Android market is filled with a fair share of malware at the moment when compared to other mobile platforms like iOS, Windows Phone and Blackberry. In fact, Apple and RIM have brought in pretty strong security measures and apps containing malicious scripts rarely get their way through the app store.

It’s more easy for the developers to hide scripts in apps to spy your information on Android. It’ll always be safer to take some extra caution, not just on Android but in which ever platform you are. But here, we are talking about a useful app for the Android users which lets you know which app is using your device’s connectivity options with/without your permission.
