PDroid Manager allows you to manage the privacy settings offered by OpenPDroid. It is the preferred management app for OpenPDroid. It is the result of a lot of work by a lot of people, check the credits in the app.
This app allows fine-grained control of which user/system apps have access to your personal data. If you think apps are asking for an unreasonable number of permissions, this is one solution. By installing the OpenPdroid core, this app can leverage a custom API and give the power to the user.
You must have a custom framework installed on your Android device in order to use this app! I cannot stress this enough. You can either compile your own rom, or you can add the OpenPDroid framework to any open-source rom by using the Auto-patcher.
The Auto-Patcher thread is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1719408. The autopatcher allows you to use this app on CyanogenMod, ParanoidAndroid, PAC-man, SlimRom, and any other rom with published source code.
If the above requirements are greek to you, this is probably not an app you should put on your device. Fair warning.
Every aspect of this project is completely open-source. Contributions welcome!
Again...PDroid Manager requires a modified ROM which includes OpenPDroid or PDroid 2.0 in order to function. If you have not specifically chosen a ROM for your device with the intention of using OpenPDroid your ROM will almost certainly NOT support this application
Note: This application cannot function when installed at the same time as CollegeDev's PDroid 2.0. Uninstalling CollegeDev's app will not cause your PDroid settings to be lost.
For more detailed information about PDroid Manager, how to install an OpenPDroid-compatible ROM, or patch your ROM to be OpenPDroid compatible, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=34190204
Support will not be provided in response to ratings or comments. Seriously, use the XDA thread or github. I can't respond here.
If you would like a binary but would rather avoid using the Play Store to get it, compiled versions of this app can also be found at https://github.com/mateor/PdroidManager_binary
This experimental app is able to reduce any permission in an app - while enabling the user experience
Because of Permission Manager being experimental tool, we recommend that at this stage, only install if you are a skillful user.
We are just getting started and have many more surprises and functionality we would share with you soon...
Please take a minute to read the tutorial before you start and understand the process of permission reduction - and share with us any comment and feedback you may have along the way...
also, while reducing permissions - it may happen that a certain permission you would like to reduce will cause the app to crash, this is OK and if that happens please take a second to report that to us.
Also, display is too bright in low light, set the color to Black, can be screen pretty dark.

If you install an app from the Market – you rarely look at these permissions, and when updating an app – you do it even less.
And sometime when you have a lot of apps on your mobile – no one has an overview of what and why an app may do something.
Of course you can also later see through these permissions in the Android system, however, you have to click through them.
Privacy Monitor on the other hand offers you a quick overview of all the installed apps and their permissions and provides you a kind of score to quickly see which apps have most of the permissions.
Whether you trust an app or not – is up to you. You have to see who has created this app, how are the comments in the Market, etc. but Privacy Monitor is a good little helper.
Control over personal information is your universal human right and PlaceMask Location Privacy for Android™ assists you in maintaining location privacy against threats accessing your GPS and Network location (e.g. location-based advertising and profiling apps).
We are focused on delivering technologies that reduce location leakage from on-board GPS and Wireless Network location sources to protect your privacy. Your mobile carrier may still know where you are (roughly) but the applications on your device will not. If you want to anonymize your IP address, consider also using a proxy.
We also recognize a number of other uses for this technology when combined with your location-based apps (e.g. including virtual tourism and misrepresentation).
You will find this a useful companion to: Angry Birds and Carrier IQ (privacy), Wikitude and Google Places (tourism), or Facebook and Foursquare (spoofing).
To learn more about the ways your location is determined and what you can do to stop it, please visit our website at http://www.PlaceMask.com
• Three privacy settings (minimum, medium, maximum) that monitor settings, replace real location, and randomize movement to enhance privacy
• Scans applications on your device and reports those that use your location with context menu convenience functions
• Provides a status view of your "current" location and the policies in force
• Runs as a resident service that always watches for location leakage
• Easy unmasking to use real location when you need it (e.g. simply tap the PlaceMask to start and stop)
• Remote control through SMS to start or stop service (e.g. for use with Phone Finders)
N.B. UNINSTALL PlaceMask Location Privacy TRIAL before running this standard version
Activate PlaceMask service at the medium privacy level then switch to another location-based app to view your device in a new location.
PlaceMask Location Privacy for Android™ is an application that protects your location privacy. It monitors the location settings of your device and provides replacement locations to the other applications to enhance your privacy. You may view the current status of the application through key settings overlaid onto a map view. You may access a list of alerts related to the operation of the application or retrieve a report of all the applications on your device that use your location in some way. The settings in PlaceMask Location Privacy allow you to adjust application parameters like privacy levels. You may find general information about the application, its license, and its authors in the about dialog. And of course, we have provided an easy way for you to recommend PlaceMask Location Privacy to a friend or colleague by launching a text message from the application.
You are the most important part of this software and we believe usability is a key attribute to its success. If you find anything that you do not understand or is difficult to learn, remember, or use efficiently - please let us know. Your satisfaction is our objective.

Do you know how many apps and services have permission to access your private info? What about often those services access your data?
Protect yourself from unknowingly sharing photos, documents, locations, contacts, emails, or any other sensitive information. Use MyPermissions and take back control of your privacy!
✔ Scan your major online accounts to see what apps have access to your personal data
✔ 24/7 Protection - get alerts when apps gain access to your private info, and confirm your authorization or revoke permissions immediately
***** WHAT IS MYPERMISSIONS? *****
MyPermissions offers a powerful way to scan, track and control how applications access your personal information online. Know what apps you’ve connected to on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Instagram and more are accessing what data - and approve, remove or report them.
- MyPermissions helps protect against privacy invasions across all major online services, including:
MSNBC: "finds and fixes all your privacy settings"
Mashable: "Have 2 Minutes? Check Out Who Has Access to Your Social Media Accounts"
USA Today: "See what programs and services can borrow your keys [...] and think carefully and skeptically to decide if they still deserve that privilege."
Wired: "Finding the permissions pages can be tricky, but the nice folks at MyPermissions made a handy dashboard linking to every one"
***** HOW DOES IT WORK? *****
- Select an account you'd like to scan. We'll take care of the rest by scanning your account for external connections and give you a report on what apps or webpages have permissions to do what kind of activities.
- Use the permission manager to get an overview of who's accessing your data on all your monitored services
- Need to enter your credentials? No worries! We don't use, collect, or store ANY of your personal data (we promise!) -- we'll direct you to the account's home website and you'll enter your information into their server
- MyPermissions is free to download and free to use with some limitations. Scan and monitor your first service for free, and invite friends and to unlock more services thereafter. Alternatively, you can eliminate the wait time and unlock everything with a paid subscription.
***** UPDATES *****
