    Hello all. I'm the real Shrek, an Ogre living in a swamp.

    My concern is privacy on Android. Most applications these days wanting access to my Personal Information including log data, my Contacts, my Accounts, etc. all while having full Internet access. I simply cannot permit that, consequently I can no longer use many core applications. I abandoned Pandora in favor of Slacker last year Slacker too "upgraded" to require access to my personal data. So they are out, as is Last.FM for the same reason ... the list go on and on. I have few usable applications that are not spyware.

    I need to block permissions. For that I need to root my phone (or so I believe). So I'm here and on Android forums to learn of other user's experiences.

    Hello Shrek! Welcome to the forums.

    Your concern for privacy is very valid and I know just the app that you are looking for. It will allow you complete control as to which apps may and may not access every Android permission that there is and it is toggle-able (if that makes sense). The app is called LBE Privacy Guard and can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ity.lite&hl=en

    It does require root though. Which model of phone do you have?
    Living dangerously, to me, is eating spaghetti with a white shirt on.

    Welcome to the forum, Shrek! A similar app to the one Ollie mentioned is Privacy Blocker, also available in the Play Store. Privacy Blocker is currently on sale for $1.99. There is a "lite" (free) version called Privacy Inspector, which IDs all the things that Privacy Blocker blocks, so you can try it to see if you like the interface, features, etc.

    Thanks for the suggestions of LBE Privacy Guard, and Privacy Block / Inspector. I've tried the latter; have not heard of the former but will check it out.

    By the way I have a Samsung Epic 4G Touch. Fiona has the Samsung Replenish as well as the first Samsung Galaxy tablet.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Hello my name is Simon and I just signed up to the site today. I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 and it's my first smartphone. The reason I joined the site is that I am looking for information on how to really take advantage of a smartphone and not just use it to read e-mails and post on Facebook and twitter. I would like any hep you can give me as to how to understand the phone's true capabilities. Thank you in advance.
