    An app I wish to install wants access to everything on the Priv. May I restrict the app's access post install? The app is the conference app for a mid July conference I'm attending (2017PECON, a Professional Engineers annual conference).App wants access to EVERYTHING on my Priv!-2017pecon-app-permissions.jpg

    you should contact the app dev and ask which permissions it really needs and why. Seems to me more like lazy programming.

    you can revoke most permissions after install but the app may not function or some features may not work. Its not unheard of for these conference type apps to want alot of permissions as there is expected to be alot of media/info sharing going on, for example here is the Google I/O app permissions list.

    Free
    Version 5.1.4 can access:
    Identity

    find accounts on the device

    Calendar

    read calendar events plus confidential information
    add or modify calendar events and send email to guests without owners' knowledge

    Contacts

    find accounts on the device

    Location

    precise location (GPS and network-based)

    Photos/Media/Files

    read the contents of your USB storage

    Storage

    read the contents of your USB storage

    Wi-Fi connection information

    view Wi-Fi connections

    Other

    read sync statistics
    receive data from Internet
    view network connections
    create accounts and set passwords
    connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
    full network access
    control Near Field Communication
    read sync settings
    run at startup
    use accounts on the device
    control vibration
    prevent device from sleeping
    toggle sync on and off

    Maybe it's me, but I can't even get it to disallow the CB forums app to access my contacts. I can uncheck permissions, then uninstall app, but when I try to reinstall, it brings up a screen that looks like the security settings screen and tells me I have to enable something.
    I really don't like that the screen looks exactly like the normal security screen until you shrink it to a tile, then it says APK Permission Remover, at the top.
