    How to deny/restrict permissions without rooting the phone?

    I noticed that there are applications (such as "Permissions Denied") which enable you to deny some (or all) permissions to particular apps you've installed. Issue is that all of these require phone rooting (which is a no-no as it voids phone's warranty).

    My question would be, is it possible to deny permissions to apps without rooting? If yes, could you please provide links to apps that can do that (or other solutions).

    Thanks

    P.S. I've read a bit about the "TISSA (Taming Information-Stealing Smartphone Applications)", but I'm not is that an app or something else, as I couldn't locate it.c

    Welcome to AF!

    Without root you only way to stop an app from using a requested permission is to not install that app.

    Also check the links in my sig for guides about permissions :) They may help some.
