Incredible app! I installed it and found that I had purchased the PRO some time ago! Don't know why I uninstalled it! It lists all your apps, showing all the permissions you have granted each. Everything is in alpha order making it so easy to open the apps and make adjustments! Very nicely written and easy to operate. It's a handy tool and one that might save you from prying eyes.

aSpotCat is an essential Android security tool. It provides users a quick, reliable way to directly survey all apps word-for-word permissions, revealing an otherwise off-limits, or beyond-surface, "raw" view in to the user's Downloaded & System apps permissions capabilities in detail, and by category. For example, useful to identify connectivity vulnerabilities from wifi, network, & broadcasts permissions running rampant in all variety of apps. Totally worth it to support app for ad free use. 💛

Works perfectly on my rooted phone. The user who said "modern" android phones have this functionality built-in is a level 1 user (knows how to turn on a phone). Try searching for a specific obscure permission by string name with the built-in settings and tell me how it goes ;)
