BitDefender’s Clueful for Android Shows You Privacy Threating Apps

Clueful is a free Android app from BitDefender that scans your device and tells you which apps on your device are threatening your privacy. It checks each installed apps on your device against Bitdefender’s cloud database, calculates your device’s “Privacy Score”, and then informs you as to which apps are sacrificing your privacy.

Importance of Clueful: Though Google has implemented several measures on Play Store to help protect users from malware and there is a clearer way of seeing the permissions of each app you install, you need to exercise more caution, especially when installing free apps, because many free applications attempt to pay for themselves using ads, and those ads can sometimes link to scams.

Security Tip: Stick to installing apps and games from official Android markets such as Google Play. Installing apps and games from eternal sources is not always the best idea. Check the credibility of app and source in that case.
