In Android 4.3 is a software called "App Ops" allows us to edit, set permissions for each application. Do not understand the reason that Google re-hide it, it did not mention Ops App in the Android 4.3 launch event a few hours ago. Fortunately, there is a programmer accidentally discovered and figured out how to run App Ops quickly and easily. All you need to do is install this shortcut into the machine is finished. When using the shortcut to run App Ops, you will see the card representing each group permissions, such as the Location tab contains the rights related to positioning, Personal card to access relevant information on the individual , is related to the card reader Messaging, SMS, and the card is Device permission for use notification, vibration, device configuration ...
In each such card, you will see a number listed app. Tap on each app is a detailed list of permissions will appear and you can turn them off. For example, touching the Facebook app, permissions off "Location" to the app will not be able to locate it anymore, right off "Vibrate", the message will not be sent out camera shake. There are a number of permissions, the app only when running or has been used at least once appear. In fact previously been a number of third-party app for managing permissions but permission App Ops intuitive and easier to use.
The downside that I see in the App Ops is that it is not specifically stated for users to know when an app a permission that is being shut down. For example, someone accidentally shut permission to locate the Facebook app, when I used to, I did not know why the machine is located. If there is a message stating that "The right of the navigation app is disabled", then things will be easier. Anyway, this is just a feature "hidden" is opened up, let's wait and see when they Google App Ops officially put into operation.
