All of a sudden I'm getting these notifications when Google is restricted. As far as I can tell Google is the only restricted app sending these. I do not have the "notify on restricting" box checked. I checked it on and off to see if that's what was the issue. It still behaves the same. This started yesterday. Is there a setting somewhere to stop these notifications? There is a message that the notifications can't be modified and indeed I can not toggle any of them on or off. I'm on a p7p running a13 and the latest December update. I installed that Saturday.

Can this module be used to send fake pedometer step count to an app ?
As I can see that its able to block the permission for that ...
Thanks
From what i understad is, xlua does not block the sensor itself. Rather xlua blocks apps or certain app from reading sensor's real data.

If you find your step counting app is reading fake data, you can freely exlude it from xlua.

Oh nooo - I just had to buy a new phone and was trying to figure out how to use XPL - which I have used since times it was called Xprivacy. But I haven't been able to figure out how to use it on Android 13 with Magisk as I haven't been able to figure our what happened to Xposed.

I thank you very much for the awesome work over the years!!!

What can one do without the time for scripting or programming to restrict apps from contacs/location/addresses/serials on Android 13?

So I installed XPL on Zygisk Android 13. I understood it's producing many requests, but it seems to not work/restrict apps. So, does it technically not work on Android 13 with LSPosed or could I still get it to work?

XPL does work on A13. Probably you're not using LSposed correctly. In LSposed, you have to bring each and every app into the scope of the module. This problem has been addressed over and over again in this thread and is only caused by LSposed itself. These constant questions about the LSposed problem has even been a major reason for the developer to stop supporting XPL.

I am considering to terminate support on January 5th 2023 because:
  • Not many people use the module anymore
  • The support of the project is pretty limited
  • Android has become more privacy-friendly over time
  • The LSposed developers do not support the module (*)
  • The module is too often misused, for example to cheat in games, etc.
  • I have received enough hate mail
(*) They refuse to add an API to access scopes, resulting a too many questions and also loosing users.

This means that XPrivacyLua has been supported for exactly 5 years. XPrivacy was first released on June 12, 2013, so that's in total about 10 years of XPrivacy(Lua). I think that is a pretty long time.
Just want to throw in my thanks for all the years of Xlua you made. Im only a rookie but you allowed me to feel safe in this increasingly surveillanced world we live in. To thee who is moving on, we salute you.

@Oswald Boelcke since this project isn't supported anymore and I am going to leave XDA, can you please close this thread? If somebody wants to continue discussing in a new thread, that's fine and you can add a link here if somebody requests that.

Please share your source code to the community so someone can maintain it, appreciate it and good luck.

https://github.com/M66B/XPrivacyLua/

Edit: the pro companion app won't be open-sourced. If somebody wants to continue the project, (s)he can prove being a worthy developer by developing a new pro companion app, which can be done in at most a few days. As already offered, another developer can ask for the source code after a significant contribution to the source code as well.

    XPrivacyLua

    banner_play_store.png


    Really simple to use privacy manager for Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later (successor of XPrivacy).

    Revoking Android permissions from apps often let apps crash or malfunction. XPrivacyLua solves this by feeding apps fake data instead of real data.

    Features:

    • Simple to use
    • Manage any user or system app
    • Extensible
    • Multi-user support
    • Free and open source

    See here for all details, including installation instructions and download link.

    Please read the frequently asked questions before asking a question.

    This XDA thread is about using the latest version of XPrivacyLua. Off topic comments are allowed as long they are related to XPrivacyLua and are in the general interest of the followers of this thread, but anything not related to privacy is not allowed.

    If XPrivacyLua doesn't work and/or when "module not running or updated" is shown, this is almost always caused by an Xposed problem.

    Discussions about purchases are not allowed here, please contact me via here instead.

    XPrivacyLua is being maintained and community supported, but new features won't be added anymore.

    Custom hook definitions will always be part of XPrivacyLua, but there will be community support only. This means that I won't respond to questions about defining custom hooks anymore. See this thread for the reasons.

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


    XPrivacyLua is not a permission manager, but a privacy manager. XPrivacyLua doesn't block things and doesn't revoke permissions, but does replace real data by fake data. This means you can grant Android permissions to an app and still let XPrivacyLua prevent the app from seeing privacy sensitive data. Revoking permissions can result in an app refusing to work and/or to crash. However, replacing real by fake data generally doesn't let an app crash.

    Currently restrictions are quite crude because they mostly replace real data by no data. For example restricting the contacts app from getting contacts will result in an empty contact list. In the near future it might be made possible to select the data an app may see, for example just one group of contacts.

    About feature requests and bug reports:

    The goal is to have a tool that can properly protect the privacy of many in the near future. However, it isn't paid work, so I do whatever I like whenever I like it.

    You can request features in this XDA forum. I will read them, but I will not respond to them and they might or might not be implemented. If I know for sure something will not be implemented, I will let you know.

    You can report any problem you have here. There will be no issue tracker on GitHub.

    For now I have decided to not implement restrictions that are useful to prevent tracking only. There are simply too many data items that can be used for tracking and it would take too much time to develop restrictions for all these data items.

    The basic idea is to restrict only things that 'define' you, so which contacts you have, where you are, which apps you use, etc.

    Maybe we can widen the definition of things that the core of XPL covers to "What defines you, and what can be used to spie on you"? This would include camera/audio, but not tracking.

    XPrivacyLua is pretty feature complete and will be maintained and supported and when there is a need new hook definitions will be added to better protect your privacy. For the rest this FAQ applies:

    https://github.com/M66B/XPrivacyLua/blob/master/FAQ.md#FAQ4

    As said before, development will also depend on Xposed development, which is just minimal unfortunately.

    XDA thanks and donations are appreciated.

    XPrivacyLua is supported with Xposed only. There is no support for VirtualXposed and TaiChi.

    I have just released beta version 0.5 in the Xposed repository.

    The XPrivacyLua framework and user interface seems to be stable enough to call this a beta release.

    Besides several bug fixes and improvements two new restrictions were added:
    • Read account name, which mostly holds your e-mail address and will be replace by '[email protected]' when restricted
    • Read clipboard, which will be replaced by the text 'Private' when restricted

    Furthermore the ability to restrict Android system (be careful!) and to restrict system apps was added. It is possible to restrict all of these individually (XPrivacy could not do that).

    Be sure to take a look at the help page in the app again (use the ?-icon), since there were some useful hints added.

    If you appreciate what I am building here, please let me know by means of an XDA thanks and/or a donation, so that I don't get the feeling 'What am I doing this for?'.

    I have just released alpha version 0.12 in the Xposed repository.

    This version has been redesigned for Android Oreo compatibility. The user interface and the restrictions work properly for me, but be aware that a lot has been changed on the inside ("it is bigger on the inside", lol), also for earlier Android versions. There is one thing I know of that needs improving and that is that the user interface might be updated too often with a lot of restrictions, which might cause delays and hangs. I will look into this tomorrow.

    This change was necessary, but it was a lot of work, so XDA thanks and donations are appreciated.

    I have just released beta version 0.25 in the Xposed repository.

    Changelog:

    With this release XPrivacyLua restriction's can be compared with XPrivacy's. There are now over 100 restriction definitions!

    XDA thanks and donations are appreciated.

    @CHEF-KOCH You have been given enough time to respond here. Now I just think it is pretty cowardly to write critical about XPrivacyLua, but not to tell what can actually be improved, especially because you were invited to do so.

    I still like to hear how XPrivacyLua can be improved, but I don't want to hear what is wrong with XPrivacyLua. You'll need to keep the scope of XPrivacyLua in mind (in short: privacy, not security), see the opening post and previous discussions about this for more information.

    Also, if you really know better, I like to see an original work from your hands to prove that. Actions speak louder than words.

    As it is now, you are discouraging one of the few people in the world who really did something substantial to improve privacy on Android. And don't go talking about VPNs, TOR, etc because your private information, like your contacts, will still leak.

    I also think you are pretty ungrateful for what I did so far.

    To others: if you see someone reference one of his blogs, please reference this comment in response.

    Edit: if you agree with this, please add an XDA thanks to this comment, so it will show up in the right column as a reference for others.
