Android: privacy enhancements

Wer den Überblick verloren hat, welche Systeme Android in Sachen Privacy erweitern [können|werden], hier ein kurzer Überblick:

  • Google’s AppOps simply blocks permissions, it will not spoof them. And not all permissions or apps are available to be blocked.
  • CM’s PrivacyGuard is only for a very certain subsect of permissions, and is NOT aimed at spoofing or anonymity.
  • XPrivacy uses the XPosed framework, which is mostly centered on blocking info and may not work on all apps (i am not sure about system apps)
  • OpenPDroid is a full-featured privacy suite, and allows you to control all identifying/sensitive data
