7 apps that will make your phone safer (not antivirus)


When you search Google for the term "security apps", you'll get a very comprehensive list of antivirus and anti-malware apps. Unfortunately, this is a very narrow view of what's in Google Play itself. There are many applications that can increase your security without being within antivirus. Most of them are fairly easy to use and do not consume a lot of device features. Here are some apps that help keep your system protected.

1. Bouncer

Bouncer is one of the latest security applications. His main task is to manage your permissions. Bouncer is a "manager" for permissions. You can, for example, activate FACEBOOK's GPS for a specific time only and not all the time. On-time, the permission will be removed automatically. This way, you can use apps more freely, without worrying about entering settings at all times you don't want to see your site. It's priced at $3.59, but it's worth it. In addition to avoiding eavesdropping, Bouncer can also specify any other permissions, such as an app that can access the camera, and so on.

2.Google Find My Device

Finding your Google device was used to be the "Android Device Manager." The name has been changed, but the app still does the same, which is tracking the location of your smartphone. Turn on a ringtone in the phone to make it easier to find it in your home. You can also reset your device, view a message, and lock your phone remotely. We highlight the data reset tool. This keeps your device safe even if it can't recover photos and videos (so it's always best to use Google Photos). This is completely free, without in-app ads or purchases.

3. GlassWire: Data Usage Monitor

GlassWire is one of the latest security apps. Allows you to see apps that consume your data. You can get a real-time graph showing how much data your apps consume. In addition, you will receive alerts to notify you when any app consumes excessive data. This is a great way to control your apps. More than that, you can see any strange activity that may occur in the background. Its primary use is to ensure that you do not reach the limit in the consumption of contact data.

4. Haven  

Haven is also a modern security application, both of which are in beta. Allows you to turn on a second device in a security device. It works by alerting you when the safety device is "disturbed." For example, if you leave your smartphone for safety in your luggage and someone carries your bag, the app will warn you. It can also record sounds and detect changes in light (for example, someone has opened your luggage). The app is completely free, at least in this demo version. Since it is not yet a final version, there may be errors.

5. LastPass Password Manager 

LastPass is one of the best password management apps. Allows you to store passwords for websites, PIN numbers and other confidential information for quick retrieval. Everything is hidden behind a master password of your choice. It's safer than just putting this information anywhere else. The free version offers most of the features. The professional version adds some features, some sync options, and some other things. But using the free version, it is already possible to protect your passwords.

6. Resilio Sync 

Resilio Sync lets you create your own cloud storage space. It converts your daily computer into a cloud storage server. The app helps you sync files between your computer and your phone. Think of it as Google Drive or Dropbox, but otherwise. This is great for sensitive data. It is also great for those who do not trust cloud storage. The app is easy to use even for beginners. It is also completely free. It is one of the most understated security applications.

7. Signal Private Messenger

 Signal Private Messenger is just an alternative to WhatsApp and SMS. But it is more protected and respectful of your privacy. It is safer than other messaging applications so that it comes with a high-security feature such as advanced encryption for messages, phone calls, and SMS. In fact, he became famous after being used by Edward Snowden.
