Clueful mobile application returns to the market

Bitdefender – a company creating a variety of anti-virus, anti-theft and other security applications for both web and mobile, launched its mobile application Clueful last year. It was available for iOS and cost $4. The application detailed how other applications on user’s device handle personal data. Clueful mobile application was launched just at the time of appearance of a wide number of high-profile security events such as address book-gate and location gate.

For the unclear reason Clueful was removed from Apple’s App Store soon after its debut. The company’s representatives said that the reason was that their application showed too much. But the experts say that the reason was that to work the application itself needed to pull a list of applications from the device, send the list to the server and then compare it with the applications it had in the database. However Clueful returned in a web version later.

This year Clueful mobile application prepared a bright comeback. This time its creator Bitdefender targets Android users instead of iOS. The application is expected to reveal what the applications on user’s device do and how the privacy may be compromised in the process. On Android operating system Clueful is available for free and provides an option to upgrade for added security which includes a real-time web scanner and some more features. This is provided by company’s anti-virus application that costs $9.95 per year.

The application may find more popularity with Android users as they have to be more cautious as the applications are not checked before launch. Besides the devices based on Android operating system are still not so technically sophisticated when it comes to sorting the good applications from the bad ones.
