AbstraktAndroid devices are widely used on a daily basis. As those devices can open doors for attackers and companies to privacy sensitive data, developers have to be aware of potential risks. We introduce the project of Privacy Friendly Apps, explain its design principles and describe some of its resulted apps. The long-term goal of this project is twofold: (1) raise awareness of developers regarding potential privacy violations posed through unnecessarily overprivileged apps; (2) compile a list of common errors and mistakes that lead to unintended privacy violations.
