Permission engine

Post by a1655794 » Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:49 am

Hi. There is an awesome app for Android called Xprivacy. It is an advanced permissions engine not depending from app manifest (by default you cant revoke most of restrictions, because google is afraid that this made appmakers abaddon the platform because this would become unprofitable because most of android apps are ad-sponsored and advertisers want to know everything about users of apps. They are wrong: the best apps I have seen were opensource and adfree and were published in FDroid). It allows to restrict the apps access for some API, like anothe managers do, but unlike other third-party managers it does it in the way which make most of apps not to mention it (another managers cause exception be thrown (because they have only generic code for all permissions), but Xprivacy returns fake data (and sometimes this fake data can be ajusFdroid

I think you should transform sandboxie in not just a sandbox, but a high quality permission engine. The techniques are the same.
