"Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed software that helps Android smartphone users prevent their personal information from being stolen by hackers."
While it isn't an app you can download something like this should have really been in Android from the start. 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 desperately needed for Android. How careful are you with watching/controlling what data your apps have access to?
