Validroid is a cloud certification service that provides privacy leaks analysis for mobile apps and makes the results available for smartphone users, app stores, apps management providers, and wireless operators.
One of four mobile apps snitches your private data such as contacts, account details, etc. Some of them are playing a fair game, others not. The top 10 mobile security apps track less than 15% of unsolicited data leaks. How can one know which apps are safe?
We compare the stated goals with the actual behavior in myriad of apps and provide our analysis results to end-users, app stores, mobile apps management providers, and wireless operators through either our own mobile client, or through an easily accessible API.
This information is free, however, good reputation costs money. We sell in-depth analytics and Trusted certificates to app publishers. Trusted apps are promoted as safe alternatives when users browse apps and can also be used in controlled corporate environments.
