The Awesome Privacy Tools in Android 4.3. Android 4.3 has added some privacy protections to the OS. You can prevent some intrusive data gathering by specific programs by installing App Ops Launcher from the Play Store. It allows the control of data gathering by specific apps, and allows the user to preserve privacy for certains types of data. Very nice. No, you can't ever again have really private data. However, you can raise it from the dead and it will walk around.
