We are sorry to inform you that we will stop further development of our F-Secure App Permissions application for Android. Google recently announced a switch to a runtime permissions model in Android 6.0, allowing users to have more information on and control over their apps. For this reason, we feel that F-Secure App Permissions core features are already covered by improvements in the operating system, and we will stop the further development of the application and remove it from the application stores. If you have the application installed, it will continue working, but it will not receive any updates. If you are looking for a service that offers a comprehensive overview of recommended and privacy friendly applications, or control over internet usage settings for children or privacy for wireless network or internet banking, we recommend you to try F-Secure SAFE or F-Secure Freedome for free at www.f-secure.com/safe or www.f-secure.com/freedome.
