Facebook by default, uses WAY too many permissions for my liking. So i removed them. I first started this with my "Location" feature removal and then saw that there were way too many other ones that i felt were unnecessary. For instance, Write contacts, sorry, I want facebook for exactly that, Facebook. Not for managing my contacts or what not.


Yes some people like to have Facebook contacts synced with their phone contacts, if you like all the invasive "social crap" Facebook has, then do us all a favor and just leave now. This thread/app is NOT for you.

I can remove more of the permissions, but i feel the permissions that i left in the app are the minimum required for a great user experience.

Hope you guys like this! Feel free to hit thanks and donate! Keeps me motivated!!!

Cool. Thanks for that. If I enter the settings the app crashes. Furthermore there are still a process and two Facebook services running in the background even if I end the app in the task manager

Unnecessary. Just use permission manager and deny all permissions you do not like. Better than apk editing and safer.

Oops, guess i should have tested settings :P sorry. And yes there are going to be background services. I didn't change anything in respects to that. If you want to completely kill it then use my app killer app and get root permissions

I can not use a permission manager since I have no root permissions. Therefore it's good to be able to have your mod
