    [FREE][APP][UPDATE 09/24]Parasol-privacy advisor and permission manager-1.jpg

    Parasol (alpha) is a community-based privacy advisor and permission manager, which creatively designed for Android 6.0.

    Parasol can help users protect their privacy by providing the following information:
    • The purpose of each permission of each app.

    • Whether the permission is abused or misused.

    • Whether users can safely turn off the permission without compromising app's major features.

    • To integrate with permission management UI under Android 6.0, so users can control permissions directly via Parasol.

    How does Parasol work?
    The core concept of Parasol is community.
    There are a variety of anti-virus apps working for Android at present. Even Google has used bouncer to detect permission abuses. Unfortunately, they are still on the way to find the best solution.
    We believe that the real knowledge and deep insight come from users. By leveraging expert users' knowledge and judgments, we can create a huge database, including permission recommendations and privacy suggestions for all Android apps. This database will benefit all the Android users.

    How powerful is this database so far?
    It is capable of describing accurate permissions for more than 10,000 popular apps, while providing permission and privacy recommendations for more than 680,000 popular apps.

    Where is the data from?
    Before we build Parasol, we already have 4+ years experiences in permission management and privacy protection.
    We provide permission management solutions for several major Chinese smartphone brands such as Xiaomi, Meizu, One Plus, etc.
    Based on our studies on permission management and analysis of hundreds of millions feedback from users, we built the unique database for Parasol.

    Will we open the database?
    Yes, we will open it in the future.

    Current status
    Parasol currently supports Android 5.0 and above. The permission configuration feature supports Android MNC preview and above.

    Future plan
    The parasol is still in an early alpha stage. We will make our release plan based on users’ suggestions.

    Won't allow to change anything. Check out the last screen shot. Hell I didn't even know I was running Android M. Especially since this is a Verizon LG G4 phone.
    Permission Nanny seems better.
    All this app does is to list what my risks are.

    You guys can see from this pic, if u click the "Feedback", there will be a popup showing the permission usage of a specific app. All the users can define the permission purpose of this app as individual experience after use this app. After you submit your defination, i will analyze the data and return the result to all the users.
    I just fixed a bug of this feature. Now the QUESTION is:
    will you use this feedback feature to submit your choice?
    if yes, do u think this is a good/necessary feature and do u think the results are believable?
    if no, could u leave your reason for me?

    Thx a lot~
