XPrivacyLua Pro companion app

This thread is to discuss about the pro companion app of XPrivacyLua.

You can install the pro companion app for free and manage hook definitions and access the hook definition repository for free. You can see how the other features work, but using them requires a purchase:

  • backup and restore all settings
  • manage individual hooks per app
  • set/randomize custom identifiers globally/per app
  • allow (non) starred contacts globally/per app
  • set custom fake or coarse location globally/per app
  • view a global log of which restriction were applied and when
  • notify on applying an app restriction
  • dark theme

Although the pro companion app is stable, it will be forever published in the Play store as "testing" because I don't want to deal with unfair ratings/comments. Just too many people have unreasonable expectations.

If you value your privacy, please consider to support this project by purchasing pro features or with a donation.

If you want to install the pro companion app and activate the pro features without Google services, please contact me through this contact form: https://contact.faircode.eu (select "XPrivacyLua standalone").

The pro companion app is supported with Xposed only.

Is there a reboot required after updating the Pro App, or are there dependencies to the XLua version installed?
I just updated the Pro App (not exactly sure from which version, but think from Monday). I then just wanted to doublechek if for Whatsapp the contact restriction is still set to "Allow starred" but there was no dropdown available when being in the Whatsapp Pro App contact section (was just an empty place). Nevertheless in ProApp global settings, the dropdown was available in contact section. I then updated XLua (from 1.11.3) to 1.11.4, rebooted and everything was fine again (so dropdown available for Whatsapp and also "Allow starred" was set.

Updating the pro companion app doesn't require a reboot.

The issue might be caused by updating.

Since it is fixed now I will leave it as it is, but don't hesitate to comment here if it occurs again and I will look into it.

Sorry if I missed something Marcel,
What is this flashing ROM limit?
Some people using the pro companion app without Google services installed are frequently flashing a new ROM, which resulted into the pro activation being deactivated. This was being solved by requesting a new activation until now, but this was both inconvenient for them and for me. This has been solved in version 0.24.

Hello, and thank you for enhancing your work to allow for stable compatibility with 6.0+.

I purchased XPrivacy several years ago, and enabling pro entailed keeping my xprivacy_license.txt on my sdcard.

Will my existing license file enable pro for xprivacylua? Or is the pro xprivacylua a separate purchase for a separate product?

Thank you again for helping ensure our privacy.

It is a separate purchase for a separate product.

Hello Marcel,

Sorry to ask again but it's ok to update to 0.28 via Play? Or keep 0.26 as on your website? I don't know if installing the Play version over the website version will ruin things, that's why i ask, sorry.
Version 0.28 is now available off Play store too, mostly to prevent confusion.
Just restart the app to force an update check.

The changes are relevant for Play store users only though.

    Christ dude $15 for pro features???!!

    And you even got the admins to delete the fork that enables the pro features for free. **** move.
    XPrivacyLua is completely free to use, so you can protect your privacy for free. Given the time I have put into it, this is a big gift. The pro companion app offers convenience and advanced features and is not free to use.

    You clearly experience the price too high, but in fact it is much too low because it will never ever pay for the hours I have put into this project.

    Most apps are free, but in fact you are paying in some other, likely privacy invading way. Most paid apps are cheap and they can be due to the high number of users. XPrivacyLua has maybe 3000 users and just a few percent actually support the project. I have put about 450 hour into this project. Go figure.

    So, if you value your privacy, please support this project instead of trying to use the pro companion app for free.

    Edit: there has never been a fork or whatever, so you have been using either cracking tools or a cracked version of the pro companion app. Crackers do not work for free because that is simply not how the world works most of the time. Mostly they earn their money by inserting malicious code. So, you are not only using illegal stuff, but also taking a big risk. Don't be surprised if something was stolen from you.

    You were very vocally against the pro features despite the community feedback and only enabled it as a means to kill the community fork. So yes you released it but locked it behind a prohibitively expensive price as a way of getting back at people. For $15 it might as well not exist. But tbh I think it's more of an ego issue than a money issue. And it's obviously apparent from how you took an amazing app and neutered it because you want to police how others want to use their devices. Yes this is your personal project and you can do whatever the hell you want with it but it just seems so counter productive.
    Which community fork are you talking about?

    Edit: all source code is here: https://github.com/M66B/XPrivacyLua, but it doesn't contain the pro companion app because I don't want it to be used free.

    And yes, I was against pro features and still I built them and put a price on them, which go together. So, be happy that there are pro features available and not only XPrivacyLua. It is not 'a way of getting back at people', that lives only in your mind.

    I provided XPrivacyLua for free and open sourced it. How is that an ego issue?

    I am not policing how you use your device. That is absolute nonsense.

    You obviously want to use the pro companion app for free. Can you please explain me why?

    Basically you come here to complain that your cracked version doesn't work anymore. You should be banned for that.

    I think it is pretty disrespectful to steal somebody else's work.

    A ton of apps do this. XPL is literally useless if you can't or don't want to pay $15. Your privacy ends when your inability to pay begins.

    And to those preaching this as the holy grail as privacy: don't even pretend, you know some apps outright crashes when restrictions are applied.

    I'm usually okay with these semi functional freemium apps since they cost a few bucks at most to unlock but $15 is too greedy out of principle alone, especially if he's making this for the, lol, "betterment of humanity". You'd think with a mission that great the not-so-optional features would be more accessible.

    Watch him interpret this as wanting things for free because in his mind less money apparently equals no money. Probably sprinkled with some threats of leaving because he thinks he's rovo89 or something.
    If $15 is worth the pro features and to support the XPrivacyLua project is up to you, but it is clear to me that you don't want to pay anything or almost nothing. That is fine, but then you should not have access to the pro features.

    XPrivacyLua generally doesn't let apps crash, although this can't be prevented completely. See also the FAQ.

    Nobody preaches that XPrivacyLua is the holy grail of privacy, but it is the most complete privacy tool for Android there is.

    Anyway, go find another completely free privacy tool that is maintained and supported and just go away here.
