Micro Guard™ Android ProtectStar™ makes sure that no hacker or spy can listen on you. With just one single click, the integrated microphone of your Android™ device will be completely protected.

Prevent spying
Not only millions of users, but also former FBI-chief tape over the webcam and microphones 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 integrated microphones of mobile devices without a warning signal to the user: Also, spyware is highly dangerous because it specifically targets control of the built-in microphone to listen to the users.

Hear nothing – For those who should not
With only one click, the protection is activated, and Micro Guard™ blocks and observes all programs and processes that try to access the microphone of your smartphone. Every attempted security breach will be reported with a signal.

While all accesses and warnings are protocolled in the log file, the intelligent Deep Detective™ detects 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 microphone. 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. Checks microphone permission, protect microphone, restricts backdoor surveillance makes this a must-have spyware detector with incredible detector features. 

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.

Block microphone, protect recording, disable the microphone, and defend yourself against microphone misuse. One of the top-rated microphone apps around that can disable the microphone for unwanted surveillance. Disable mic and do much more with this microphone application.

An ideal combination
Micro Guard™ can, especially with activated Deep Detective™, be used ideally in combination with other existing security solutions. And it works perfectly together with Camera Guard™ that protects the integrated camera of your device. The microphone blocker that you can trust.

Features "Free Edition":
+ Microphone protection
+ Microphone blocker
+ Deep Detective™ Lite
+ Deep Detective™ Live: Anti-Spyware Scanner (subscription)>
+ List of all Apps with microphone access

    Excellent. 2 stars off is not for blocker. Instructions stil seem vague. Other words preferred to illustrate "white list", or review by asking current paid users. Green lock. Does it mean green is locked and safe, what is green lock and white listed app suppose to mean ? To my perception it give false neg and false pos illustration. Black list is no camera access. White list is app does not and cannot send pic or sound files Get the idea ?

    Sometimes it malfunctions. I set it to protection mode, opened the voice recorder, yet the recorder worked. After restarting, it worked again which means any unauthorised attempt might not be detected at all. :(

    Found a bug: Bought Full version. Noticed a bug, that this app somehow affects(blocks) notifier and text speaker, so tht you dont hear it, even with full volume and every sound channel on. I thought it's supposed to block only microphone? 🤔 hmmm... How did I notice tht: I set an alarm and text speaker, when it pop ups, unfortunately I don't hear an alarm sound and text speach. 03.10.2020: new widget kinda fat.

    @Protectstar Inc.- UPDATE: Last review 2 long, had to delete 2 update! To answer your question, of course I whitelisted the phone app and other apps pertaining 2 calls. That is the very first thing i did after DL your app! I actually bought a subscription to each app you have on P.S to give them a truly Fair Review. I support Devs looking 2 make a good app that will help the every day Average Joe. This app does add extra security where it is most needed! Prob-Where did Smart Divergent come From

    Great app but heres the thing: if i call someone, my mic is blocked. But when someone calls me and i answer, they can hear me. It shouldnt be like this, pls fix. If i blocked my mic, then it should be blocked whether i call others or others call me.

    So far I haven't seen any evidence that this app works. It will cut of my sound after a few seconds in messenger and snapchat. But if I repeat the word "Car" For a few minutes while on Facebook, then I will be shown ads for cars within 10 minutes. I think this app is a scam. And I wanr my money back!

    The blocker is constantly being turned off, and not by me. It doesn't seem to recognize being turned off by a 3rd party like it claims to, which makes me feel like it's not recognizing that other apps are listening on me. 10/10 epic fail in my book. If I could rate this 0 stars, I would.

    Edit 30: th Had a minor glitch on landscape mode, but thanks for fixing it. Works like a charm. :🤺 Its free, quick at job and works well for me. I wish you opened the source code. I had a call recorder app that was listening to me and it did identify it. 🙄 May 21 Top notch work when it comes to UI. Simple, works and that's what I like.

    It would block the mic from me too. It said I could block the mic myself. SO what did I need the app for. It couldn't tell the difference between me and an intruder. It is no good to me. Sadly, I uninstalled it. LA

    Although it's an app with lots of good functions, there are still bugs. First of all, it interferes with the alarm clock application, causing the alarm to sound only a few seconds, instead of sounding until snoozed, or dismissed. Second of all, boot protection startup of the application does not disable microphone for "ok GOOGLE" function. If you turn the Mic Blocker off and turn it back on, it does prevent "Ok GOOGLE" from listening to the microphone.

    The app works fine for me. Micro Guard is constantly blocking unauthorized attempts to use the microphone and notifying me of them, and because the battery barely drains despite turning battery optimization and data saver off for it, I'm pretty happy with it. I have Camera Guard and Anti Spy and a Traditional Antivirus in the background, so personally, I'm feeling okay. It doesn't interfere whenever I actually make or have a phone call, so that's good that the app works conveniently too. Thanks.

    5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐app, only thing I wish could happen is when you look at the microphone events would be to tell you which app/program attempted to or actually opened either the microphone, It only tells u that it was opened and closed and at what times,which is good,but it would be nice if this grant us one tap turn off, "Exceptional! It does so much!👍✌️+ Program to whitelist for use or + them disable again after time interval."Overall" it works for me.since 1 year, this app been very useful to me. Thnks

    When I tried to send WhatsApp voice message, when it was on, the voice note was silent (empty), but when I tried to make a whatsapp call, the other party heard me normally!! Shouldn't it shutdown all microphone for all apps?

    Great app to be sure you're not being listened to by someone who is hacking you or anything that gathers what you say as data for their products or services. When I discovered the possibilities that most people aren't even aware of, I was thankful to find a way to protect myself. It's happened to me personally and no one is immune to having it happen to them, so I definitely recommend this app!

    Outstanding app!I love that you can talk to a live customer service representative 24/7 . I called at 11:00 pm the other night just to ask a general question.. and he was very nice and tentative to my needs. As of right now I’ll stay with Microphone Blocker!! Happy to use it :)

    It is scanning properly but my alarm application sound is not working even that I've purchased the unlimited version of the app and I've added my "Clock" alarm application to the whitelist!

  23. Hercules-avatar



    It's a good app but don't like the idea of this app requiring the microphone permission to be switched on constantly for the app to work. Why?. The whole reason for buying this app was to block everything. I wanted the microphone permanently be off. I feel unhappy about this situation.

    Using for more than 1 month, this app is very useful to me, but i have issue with password reset process, but overall real time very good quality app and tell u which app is trying to use your microphone it's crazy i would have never known without Microphone guard app. very useful and user- friendly

    I used this app on my note 9 and it worked, would even let me know what app attempted to access mic. DOES NOT WORK WITH LG V60 App shows on as if mic is being blocked although declvice info test shows the mic is not muted. Unfortune as i trusted this app because it worked on Samsung but i don't know If it is a compatibility problem or LG is blocking app.

    It caused the video recording feature on my phone to stop working and didn't really do anything except send me a notification that even Microphone Blocker itself was trying to access my microphone at 1:30am. Bizarre app. Once I uninstalled it, I was able to record video again.

    I was using the free version of this app and it seemed quite useful, so I thought I would upgrade and try the full version. However, the app simply doesn't work. I turn the protection on manually and it is fine. This can be tested by using the voice recorder on my device which doesn't record at this point. Unfortunately as soon as I make or receive a phone call it stops working. The app still shows as being protected, but I can use apps to record and save sound. Disappointing waste of money.

    Googles decision to place its formidable abilities in the favor of the consumers protection from the unscrupulous makes this installation and its in app purchase a wise choice.However, as the other camera app, one is responsible for the level of intrusions that would not be possible for an average, or for that matter, an above average prudent user. Capable of bypassing battery power saving as the other misguideing sister app. Editorial note, I believe that this app is an example of the power tha

    App says "protected," but the "Now Playing" feature on the lock screen of my phone displaying songs playing in the background - on other devices not connected to my phone - says otherwise. When I open Google Assistant, the mic is activated, but when i close it, open the mic blocker to confirm that it's enabled, then reopen Google Assistant, only now do i get a notification that the mic is disabled. Finicky and not reliable.

    This app performs just as it says. I have only one issue, the widget does not work. I can find no setting or claim that it should act as a button to toggle protection, but the camera guard this developer produced has a widget that does just that and looks nearly identical. I find it very convenient with this feature and would like the microguard to act the same way. Is this intended?

    This app stops me leaving voice messages on whatsapp even though it is whitelisted. I have to turn protection off which kinda defeats the whole object. Support is non existent. I have emailed them 3 times and have never received a response. They are happy to take your money but it all ends there. My recommendation.....buy another product!

    This seems to be a very valuable application; however, only 4 stars as i was just on the phone to my interenet provider when i noted that my mike was turned off momentarily. One of those subtle signs this hacker uses to make me aware of their presence. While on hold to the police's non emergency line i noted that attmpts to activate my mic were averted. Im on a Blackberry Priv...that has been hacked.

    Scans fast and thorough identifying apps and/or 3rd party website listeners like pinterest which isn't a threat but still is identified. FB Messanger Lite which can be listened on with out your knowledge. This app blocks their ability to ease drop. Even Google without an in-app purchase needed to do so.

    Camera Guard works on the camera, but Micro Guard does not work so well on the microphone. Any app is able to hijack the mic from Micro Guard and use it. Frequently I even find Micro Guard has shut down without notice, leaving me to wonder how long I was unprotected. I never have such troubles with Camera Guard.

    What's with all the fake reviews? This app seems to work possibly? It's hard to tell but a couple of times I was satisfied. But you can see when it doesn't work. It blocks audio when it shouldn't at least some of the time. Like with Facebook messenger the people I call get no audio sometimes. More time will be needed to see, but looking through the reviews has made me skeptical. And I'm considering deleting this app in the future.

    I am using the camera blocker app and it works pretty good. I love the design of both apps, the whitelist and features that they offer. I purchased the microphone blocker too. I tested this app with 3 messengers. On telegram I sent a voice message and the audio wasn't recorded. Then I tried a Skype test call and voice chat on discord. The microphone was unblocked for both services and skype played back the recorded audio of the call. Is it supposed to unblock during calls?

    It looks like the app is not working properly. I have contacted the developer or number of ocassions and whilst I was able to get a prompt reply regarding other issues they are ignoring my query regarding rhe fact I am concerned the mic is not being blocked. I get a notification when some app is opened to say the mic has been blocked. However, when I use the mic (such as whatsapp call or taking a video with the camera) the sound is recorded. Seems to make the phone laggy too.

    Scam App - beware - we download this app for safety and security the turn the microphone off so we are not spied upon. microgard requires then order to use as half they can turn on your microphone and record you. this sounds like a spy app one for your own safety and security I would look for another app.

    This app doesn't have an effect if you already have an app, like Facebook or Viber, with an Microphone premission alowed. Now, I had this app's function enabled, and someone called me on FB Messenger for which I had to switch on mic premission for. The second I did, that person was able to hear me, which rendered this app useless.

    Not only does it have invasive, unexplained permissions regarding what specific access the P S server has, but the microphone protection is non- persistant after restart. Also Google permissions of any kind=crime. Finally, greedy purchase requirements for features of an app that is not thoroughly convincing to protect against P S itself, is quite OVER REACHING, LIKE UNLAWFULL PATRIOT ACT OF THE U.S. GOV= TREASON=DEATH BY HANGING. STACK OF ANTICHRIST JEWS/CATHOLIC=SUPREME COURT DISCRIMINATION.

    There is no way to test key features of this app the ensure these features properly function. For example, white listing an app might not allow the app to properly function during its use of the microphone.

    The white list is an essential feature but you need to pay to get it, so useless without. Surely it will block all mic access from all apps otherwise. I think you have to disable when mic is needed from pulldown menu.

    This app is a spy tool and when you try to remove it, it won't let you do it and when you try to deactivated with administrator previliage, the same thing happens, it won't let you. Please report to google to remove this app from google store.

    The first thing I always do when upgrading to a new device is get mic blocker. It has been a constant savior. Btw. Thanks for the recent update and helping me with my nexus bug. :)

    Be-Aware! The only thing this 'spy' does is open my mic every 1-2 hours. I still use my blackberry priv and its stock, "DTek", app monitorng software has the log files as proof. It makes all their products suspect... damn. I bought this damn thing before i thought to engage DTek.....

    Mic Guard will not stay on always turns off. I am on an older Samsung Galaxy 5. I will definitely not be buying the paid version. I have both of the Anti Spie and Camera Guard both work well. It is just that this Mic Guard dose not

    I don't think it's working. Randomly "Ok Google" listens in and chimes on my conversation. Then when I try to get it to respond it works. Something is bypassing your app.

    works great a d tells u what apps are trying to access the microphone and u can then go back in your app settings and change the permissions...I recommend the camera app by the same company its amazing

    When I say hey Google when my phone is off (sleeping) It still pops up even when mic grard this is turned on. But when the screen is on Google says it can't use the mic when another app is using it.

    it does not blocks the microphone , while this aop is on you can voice translate and give dictation from other apps , it wrongly assures you that you are protected while infact its not true , infact you are not protected betrayed my trust , uninstalling this aop.
