Hello! I've heard that there is an app permission manager in Android 4.3 OS, I wonder can I use it to block permissions for the apps I've installed, to make sure that none of it will harm my smartphone and what's more important — my personal information? Many thanks in advance!



Hi there, Jason!



New app permissions manager for Android 4.3 is surely a perfect tool for blocking various permissions and it is the tool many Android users have been waiting for. We at Jammer-Store will explain how does it work and what benefits it can give to you. First of all we should remind that when you install any application to your Android device, no matter if it is a smartphone or tablet, you have to approve a list of permissions that app requires to work properly. Malware uses those permissions rather frequently, because if you won't approve them – you won't be able to install the application.



In most cases, apps ask for permissions they don't actually need, like contact list access, phone calls and sending messages. Using those malicious apps were able to access your private data and send messages to premium phone numbers. That was a huge security flaw in Android OS. But with Android 4.3 you can forget about it. Simply block permissions the app doesn't need and be safe. But blocking permissions is not the best option, because nobody will guarantee that app will work properly after that.



The good news are that many users were forced to use mobile Internet signal blockers, to prevent infection and sending SMS to premium numbers – now it's in the past. Standard app permission manager is still blocked by default, but you can access it with a third party app, available at Google Play. Just don't forget to read its permissions list!



Thank you for your question, I hope, I've managed to help!
