Today I came across a app on play store called RLWatcher. It is an amazing app which could come in handy in a lot of situations. It lets the user remotely sense movement, sound or even just the slightest motion of the phone and record audio or video for a specified amount of time. It then sends the recording as a email or uploads it to a ftp server. It is amazing!
But I am concerned about my privacy and this app seems a bit fishy. For one thing, the developer of the app could use this app to spy on the user. It could upload video/audio to a third location. Also for getting the recoded clip as an email, we are to submit our gmail account and password. Will my password be safe? Also it is to be noted that the app crashed a lot.
Does Google offer any protection from possible fraud of this type? Will you trust this app if you were in my place? How do you verify?
