10 Android Security Apps to Maintain Your Privacy

Android Security Apps

Android undoubtedly have some pretty exciting features added recently to its product line this year. Be it Google Pixel phones or Kodak’s first step into the smartphone market, it is still dominating as a leading operating system in today’s smartphone era. Yet with the level of capabilities and advanced features arrives the risk of vulnerabilities and other threats. The OS seems to suffer the same problem – even if its image isn’t absolutely accurate, compared to the way people view iOS.

When one searches on Google the term security apps, it shows a long list of antivirus and anti-malware software. While these have a specific use for some people, generally there is actually much more that you can do to ensure your safety aside from merely installing an antivirus app.

That’s the reason it is so serious about keeping your record private and why Google has made it a key feature, thanks to its “Application Sandbox”. Given that, even if a malware is somehow accidentally opened, it is forbidden to affect or access other areas on the same device.

Apart from the basic set ups, disabling the option for “install from unknown sources”, and other common sense settings, there are several other alternatives out there that can help you boost your privacy and peaceful mind.

Here we have come up with this post that lists some of the popular apps which will help keep your info threat-free. Read the post to get started.

Popular security apps for Android-

App Lock

Available as a free download, App Lock is a popular service that comes handy a lot. The main motive is to limit all selected applications with a passcode to abstain people from getting in and accessing anything you don’t want to share.

The ideal use would be to save banking services, cloud storage, email, gallery, and other such confidential locations. You can even hide your social media platforms from prying eyes. It is a cake walk to use and works well on all models. You don’t have to pay a penny and there is no hidden cost to bother you; just the icing on the cake.


If there’s to be one simple way to stay protected all the time, it is to keep your login details and all sensitive data fresh at regular intervals. While the idea is great, it becomes confusing and messy at times to remember so many passwords for different accounts. Here 1Password does the entire legwork for you. It remembers all your details in the form of encrypted content that keeps the information safe. It allows you to sign into your favorite sites with a click for free.

Find Your Phone

Are you worried about losing your phone at some busy place or it being stolen? Fret not; should you ever lose your device, you can simply use the new Find Your Phone feature. By using the “find my phone” feature on any Google browser, you will be able to locate your phone. You can even lock it remotely or call it, safeguard your accounts, or just leave a callback number on the screen for the person who finds it. It’s really a nice solution for the freaked out owners who just get stuck after a lost phone.

Android Device Manager

Simple yet functional, this is an inbuilt anti-theft service available by default on every Google-enabled product (practically). Using the feature, you can access it anytime by simply heading to the official website mentioned there. Once you are there, you will be able to choose from different options.

You can choose to locate, erase its memory remotely if you want, or even reset your lock screen PIN. It is simple to use, though in the majority of the cases people uses a web browser. The server is free, inbuilt, and it’s definitely something that you should have always enabled.


LastPass is a popular password manager that allows you to store your passwords in a safer and easier way. Apart from that, you can store your PINs and otherwise sensitive data in a type of vault which is ultimately accessible to all of your devices on your request. It is way safer than writing down all your credentials and confidential information or keeping it somewhere online.

Fortunately, the mobile version comes free with an upgrade option to Premium, in case you want to sync to multiple ones, enjoy cross-platform and priority support. LastPass also automatically logs you into desired services. For added benefit, you can also get LastPass Authenticator.

mySecure Mail

mySecure Mail is a universal email client that lets people manage an unlimited number of mail accounts from different providers. It keeps all of your emails organized in one place and makes sure they are reliable using its encryption and password-protection sign-ins features. What’s more, it’s completely free to use.


In case you have never heard or used a VPN before, we should tell you that it is one of the great ways for reliable protection. It safeguards your entire online activity by means of encrypting all the data (incoming and sent) as well as secures all Internet traffic to privatize your connection.

Tor Messenger

Tor Messenger is an encrypted solution that lets you enjoy private conversations. It is a cross-platform chat platform which sends all messages directly over Tor Network. Using this, you can send communications across Tor for free.


Similar to Tor Messenger, Signal is another encrypted messaging and VoIP solution that presents a sure-fire way to communicate with people safely on devices. It offers end-to-end encryption to secure all your conversations. It can also verify the identity of people messaging you as well as the integrity of channels/platforms they are using.


Although the majority of cloud storage solutions are away from risks all the times, yet at times you may want to keep something that you don’t want to be public somewhere else. Here the Sync by BitTorrent proves handy enough by letting you set up your gadgets as cloud storage hosts. You can then send your files to/from these hosts to others. It is a reliable alternative as it encrypted files as they are sent for an added level of protection. Good thing is that you know where your file is going, i.e. directly to your other sources. It calls itself a “direct transfer” given that your media or other stuff is never stored anywhere near them.

These were some of the handy apps to make sure your gadget is safe. You can find more options online to ensure that there’s no misuse of your information.

Following the Light

  Philosophical and Practical Approaches to Using Light Sources By Rick Trottier   Light is the incontestably essential commodity of photography. Light reflects, refracts and is absorbed by what is around it, creating opportunities for colors to be more vibrant, shadows to be stronger, textures to be clearer and all lines, curves and angles to be resolved into composition that delights the eye. Light can be soft and diffuse or it can be harsh and unrelentingly intense. It can ...
