Top Android Privacy & Security Apps

Having your computer or laptop secured is one of the most basic and easiest steps for all of us. We always check if we have an antivirus, and we run scans from time to time (probably less than we should). But do we apply the same amount of scrutiny for our phones? So, today, we’ll look at apps to help keep you safe and private on your Android phone.

Top Android Privacy & Security Apps

Signal Private Messenger

This app is great for making private, secure calls and sending text messages for free. It is very easy to use and provides end-to-end encryption. This means that no one will be able to listen to your phone calls.

It has no complicated set up and their servers have no access to any of your communication, nor does it store any of your data.

360 Security

From developer Qihu, this app is great for detecting and neutralizing any malicious threats to your phone’s system. It is easy to use, boosts your phone, and even better, elegant and smooth to look at.

It also doesn’t come with too many features, as the lightweight (but still powerful) version is absolutely free. It promises to help protect you against malware, spyware, and other forms of threats against your system’s security.

AppLock

This app is used to protect all your personal files and data—by specific preference (not all files at once). This is different from the phone’s app lock, as that will just put a lock on the phone in general. This app lets you choose which apps to put a lock on, including your SMS, Messenger, Facebook, Calls, or anything else. That way, you don’t need to worry about a friend or family member getting into your personal files.

NordVPN

NordVPN’s Android version is an intuitive, effective software that offers one of the strongest VPN security solutions in the market. The app protects your data with powerful encryption protocols and offers a range of extra features.
