We live in a time of smartphones, smartwatches and all kinds of other technology very few people seen coming so fast. Now, considering that we use our smart devices for all kinds of private stuff these days, including money transfers, security should be our number one priority. Many tech companies are doing their best to offer us various ways to protect our data, and we’ve seen various security methods included on smartphones, including software protection, such as PINs and patterns, and hardware protection in a form of fingerprint and retina scanners.
That being said, there are a number of security apps currently available in the Google Play Store, and some of those apps are quite useful, like the ‘Third Eye’ app we’ll talk about today. This is a security app, and its purpose is quite simple, to let you know who tried to access your device while you were not looking. If you have a nosy girlfriend, or a sibling perhaps, this is a perfect app for you. Every time a person tries to access your device and enters the wrong PIN, pattern or password, the Third Eye app will take a screenshot of the intruder, and once you unlock your device with the right code, it will share that image with you in a form of a notification.
This app is rather basic as far as features go, but the developer did include some additional options. For example, you choose whether you want the device to take a picture of your intruder after 1 wrong unlock attempt, or more of them, while you also have the ‘photo log’ section within the app which stores such images. The app will also tell you when was the last time someone tried to access your phone, which is a must have feature in such an app. Ads are a part of this app, though you can remove them for less than $1. The Third Eye app currently holds a 4.4-star rating in the Google Play Store, and people seem to like it in general, so if you’re looking for such a security app, Third Eye might be worth checking out.
