Camera Guard™ Android from Protectstar™ makes sure that no hacker or spy can observe you. With just one single click, the camera of your smartphone will be protected entirely and blocked against surveillance applications.

Prevent spying and end unattractive taping
Not only millions of users but also famous company founders and security experts from the FBI tape over the webcam of their devices.

With good reason: Everything and everybody is spied on! We know this since June 2013 when whistle-blower Snowden revealed the first NSA documents. Since then, increasingly threatening details are being constantly uncovered.
But not only hackers found ways to misuse the webcam without a warning signal to the user. Also, modern spyware is dangerous because it specifically targets control of the webcam.

See nothing for those who should not
Camera Guard™ blocks and observes all programs and processes that try to access the webcam of your smartphone. Every attempted security breach will be reported with a signal.

While all accesses and warnings are conveniently protocolled in the log file, the intelligent Deep Detective™ can detect even previously unknown attacks.

Deep Detective™: A smart invention against (un)known threats
With the Deep Detective™, we have created an intelligent and versatile detective that observes all accesses to the Android™ device – similar to a firewall – only smarter.

Deep Detective™ permanently controls which process or app currently attempts to access the camera. Additionally, it reports known – and thanks to modern heuristic methods – also unknown attack attempts.
Every possibility to spy on you is proactively restricted from hackers and spies.

Want your camera disabled? Camera Guard is all you need for blocking the camera against unauthorized access.

With thousands of attack signatures, the optional Deep Detective™ Live spyware scanner detects a variety of fraudulent elements such as HiddenAds, FakeApps, Adware, LeadBolt, Sms-Thief, Rooting, Sms-Fraud, Fake Installer, Exploits, BankBots, Anubis, AgentSmith, SMSReg, FinSpy, Ransomware, LokiBot, Banker, Sms Sender, AirPush, etc.

With this app, you can disable the camera and prevent unauthorized camera access or disable cameras. This is a full-powered camera protect app that allows you to limit camera access or put camera restrictions in place. Reimagine a cameraless camera in this powerful app. Prevent unethical camera access. Want the camera blocked? Let us handle that for you. We protect the camera as no one has ever before.

An ideal combination
Camera Guard™ can, especially with activated Deep Detective™, be used ideally in combination with other existing security solutions.

Besides with our Micro Guard™ - a secure microphone protection app - you have a complete and robust solution against any surveillance.

Features "Free Edition":
+ Anti Spy: New innovative Camera block app
+ Camera protection
+ Camera blocker
+ Deep Detective™ Lite
+ Deep Detective™ Live: Anti-Spyware Scanner (subscription)
+ Your camera app can be added to the whitelist to make photos
+ List of Apps with camera access

Provides access to device usage history and statistics. Usage data is aggregated into time intervals: days, weeks, months, and years.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

In-App billing
In-app Billing on Google Play provides a straightforward, simple interface for sending In-app Billing requests and managing In-app Billing transactions using Google Play.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    No adds, just Prime access functions. truly locks apps from accessing your Camera in, background without your permission, suggest suit of similar apps to control web access to prevent data usage by all background aps. Data loss is costing me over 10 GIG per day this program is a great starter to controling money loss.

    Great security on your phone so that apps and people are not able to look at you. It does block facial recognition that is a convenient way to unlock your phone and it is more difficult to take pictures quickly because you have to deactivate this before it will work. If you're aware of or have ever experienced someone hacking you, then I would recommend this app even if it just gives you a better sense of security. It's happened to me and I am thankful to have this on my phone!

    Camera error. Camera cannot be whitelisted even though the app allows for it. Edit: Hi developer, I restarted my phone twice before writing my review. I use your microphone disable app, but I'm using something else for the camera that works for me now. Thanks for your reply, though.

    Generally, a very robust application, but its Deep Detective paid function doesn't work. You turn it on, but then find out after checking the settings that it is off again. Same is true of the Micro Blocker app by the same author.

    I use both Camera Guard and Micro Guard, and I've had no problems with them. They don't consume much battery despite turning battery optimization and data saving off for them. I'm tired of hearing about all the privacy invasions that go on these days, especially on the smartphone, so these apps mean a lot to me. Personally, I really like a lot of this company's apps, like the Anti Spy app. Thank you.

    Don't know if my device's camera is actually being guarded- no way to tell. How convenient is that? I've also been asked to upgrade from the basic Premium version to add my Android's camera to the whitelist as well as other basics, even though I'm paid up until the 14th of June. That means I'm getting ripped off- again, which is becoming a regular occurrence on the Google Play Store, but they don't seem to be too concerned about that.

    I am pleased with the opportunity to feel the protection by a company that is regarded as highly competent. The desire to end intrusive privacy violations is a very important doctrine and a laudable act. However, it becomes an administrative app with control beyond ability of a prudent customer to possibly know.

    It was an awesome app because it protected me from threats. But one problem I am facing is that I'm not able to access into my phone, means when I enabled this I'm not able to use face recognition and because of that I'm not able to open my phone after installing this app. My phone turns OFF whenever I try to unlock my phone. I was lucky because I added fingerprint. Thankyou for developing such a great app but please fix it. I don't mean that it's worst.

    I am leaving your app on my device except continuing issues that your camera keeps being turned off which I had turned it on repeatily for a week now and I granted your app ALL permissions. Is it that your app is a complete fail or another group controls by department of google strips that control block privilige? Let me and do monitor your app and I give consent fully. Let me know asap what you can do? Thank you

    Thank you for incredible support. After Camera Guard & Micro Guard, I even got your anti spy. (Have reviewed the same). Now, regarding PS apps: I would still buy in digital form in the play store, as I really like the scanning capabilities and the UI. But, pricewise, it justifies the subscription (including the LT subscription), I can get an entire year. And, with the scanning capabilities that are next to none, it seems to actually look BETTER than any other app that I've used. And, of course, there’s also all the capabilities that come with an “active” subscription (like link scanning and such). Plus: I have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE as to where all these other reviewers are getting these problems! They must be using a different app or something! ;) Seriously, though, I’ve actually NEVER had a problem with the app itself, or with the purchasing of issues! Plus, I’ve just been using this since inception, and have never run into a problem. So, this app is ABSOLUTELY AND VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

    I think this app is what made my camera and flashlight stop working a few months ago (after uninstalling [unless hacked and disabled somehow] due to not being able to use flashlight with it on), and no app or phone even has been able to "see/find" them since (keeps saying to turn off anything using either one...but all permissions even have been turned off and still...).

  44. XT1572-avatar



    The app does work for anyone that is thunking it doesent it is a really good app for security, but developer of the app, you shuld make it opensource so you can put it in F-droid amd it will be found by the privacy comunity for even mor people to see it, if you do i will sherr it to them.

After a obstacle course of denying permissions , uninstalling , powering off and on , I was eventually successful . My once in a lifetime photo is gone forever ! John Mann Capt USMC ret.

    I really love this app! So, easy to and understand. Works well with my LGK9 smartphone. Takes up very little memory space. What more can I say? These guys put a lot of effort into their apps that they can be up there with Norton/Symantec and Kaspersky. Good work guys! I do love Norton and Kaspersky but there were things missing that I felt were important for extra protection on your smartphone. ProtectStar fills in those missing protection. And, you have several pricing options. Nice!

Well this is a flat out lie, and this warning is listed for all 300 odd apps installed, even though they are not camera apps! I am not going to pay for Whitelisting to use MY OWN camera. I can simply delete this misleading dishonest app!

    So I really wish that this would have started before I paid for the month subscription to the app. I paid for the deep detective live feature and immediately afterwards the fingerprint scanner kept popping on the screen over and over and over again so much to the point that I had to just keep my finger on my scanner. I'm not sure what that is or why it's happening but the app is uninstalled until I can find out why my phone was doing that. One star until I get some help with this matter.

    You must buy this camera guard app and TWO more app's, Deep Detective and one more for this camera guard to work!!! In a free version you can add only main camera to white list. Front camera doesen't work! That means that you can't normally use your phone if you don't pay them and buy all 3 app's. Uninstalled after 3 minutes.

    I would never support a stolen idea especailly of someones dream. My friend came up with this back in aug of 2019. When they got hacked by a major hacker (group) and known one at that. Their inventions ideas writing n stalked taunted them in the worst of ways. This app and its idea has flaws because it was made by flaws and not completely aware of the whole idea before rushing to make it after it was of anothers making. Truth and facts are out there and soon to the public also.

    I dont understand. I get a notification that it's blocked the camera every time I launch phone, chrome, and sometimes Google play services. Are you guys saying this app is detecting that these other apps are trying to use my camera almost every time I launch them? Are these apps trying to take a quick screenshot or what? These are standard apps on the phone and don't understand why I keep getting these notifications.

  65. Desiree-avatar



    You know? I do not understand why this app's reviews arent higher than they are! I've been using this app for a few years now and it works just as it says it does. Some apps like this one will not pick up "unknown threats", some of the exploits listed on this one, or block apps that already have the camera permissions. This app will block absolutely everything when turned on. I was amazed at first to how almost all my apps were blocked when I would try to open them! LOVE THIS APP!!!!!

    It requires permission to your camera whilst never actually promising your cam isnt hijacked by Bluetooth hackers next door..or anyone for that matter. Don't trust an app that requires permissions youd need to r00t your life with... I dont think any apps other than the OS Provider is responsible for the content they share.. being my first line of defense, they should have been able to know that my value comes from me, and I believe if you post it in public, its still yours until you set a price.

    I got this app as a security measure but I find it keeps turning itself off. I have a Huawei Y6 Pro 2019. It doesn't start up on boot, when I want it disabled it doesn't respond. I even paid for the full version. When it works it's great, but it malfunctions often. The microphone blocker version is much worse.

    Good application , when WhatsApp is using back camera while chatting and all just installed this application and there is no background camera opening in that chats screen loved it




    I have already cancelled my subscription, but there are serious technical issues and faults with this app, or is it that they are so sad to see me go. This app keeps repeating I need to deactivate before leaving. Do not think about using this app or company, because they have designed their software to hang on tight to users.

    This app seems to actually block all camera access from both system and user apps. A surprising feature is the notifications specifying which app attempt to access the camera has been blocked. Most unsettling is how often apps attempts to access the camera without notice or permission. SMH

    Developer doesn't seem to understand their product across the board. I've bought numerous apps from Protect Star trying to be supportive and everytime they update they want for me to repurchase. I strongly suggest you find an alternative to any Protect Star applications.

    Best camera guard I have used. Very worth paying the extra after you try the free version and like it. They also do the same style thing with a microphone guard.

    I was going to give a 'no star rating' because the camara has now become locked and is requiring a password to unlock it for use, which I did not do. And I cannot access the in-apk settings menu.

    Security based which is self-explanatory. Found this setup to be a bit redundant in some features while other's are a "paid upgrade" deflating the feature itself in my opinion.

    believe it or not hackers can access the camera and microphone on your device and listen in on anything they want. This app really that's why I am using it.

    Why does android phone apps access camera & microphone regularly???? I'm glad Camera guard & Microphone guard blocks the attempts of spying & hacking.. Nice & simple Protect Star Inc.. Thank you..

    I hope this works, there is something in my phone activating the camera when the phones not in use and I think I'm being spied on, so hopefully this will prevent it. If not I'm selling my phone, this is my last hope

    Prevented main camera from working even though i had it whitelisted. Cant find camera use log. Should add microphone use also. perhaps detect apps that can acces the screen to prevent screenshots.

    Your App scanner has failed to yield any results when finding spy apps. I know for a fact there are several spy apps on my phone and for the test to not catch one is UNACCEPTABLE. Get better programmers.

    Completely blocks all cameras on my mobile devices. Unable to use any camera unless I turn off this app. Excellent work. Thanks.

    One of the better apps. I love the whitelist this is a must. The privacy policy is very generic about installed app data.

    Can I use at an ATM machine?? ATM "Automatic Teller Machine" You enter a debit card and enter a PIN "Personal Identification Number" and it dispenses the amount of money you request. There are cameras built into the machine and pointed to the user. It records every customer per transaction. It would be pretty nifty if that camera could be easily disabled with an app. If it does this id give it 10 stars and it would be rightfully worth it.

    It forbiddens your phone camera access, like yeah i know it blocks apps that access your camera without letting you know, but it actually blocks you from accessing your camera to take a selfie or sum.
