It’s true what they say, you won’t really care about hacking unless you yourself (or people really close to you) have been hacked. But you have to understand that this is such a common occurrence that protecting our online properties should be second nature to us. Sometimes though, you don’t know that you’ve been hacked or that someone is trying to hack you until it’s too late. A new app called LogDog not only protects you online but also serves as a hacking watchdog with an early warning system.
The technical term is that LogDog is a mobile Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that aims to protect your online properties like Gmail, Yahoo mail, Dropbox, Evernote, or those that are most likely to be hacked. Anytime there is some suspicious activity going on in any of these accounts, it will send you an alarm that someone may be trying to access your information and that someone is not you.
What it does is constantly scan and monitor things like your log-in location and times, as well as the number of messages and other parameters that might indicate a deviation from your usual, normal activity. It then alerts you when it detects that there are unusual activities in your account, like repeated entry of passwords which might indicate identity theft, so you can go ahead and stop the hack.
For now, LogDog only works with Facebook, Dropbox, Gmail, Evernote, and Yahoo Mail, but they are already working on adding more in their next update. You can download LogDog for free from the Google Play Store.
