Since the advent of information age corporations, hackers and governments have been trying to breach your privacy to gain data, steal information or keep you in control. With the arrival of smart phones this act of privacy breach has become a child’s play. Nowadays, even a twelve-year-old hacker is equipped with enough power to breach the android phone’s security and open the phone’s camera and record your private actions from a remote location.
We are trying to solve the very same problem of security breach by introducing CamShield, your very own camera privacy tool. CamShield would notify you whenever your camera hardware is accessed by a software. This provides you with an easy to understand visual representation of your cameras’ status.
By using CamShield you can always be aware of when your phone is watching you.
There have been rumors that large organizations both private and government owned have been developing malwares that are embedded in harmless apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp Messenger, Snapchat, Camera360, google+, beauty plus, candy cam, b612 or any other such app. The user gives permission thinking that the app is completely safe, but in reality, the malware would record all activities while running in the background. Intelligence agencies such as the NSA, CIA, R&AW, KGB, MI5 and many others have often been accused of hacking people’s devices in order to peek into their privacy. Doing all this in the name of national security and ethical hacking.
Camshield’s highly battery optimized service helps you stay secure in a situation when your privacy is at risk. If an app tries to record your actions from the background CamShield will notify you almost instantly.
Stay Aware. Stay Safe.
CamShield is compatible with most Android phones and systems, including but not limited to all devices from OnePlus, Samsung, Xiaomi, Sony, Moto, LG, TCL, HTC, Nexus, ZTE and more….
