    Hi,
    I've been enjoying Android Marshmallow and its ability to restrict app permissions, but I think I may have come across a security loophole.

    I normally give Google Play Services broad access to my data. Now, say that I download an app (i.e. Angry Birds) and restrict its access to my contacts. Can't this app still get to my contacts by making an data call to Google Play Services?

    Any help or feedback is greatly appreciated!
