You might still use WhatsApp instead of Threema – hey nobody is perfect right?

The Author of NetGuard and Xprivacy gave us new hope, he announced a comeback on XDA because permissions are still been abused. He made a point because there only a handful of applications which really take care of this, most of such apps requires root access and frameworks like Xposed.

Love him or hate him, Snowden likely knows a thing or two about securing your data. I will be interested to hear feedback about the Haven app. But first let me share what I got while testing it.
Haven is for people who need a way to protect their personal spaces and possessions without compromising their own privacy that’s what they want us make to believe. It is an Android application that leverages on-device sensors to provide monitoring and protection of physical spaces. Haven turns any Android phone into a motion, sound, vibration and light detector, watching for unexpected guests and unwanted intruders. We designed Haven for investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and people at risk of forced disappearance to create a new kind of herd immunity. By combining the array of sensors found in any smartphone, with the world’s most secure communications technologies, like Signal and Tor, Haven prevents the worst kind of people from silencing citizens without getting caught in the act.
