! While there are many benefits to a rooted phone, this is the most important for me. Many apps I want to use require excessive permissions I don't want to allow; with X Privacy apps still work but I control what info they get/don't get access to. This alone is a great reason to root

Foats Oats

Confusion I'm fully confused how to finish the install. Do we have enter the forums to beg for help just to complete installation?

Macak Cira

One App One app to rule them all, one app to find them, one app to bring them all and to your will bind them. App developer, you are the superhero of 21st century.

احمد فهد

not activity Not work on HTC M7 5.0.2

Danny Ramirez

Perfect Controlled permissions. What more can you ask for?

Connor P

Their is no way to get files when it says can not read files that means the game has good security

Joe Moreno

Upgrades made easy. Works like a champ even made me feel like a technical wizard.

Chandan Das

C K Das Best app to control ur all app.

Swaraj Mohapatra

Precise Does exactly what it says. Nothing more nothing less. Great job. And definitely recommended. Xprivacy is really an app done good.

Dr.Depak Muniraj

Beyond imagination What a hell! Oh my god. Who can beat this.... a must have professional application for techies.... Hats off to developers..... now its working in lollypop too...

Kudzai Mhlanga

Not working It keeps on telling me that xprivacy is not enabled on my device or i need to reboot of which i have done both. Is there something im missing cuz i downloaded xposed installer and installed the framework and then xprivacy and rebooted and after that i enabled it in xposed and rebooted again and it still didnt work. My phone is a Huawei Ascend G610 U20. Please help

simon king

Magnificant. Does it really work on lollipop now? So a moto Nexus 6? Wont install if your phones rooted with one of those rooting apps but your bootloader remains locked so do yourself a favour and use with kitkat on a samsung or a nexus 5 where the company supplies software to make unlocking the bootloader simple or comes already unlocked (samsung galaxy's)... perfect app stop programs talking to eachother behind your back (deny IPC) FOR EXAMPLE. check out the extra tricks it can do in settings too. This app is totally on your side if u want protection. Its nasty to NSA ;)

Jake Wallace

Installed, used a bit, then inmediatly pulled a logcat, why does this app attempt to upload files from my /system partition? Pretty ironic for an app that restricts other apps....

Joey McAlexander

Can't figure it out. I downloaded the installer but can't get it to actually install the software. I can't open the program. I've been searching Google for 20 minutes and can't find out how to do it. Am I really the only one who has this problem?

Ellie G.

An impressive app that's not only free but also free of ads. I just started using this app even though I've always known how intrusive apps can be, even when they're from the Play Store. So far, I'm still tweaking my settings & while it's a bit complicated, the app does its best to make privacy management easy enough for your average person. Anyway, seeing all the unnecessary permissions is quite alarming, and this app helps put my mind at ease. However, I've noticed that boot-up is now a bit slow & my phone even powered off on its own several times.

Andrew Stevens

Excellent Idiot-proof way to install this excellent module - if only everything was this easy!! Thank you! Due to running LP, had to manually install the Xposed framework via recovery (Pro tip: Stock LP Samsung ROMs + Xposed = bootloops, you need CyanogenMod), but that has nothing to do with this app.

Kartik Gupta

Didn't work on redmi & nexus.. Changed my rating from 1-->4.. Not 5 because it was unavailable at a time I needed it the most..and apology for such a bad review earlier..but I have seen this app doing wonders..and I really needed it that time.. Although now I realize that it takes much of your effort..and it should be appreciated anyhow..so thanks a lot for such an amazing app..! (Y) I loved it.. The best privacy app ever.. !!

Ben Gaskin

It would help if the documentation was easier to use. I'll try installing it again when I have more time. The Google play description says manual lollipop installation information is at **github link** which doesn't have a "lollipop manual installation" text at first glance. There's a very large readme file, a quick search for lollipop and manual doesn't look useful either. Easy documentation is important, hence the 2 stars. Even if the manual installation is difficult that's fine, but it shouldn't be a wild goose chase.

Declan H.

A Must-Have for Root Users! I've been using this for about 48 hours now, it is truly the most useful Xposed module out there. Although I wouldn't recommend using this if you don't know what you're doing, as it is pretty advanced.

Lewis Louie

simply put .. number 1 privacy app, number 1 app to install on your phone before you start using any other app to have total control of your phone, you will be amazed of what goes on behind your back on your android that this gem of an app reveals and control.

Sahil SaM

Help After successfully installing x privacy in x privacy installweIt shows xposed framework is not installed or module is not active.but i have installed xposed framework and set it active...plz help me.

Steven Porteous

Great tool Fantastic support from the developer for a technical solution for those that care about privacy,shame about the 1star ratings,this stuff is not for kids,you need a brain to use

Civil Distribution

Incredible It would be a lie to say this is everything you could ever want from an Android app... its far more than that! Mucho respect, thanks :D

Dennis Kennedy

It's best to keep prying outside Don't expose, when snoopy eyes want to know everything about you. Just take a step back wards. Don't trust anyone or anything else that wants your own info. I always tried to layer my cellphone with as much of the best of what security had to offer. Now, all apps that want to know. I've closed (if not ) slammed the door shut on snoopy apps, once and for all.

Dark Chaostic

Very sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? This app sucks!!!!!!!!!! Cuz when my pixel gun 3d download finish and I open it then it always letting me to allow or deny the app!!!!!! So my pixel gun is not working again and again!!!:'( I just uninstall it and download again!:'(?.......Its a spam!!!!!!!! Don't download this app its just a spam!!!!!! Trust me everyone!!!!! It waste my time to download pixel gun and waste my internet!!!!!!! Plz this is a spam app it let u allow or deny the app that u downloaded plz trust me people!!??

Nick N

Holy Cow Kudos Marcel ! There must be a special place in heaven for Marcel, all the Xposed contributors, XDAs, CM, everyone....wow. Thanks ! :P

Arc Futahito

Amazing as xposed module No idea why would you choose to install it separately since you've still got all the risks of modifying rom

Helge Brigado

Marcel! Your are the freaking bomb. To deface this instead of blocking is genius, and you are too. A app "jodel" is though able to get my location through - isProviderEnabled. I believe.. is this something new in lollipop+ api? (Ofc I got the licenses when they were in .txt's)

Will Madden

Completely lost I have a Sumsung galaxy S3 I downloaded this app cause it seemed to be the best and the only one that would let me take my location off apps but it would not let me do anything couldn't get passed first screen said my device was rooted no clue what that means by the way so I created an account on the help forun even more lost now it says choose your device at the top of the page yeah where saw nothing even close to something saying anything about a device

Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani

Error message When I am installing 'xposed' and going to framework, it's giving a message "xposed is not yet compatible with Android sdk version 21 or your processor architecture (arm64-8a)".

Time Machine

the best app for privacy this is by far the best app for privacy on any platform, no other platform has real alternative or equal app for privacy then xprivacy. those who don't understand how to use it, please go to xda forums xprivacy thread to ask questions rather than rating it low for your own lack of knowledge.

nathan brisendine

Still unable to work on the S6 Come on I want to gain my privacy back. Actually I want the last version of Android. Your comment is dumb. I'v been waiting for 8 months and your program flat out says you have not programed it to work on my device. So it will stay at a one star.

Ajay Mali

Not Working I'm using Micromax A106 Lollipop 5.0 and Its displaying a msg that is not complicate with android SDK...

timk FX

Currently nothing rivals this security app, but beyond that an ingenious licensing system. I hope other devs will not be lazy and follow Marcels footsteps.

N8 Smith

***This is a must have for android*** Having the ability to decide what I want to share with apps is priceless. Xprivacy should b stock in android. I'd like to thank Marcel for his countless hours of work on this and also for providing great support. I hope to see this continued on android m once xposed is in working order. Thanks again to the dev!!!!

Ellie G.

An impressive app that's not only free but also free of ads. I just started using this app even though I've always known how intrusive apps can be, even when they're from the Play Store.

Branden Mardis

Says it's "easy", I say it's not at all easy. The "XPosed" & "XPrivacy" "Installers" apparently have to be installed so this ensemble can work as some sort of stealthy package. However, I found that neither want to "talk" to one another & the culprit being the "framework". Why does this app need another app to work? How can this be deemed "easy"? I'm hoping these two "apps" don't wreck my new phone that I bought yesterday & rooted today! Maybe if you like spending an hour making a complicated situation easy, then you'll love XPosed-XPrivacy.

suresh venkata

Not working Xprivacy is not active why pls say me then I will give 5 stares

Carbon Copy

Can't phone without this! Had to do a major overhaul to be able to use this again on Marshmallow but I gotta have it! Thanks for your great work and major thanks to rovo89 the developer of the xposed framework without it the sky would still be dark!

Joe H.

Doesn't work for my S7. Unless it is being shot down by the spies who hate the fact that we are free citizens. They are controlling everything and they have to track evrything we do, even if you are a good guy... I like this app and would rate a 5 when it worked on my s4.

Jeffrey Jones

Broke back mount application! Sucks!5 stars for poorly design! Fix your endpoint and your darn certs!

kpo chan

Update ?? When relase update work in v10.all about framework not installed. Why i can’t download it through google play store, so many tHread and van make a easy way like before 4.0

Kirk Kanenbley

Not easy to use After using it fine for weeks, Last 2 days it has caused nothing but problems and restricted itself. Don't have time to mess with this. Uninstalled.

Craig Cunningham

Excellent An essential app right along side AFWall, Avast, AdAway. Xprivacy should be a built-in part of Android.

Patrick Franks

Patxposed App i have been waiting for. However confused whether or not i can install xposed for rooted stock samsung lollipop 5.0.1 on touchwiz. Have read both it works and it causes bootloops on samsung stock rooted. Any advice help would be greatly appreciated. Have spent hours reading researching but not 99% sure if i can install xposed successfully.

wood land Nut

The best, but needs more expert options Sure it can be dangerous. It can soft brick your device. But you can't hobble the app because it's needs experience. Also needs all permissions block able/spoofable to be truly effective

Karen Bee

Worth the trouble Had to really jump around to get it and Xposed properly installed with ARHD's Lollipop, but once done, everything was a breeze. Good instructions and help links. Thanks to the Flashify and Installer apps here for their help.

Mukund Madhav

Acceptable The app works hassle free. The thing that really sucks here is the fact there is absence of material design. The privacy setup could be bolded better. If button for checking would have been circular rather than square, it would have added beauty.

Beth Corver

Amazing app. Only one of its type. The installer for xprivacy. Both this installer and the xprivacy app are extremely difficult to configure and use but very worth it. If you can root your phone, you can do this!

Could not get it to work! Asus zenphone2 already rooted but app says its not rooted???The phone is rooted .Root checker pro says so. Also have super user installed and busy box.+ lucky patcher.

TBCM EIB

The fact that This awesome app is in google make me doubt about "Privacy", tho i download the xprivacy app from xposed installer module directly and is not recognice by goolge market.. Weird.. Rather stay with the xprivacy app from xposed site.

Dmitry

Nonsense. Instead of this useless app I would recommend apk permission remover. Works well and doesn't require to install dodgy and buggy Xposed Framework in order to work. P. S. Sorry to hear that but this what happens. Your app doesnt work on Android 4.0.3 galaxy S2. Consider to spend more hours on it.

Dark Chaostic

Very sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? This app sucks!!!!!!!!!! Cuz when my pixel gun 3d download finish and I open it then it always letting me to allow or deny the app!!!!!! So my pixel gun is not working again and again!!!:'( I just uninstall it and download again!:'(?.......Its a spam!!!!!!!! Don't download this app its just a spam!!!!!! Trust me everyone!!!!! It waste my time to download pixel gun and waste my internet!!!!!!! Plz this is a spam app it let u allow or deny the app that u downloaded plz trust me people!!??
