[App] PDroid Privacy Protection

PDroid Privacy Protection : Take control of access to your private data by the applications you install.
PDroid Privacy Protection : The user has a right for using any application without worrying about their privacy.
ROOT is required to install. You will need to flash an (open-source) PDroid patch. See hxxp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1357056 for download and more info. Currently only supports Gingerbread (more to come).
An automatic ROM patcher for Windows is now available for download at hxxp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1357056. Direct download: hxxp://goo.gl/oztqS.

What does this app do?
PDroid allows you to block access to the following private data for any application regardless of its permissions:
– Device ID (IMEI/MEID/ESN)
– Subscriber ID (IMSI)
– SIM serial (ICCID)
– Phone and mailbox number
– Incoming call number
– Outgoing call number
– GPS location
– Network location
– List of accounts (including your google e-mail address)
– Account auth tokens
– Call logs
– Browser bookmarks and history
– System logs
– SIM info (operator, country)
– Network info (operator, country)
For device ID, phone and mailbox number, SIM serial, subscriber ID and device location it also allows supplying custom or random values.
Why use this instead of another permission blocking app?
– Applications do NOT crash when access to private data is blocked
– Fine-grained tuning of access to private data
– No background service needed
– Very small memory usage
– No impact on battery life
– No impact on performance
– 100% reliable unlike ROOT applications
– No ROOT required for the app to run
– No Android permissions required for the app to run
– Configurable notifications on private data access
PDroid Privacy Protection user reviews :
Great app.why would I want a app to access my contacts on my sum card? Etc. Took some time to work out mod of current from but worth every min. Root your phone and get this all for privacy. great work developer 100 stars if possible
A little extra work to get installed with the patch, but trust me it’s well worth it! Great interface and incredibly powerful. Nothing force closes on me at all despite locking almost every app down pretty hard. One enhancement I wouldn’t mind seeing is an option/setting to have each new app automatically block everything by default, then I can open it up as needed…kind of a firewall approach. I like having this app so much that I’m holding off flashing an ICS ROM until it’s ready to work with it.
