Add mock/fake contact list feature to Advanced privacy


Some apps require you to get contact list data. It would be great to have a mock/fake contact list to provide to such apps, so you don’t disclose your real contact list to some apps!

Thanks in advance!

but… do you really need this app? this and not an other one?
is there no alternative of it which may passed for your usage?

May I ask you the name of the app ?

for the mean time, you can create a “work” profile for the contacts app. Your real contacts would be in the work profile while the default contacts app has nothing or even fake people.


Should you be rooted: XPL-EX (successor of XPrivacyLua) can do exactly that (pro version of XPrivacyLua works in its successor). Without pro you can block contact-access your any app, pro can give a fake list.

Thanks for the replies. The system profile is a good workaround for my usecase!
