In the past i found a thread but it looks its removed so i start a new one.

Anyone using http://repo.xposed.info/module/org.s...abs.pmpandroid ?

Since Xprivacy is not under active development this is maybe a little alternative.
I don't test it yet but maybe someone here have experience with that app?

Latest release is from July, 2015.
Although, I see some new commits on github so I guess new release might be coming soon.

I get this answer to my mail to the PMP team:

Quote:

With regards to the XDA forum thread, we have recently been focusing on
improving the functionality and robustness of PMP. Since the stability of
PMP has improved over the past few releases, expect to hear more from us
soon

PMP is not open-source at this time, though this may change.

Regarding the community, again, expect to hear from us soon

Regarding F-Droid, we may go this route if we open-source PMP in the future.

Hi, I'm a little confused regarding setting the "default behavior for group permission".

Is that mean if I set a permission to "ask" on that app setting, then the same permission from "default behavior for group permission" setting will apply without giving notification, is that right?

Really nice app by the way.

.. and a more recent posting by Marcel, the developer of Xprivacy: https://forum.xda-developers.com/xpo...3#post69284003
However, there seem to be only very few choices except from xprivacy. PMP is as far as I can see actively developed and an academic project at Carnegie Mellon University in the US. But, as mentioned before, opening the source of PMP to the public would be a big sign of trust I think.

I wouldn't really trust something to protect my privacy if I can't see what it's doing lol

Even though Xprivacy is not under active development, there are no open issues on GitHub about security risks. Therefore, I still consider Xprivacy up to date and a secure software to protect my privacy. I cannot say this about PMP, since it is closed source.
A lot of the Xprivacy development was about implementing features and increasing usability. Essentially, it is this part of Xprivacy that is affected by the stop of development. Personally, I like the current version and still deem it "good enough" in terms of usability. As protection of my privacy, I deem Xprivacy an essential tool. It is one of the reasons why I have not updated my phone to Nougat yet.

True that!

I have no idea why they are not releasing the source code for PMP if it is a college project and not planning for monetization. This might be tracking more information from us than we think so we definitely need to be careful with closed source xposed modules.
