  • CyanogenMod introduced a pretty popular feature called Privacy Guard, that can be considered similar to Google’s AppOps from Android 4.3. The idea is that Privacy Guard will be merged into early CyanogenMod 10.2 builds.

    The functionality here includes the ability to single click any app from the main menu in order to change its permissions. I’m talking location, reading the contact list, the call log, calendar and texts. You can also switch from a single click to a long press and users will be able to see all the currently used permissions and the On/Off status they have.

    The Privacy Guard has an Advanced menu item, that allows the user to quickly access the native AppOps UI, hidden by default. You can also filter the way the apps are shown in the main view and hide them if need be. Privacy Guard can be enabled for all freshly installed apps and functions will include Location, Reading Contacts, Reading Call Log, Reading Calendar and SMS/MMS permissions.
