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.

User reviews of PermissionDog
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.

Your privacys best friend Thanks a million for creating an app that tells me what permissions each app is requesting, yet this app requests NO PERMISSIONS. I'm off to look for a button that lets me buy you a beer

Very good app But it's a little buggy you can't read the permissions in the notification

Must have Now if we could just force the app writers to explain, for example, why a flashlight app needs to see your call history.

Out of sight, but works 24/7 I like the notifications ease of the system. Do not know all of the ins and outs of the programe, but it seems that I am not required to do a lot. Thanks to the developers.
