Permission Manager X

eXtended Permission Manager - a small app to manage permissions and AppOps
New in version v1.10
Improved help and Exclusion Filters
Permission Manager X is a small app to manage permissions and AppOps for the apps installed on your device. It evolved from a shell script to a GUI for my personal needs. After a ROM upgrade or changing device, it's a time-taking process to review all installed apps for granted permissions and revoke the unnecessary ones (after all privacy matters). To come up with a solution, you can set reference states of permissions which can be quickly backed up and restored. Colored bars at left indicate reference states and make it quite easy to review packages and permissions at a glance.

Manifest permissions are normally simply called "permissions" (e.g. Storage, Camera). AppOps (app operations) is a robust framework Android uses as back-end for access control. With every Android release manifest permissions are becoming more dependent on AppOps. So it's fun to control both simultaneously and see how they relate to each other.

In short, AppOps provide a fine-grained control over many of the manifest permissions. Plus it provides additional controls like background execution, vibration, clipboard access etc. Explore the app to see more.

Features:

Using eXtended Permission Manager, for each installed app, on single screen, you can:

* View, grant or revoke manifest permissions
* View AppOps permissions and choose one of multiple modes
* Set your desired reference value for every changeable permission

Required Privileges / Permissions:

* In order to let Permission Manager X serve you at its best, either the device must be rooted or you need to enable ADB over network.
* android.permission.INTERNET is required to use ADB over network. No connections are made outside the device.
