Anti Spy Mobile: It’s all about privacy and security !
Posted by admin at June 23rd, 2012
Generally, Android security is considered strict. Every app requests permissions from the owner of the device on install. The owner can reject requested permissions and decline the app. But how many of us are looking at requested permissions when installing new apps ? And what if somebody (wife, husband, parent or boss) takes your phone and accepts those permissions for you … ?
Spying and malware apps are everywhere – everything from children’s games that for some reason need to read our SMS conversations to Malware wanting to hijack our contacts list, capture our calls or location.
Anti Spy Mobile brings users a friendly way of seeing what permissions your apps want, and keeps an eye out for applications that could be malicious. The app has a scanner function that looks at your currently installed apps searching for well-know spywares, and also analyses the permissions of each app to identify whether it looks suspicious with spy-able permissions.
The results are presented in a very friendly interface, showing the user how many spywares are found, how many suspicious apps are found, a list of all installed applications and the last scan date.
The good think is that Anti Spy Mobile will not only show you whether you have a spyware, but will also give you the install time and date, helping you to identify who has put the bug on your phone.
Further more, the app will propose you to uninstall detected spywares or suspicious apps, and also will offer you to put the app in a “Safe List” if it is a false positive, and skip it on the next scan.
Although, the last two features are introduced only in the PRO version, if you use the free version you’ll be able to scan and clean your device.
As spyware and permissions have been the talk of the Google Play Store before, an application like this is definitely something that every android user should check in order to protect his privacy and security.
Rember, it’s all about privacy and security !
