Android/iOS: The apps on your smartphone each have a ton of permissions, some of which are necessary, others not so much -- MyPermissions helps you manage them all, and cut off the ones that like to snoop where they don't belong. MyPermissions has been around for a bit, but their latest update includes active scanning for apps and app updates that change their permissions levels, or start using permissions they never used before -- especially useful if you have auto-updates turned on at Google Play.
Open the app up, and it will scan your installed applications and report back which ones that use things like your location, access your inbox and contacts, have access to your camera or photos and so on. You can tap any category to see more about each app and category, organised by "risk", high to low. When you see that a silly time-wasting game has access to your photos, you have the option to either add the app to your trust list, uninstall it or see what other permissions it has access to. Best of all, MyPermissions quantifies the permissions an app has access to in terms of real impact to you, so you don't worry about what something could mean. You'll know.
All in all, it's a great way to find out what access all of your apps have at a glance, and choose which apps get the OK to access your data and which ones don't. Hit the link below to check them out.
