CloudSEK has launched the BeVigil app to provide users with detailed information about the security and privacy practices of their mobile apps.
With the BeVigil app, users can search for apps by name and view detailed information about an app’s security and privacy practices, including its permissions, data collection, and more.
“We believe that everyone has the right to know what happens to their personal data when they use mobile applications, and how secure each of these applications is. That’s why we created BeVigil to give users the tools they need to make informed decisions about which apps to download and use,” said Rahul Sasi, CEO of CloudSEK.
“BeVigil not only helps the user to determine the security and risk of the application, our mobile application will also help bug researchers to report bugs to various mobile application development companies, which will help them improve the mobile application security. Overall, we want BeVigil to contribute to the security community by improving mobile security for everyone,” added Rahul Sasi.
BeVigil is now available as a free download on the Google Play Store. BeVigil has been running as a web app for the past year and has already scanned and rated over a million apps.

These features make BeVigil a powerful mobile app security tool and help users make informed decisions about which apps to download and use.
BeVigil helps solve several major security and privacy issues in mobile applications. Some of the ways this is done include:
Enhance mobile/data security: By providing users with detailed information about mobile application security and privacy practices, BeVigil helps users identify and avoid potentially harmful applications. This is important because many mobile apps have security vulnerabilities that can compromise user privacy.
Empowering users to make informed decisionsA: BeVigil gives users the tools they need to make informed decisions about which apps to download and use. By providing users with detailed information about app security and privacy practices, BeVigil helps users make more informed decisions about which apps to trust with their personal data.
Increasing transparency: BeVigil promotes transparency in the mobile app ecosystem by providing users with detailed information about mobile app security and privacy practices. This helps users understand what happens to their personal data when they use mobile apps and makes it easier for them to identify and avoid apps that collect or use their personal data in ways they don’t like.
We help prevent data leakage: By providing users with detailed information about mobile application security and privacy practices, BeVigil can help prevent data leakage caused by security vulnerabilities in mobile applications. When users are better informed about mobile app security and privacy practices, they are less likely to download and use apps with security vulnerabilities.
