The SLYGuard is a state-of-the-art security app whose aim is to solve multiple privacy and security issues associated with WhatsApp, the most popular over the top messaging application in the world with over 2 billion users.
WhatsApp keeps track of messaging, audio and video conversations. The logs generated by these activities (also called:” metadata”) are stored and shared with other entities, most notably Facebook - the owner of WhatsApp. SLYGuard removes all metadata logs or render them unusable by eliminating all reference to the user (IP location, call to and call from information). In addition, SLYGuard enhances WhatsApp security by controlling access by other apps to WhatsApp notifications, and by encrypting and limiting access to the media folders.
