PermissionDog

PermissionDog


PermissionDog lists all the applications you have installed and checks out what permissions each app is using.

Based on these permissions it sets how dangerous the application can be.

PermissionDog also supports realtime protection. Every time you launch an application
a notification pops up and shows how many permissions the app is using
and how dangerous that application is. (in case you missed reading the permissions when you downloaded the app).

You can exclude any app from Real Time Protection (RTP) or disable the RTP service.

It's like a really lightweight antivirus.

Less useful than I would have hoped. Seems to go crazy checking the same apps over and over. If you turn off RTP, does it do anything ever? Seems like choice between "does too much" and "does nothing." Permission descriptions are still cryptic.

Who let the dogs outs? This is awesome. I have gotten rid of several apps that I didn't use... they don't need My info. Love that it tells me how many permissions and what the rating is good to bad. Who knew apps needed so much info on me. Just being pro active.
