Which apps can’t you trust
As of Android 6 (Marshmallow), Google has made app permissions easier to control. To check there’s nothing dodgy already lurking on your device, run a scan with MyPermissions Privacy Cleaner (bit.ly/ perm417), which tells you which apps pose a threat to your personal information. Suspicious permissions include ‘Modify your contacts’, ‘Use your precise location’, ‘Draw over other apps on your behalf’, ‘Control Near Field Communication (NFC)’ and ‘Read your text messages’, although some sound scarier than they actually are. There’san iOS version of MyPermissions
(bit.ly/permios417), although this focuses more on unsafe privacy settings across social networks. Note that some features in the Android app, such as editing permissions, are only available in the paid-for edition.
