Of the five apps you identified, I've never heard of 2, 3, and 4. Of the three, I thought the most noteworthy was the Bouncer app (clever name!) because I've always wondered why a notes app or solitaire game asks for access to my contacts or photos--for example. Strange!

I mean, I've known the "free" aren't actually free, but I guess they're collecting my data to sell back to advertisers. Nonetheless, disturbing...

Overall, I thought the way you formatted your article was incredibly well-done. Also, I like the concise descriptions of each app. You did a fantastic job at eliminating the fluff!

Thank you for sharing your article and this valuable information about the security apps!
