Smartphone apps can be a blessing and a curse. Sure, they help us with productivity, social sharing and communication, but sometimes they have access to more of our private information than we’d like. Think about all the times you’ve installed an app and granted various permissions without thinking what might be attached to them. We’ve all been there.
In an effort to help you identify the trustworthy apps from the risky apps Marble Security launched PrivacyHawk for Android. PrivacyHawk is able to scan your device and share what apps are potentially leaking or selling your private information, what apps are doing behind the scenes and letting you know what apps you can trust before you download.
The PrivacyHawk community encourages uses to rate apps and share feedback to help keep the app knowledgebase safe for others. Helpful to anyone that wants to research an app and compare it to others before they use.
Download PrivacyHawk for free and visit the website to learn more about how it works.
