DUBLIN, IRELAND, Oct. 28, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Liquidum Limited's The Cleaner, a popular Android utility application which helps users clean their phone storage, speed up their phones, and prune their conversation records, is ready to help users protect their privacy from malicious apps with its Smart App Manager feature. Recent media coverage has drawn consumers' attention to the problem of overly broad app permissions and malicious apps.
Malicious apps appear to be harmless games or utility apps, but they can send premium SMS to charge users money, send malicious links to contacts, or even steal information that could be used to commit identity theft. Malicious apps for Android can even be found in reputable sources like the Google Play store. These apps ask for permissions unrelated to the app's purported function (such as a calculator app that asks for permission to make phone calls or access your contacts). But even legitimate apps often ask for excessive permissions and don't inform users how these permissions will be used or what data are being collected. Many casual users aren't aware of how to review which permissions an app has been granted.
The Cleaner's Smart App Manager feature offers Android users a simple, easy-to-use way to find and uninstall apps with overly broad permissions. The Cleaner's intuitive interface and sleek package set it apart from other similar apps, which are overly technical and resource-heavy, encouraging even casual users to clean their phone more often. Smart App Manager lets users sort their apps by permissions, allowing users to uninstall any apps that ask for excessive or seemingly unnecessary permissions.
The Cleaner App has been released on the Google Play store. The latest version can be downloaded here: http://goo.gl/16F1yl
