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.
