Anti Spy Mobile Helps Users Check Permissions and Identify Problems

One of the bigger problems with apps on Google Play is how they often ask for many more permissions than necessary—everything from children’s games that for some reason need to read our SMS conversations to Malware wanting to hijack our contacts list, users have been on high alert looking out for rogue applications. This fear has even turned users away from otherwise awesome ideas like Microsoft’s on{X}.

Developed by XDA Forum Member pandata000, Anti Spy Mobile brings users a friendly way of seeing what permissions your apps want, and keeps an eye out for applications that could be malicious. Last June, we saw a similar application, but having more options is always good.

The app features a scan function that looks at your currently installed apps and makes sure that you’re currently spyware free. Not only is it equipped with a set list of known spyware applications, but it also analyses your applications and let the user know if there’s an application that looks suspicious. The feature list includes:

- detects well-known spy apps (Spy Mobile, GravityMobile Spy, Highster Mobile, EasySpy, etc).
- analyzes the permissions and intent events of all installed apps
- app score base on the analysis warns for suspicious apps
- super fast scanner

As spyware and permissions have been the talk of the Google Play Store before, an application like this is definitely something the app downloading aficionado should check out.
