A New Android App Gives You Amazing Control Over What Your Other Apps Can Do

 


 

 

You know how, when you download a new app, at some point your phone tells you, "this app wants permission to ..." and the app tell you that it wants  to track your whereabouts, or access you contact list, etc.

Say no, and you might not get to use the app.

In the last version of Android, Google had included a feature called App Ops. It let you decide what you wanted to allow each app to do. Were you cool with the app waking up the device? Tracking your location? Accessing your camera? You got to choose.

And then, in the newest version, KitKat, it looked like Google removed App Ops.

It turns out, Google didn't remove it, it hid it.

A new free app called App Ops by developer Color Tiger launched today taps into that hidden feature and brings it back.

If you are a savvy enough Android user to have root access to your phone, there's also a pro version of App Ops that lets you control even more things. Root access is when you break into the phone's software, to control the parts of it that normal users aren't supposed to mess with.

The Pro version of App Ops lets you do things like change permissions for multiple apps at once.

I personally recommend this app for devices with limited storage , as it gives a clean graphical representation of what actually is occupying your memory and its free too.

Post updated.

You don't need to add the URL codes, just the link will be fine. Also I removed the coding at the end of the image url so the size fits better. Select edit in your post and take a look for future reference.

Jazakallah.

Is Your MacBook Webcam Watching You?



A word of warning to MacBook owners: Beware of what you do in front of your laptop camera, for you never know who could be watching.

Two Johns Hopkins University researchers uncovered a loophole in Apple's iSight system that allowed them to hack into some versions of MacBook laptops and iMac desktops and disable the webcam indicator LED.

It sounds harmless, but the discovery essentially turns your computer into a peephole for hackers - like the one who spied on 19-year-old Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf.

In a paper titled "iSeeYou: Disabling the MacBook Webcam Indicator LED," Matthew Brocker and Stephen Checkoway described the process of reprogramming an iSight camera's microcontroller to disable the LED activation light, and eavesdrop on an unsuspecting user.

"Our results in this paper demonstrate that, at least in some cases, people have been correct to worry about malware covertly capturing images and video," Checkoway and Brocker wrote. "We show a vulnerability in the iSight webcam that affects a particular range of Apple computers ... that can be exploited to turn on the camera and capture images and video without the indicator illuminating."

By doing so, the team was able to capture video and photos unbeknownst to the person in front of the computer's camera.

Brocker and Checkoway focused their testing on older machines, like the iMac G5 and Intel-based iMacs, MacBooks, and MacBook Pros from 2008 and earlier, so it's unclear if newer machines are also vulnerable.

The duo were inspired to tackle this topic after a webcam controversy within Pennsylvania's Lower Merion School District. About 2,300 students at Harriton High School were given Mac laptops, but unbeknownst to those students and their parents, the laptops were equipped with tracking software that could remotely activate the computer's webcam to take photos of the user, as well as capture screen shots. It was intended as a means to locate lost or stolen laptops, but was apparently activated in more questionable circumstances as well.

The researchers informed Apple about the LED disabling vulnerability in July 2013 and the virtual machine escape in August. "Apple employees followed up several times but did not inform us of any possible mitigation plans. The iSightDefender code was also provided to Apple and is now publicly available," they said.

"In the past few years, the ever-expanding set of sensors present in commodity laptops and smartphones has prompted the security and privacy community to begin searching ways to detect and limit the undesired use of sensors," the "iSeeYou" paper said. "At the same time, researchers have demonstrated attacks exploiting the presence of sensors."

Checkoway and Brocker offers some suggestions for how Apple can defend its iSight camera against attacks, but there is no word what Cupertino will do to patch the problem.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

(salam)

What's the best typing app for android guys ?

I don't mind paying for it but it has to be worth it, the pre installed one is slow and pathetic. Need something faster like the iPhone.

Speed is down to the user.

I can do an essay in no time using the keypad on the HTC.

I've used the iPhone keypad and it's lame, not even a comma without touching another button. Too slow. I also don't need to use predictions as that also slows you down.

Just type away, awesome keyboard.
