    what can I do to block windows store apps from getting location, mac, mic, pics, IP, vid, etc.?

    Is there anything like xprivacy for windows?

    I know there is app permission settings but the terms of use in the actual app suggest users need to give up far more information- example: angry birds. store permission: internet. terms of service: all they want everything.

    My question is how do I block this?

    Lets keep this relevant: no straying from the question.

    -no what do you have to hide?
    -no whiny devs about money lost,
    -or why is a big deal,
    -or if you don't like it, don't install it.
    -no justifying why they need X.

    As far as I know there is no way to do it besides going to the settings on Windows Phone and disabling GPS, Cellular Data and other stuff like that if you don't feel comfortable about it.
