  1. Azber Hussain-avatar

    Great app to take back control, enhance security and privacy on Android. Works great. Simple to use. Thank you!!

  2. Dave Raymond-avatar

    apk This is a really nice app! It's the only permissions app I've found that allows you to separately Allow/Deny each component of a permission. For example, for the "Location" permission,I can separately control the "approximate by network" location and the (exact) "GPS" location. With other apps, it "Location Allow/Deny" as one switch for both, period. While some apps need your location, many just need your "area", so with this app, I can turn the GPS off for that app and save battery. Now multiply that by a bunch of apps! Great work, Dev! Will buy!

  3. Xavin Dayal-avatar

    app ops permission manager unlocked apk I rarely give 5 stars but this application is amazing. Controlling background activities and permissions is a breeze.

  4. Kam M-avatar

    app ops permission manager pro apk Superb app for controlling and viewing app permissions, it's probably been said before, but this should have been built into android. Only reason for the 4 star rating is because you have to apply the adb command after every boot. I'm using another app that uses the privilege adb method, but that survives a reboot so I'm not site why this app cannot do the same. Even so its a very useful app. Thanks

  5. Eric Myllyoja-avatar

    pro By denying the Audio Focus permission I'm finally able to listen to podcasts in the background while playing games. My long struggle is over!

  6. Manny Manuel-avatar

    download app ops permission manager Ilove this app because it allows you to connect when you're trying to do a bit more to your stuff like connected together from the safe area are in your files or whatever and I really like it because it'll connected together give you permission to do it.but I like that I still I still get permission every time from Google play store because I don't like to get my stuff on punishment like a child or something still bothers me pretty bad.

  7. Tom Mostafa-avatar

    permission manager app ops apk download have to downgrade this to 1 star. This app hangs upong start for long 30s until network timeout reached. it obviously tries to go to internet but i have firewall and any thraffic for this app is blocked. If i disable wi-fi/4G it immediately loads. Extremely wrong behaviour considering the fact that i paid for this app. Another example why people NEVER should pay for android apps and support developers that dont understand basic rules.

  8. Nasty Bedazzler-avatar

    Nasty Bedazzler


    permission manager app ops 4.4 apk Awesome app, exactly what i was looking for. i hated certain apps taking audio focus, after using this app for one minute i was able to deny that permission, tested the apps in question and it worked like a charm. The features in this app should be a built in features of Android.

  9. Mister Anthrope-avatar

    Mister Anthrope


    4pda how do i make this app stop trying to connect to the internet? I don't understand why an app designed to protect privacy would be constantly trying to connect to the internet. absurd. the only reason for 3 stars is bc it actually works

  10. A Google user-avatar

    app ops permission manager скачать Non existent support. I sent 3 emails for a clear request (use of application outside Google Play), never got an answer. As a result although I have purchased the app, I can use it only as the free version. Well done guys

  11. Encik cikguprof-avatar

    Encik cikguprof


    i feel very secure after using this. premium user can automacally set permission by template. work flawlessly using shizuku mode.

  12. Eddie Mac-avatar

    Love this app! Sorry i didn't review it before. It always comes through when I need to put the lock down on apps that don't want to behave. Been using it for years now on and off. Thanks to the devs!

  13. Mohamed Ubaid-avatar

    Tired of closing the payment popups. Shows a popup to pay for the pro version every time you unlock the phone. If you want to force the users to pay stop free version of the app which becomes useless without payment anyways.

  14. Papa Legba-avatar

    Deprecating standalone pro app was very unfortunate and felt like an attempt to rip users off. But this app is pretty good and feels worth the money.

  15. Dorith Duncan-avatar

    for me just too many unwanted downloads, otherwise I'm comfortable with my new phone Where are the arrows on the smartphone at the bottom? difficult to go backwards and forwards

  16. Qutaiba Khader-avatar

    everything is perfect, just add some shortcuts to check permissions faster(like shrt cut for all apps running in background)

  17. Josiah Trigg-avatar

    Really great app! Follow instructions!

    Best app to manage privacy settings on Android devices! This developer should continue working on this kind of apps/modules! Very lovely and amazing.

  20. Jerrin Francis-avatar

    Wanted an app to control permissions for apps especially startup and run in background. Does its job really neatly. Must have app if you want to get max battery

  21. Joseph-avatar

    Works well but disappointed it requires a separate app. Also, app really needs a sort by modified (modified apps at top) option

  22. Lubomír Břoušek-avatar

    Lubomír Břoušek


    Really cool app. I use it to prevent apps from running in background (Aliexpress, PicsArt,...). Samsung Galaxy S5, AEX 8.1 Oreo ROM

  24. A Google user-avatar
