Recently, users have been complaining that after a phone conversation on a certain topic, they see targeted ads for what they were talking about. For example, if you were discussing pets, you could easily get ads for dog food or a veterinary clinic. So an anti-tapping app will come in handy for everyone!
Camera Blocker blocks your camera from spyware and viruses. Statistics show that every second app requests access to your camera, creating a vulnerability to transmit photo and video data to the web. The program blocks any attempts of unauthorized access to the camera. Camera Blocker itself does not require such permission.
Avast Mobile Security
Avast is one of the most popular free antiviruses for Android. It will notify you of spyware and adware installations that threaten the security of your data. Antivirus detects malware with 99.9% detection rate.

AppLock is a gateway app that locks out sensitive information. You will be able to lock your social networks, photos, messages or mail to another user.
The program will allow you to set up profiles with different levels of access on your phone. So, a guest will only be able to call, but not open your photo gallery. The gateway can be locked with a password, a graphic key, or a fingerprint.
It's no secret that many Android apps waste mobile traffic.
With the NoRoot Firewall app, you can control the apps' access to the web. You can, for example, allow selected applications to access the Internet only via wifi, only via mobile Internet or completely prohibit it.
