Camera Guard™ from ProtectStar™ makes sure that no hacker or spy can observe you. With just one single click the camera, of your smartphone will be wholly protected against Surveillance.

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 have hackers found solutions to misuse the webcam without a warning signal to the user.

See nothing – Complete Camera Protection
With only one click, the protection is activated, and Camera Guard™ blocks all apps and processes that try to access the camera and webcam of your smartphone. Every attempted security breach will be reported.

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

A smart invention against (un)known threats
Deep Detective™ Live: Anti Spyware Scanner

With the Deep Detective™, we have created an intelligent and versatile detective that observes all accesses to the Android™ device – similar to a firewall or an Intrusion Detection System – 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, spies, and Trojans.

With thousands of attack signatures, the optional Deep Detective™ Live spyware scanner offers comprehensive protection against a multitude of hacking attacks. 

For example, Deep Detective™ Live detects a variety of fraudulent elements such as HiddenAds, FakeApps, Adware, LeadBolt, Sms-Thief, Rooting, Sms-Fraud, Fake Installer, Exploits, BankBots, Anubis, AgentSmith, SMSReg, Ransomware, LokiBot, Banker, Sms Sender, AirPush, etc.

Features "Professional Edition":
+ Camera protection
+ Auto-Protection
+ Graphical window about blocked apps
+ List of Apps with camera access
+ Pop-Ups regarding security breaches
+ Logfile protocol
+ Deep Detective™ Pro
+ Deep Detective™ Live: Anti-Spyware Scanner (subscription)
+ Whitelist
+ Protection against known and unknown attack attempts
+ Passcode protection
+ Widget
+ 24/7 Support by e-Mail

    Works well after the last update. However, as I'm also using the Micro Guard pro app, I request you to modify the icons of Camera Guard not only for the widget but also for the taskbar. The reason is that both apps' icons are very similar and it is really difficult to distinguish between them when in a hurry. The only difference among them is that one is black and the other one is blue. I changed from 2 into 1 star because you don't even respond to my request made 3 months ago.

    This app and Micro Guard are both indispensable items on all my devices, 2 of only a dozen I've used for years and and 2 of 5 I've paid for and got more than I expected. I'll admit, it was a little confusing at first but it worked so well and gave me options and conveniences I didn't even know I'd want or need. Now, I'm no expert but these folks obviously are.

    ive used this app for quite some time now and I can honestly say im 100% satisfied with the its results. even though the free version does the job, I upgraded to the pro version soon after downloading and in my opinion, is well worth the few dollars. This is the only app ive ever given a five star rating, simply because it preforms a very valuable service to ensure one aspect of security on my phone!

    I've used ProtectStar INC's applications for years and can honestly say they are a brilliant investment. I own all the PRO apps, but if you're on a budget they even let you use most of it free! Support is fast and always gets things fixed. Refunds if ever needed were always offered NO FUSS. Most low ratings are due to not understanding the setup and are quite unfair as they will help you sort it out painlessly. 10/10

    I like the app mostly, but for what it cost for the full subscription it should far better. Freezes Camera many times a day, many times right after taking a few photos, or a few short video clips. Causing us to miss the best shots, unless Canwra guard is turned completely off or your cell is rebooted. Either way the best shot is missed, due to app failures. When the whole point in paying so much extra for the whole subscription is to be able to use the white list manager, flawed obviously.

    I have bought some programs on but nothing like this one. I wouldn't recommend this one to ANYONE! I have tried for 2 or 3 days and it was worse than the big fish that got away. Listen you deserve this rating after stealing my money. If I could give you zero stars I would. I got ALL of blocker messages but no one can tell how to fix it. I thought that was tech support was supposed to do. People I would RUN while you still can!!!! BTW would I buy your product if im going iPhone tom?

    Update (Nov 2019) white-listed apps get blocked as well WTH! Even the System Camera app that's white-listed is been randomly blocked! Only when I go into the CGP app and back out I then gain access, What a useless app this is, if I have to do this constantly, I've lost all trust or confidence in this app's developer, which makes me very doubtful of the app and it's intended use. ( and NO your suggestion didn't work ProtectStar Inc.)

But i am telling you one thing, i will never touch the smartphone again except the one that has a camera and microphone kill switches, like the one from Purism. That just the way it is.

    Finally! Finally a developer did it right. An app that has an easy, effective UI. An app that actually works(not just a false sense of security). An easy to use Whitelist option. AND a real-time monitor to show what apps are attempting to spy. Most effective is the Mic AND Camera guard together. 5.....freaking.....stars.

    Yes, it said you did reply to my comments,about the main apps on your phone being able to use the camera, you replied in a very nice way. I think this app will certainly protect from apps without camera access. Guess you should really get 5 stars because even with admin access or other permissions, accesabillity, and app usage you can't stop tbe main one's using your camera no more than I can. What I wonder is why do all these Google apps and system apps need to take photos or flm of you. I've watched in detail when Deep Detective comes on and,I have never seen a reason for an app to use camera on me. They know, I'm the phone owner. Even settings, and accessability do it to. Thought you might be able to give some reasons. Bottom line this app is as good as someone will get now. If I had a computer I would love to get the app that permanently disables camera, even though there are drawbacks. I really can't see not giving 5 stars when the app does all that''s in it's power to do. Just wish everyone had a little more say about something that is pretty rediculous, and if peple knew to what extent all this was happenning, and you know what I mean when I say that, the government would have to put a stop to it guick, or riot on the street would be the least of it. It's kind of to much for someone to beleive is really happening. Sorry so much just feel strongly on this, could understand if you were into bad things or an ex con, you know, someone that needed to be watched,which is likely what the government does, but gives these apps an excuse to use these permissions. That' just my guess.

    After using the free version for a few days, I decided to spend a few dollars on the pro version. The features made it money well spent. One of the things I worry about is malware that could activate my cameras and secretly record. This app goes a long way in alleviating that concern. Logging, real-time monitoring, and whitelisting make this a great solution to an ever-increasing problem!
