The stock Android address book (com.google.android.contacts) is great, but I hate that many app can access its data. Just now I was casually trying an app, and realized that the app had sent my whole address book to their server in order to find who among my friends is using that app too.
While permissions can be blocked, it is not really convenient and might be cracked in the future, so I would like to have the same app, but just without the API (intents/content providers) that are used to read from it. That's the surest way to prevent my friends information from leaking.
It means that to call someone I will have to open the app and search for them. It also means that I won't see the name of the caller displayed. I don't mind.
Is there such an address book? I would like to avoid customizing/compiling it for myself.
- Contacts data not readable from other apps
- Import from VCard files (like the stock Android app)
- Free, ideally open source
- Android 5.1.1+
- Does not send any contact data to the Internet. Ideally no Internet permission
