About this app

Most applications use your camera when needed but some apps might try to access it in the background or foreground without your consent.
Wisom is a really simple tool that notify you with green and orange indicators when apps use Microphone or Camera.

To use Wisom, you need to grant USAGE_STATS permission by clicking the Start button at the app main page and grant the access (or go to Settings and search for Usage data access).
For the access dots indicator to work, you need to turn it on in the app setting (you have to allow Wisom to appear on top permission as well)

Features:
- Detect camera/microphone usage
- Show app access history
- Show camera or microphone recording indicator when apps use them
- And some other useful features.

Wisom is inspired by new iOS 14 and Android 12 privacy feature that shows an indicator whenever camera or microphone is accessed.
Wisom is in beta phase!
Wisom means Who is spying on me!

Note: On Android 6, Microphone usage can not be detected due to system limitation.
This application uses these icon packs:
1. Abstract Elements, made by Alfredo Hernandez from www.flaticon.com
2. Shapes, made by Pixel perfect from www.flaticon.com
3. Emotions, made by Vitaly Gorbachev from www.flaticon.com

Lack of customisation. --- Edit 1: I'm missing the feature to resize, reposition and maybe even animate the dots. --- Edit 2: I've seen that, but it's missing some customisation as I've noted above :) --- Edit 3: True, but still it only comes in 3 steps, which doesn't work for me. I'd love to be able to reposition and resize the dots per pixel, and also to move them up and down. --- Edit 4: Alright, awesome! Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Quinten, Thanks for your feedback. I did think about it before but ended up with current limited features. I will let you know when I update it. Thanks.

It works ok for camera but when some app starts using your microphone like sending voice message on WhatsApp is shows that but after stopping the use of microphone the dot doesn't disappear and also the notification still says the same. And when I force stop it and restart it, then it says no app is using ... Also the camera indicator doesn't appear when I open the system camera app (Android 9). Hope these bugs will be fixed in the near future.

Giving the permission to access usage data to Wisom will allow this app to perform the following actions: Collect the data about your interests and behaviour by learning what apps you use and how often you use them Access your carrier-related and language settings, as well as other details These actions might expose your personal data. Grant the permission (Usage access) anyway? Security issue?

Hi Alwin. Wison only uses Usage access permission to find the last app that is using camera or microphone. Wisom does not track anything about your data. Hope this helps. Thanks.
