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.

Suggestion Good app though I wish I could lock my location to a custom one. That way if a location app asks for my location it could always be at my uni or in some far away country. Would make trojan owners scratch their heads. :P

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?

McAfee is a rock star willing to stick it to the system that treats us as cattle. It is OUR information.
