About this app

Free your phone from potential spyware and ads! This app detects all annoyances of apps installed on your phone, such as Push Notifications, Desktop icon spam ads and apps with privacy concerns or spyware. It identifies the adware and allows you to then remove the apps that violate your privacy.

- Helps you to get rid of annoying ad notifications and bookmarks on your desktop.
- Become aware of what apps have permissions to access your messages or accounts and could thus invade your privacy, or can use services which could cost you money, and helps you with their removal.

- Concerns such as Push Notifications (both ads and non-ads), putting spam icons on your desktop, and privacy related concerns such as the ability to access your location, contacts, messages or accounts.

- Android Ad Networks; this app tells you which ad networks are embedded in apps, such as Admob, Millennial Media, ChartBoost, TapJoy and many smaller ones. Indicates which ones may have push ads.

Wow!!! I dont review a lot of apps, but this one helped me so much!!! I've been getting pop ups for such a long time and it was so irking and annoying - but I didn't want to factory reset my phone, and then, I stumbled upon this app. As I went through the app's security concerns, I found an app with no name, icon or whatever. When I clicked on it, I saw a bunch of advertising companies and stuff. This app not only showed me where it was, but allowed me to directly access my settings so I could delete it. I am quite happy and pleased to say I haven't had any pop up ads since then. Seriously, great work. I dont know what I would've done without this app.

This app provides a wealth of information about which apps are accessing what data on your phone. It does a very nice job of ranking the level of danger. That being said, I installed this product because I was getting ads displayed immediately after unlocking my phone. It was not able to detect which app was pushing the ad, which is why I gave it only 4 stars. I was able to fix my problem using another app...

It's Fair. *When I click on About, it's a link for an app ad, it's not info about this app, bummer. *I will clear a notification by clicking on the app (which shows 999+) listed in the Notification Statistics. It did clear the 999+ entries. But the when viewing the Statistics list, the app is still listed showing 999+. "This app needs an improved method clearing Notifications.
