Recently, there are more information about the various leaks of personal information from smartphones of their respective owners. I decided to check how easy listen and peek. It was found that a huge network the number of spyware, many of which are free and very easy to install. How to resist them? There are anti-virus software, there is a program-blockers, they too much. However, I have stopped the choice on the application Paranoia: Malware. Why? Quite simply, this program combines the functions that are usually offered separately, then – all in one. But first things first.
Once installed, the application requests to allow access to the camera controls, but what we wanted, right? Allowed. The main screen Paranoia: Malware – large button to switch the mode of the application. Total of three modes.
Included protection: paranoia blocks record with the microphone, the camera locks work, and with the front camera too (so that there is even a flashlight does not slip), monitors the SMS (For more detail, discussed below).
Partially included protection: mode is automatically activated when you turn off some of the blockers, such as disabled tracking SMS – as in the picture.
Deactivating: simple, no one blocks or monitors.
Press the button, the mode selected, everyone!
By default, the app will try to scare you is not, but in the settings you can set the alerting method.
Another handy feature in the annex – The list of allowed applications. Paranoia will automatically service a running application, and disable security for applications which are on the list.
A nice bonus – a widget for your desktop android. By the way the widget was completely functional, so there is no need to constantly run the application, all in one click.
And about the SMS. Someone might scare this feature. but in fact it turns out to be a very useful thing. The fact that some viruses and spyware are used for the exchange of information, or simply to steal money SMS messages. You may not even know that someone sends or sends messages. Paranoia report in this case, for example, a number, and a message was sent. And if you get tired of warning – add application «messages» to the allowed list.
Yet it should be noted, the application does not require a connection to the Internet, it just will not send anything to anyone! Paranoia: Malware – just doing his job.
