It’s a trusted standard for companies that need to protect their brands, businesses and dignity from debilitating cyber attacks, today announced the launch of a security app – UnHack. With the growth of smart-phones, it has become just not a device to make phone calls, but a device which is very personal and tags along with the user everywhere.
Various applications today access personal and professional information on the smart-phone and UnHack will provide users a birds view of the applications that are accessing information within the phone. It does so simply by reversing the permission base that the applications take on your cell phone. In simpler words, it can show you which apps are accessing your SMS, call logs, camera, pictures among others.
Talking about the strategy behind this, Saket Modi, Co-Founder & CEO said, “Cyber-thefts are increasing every day and it has become more important than ever to increase awareness around this. UnHack is an application that will give users completely control of their smartphones. This application will show you other applications that can access your SMS, camera, call logs, pictures and much more. You will be able to see a list of apps can read your text messages and can be analysing them to give you customized ads.”
Further adding, Modi said, “With the rise of internet, people today are more prone to cyber-theft and once it hits, all your personal data is at stake. So it is imperative, that you know what you are using and how secure it is. That is our strategy behind bringing this product to the market and we believe it will generate awareness and help securing people’s information.”
Rising at an alarming rate, the number of cyber crimes in the country may double to 3 lakh in 2015 and could pose serious economic and national security challenges, as per a report from Assocham. Hackers today are using new technologies and new methods to get access to your personal data and this can only be prevented through awareness, knowledge and proper implementation of technology.
