Hi all,

One common complaint I see about android apps posted on here is the permissions an app demands on installation. Moboclean allows you to monitor and restrict these permissions on an individual level, meaning you can decide what apps you've installed can & can't access.

It isn't available on the play store (not sure why), so you'll need to install from the website. It gets great reviews on the xda-developers website (http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-uu-apppurifier-t3071441)

Spiel from the developer

But if this comes from a 'non approved' source there is a possibility that it could contain malicious code itself.
I know that's a sceptical point of view and lots of people will use this and declare it is safe.
No vote either way from me.

the fact xda has forum post generally gives it a thumbs up for me including safety wise... they are a great community

Agreed but lets be honest there is no guarantee that apps on either Apple or Google stores are free of nasty stuff. There was a news story the other day about 100s of apps being removed from Apples store due to having malicious software in them Link

The person(s) making this app are engaged in feedback on the XDA site, which has some pretty techically savvy people on it, so I'm inclined to believe this is safe. There is always a risk though, so worth pointing out.

I totally agree; too risky to install it as no idea what codes it may have. Not prepared to compromise my passwords, personal details, etc.

I think xda users are quite savvy and would be able to point out security issues.

But if an app needs to do something, like connect to the internet, but can't because of this app then obviously it's going to break the app until the permission it needs has been restored, right? So ofc it can break apps if used incorrectly.

I would expect a lot of uncaught java.lang.SecurityExceptions using something like this.

In layman's terms, most app developers will assume that a user would not be able to deny them access to certain things. When they go off to download an ad or access your contacts or whatever, it won't check first that it is allowed to. Then it will crash.

​the app does not stop anything connecting to the internet by default. the option is there for you to do it but all it does is stop apps automatically loading when your phone starts and letting them constantly run in the background. only problem I have run into is with any Amazon apps I have downloaded as some check the Amazon store is running before they will load so I just left it alone. I now have on average 295mb memory free on my moto g 2nd gen compared to 86mb before. using.

This feature will be part of Marshmallow (Android 6.0) when it comes out soon and it will be a much safer option.

You mean you read the first few replies to the xda thread. If you read further and further you'd see the 'breaking' is either usually the users fault for not realising what they are doing, and the fact that Google login support is not available properly, so any google login needed app won't work if 'cleaned'.

Depends on what the request to access the internet is for. If it is a browser of course it won't work. If it is only wanting internet access to put ads in the app, then it won't necessarily crash the app at all.

Just get Greenify from the App store if you're unsure if this is safe or not.

We need to be very cautious and avoid installing any third party software which is NOT legitimate.

I wont suggestion anybody to download any suspicious application (app) which has not approved by system owner. There could be serious consequences that one might can face after breaching the security barriers.

Safety should be a top priority
#24
I cannot recommend it, removed all data/settings from my apps and made some ad-dons incompatible (such as widgets or any extension for Dash Clock)
Some re-installed apps by this app will have weird names..

Had to factory reset phone (bought two weeks ago so not a huge loss) and re-install apps from Google Play

Sorry no vote from me

And how long until the dev works out that if that does not work then block the app from working? Similar how some websites block people with ad-blockers. If ads don't show they make no money so why let it work?

This only works if minority does it - once it becomes mainstream then app devs will take note and fight back - this is one reason Google removed the "leaked" permissions in the first place.

Downloaded this for my partner's phone as bloat ware was a bit of a problem and she didn't want me rooting it. Her phone now runs beautifully. Thank you very much!
