Applications in mobile-marketplaces may leak private user infor-mation without notification. Existing mobile platforms provide lit-tle information on how applications use private user data, making it difficult for experts to validate applications and for users to grant applications access to their private data. We propose a user-aware privacy control approach, which reveals how private information is used inside applications. We compute static information flows and classify them as safe/unsafe based on a tamper analysis that tracks whether private data is obscured before escaping through output channels. This flow information enables platforms to provide de-fault settings that expose private data only for safe flows, thereby preserving privacy and minimizing decisions required from users. We built our approach into TouchDevelop, an application-creation environment that allows users to write scripts on mobile devices and install scripts published by other users. We evaluate our ap-proach by studying 546 scripts published by 194 users.
