    Default Disable Specific App Permission for Specific or All Apps

    Hi guys,

    So, I am a little concerned about phone security, like most of you.

    I have had androids for over two years now and am getting more and more concerned every time I download an app and seeing that it wants to READ my SMS message and Contacts. These are VERY personal information, aren't they?

    Is there a way I can disable reading of SMS messages or any one of the other permissions by specific apps, or all apps????

    Are we living in a world where any "joe schmo" can upload an app the to the app store and wait for those inadvertent downloads and collect all your personal information, and that's after all the time we spend protecting our identity and personal details?? What am I missing here? Help me understand!

    Thanks.

    If you're on Android 4.3 you can install permissions manager to manage some of the app permissions.
