Android Tip: Launching App Ops

In Android 4.3, Google has included an application known as App Ops. App Ops is an activity that allows users to enable/disable individual permissions of installed applications. Instead of granting a blanket of permissions during installation time, App Ops allows users to fine-tune the individual permission granted to applications.

At this moment, there is no way a user can directly go to the App Ops activity as it seems like Google is still fine-tuning the application (there are however, third-party apps on the Google Play that help you to do that – Permission Manager is a good example). However, if you are a developer, you can use the following intent to jump right into it:

startActivity(new Intent(

This will launch the App Ops activity.
