Once you’ve allowed third-party apps the CAMERA or MICROPHONE permission did you know that they can silently use them in the background?
Do you feel envious of the new iOS 14’s privacy feature that shows a dot indicator whenever a CAMERA or MICROPHONE is accessed?
Safe Dots, adds the same iOS 14-style indicators (a few pixels light up as a dot) to the top right (default) corner of your screen whenever any third-party app or service uses your phone’s camera or microphone.
Safe Dots will be visible even on your lock screen. Configuring the App is as simple as enabling the Safe Dots Accessibility Service (Toggle switch in the App > (More) Downloaded Services/Installed Services > Dot > Enable).
By default, the App is configured to show iOS 14-style coloured access dots – green for camera access, and orange for microphone access. The App itself does not request the camera or microphone access so, don’t worry!.
The app displays Safe Dots whenever the phone’s camera or microphone is engaged by a third-party App.
The App uses Accessibility Service to detect the app that is trying to use your device hardware (such as a Camera or Microphone). You’ll be required to enable the Accessibility permission in the app so the app can work as intended.
All the data collected by the Accessibility service will be stored on your device and will be erased when the app is removed or data is cleared.
Maintain an Access Log, which can be accessed from the App’s main settings screen. The Access Log shows when the camera/microphone was accessed, which App was in the foreground at the time of access initiation and how long the access lasted.
