TAG | security

It is likely that your Android smartphone is used by your friends, or child or your spouse. You may be tired of setting new passwords to protect apps in your android phone. Now Vidison Applock provides you with a new system of unlocking the android apps.
Vidison Applock is a convenient method to protect your mobile from others. It provides with face recognition. You can use face recognition to protect any applications on your phone such as SMS, Gallery, etc. It is the fast and better way to protect your private applications.

What you have to do is just select the application that is to be protected. Now you have to take a snapshot of your face. Then, your face will be your key. The snapshot you take will help you to unlock the applications that are protected. Camera in the front is the most because it is the main thing. If your phone lacks front facing camera then you will not be able to use this function. Only password verification can be used in that case. Different hardware is present in different devices so the experience of using it may vary.

Unlocking apps with facial recognition sounds interesting but there is one disadvantage. The software can be bypassed by those people around interwebs. It is still not the best software. It is always used as a second choice to protect the apps and contents. You can try this software just for fun. It is on you whether you like or dislike the software and the face recognition to unlock contents and apps in your Android smartphone.

For the past few months, it has been observed that voice calls over the android phones have been the subject of interception and to avoid that Cellcrypt has released an android based application to encrypt voice calls over android phone. According to the company, they decided to build the application after they saw an increase in number of users for Android phones. Cellcrypt already has the voice encryption applications for E-series and N-series of Nokia phones.

Even though it was acclaimed that GSM calls are already encrypted, software tools to break A5/1 stream cipher are easily available in the market and software experts have claimed that they can intrude into the GSM calls within 30 minutes of time which is a dangerous sign for voice calls. Meanwhile, it is also an issue that once the call has been intecepted, it becomes hard to trace the intruder.

Looking at all these aspects, Cellcrypt decided to develop an application and finally did it for android as well. This application is a singular software application which can be downloaded from android market. In order to make an encrypted call, it is necessary for dialer as well as receiver to have this application installed in their respective phones. However, different OS is no issue in this case and they can have Android and Symbian on their phones.

This voice encryption app is a VOIP app which can work on Wi-Fi or operator’s data channel on GPRS, 3G, Satellite or Edge networks to transceiver voice. Application works on public key based cryptography and each device using application generate its own private encryption key.
