Bitdefender has launched the groundbreaking app Clueful for Android, giving device owners a way to monitor suspicious or careless apps that endanger privacy, handle sensitive data carelessly, deliver unwanted spam and access private information.
Bitdefender Clueful for Android provides a free tool to monitor and analyse Android apps to see which ones can use your phone and read your messages without permission, send spam notifications, access your photos, send your passwords unencrypted over the internet, upload your calendar, interrupt your phone calls with audio ads and more.
The revolutionary app offers a comprehensive analysis of app behaviour that is only available from Bitdefender. From the maker of Bitdefender Mobile Security, PC Mag’s ‘Editor’s Choice’ for Android security, Clueful checks your apps against a constantly updated Cloud database to let you know when your privacy is at risk. Clueful also checks each app as soon as you install it, and rates the overall security status of your device with a ‘Privacy Score’ to measure your vulnerability.
“Your smartphone is probably the most personal device you own, containing private messages, sensitive banking information, personal photos and other data that can leave you vulnerable if handled carelessly,” said Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist Catalin Cosoi. “Meanwhile, the world of apps is still like the Wild West – poorly regulated, chaotic and open to exploitation by unsavoury characters. Clueful offers you a solid defence in an often dangerous milieu.”
Bitdefender Clueful for Android is now available on the Google Play store following the official launch at Pepcom’s MobileFocus event in Las Vegas on the opening night of the CTIA 2013.
Clueful is crafted and maintained by developers at Bitdefender, drawing on years of experience on the front line of the fight against malware. Innovation and dedication has won the company top awards, including the #1 spot worldwide in testing by independent analysts of AV-TEST in 2013, the Product of the Year for 2012 by AV-Comparatives, 12 consecutive VB100 awards from Virus Bulletin and more.
