I like this app. There is one major issue. A scan revealed that I am vulnerable because I have enabled installation from unknown sources. The option to change that setting is given, but the apps listed are checked as "not allowed." Perplexing! The app with this unauthorized special permission is never identified, which makes a change impossible. I even added the specific app to the ignore list in hopes of identification. This was ineffective. Frustration runs amok. Please advise.

Years ago i used this app, the pro version, and it did identify a back- door andro rat. At the time i was very impressed. Its reassuring to me the way the permissions are done with this app. Its trustworthy. It notifies but then restart the scan, potentially losing info. And to have to reinstall after update, or to regularly re-install at all is certainly, a drawback. I like the app I am just curious how current the app is with all its services.

Privacy scanner pro hasn't caught anything yet. It's just a gut feeling. I get weird bursts of notice chimes without new notice message. I just might be paranoid but the app hangs for about 30 seconds at about 99% with a message/notice telling me 'The scanner is still scanning. Please wait until the scan has been completed' at least 4 times. i also keep getting 'Privacy Scanner Pro stop working' notices. Ever since that 50,000,000 FB accounts were hacked.
