Wow, this is huge, such a fine grain control? Wow
Thanks

It will allow you to disable individual hooks which are causing trouble for an app without disabling all hooks of a restrictions (which is in fact a group of hooks).

I will even add the group name and the last time the hook was used in the next release, but this was enough for today and already quite useful as it is.

These kind of Play store comments are the reason why the pro companion app will be a beta version forever:

Ich weiß nicht wie es den anderes geht, aber ich hab mir durch diese s***** Teilnahme, so dermaßen die mächtige Malware eingefangen! Ich werde soweit es mir möglich ist definitiv Meldung bei Google erstatten! Das geht zu weit...! Ich hoffe das sich deine Aktion rechnet. Interessieren Gangsta sind halt immer noch die wahren! Weiteres spare ich mir!
(I do not know how it works the other way, but I got through this s ***** participation, so captured the mighty malware! As far as I can, I will definitely report to Google! This goes too far...! I hope that your action pays off. Interesting Gangsta are still the true ones! I save more!)

Totally unusable, uninstalling

Why is the real app not out on play store yet. Do you think that's fair taking money from people And not giving them the app to use or functions. Because they use **beep** they should get robbed right. Just put a warning on you're app on play store and I'm done. But you won't because they all have it you won't sell anything.

Hi, how to be refund, I have buy pro for change IMEI, I'd ect and he dosent work. Thanks

貌似无法对某些app进行欺骗,只要勾选了,感觉就跟其他其它权限管理软件一样,就是直白的拒绝,没有给一个假数值当作欺
(Seemingly unable to deceive certain app, as long as check, just like other rights management software, it is straightforward to refuse, did not give a fake value as a fraud)

14€ ... Nein danke!
(14 € ... no thanks!)

Can i have promo code?

Some people ...

Yeah, well. Remember saying that there is at least some basic intelligence to be expected from users? The description of the app literally says XPL is required, yet some people still don't get it. Sometimes I wonder how such people are able to even survive when they pay that little attention

The pro companion app even checks if XPrivacyLua is installed and displays a message / link to the instructions if this is not the case.
Some people just don't read and/or have unreasonable expectations.
I guess those same people are not aware about privacy issues.

You know what is really disturbing about 'some people' ?

They don't ask and will therefore learn nothing.
They are not giving another a chance to answer as well.

I guess their IQ have a low, fake value, lol.

But then we also gotta be fair and ask questions ourselves, in this case especially "Why is this person behaving that way?" I think only in very rare cases it's blunt stupidit. Some are just (consciously or sub-consciously) searching for something to hate. My guess is that they're actually compensating for something completely different that's bothering them.
Or someone might be overwhelmed by the complexity of everything around them and, as a defensive measure label everything as "good" or "bad", so once they've got an opinion on something (often without investigating thoroughly) they stick to it and everything associated with that is [insert insulting word here].
Or someone has already made a few bad experiences with scams and is now scared and extremely quick with labeling something as a scam.

HI Marcel! Thanks for the pro app! As usual great work and more we've hoped for. Just purchased the compete pro features package.

However, I am not sure about two issues/questions:

  1. I was of the impression, the purchased contacts pro feature would allow me to block specific contacts (e.g. for whatsapp). Still, the future remains "greyed out" and only shows "block all" in the drop-down. What can I do?
  2. As I've purchased the complete package (13,99) - will potential future features that are pro, be included?

Thanks for clarification!

cheers

  1. You should be able to select 'allow starred' and 'allow not starred' for contacts too
  2. Yes

Thanks for your quick reply! Could you please give me a hint, how the starring of contacts works or where I can select the option (companion app or xlua)?
Select either 'allow starred' or 'allow not starred' and star the contacts you want to allow/not to allow in the Android contacts app. Where the star is in the Android contacts app depends on the Android version/variant, but often it is at top right side.

Could I suggest a feature - a randomize on access or randomize value buttons for the pro companion app, something like what xprivacy has.

Thanks

    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.

    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.
