About this app

Access Dot enables you to find out if any app is using your phone's camera or microphone without your knowledge just like iOS14 but with several more style options!


Simple. If at any time, the currently open tries to access your phone's camera or microphone, Access Dot will show an overlay informing you whether camera or microphone, or both are being accessed.

What's more, instead of plain "dots" shown by access dots on iOS14, you get to choose your own style of Access Dot, with options of different styles of alerts such as Dots, Bar or Pill shaped alerts. You can even further customize the color, size and position of the alerts on your screen, resulting in total of up to 432 unique possible styles!

Trust an app by all your heart?

Access Dot also lets you add exempted apps, indicating the apps for which you do not want any alerts. Easily manage these apps with one tap (this feature is experimental & might not work reliably always on all devices).

This app requires Accessibility Service to detect and show alerts like iOS14. Without this, the app won't work. So make sure that you enable Access Dot's accessibility service.

Why this app over others?
While other apps do exist, they provide just one option, which is the one like in iOS14. But since Android's beauty is in the options and customization, Access Dot leads the way by giving you quite many options and more features than other apps that try to imitate this behavior of iOS14

Also we do not collect any personal information, and will never ever (we also focus on user privacy just like iOS14 does). You can read more in our Privacy Policy.

For any other queries feel free to send us a mail via Feedback section inside the app.

There are many things to like about this app. I enjoy its design and its ease of use, plus knowing when camera and microphone access is granted is invaluable. However, I am in Android 10 and getting what it seems to be a lot of possible false positives. In the history, I see Access Dot itself despite it not having requested mic/camera access. Similarly, the Amazon app and Authenticator app are getting possible false positives.

This app bugs standard UI elements of Android or 3rd party apps like Netflix. If it is installed, timeout of UI elements increase by ten fold. For example Volume Control UI of Android has 2 seconds max timeout but if you install this app it becomes like 30 seconds, or if you have Netflix, video player controls does not even disappear for minutes.

So far, so fine, but there are a couple things that could be done better: (a) People like customisation, so it should be possible to specify different shapes (round, square, diagonal \ /, triangular), sizes and positions for the lights. (b) Instead of flat coloured dots, make them look like LEDs that are either turned off or lit. (c) It should be possible to choose any colour that matches one's taste or theme. (d) Optional LEDs for location, Internet, Bluetooth, contacts or other personal data.

Possibly not all, but definitely some points will be implemented soon. Stay tuned for more updates! 💜
