Defend your data from apps you don’t use.

Permissions Auto-Reset

If you haven’t opened an app in a few months (like that music festival app you forgot about) Android can automatically turn its permissions off so that it won’t have ongoing access to your data. You can turn permissions back on anytime. It’s like housekeeping for your phone—that we do for you.
