After listening to the Snowden interviews on how the NSA does not limit its data collection to just national security issues, a good friend of mine, Lou Franco (Programmer of D-Vasive) spoke with me about developing an Android application that notifies you when any 3rd party malicious applications are running on your phone, that try to open the phone’s Camera or Microphone. This was around the time when I was being laid off as a developer for a marketing firm in Boca Raton, Florida, so it was perfect timing for me to go ALL IN on D-Vasive.
That is when I thought of expanding the notifications to include the Bluetooth and WiFi.
I also thought of not only notifications, but actually allowing the user to lock each device (Camera, Mic, Bluetooth, WiFi) individually, or all simultaneously.
I also thought of the User Interface that would reflect security, hence the combo lock.
I then came up with the new user interface in the latest version to increase usability.
I came up with the idea to have a free version with limited functionality to increase overall userbase.
I thought of the P.C. Version to increase platform availability.
