Changed and improved procedures of threat detection and removal.

Introduced various fixes and enhancing in application operation.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • GET_PACKAGE_SIZE: Allows an application to find out the space used by any package.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • KILL_BACKGROUND_PROCESSES: Allows an application to call killBackgroundProcesses(String).
  • READ_LOGS: Allows an application to read the low-level system log files.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • REORDER_TASKS: Allows an application to change the Z-order of tasks.
  • RESTART_PACKAGES: This constant was deprecated in API level 8. The restartPackage(String) API is no longer supported.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
