Freedom through Awareness: Control your privacy, know your Apps.


DCentral1, by John McAfee, is a free to download application for Android mobile phone, tablets and devices. It aims to protect devices by empowering the user to be more fully aware of certain permissions that installed applications have been granted on the device, knowingly or not.


The application scores each potentially revealing or privacy-threatening permission granted to applications, and gives a tabulated score for each user installed application on the device. DCentral1 also has a pro-active feature, where users can indicate specific permissions to be warned and alerted to, when any newly installed applications are added to the device. Applications may be marked as trusted, or easily un-installed from within DCentral1.


Proactive personal security and privacy technology from Future Tense Secure Systems, Inc.

Recent changes:
- Fixed some crashes on older versions of Android.
- Removed the online help text request (thus eliminated 2 of the permissions DCentral1 required).
- Edited the name and description of some permissions.

Can't scroll permissions screen Samsung S6: can't scroll down screen on permissions screen making this app unusable.

Great app Great to know exactly what permissions apps are requesting rights to. You would be suprised how often google play updates itself without you even knowing, even when you set updates to manual and wifi only..

Good Hi McAfee. Big fan here. But your app needs a permanent trust button.

Great idea... However, after scanning it shows 4 apps. There are way more than 4 apps on my phone, many of which I am concerned about, HTC bloatware seems to need lots of permissions but aren't picked up by the app? There are also some functionality issues, the list of permissions per app isn't scrollable so I can only see the top 2.5
