@M66B

Would you think this new Android 11 feature could be leveraged in any way to monitor 3rd party sdk activity?

https://developer.android.com/previe...ccess-auditing

"This means that, if a 3rd-party SDK or library in your app calls an API that accesses private data, data access auditing allows your OnOpNotedCallback to examine information about the call. Usually, this callback object can tell whether the call came from your app or the SDK by looking at the app's current status, such as the current thread's stack trace."

I'm just wondering if I could see "Acme Analytic Company's code in FunChinaFlashlight app access your contact information."

This will not be possible.

What you say is obviously true, and although I don't currently have Android 10 on any devices the "location privacy" feature(s) come(s) to mind.

In my current state of mind I have hope for the future. 😍

Discussing about changing the real IMEI is not allowed on XDA.

Starting android 10 there is an option to only allow apps to access location only if the app is in use.

I just wanted to thank you, Marcel, for coding and supporting XPL (plus XP before that), and Fif for some really useful (non-privacy related) Lua scripts.

TikTok just got caught clipboard snooping on iOS 14. And we enjoy clipboard protection since 2014

is there a way to block these permissions:
android.permission.NETWORK_BYPASS_PRIVATE_DNS
android.permission.ACCESS_MEDIA_LOCATION
com.sec.android.SAMSUNG_MODIFY_IPTABLES

and this kernel service:
iptables-rstore
ip6tables-restore

i see no point in "granting" these permissions and have such a service running, while i wanna be in control of my iptables.


much love and respect to Marcel and Fif

You'll need to use a permission manager instead of a privacy manager for this.
