Privacy in mobile apps is a fundamental aspect to be considered, particularly with regard to meeting end user expectations. Due to the rigidities of the Android permission model, desirable trade-offs are not allowed. End users are confined into a secondary role, having the only option of choosing between either privacy or functionalities. This work proposes a user-centric approach to the flexible management of Android permissions that empowers end users to specify the desired level of permissions on a per-feature basis.

Abstract

Privacy in mobile apps is a fundamental aspect to be considered, particularly with regard to meeting end user expectations. Due to the rigidities of the Android permission model, desirable trade-offs are not allowed. End users are confined into a secondary role, having the only option of choosing between either privacy or functionalities. This work proposes a user-centric approach to the flexible management of Android permissions that empowers end users to specify the desired level of permissions on a per-feature basis.
