Google has removed the hidden feature App Ops from Android in its Android 4.4.2 KitKat update, claiming that the feature wasn't supposed to be available to the public in the first place. Google removed the feature because it was "experimental" and could break app functionality, reported the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

"The fact that [Android users] can not turn off app permissions is a Stygian hole in the Android security model, and a billion people's data is being sucked through," wrote the EFF's Peter Eckersley. "Embarrassingly, it is also one that Apple managed to fix in iOS years ago."

*EDIT: We love u SAMSUNG!!!!!!
