Nowadays, it is prohibitive for apps market places, such as Google App Store, to thoroughly verify an app's resource permission requests to be legitimate or malicious. As a result, mobile users are left to decide for themselves whether an app is safe to use or not. To assist users to make correct decisions as for whether to accept a permission request or not, we propose RecDroid. RecDroid is a crowdsourcing recommendation framework that collects apps' permission requests and users' responses to

In this demo, we demonstrate a user case to show how the RecDroid system assists users in permission control. We also explain the major principles and processes behind that support the RecDroid recommendation system.
