MIAMI - Nov. 21, 2017 - Rezul -- ProtectStar today is proud to announce the releases and immediate availability of Camera Guard 2 for Android and Micro Guard 2 for Android, an important update to their popular security apps. The two apps protect any Android's built-in webcam and microphone from being accessed by hackers, malware, and spyware. Version 2.0 brings improved protection against unauthorized access to the Android smartphone's microphone and web camera.

Camera Guard 2 and Micro Guard 2 for Android sits quietly in the background, monitoring the Android's built-in microphone and webcam for any unauthorized access attempts. The two apps efficiently block any detected attempts, while also alerting the user to the attempts. The utilities block both known and unknown attacks methods, thanks to its exclusive "Deep Detective" feature.

"When we discovered that illegal monitoring of Android users via their Android devices built-in microphones and cameras was on the rise we created Camera Guard and micro Guard in 2016, which offered complete protection against unauthorized access of your Androids's web camera and mic," says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar.

The new version of both apps - Camera Guard 2 for Android and Micro Guard 2 for Android - offer numerous new features, including improved access detection, and a whitelist for allowed apps and processes.

Camera Guard 2 and Micro Guard 2 for Android devices still includes ProtectStar's exclusive "Deep Detective" feature, which monitors all attempted access to any protected Android smartphone or tablet. While offering proactive protection that is similar to other companies' firewall or intrusion detection utilities, Deep Detective also reports and protects against both known and unknown attacks, via its modern heuristic methods.
