You might think that Cyanogen Mod would get comfortable in their top dawg position as the custom rom leader, however the CM team continues to innovate with new features all the time. Privacy Guard was released last year. The app puts your data back under your control. Privacy Guard prevents other apps from accessing private information on your phone. When an app has been blocked by Privacy Guard history, contacts, gps and other data will appear to be disabled to apps trying to access that information. Cyanogen Mod announced today an addition to Privacy Guard. With the update you will be able to control the ability of apps to start at boot. This can help you to further protect your data and may even help with battery life. You can find this update in the latest nightly for your device.
