SpyAware for Android

Developer's Description

PLEASE NOTE: SpyAware needs to be installed on your phone for 24 hours before it can give you a full intelligence report. SpyAware shows you what your apps are up to:The amount of data they take while your phone is idle When they use your location without your knowledgeWhich have a high number of intrusive permissionsWhere your data is being sentYour smartphone monitors you it reports to strangers on nearly everything you do.You know Apps take information but you assume they only take what they need, when they need it - that they just use it to provide you a service. You assume they protect the information once they take it. Unfortunately, this often isnt true.App makers harvest your private information for sale on the open market. Your phone continuously uploads your most private information to strangers even when its idle: texts, phone calls, photos, contacts, location, speed and direction of travel, browser history, and more.We believe that it doesnt have to be this bad. We believe that you should be able to trust your phone again. That the data captured and created by your smartphone belongs to you, and you should control if and when it gets shared, and with whom. That you should be notified when your data is taken and if it is used for a purpose you didnt intend. That you should have a say in the sale of your private information.You deserve better.Our primary goal is to give you transparency about your Android phones activity. SpyAware provides Who, What, Where, and When info about the data that is being pirated from your phone, from the apps that you download, and from the apps that came with your phone.Other security apps focus on the permissions for the apps that you download, but SpyAware looks at the whole picture to protect you and your data.Most importantly, we will never take and use your data like other security apps. We work for you not advertisers, data brokers or intruders intent on monitoring everything you do. How Does It Work?Once you install SpyAware, it begins watching your other apps immediately. It takes about 24 hours for SpyAware to have enough data to give you a comprehensive report. After 24 hours, you will be able to see the overall security status of your device. Clicking the active apps indicator will give you a list of your current apps, sorted by threat. Clicking one gives you a breakdown of why that app is rated the security threat that it is. If the app is high threat, it may be for one or more reasons, including: uploading an unusual amount of data while your phone is idle, using your location without your knowledgehave a high number of intrusive permissionssending your data to distant servers or even out of your countryAn interactive map shows you where your data is being sent, and lets you drill down to see who owns the servers that are sweeping up your private information. Use the clock icon on the bar to increase the amount of collected data you view, up to thirty days (if your phone has had SpyAware installed for at least a month). Then, take action: If an app is behaving badlyRemove the app if its not factory-installed. Post a review on the App StoreWarn your friends about it via Facebook or TwitterYou can even complain to the FCCWhen apps act badly, SpyAware will notify you. Stay tuned for far more coming up from our app. We will help you take back control of your phone. Now you can spy on the apps that spy on you!Recent changes:Initial ReleaseContent rating: Low Maturity
