Between trojans and malware, traffic monitoring at work, and the man, everyone is trying to see what you’re doing pretty much all the time. There are applications available for desktop operating systems that make snooping less of a problem such as Tor, which allows users to browse the web with complete anonymity. On Android, there are applications available that provide similar protection such as the applications developed via the GuardianProject.

Started with the singular goal of increasing privacy and protection, the GuardianProject has developed a variety of applications that help make your day-to-day mobile device usage safer. Additionally, there are a number of applications that the GuardianProject supports, such as the K-9 email application that allows for email encryption.

Now, it is possible to install the entire suite of GuardianProject applications using a ClockworkMod flashable zip. Posted by XDA Senior Member x942, the flashable zip contains about a dozen applications that will help guard your privacy. The included apps are:
