LEO Privacy Guard lets you protect your private information, locks apps and records evidence when unauthorized users attempt to access your device without your permission.

The best thing about LEO Privacy Guard is that it gives you total control over your privacy and files. Want to let other users access Chrome and nothing else without your password? You can do that! Want to hide only certain pictures and videos? You can do that too! You can even pick and choose what files you protect and what files you don’t.

LEO Privacy Guard also features a secure, multi-tabbed private browser, an AppLock that prevents access to specific apps, and tools to recover your phone if it’s stolen.

The most important feature of LEO Privacy Guard is the Break-In Alert. If someone that isn’t you (or is you, if you forget your password!) tries to access your device, the app will take a selfie. The intruder won’t know and you’ll have the evidence you need to prove someone was trying to access your device without your permission.

All in all, LEO Privacy Guard is a decent way to safeguard your privacy and files on your Android device.

Pros

  • Protect Personal Photos and Videos Protect all of your files or just the most important ones from the prying eyes of others.
  • Lock Individual Apps With AppLock no one but you can access your apps, even if they get into your phone.
  • Protect Your Browsing History, Too The built-in private browser protects your internet history.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • PROCESS_OUTGOING_CALLS: Allows an application to see the number being dialed during an outgoing call with the option to redirect the call to a different number or abort the call altogether.
  • READ_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to read the user's call log.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • READ_SMS: Allows an application to read SMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_SMS: Allows an application to receive SMS messages.
  • SEND_SMS: Allows an application to send SMS messages.
  • WRITE_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to write (but not read) the user's call log data.
  • WRITE_CONTACTS: Allows an application to write the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BATTERY_STATS: Allows an application to collect battery statistics
  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • EXPAND_STATUS_BAR: Allows an application to expand or collapse the status bar.
  • GET_PACKAGE_SIZE: Allows an application to find out the space used by any package.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.

  • PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS: Allows an application to collect component usage statistics
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • UNINSTALL_SHORTCUT: This permission is no longer supported.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.

  • android.permission.SYSTEM_OVERLAY_WINDOW
  • android.permission.WRITE_SMS
