Reviews From google play store

I have had this app for over a year. The continuing issue is that you can turn the mic blocker one. But whether it is half a day or two days later, the blocker is no longer working. If you think that this app is a secure way for privacy, you better not depend on it. It seems to be more of a flawed gimmicky app. At least if you are actually expecting real privacy I would depend on this app.


I set it to block - and hey presto it somehow gets unblocked! My reply to your reply: I don't have so many apps really but my phone is full enough for me not to want even MORE apps. If i download an app called microphone blocker, I'd kind of hope it would be enough to do what the name suggested it did without having to add other apps. Sorry.


It works overall, I purchased the premiun version. The widget usually turns grey even if the app is working in the background blocking the mic, please fix it. I set the app to block the microphone again after 15 minutes and sometimes it doesn't work, same on the camera blocker please fix also this. I gave four stars because aside from this annoying inperfections the app does what it promises.


great idea, but frustrating experience. Constantly receiving calls and the other person cannot hear me. UPDATE: this was user error - one needs to add certain apps to a white list which i didnt notice before. - and now.ibe done that, and.restarted the phone, it still doesnt work


did what it says it should. discovered that in shutting down my microphone, I could no longer say "hey google" and get an answer (duh!). had to pick between stopping my phone from spying on me and being able to ask my phone questions hands free (like asking for a recipe while my hands are covered in food bits!)


I'm sure it works but it's not user friendly. I could not figure out how to block my microphone even when I followed the instructions. They should make a simple button to turn it off and on. Not sure if the feature is paid or not.


Nice app but it's not for me. I want to shut off the internal built-in microphone and use an external microphone through the phone jack. I currently use an external microphone on my Windows PC but not on my Google Android tablet because all microphones will be shut down because of your app. Will be uninstalling. Thanks anyway.


I have a question. I want to block mic in my Bluetooth headset while activating inbuilt mic on phone. is it possible? i want to record voice from inbuilt mic while listening track from bluetooth headset..


great..im having problems with it just turning itself off just whenever it wants. i paid for the extra stuff too. but thinking that i might change back or get a new one..


No sure what is going on here. With the microphone blocked I can still talk on my phone. That doesn't sound right to me. Is it? How do I test that this app works? I have also installed the pro version of the camera blocker. Does that one work?


this is strait up Tom foolery... govt. gets insight of the people wanting to hide something potentially harmful to whoever for whatever. I just noticed more issues with these kinds of block my this and hide my that (Mic, camera, SSID, VPN) VPN proxy apps are even to be careful with. A person made a good point in one review I read, why do I have to grant the app access to record audio and video, just to block the Mic? Shouldn't need access for things the app shouldn't be doing in the first place.


this app regularly unblocks the microphone by itself. i turn the blocker on, some time later i look at my phone and its unblocked. even though this app is useless in blocking the microphone, ut eats up you battery in a blink of an eye. cannot recommend!


Installed app and enabled all the correct setup procedure. kept sending alerts microphone triggered. except app would not tell user what app was trying to activate microphone. so sad. so much time and effort in designing and right all that code for what. junk...


Beware, make sure u test! Rubbish for my droid - tested with Sound Recorder, FAILED! used another app "Block Microphone (Anti Spy) by Skbapps and that WORKED FINE!


This app is great, but there is a HUGE annoyance. Every few minutes while recording video, a noisy notification pops up that tells you the microphone is being used, and it RUINS your video. There is no way to turn this off. I would NOT recommend paying for this app until they decide to fix this. All it needs is a simple option to disable this notification. If they fixed this, it would be worth 5 stars.


It works for apps, but doesn't interfere with phone calls. I'd rather type/text my queries rather than have a third party have access to my voice.


Handy app but uses lots of battery. 20% in 14 hrs. i was hoping it would be like a switch "on and off" but i guess not.


i think this app done really well. let me know what time it was logged but i wish i could have flipped it around 2 the person that was doing it to me. would have been 5 stars then


Works well when it does, but has some bugs that haven't been resolved in the years I've been using it. I use an internet calling app, which I have listed in the mic block's list of approved apps, but it only lets the mic work 50% of the time. I've never been able to figure out what makes it work and what doesn't. When it fails, I have to hang up, turn the mic block off, and call the person back. Also a brand new problem has started just in the past week...app icon says it's off, but it's on.


I got fooled. I get the idea. it's supposed to gain microphone access, and maintain that access, per your settings, preventing other apps from (mis)using the mic. I even paid for this app, only to discover later that no matter the settings, it will eventually (minutes) release the lock on the microphone. For years I've had a camera blocker that always works, but still I have no luck finding the same in a mic blocker.


The "Smart Sense" alert has gotten me into trouble. It's very loud, very noticeable, and it's embarrassing. I've tried to use this app to record meetings. I've put all my Voice Recorder apps on the 'Whitelist' of permissible apps, and the Smart Sense alert still rings loudly. So - I can't record ANY meetings quietly and discreetly; I have to UNINSTALL THE MICROPHONE BLOCKER APP first, just to shut it up. That's a problem. If possible, fix the Whitelist. Either that, or give an option to disable the Smart Sense entirely. Another problem I have on my Android A5: I have to use the 'strong' blocking option if I want this app to work at all, and that really drains the battery. I admit, I'm happy that this option is available... it's the only way the app can function properly. I do like what this app does, when it works... but not the 'Smart Sense' thing. It's very jarring.


Doesn't tell you what app is accessing mic just tells you the mic is being accessed. Tries to sell you Pro version in first 10 seconds of launching the app. Uninstalling and trying something else.


major concern is even though it says it blocked all the apps and allows certain apps it crashes and there still seems to be apps that are blocked showing ne adds about stuff that i talk


Nice app. It tells you who can listen to you and blocks microphone for all of them. When it's on, I check to record my own voice , recorder do not work. when I off it, my voice recorder starts recording. Same is for messenger etc. It's a nice application but I wish there is a safe way of purchasing the pro version ... Because I don't want to share my credit card details on the net. Can you plz give some other option of payment to you?


Pixel 2 XL, settings on strong and still allowing the mic to function. Specifically the "now playing" feature on Android. Noticing some battery drain as well. Uninstalling


seems to block google mic on home screen and maybe blocks other apps just what i hoped. thanks.


I get a notification every 3 seconds from microphone blocker saying that microphone blocker ir using the microphone...


I'm unclear on how effective this app is. It alerts me when the mic is blocked when i try to open the camcorder app, which leads me to believe it is functioning correctly. However, I recently found myself speaking Spanish with a friend and decided quickly to Google something. The first terms input were Chinese, and the Google prediction of the final word was in Spanish. I only ever perform searches in English, so why did Google switch to Spanish for this search unless the app wasn't working?


Motorola Moto Z Play Android 8.0, newest version of app. App will crash if I try to open my app. It happens after every attempt from main screen. If I restart phone and avoid opening app microphone blocker can be turned on and off via shortcut. This is a good app but this NEEDS to be fixed; I have used this for several months but this issue just came EDIT: Updated version from developers (not sure if it is on Play Store yet) fixes this issue, the inability to open the app is gone


This app does not do what it says it does. It only blocks your mic sometimes. There is a constant notification on the top of the screen that will tell you if the mic is blocked or not. I accidently pressed the google speach button while I was sending a text and found out that the mic could hear me and I checked to see if the notification said my mic was blocked and it did. Dissapointed.


wow seems to really work. i highly recommend it. ok in more detail in order to block the mic apps use the record permission to keep the mic busy. other apps i looked at has internet access and records and appears to send the auduo over the internet. i call this unwanted (spying). this app however i dont see that happening. in fact it doesnt have internet permission at all! very pleased


this app does exactly what it says it does 5* I hope it ll last well it looks like the On and Off button it's not showing anymore.. now I'm dropping another star, this app its jammed it cannot actually BLOCK other apps from taking over the Mike!!! when I'm trying to block the lock button it's Not working!!!! now I have to uninstall and reinstall and see what happens update: it seams to get back to normal, somehow it came back on the 1 tap icon and it's not jamming..again I hope it lasts .


Been using FrenzyCoders Camera and Microphone Blocker for well over a year and have had no issues. They respond immediately to questions and the apps just work. In today's world of agressive marketing, hacking and spying you need to protect your privacy. Even if you don't use this app, PLEASE find something to protect yourself!


It definitely works! I tried to make a call on one of my group chat/phone call app and the person couldn't hear me. I will give it a better rating though if they can explain why the app needs permission to my microphone just to block my microphone. How do we know that you're not spying yourself. Edit: They answered my question below satisfactory so I changed my rating.


🔴🔵many many thanks for your replay to my message , now every thing working perfectly and map can not record any thing 😊👍god bless you and thanks alot ❤


I appreciate that it alerts me when the app is off that I can decide whether to activate it based on the information it provides as to how many different sources (listed) could potentially be recording unwarranted audio. I have yet to try the camera blocker, but surmise I will be equally impressed with the level of protection it provides. Many invasive means are at the disposal of those poised to rob one of one's right to privacy, it's good there are measures safeguarding privacy!


Ive used both your mic blocker and camera blocker for yrs and trust them. But camera blocker is nowhere to be found in playstore and havent been there for long time! Luckily I have backedup version or download old versions from apk download sites. There are nothing but inferior imitations of camera blocker in playstore now! And they dont work as well or just plain sucks compared to your camera blocker! The imitator even imitates same app icon but it utterly sucks compared!!! Im wondering why your camera blocker app isnt included in playstore along with updates to oreo like your mic blocker app???


hardly works. have to disable and re-enable 4-5x a week. Moto z Play. works better than other blockers, but never 100%.


why does it need permission to record audio to block my microphone you'd be probably be better off with a white noise machine or by putting it next to an ac unit or running water. That is suspect asf UNINSTALLED. If you want to be bugged by the federal government intstall this app. the NSA loves those of you who actually think this works. Ciao-from a former NSA agent. 5 stars tried during video chat..it works 5 stars. 😂😂😂😂 the NSA is always listening 😎


Blocks microphone as needed, should block apps that monitor sound for ads like Facebook & also perhaps might block if someone is creeping via your phone but never guaranteed, uninstall Facebook or other similar social apps if you don't need it as your the product they sell nothing comes free from those companies. As always read the Privacy Policy of apps.


scare ware - sure, more info - because I had the mic off during an important call your app (by default) interrupted repeatedly to remind me thst it was off, and even tried to scare me into turning it back on, letting me know that I had 96 (apps) possibly spying on me - get out of here with that...you know what you're doing, and it isn't nice.


I read most of the reviews before i downloaded the app..some were good, most were bad. so out of curiosity i downloaded it to check the permissions (before accepting the terms and services)..of corse it says there are no permissions untill you dig a little deeper and the first actual mic permission is RECORD AUDIO..not saying it doesnt work, but if your app has no READ/WRITE permissions how can it record audio? also has *run at start up* permission that clearly says it will slow app and reboot.


Pro version: I am impressed. Whitelist and the widget make for convenient operation. With help from the developer I have compatibility with ACR (recorder app) and confirmed config settings for my phone. Wanted more documentation, but I must echo others when I say these developers are super quick to respond to questions. Great support! Will ammend the rating as events warrant.


This app was a true godsend that I will never go without having as a staple app in my life on my devices that belong to anyone in our home. As a person who has a background that has included experience which involved administrative work for both law enforcement and private investigation I should have and did know better than get trusting and lax on security knowing how many people just need a tad bit of motivation can be camps of spying in for what ever reason they decide is motivation but I won't take it for granted again So I recommend everyone to use this app and require it if used by anyone in my household it is now required. I was very thankful for this app and getting to rest after the madness that made cost losing almost two weeks sleep plus the horrific IT work to secure everything again. You don't think it would happen to you until your in my spot and dealing with a creeper that was able to gain access to lurk in our network like the worst peeping tom of all which came after success in catfishing the naive teenager in our family who thought they could trust their friends.


Version 1.2.1 crashes on opening. Fortunately I've backed up previously working APK so rolled back to previous release. Hopefully it will get fixed soon. UPDATE: Changed rating to 5 stars with the release of version 1.2.2. App is now working properly again. Thanks for the quick fix!


This application quite literally is a 'must-have' for every single person who owns a smartphone. Any people who like to act that they are "too mature for those conspiracies", need only to run realtime diagnostics on their devices. Excellent work to the developer's! *word to the wise, aquire this and similar apps ASAP & keep backups of the apk's, as Aus is already attempting to cut access to the public.


Great app. It's advanced and works for intended use. Also, very quick app support. Note: If you have the free version and select to add any other app to the whitelist, then you need to set the unlock interval in order for it to work for that whitelisted app.


Good app, does what it supose to do, with a clean, frendly interface. i bought it after a few months of free use. there is one thing you could add to it... a search tool in the Microphone access manager for those of us who have many apps installed :) good job


Horrid experience. Thing wont keep microphone locked down.


So far so good! BUT How do we REALLY KNOW that our mics and cams are ALWAYS OFF ?? I read on the internet- People Lie these days. Cant be trusting NoBody any mo'. ('sept Jesus maybe) 5Points if u can PROVE that my mic is Always Off unless I allow it on. (in clear plain english an 10yr old can understand)


If the microphone is blocked how come I can use voice to text? Update: perhaps read my question before you answer it. I can use voice to text when the microphone is supposedly blocked so obviously it's not blocked, so obviously your app isn't working. Do you get me now?


Just paid for this app because it seemed to work well but there is a very unfortunate side effect. The app also blocks some alarms, have no idea why? Oversleeping because the alarm is muted can be very costly. This needs addressing urgently


I am using Redmi Note 3. I started using this app since 2 days. My observation is that the microphone is changing to unblocked on its own after some time after setting it to blocked. Don't know the reason. Is the hacker changing it to unblocked? Not sure.


Way WAY too intrusive, constant notifications and no way to shut them off. Limited and annoying.


I switched off the mike with this app, then i said "OK Google"...and the Google app popped open right away!


App ublocked during phone call to bank. Pushed block it would not block until call was over.


What is point of this app if other apps have access to use microphone to listen in? Where is privacy in that? Your Microphone Blocker is initially supposed to block from unethical intruders - not what you stated on your reply. God Almighty tells me what to say and He does not lie! God says to all internet crooks, stop intruding and stealing information from people, or face His Wrath of Consequences!


I can make the call and receptionist of my phone call can listen my voice clearly even though the call blocker is on and microphone is also blocked. It means the call blocker is not working at all and you are not safe .If annoynemus call will come in background and will be attended annoynemusly ,then this microphone blocker will not work and guard. Whilst before making any call or receving any call I must havd to unblock the microphone otherwise other receptionist remained unable to listen .


Im not going to Rate this app that great yet.. ONLY because.. It told me there was an App trying to "Record." But..... DOESNT SHOW WHICH ONE???? Whats the Point?


its always unblocked when I check it. stupid stuff. probably does the complete opposite of it intended purpose.


It will tell you right when thetes another app that starts listening but if you click on the notification that pops up to tell it doesnt do anything. That feature needs to tell you exactly what app was just using it.


Totally fake app! I can still use microphone on any app while blocking microphone through this app!


after two month program started acting strange. blocking microphone while talking on messengers and calls and unblocking while phone is idle. support just told me that it is strange. do not recommend.


i was surprised when i could make a phone call and it didn't block it. just normal phone call. at beginning of using this app it did work when people call me. but now no more. why is that?


Great app. I downloaded the one also that you have for the camera. However, my phone keeps taking pictures of my screen. I even paid the $1.99, but it continues to take random photos.


Bought this to shoot videos without audio. However, the app seems to block both the microphone and the video on my phone. Therefore, it doesn't do what I wanted it to do.


Why??? All mic apps suck down battery like crazy,, in fact every one ive tried , theyre at the top of the list when i look at my stats, more then system, google , etc..... If you can fix that, I'll pay good!!!! ,


contains specific notifications that can't be disabled in the app; when you have a microphone app in the background (ie discord). I just want to ~be unsafe~ sometimes ok? stop telling me that I'm being ~spied on~. I am an experienced user. let me be naughty. :)


Love the fact it actually does what it says. No excessive or intrusive ads. I will probably purchase the paid version eventually. Good app. Props to the dev(s)


okay so this app works, but to say it can't spy on you using the camera as it can't access internet. I just have one question, why does it need to know when a call is taking place and the device id?


Nothing more to say but it does what I need it to do without jumping through permission hoops and can easily turn on and off . I don't care if I have to do it every time I turn the phone on. Have people become that lazy in the mind they can't remember simple things? I never use a cellular damage phone for phone calls.. just text, and sometimes run a Frequency generator and other audio tools, and spectrometer, so that's the only times I need Audio input. I do field audio work, so I don't use a crappy cellular phone for capturing stereo audio.. it's just precursor review. PERFECT THANKS FOR YOUR DEVELOPMENT and OFFERING - I had a hard time finding this software. Some of the reviews are obviously paid shills to detract. Using on Nexus 5 from Canada. I installed Camera blocker as welll i already review. Would give 100 stars if I could.


I think its a necessary and very good app. Google keeps threatening me if i dont remove it Talking Tom and other games wont work. i have a Googy Pixel ,2, worst phone EVER , Google ,their not very nice .


I love this app. I have a request. Add a real time logger that shows when an app access the microphone and how much data is accessing in real-time.


Seems to work very well, I tested it alot of different ways and each time it did what it supposed to do. Thanks for a great Free app.


Why do I keep getting notifications that this app is using my microphone with a specific time stamp of how long it was using it? Multiple times within the last hr of installation?


I would love a very small icon with the other icons next to the time showing a mic with a line through it or not to tell you if you are active.


why is the mic recording in the app only...what are you trying to hear??...it even gives a log of times it was listening WHY?


i could say it is really work. sadly i can't record my gameplay with this on. i had to choose between complete mute or with noise background.


I am unsing Nokia 3 running Android 8.1.0, since the last 2 app updates, Android system always indicate, Microphone Blocker using battery and running in background. Please advise.


I'm glad I saved the apk of this app. Since the last the December 2018 update, the app is less effective and using additional battery, despite the settings.


Works well. Has options to allow other apps to function properly if you want to record calls.


We'll see if it works. I get ads on YouTube and Facebook about things I have casually mentioned in private conversations. Creepy.


rubbish. microphone is unblocked every morning and regularly throughout the day even though I've manually turned off all app permissions to access it. only camera blocker is worse.


The best one yet most free down load then find out pay to have it


Handy app to have in my arsenal. Have had no problems with it.


occasionally without warning mic gets unblocked even with this app running. make a change requiring manually clicking this app screen to turn mic back on.


useless. all the functions it claims to have are only available in the paid version. seriously, it doesn't block a thing.


Needed for safety but definitely creates a communication gap when trying to communicate with friends on the phone.


Tired of things you talk about appear on your searches, and feed? Turn your mic off no more Google or FB listening to your conversations. Root not needed.


It's good until you go to bed, then the next morning you wake up & your microphone is not blocked. I shouldn't have to do this.


This App MAY be responsible for my notification sounds not playing. Will check thoroughly.Seems to work,Widget is useless though. Shows as 'Unblocked' when actual app shows as Blocked.


Downloaded it and set it up I didn't like it. After uninstalling it my camera won't even open! It crashes every time!


I like having easy control over my microphone.


Since the last two updates the app keep crashing and I keep ruining it again and again. Please fix this because it makes the app useless.


I was getting ads that were obviously based on things my phone heard. They stopped completely after installing this.


It's amazing to see how many apps try to use your microphone without you knowing about it.


Doesn't work on my htc desire 628, even blocked i can record my voice normally!!


It's a great app that l'll advise all users be accustom and feel the security and comfort.


the microphone gets unblocked every now & then


good app. just remember to unblock mic before try to record video.
