Default NCSU Modifies Android To Include Privacy Mode

Researchers at North Carolina State University have managed to create a "privacy mode" for Android that would allow users to specify exactly how much and what information apps can get on a case by case basis. Who knows if we will ever see something like this included in Android by default or if custom ROMs will ever become available with this feature but I think something like this is&nbsp;desperately&nbsp;needed for Android. How careful are you with watching/controlling&nbsp;what data your apps have access to?</p>
