The greatness of mobile operating systems is the ability to adapt. We have a phone that will never be equal to the neighbor, because we will install the applications you need and we like.
Google Play is enabling this diversity.But it has its drawbacks, as mentioned before.
When you install many applications, the users can get to violate the security of the operating system if you do not know what they install. Many applications installed and the uninstalled in 10 minutes, because testing is free and is great. You can download everything that catches your attention, and if you throw me off. But the danger is that we give access to an application at the time we installed. Let’s see how we can be informed about what may or may not make our applications.
AppBrain Ad Detector
This application comes on the heels of AppBrain, which as many know is a very popular alternative market. It is purely a security application, but has no action. That is, its function is informative , and we choose and what to do.
The application analyzes your applications installed, and generates a base where we can see the permissions “dangerous” with applications . This information can display in many different ways. For starters we can access directly the list of applications, where we see a summary of what they can do. If we agree to one of them see it all broken down and we have to uninstall shortcuts, open or manage the application.
The second section is the same but classified by the threats , not by applications. We will have a series of tabs with the threats, advertising networks used by your applications, social networks used and the developer tools included in the application .
In each tab will show the list of types that exist, with a number indicating how many applications make use of that feature. If you click on it will not come out this list of applications. With this goal is being able to detect any abnormalities in your applications. Applications that can collect money and should not, or can share your location and did not know.
As I said, the application does not perform any action with the “threats”.The last function of the application is live mode, which automatically analyzes we install new applications, indicating if they have permission dangerous.
The application is completely free . It has a very nice interface and is easy to use. If you want to be the bird of all that instaláis , I recommend it.
