    Is there anything that is like xprivacy- an andoid app that scrambles or restricts excessive data gathering from installed playstore apps.

    (remember the days when viruses took your contact list and listened on your mic? now you have to pay to get those kinds of "features" )

    Looking at windows 8 app store lots of apps, even paid apps want to grab everything. From your photos to your contact list and track you everywhere online and off as per their "privacy policy" or "terms of service"

    any way to restrict this behavior besides cutting internet access to these apps?
