This question already has an answer here:

Some apps ask for a ridiculous amount of permissions. Android tends to be you accept all the permissions and use the app or you don't accept all and don't use the app. This is different from how IOS handles permissions. For IOS, you can selectively allow permissions like location, notifications, photos, bluetooth, camera, etc. How can I do this on android. I don't care if it breaks certain apps. Sometimes their is a descent app that just ask for an overwhelming amount of permissions.

Any ideas? Android 5.1.1! No custom ROM. Don't have xposed? But I can install it if I need too.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • what version of android are you using? you can check your version by going to "Settings" > "About phone". the version number will be under the heading "Android version". also, since you're rooted, are you using a custom ROM or xposed framework, etc? if you're using a custom ROM, what's the name of it? – particlewave delta Dec 21 '15 at 0:54
  • @particlewavedelta 5.1.1 – James Smith Dec 21 '15 at 0:55
  • srry, i edited my original comment. take a look above for a few more questions. – particlewave delta Dec 21 '15 at 1:01
  • @particlewavedelta I have been trying to figure that out, from what I obtained. I don't have xposed framework and no custom rom. I have SuperUser though if that means anything – James Smith Dec 21 '15 at 1:09
  • unfortunately, there's no fine-grained permission control in your case. google added this feature to android in 6.0.x marshmallow. however, if you were to flash a cyanogenmod-based custom rom or the xposed framework, you could gain permission controls that way. there may be an app on the Play Store that will do this, but i'm not sure. what device are you trying to get permissions control of? – particlewave delta Dec 21 '15 at 1:26
