Smartphones are a very handy device; they make our life really easy. With startups launching apps to order laundries, food delivery and book cabs, etc, smartphones have become a primary source to transfer funds. Almost every application gives us an option to save the card details for faster operation, though it saves time, but it also increases the risk of our data getting stolen.
This is why we need an app which can protect our data from getting stolen, there are a lot of security apps available in the market but not all of them are effective enough. This is why I am writing this review of one of the best mobile security apps available in the market LEO Privacy Guard.
LEO Privacy Guard is developed by LEOMASTER, with the aim of providing better mobile surfing experience it was started in 2014. They have their branches in India, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Beijing. LEO Privacy Guard is the first product launched by LEOMASTER, it is an application management tool which gives you an option to lock your apps, photo, videos, text messages etc, and it has many more features.

Let’s take a look at LEO Privacy Guard Features
Theme and Interface
The developers of LEO Privacy Guard have done a great job in keeping the interface easy and simple, when you open the application it will ask you to enter the security pattern you have setup, you get 5 attempts to enter the correct pattern. On the home screen of the application you will see 3 main tabs Lock, Protection and My apps.
Under Lock tab you find various options using which you can select which apps you want to lock, which theme you want to apply, modes and app cover which is a great feature for protecting your app.
Under the protection tab you can check the level of security your phone has, depending on that level, the app suggests you how you can make your phone more secure.
My Apps tab gives you details about the data usage, battery usage and an option to create a backup of photos, videos and various applications.
Installing many apps and games makes your phone really slow; these apps keep running in the background which ruins your phone’s performance. These apps create a lot of junk files which eats your phone’s storage space. The phone boost feature present in LEO Privacy Guard stops the applications running in the background and increases the speed and performance of your phone. A boost icon is created on the main screen of your phone, so you can boost your phone with just one tap. It also gives you an option to delete the junk files present in the application which will prevent your mobile space from getting wasted. You can backup of your images, videos and existing apps on your SD card to save space.
Security and Privacy
Our smartphones are full of private data, personal images, video, files and folders. We really hate it when someone tries to snoop in our phone, some of our friends and colleagues knowingly or unknowingly barge in our privacy. Also a lot of apps contain our banking and card details, but with LEO Privacy Guard security feature we can prevent such things from happening. You can setup a security pattern or passcode so no one can access your private data, files and application. There are other features like app cover which add an extra layer of security, you also need to setup a security question and Password hint.
