AntiSpy Mobile detects and removes spyware apps on your cell phone. The software analyzes all applications on your cell phone and even there are no SpyWares found, it gives warnings for applications that has spy-able permissions and can potentially spy on your device.
The Anti Spy Mobile app uses uses two levels of protection – first there’s a list of commercial spyware software – the results from that scan is listed in Spywares section. That method is used from classical AV programs. Even w/o root access, the Android system provides information about all installed packages and the permissions that are granted to each app.
The second level is heuristic analysis which scans for permissions models that are similar to those used by spywares – those results are listed in the “Warnings” section. If any of the legit apps are in the Warnings section, you can mark them as safe – tap on the app and and mark the checkbox that reads “This app is safe”.
There’s no need to manually run a scan on your device every day to ensure that it is clean. The Auto-Scan feature scans your cell phone every day in background, without disturbing the main phone activity. If the scanner finds a spyware or suspicious app, a notification will be raised in the status bar.
You can put the apps that you are familiar with to a SafeApps list and skip them on further scans..
Anti Spy Mobile is optimized to scan super fast, helping you to perform manual scan whenever you want without waiting for ages. An average scan of 100 apps takes about 3 to 4 seconds depending on the speed of your phone..
