Android: A recent change to Google Play's permission system made it possible for developerss to give themselves new permissions without you even realising it in some cases. MyPermissions helps give you some control back.
We scored our first look at Android 4.3 earlier this week. While we didn't see too much that thrilled us, word of a new hidden Permissions Manager that lets you set individual app permissions has our interest piqued. The power to control each app's granular permissions is a huge boost to privacy and security.
Dear Lifehacker, I have followed your guide to building a home server with FreeNAS, but I'm not sure what to do with the permissions on my files. Can I just set them all to 777, or is that insecure? This stuff is like Chinese to me, help!
Windows only: Sudo for Windows is an alternative for those with programs they often have to "Run as Administrator" in Windows XP or Vista, but offers a more convenient and accessible way of getting there. Rather than having to know an administrative password, "SudoWin" lets you use your own Windows password to elevate your privileges, and doesn't tie your account to the administrator's data folders when you log in. A handy tool to have around when you need it, and it runs from a right-click context item. Sudo for Windows is a free download for Windows systems only. Thanks, Joe! Sudo for Windows
