    Hi Friends,
    Does anyone know how I can modify some of the permissions (not all) on my apps, but without rooting my phone? Thanks in advance. :)

    Any certain thing you're looking to do?

    I don't think you can without root

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. For now, it would be Identity. I have read tutorials on how you can modify app permissions but they all require root access and my phone isn´t rooted. I found the following tutorial that says you can without root, but you have to enable unknown sources and that you have to download the APK file from the developer. It´s not available in Google Play. Kind of scared to try it. should I? Thanks in advance. :pHow to Manage App Permissions on Android (No Root Required) « Android Gadget Hacks

    I wouldn't. If an app has permissions I don't like, then I don't install it. But that's your call
