XPrivacy

After weeks of research, development and testing I proudly present the ultimate, yet easy to use, privacy manager: XPrivacy.

XPrivacy can prevent applications from leaking privacy sensitive data. XPrivacy can restrict the categories of data an application can access. This is done by feeding an application with no or fake data. There are several data categories which can be restricted, for example contacts or location. For example, if you restrict access to contacts for an application, this will result in sending an empty contact list to the application. Similarly, restricting an application's access to your location will result in a set location being sent to the application.

Features
  • Simple to use
  • No need to patch anything (no source, no smali or anything else)
  • For any (stock) variant of Android version 4.0.3 - 4.4.4 (ICS, JellyBean, KitKat)
  • Newly installed applications are restricted by default
  • Displays data actually used by an application
  • Option to restrict on demand
  • Free and open source
  • Free from advertisements

The download link is in the installation instructions

You can also use the XPrivacy Installer as an aid to install XPrivacy.

This forum is for questions only. See here for bug reports and feature requests.

Please post messages related to privacy only.
XPrivacy is not intended to make other application do things they are not supposed to do.


There is only support for the latest official XPrivacy version.

XPrivacy was a lot of work, so please support this project

Donate a few dollars for the pro license

OR

Note that there is a difference between the pro license and the pro import/export enabler.

Use at your own risk !

Yes, the fixes should work on stock ROM too, but I didn't test it.

Im using this since version 0.3 and think it is really a great Mod!
Thank you very much for your hard work!

I'd really like to contribute, but since I'm pretty limited in terms of coding the only thing I can offer is to translate Xprivacy to German if you like.

I already got some experience in app translating (though it has been some time since then), so just PM me, if you want me to translate it

So If I'm on a sense based 4.2.2 rom I also need to install the CM 4.2 fix? (just installed the latest version of Xprivacy .11)
