Designed to be installed on the Android phones, Haven is a system for users to help combat security threat. Haven app uses phone’s camera, microphones as well as the accelerometer to track the motion of Android device. By installing the Edward Snowden’s App into your Android phone the users are sure to get a number of benefits. You can leave the app running while managing your daily chorus, for instance, say, you are staying in a hotel room away from your home, the app will then track every minor activity currently happening. The app will then capture the photos and the audios of anyone entering the room.

The captured pictures and the audio files will then be sent to users’ primary phone to alert them. The application also uses phone’s light sensor that triggers an alert if the room goes dark. "Imagine if you had a guard dog you could take with you to any hotel room and leave it in your room when you’re not there. And it’s actually smart, and it witnesses everything that happens and creates a record of it," Snowden quoted to a news daily. "The real idea is to establish that the physical spaces around you can be trusted."

 

For now, Edward Snowden’s security App only works for Android devices. But the app’s developers have all the plan to take the application to the iOS devices too in the future. The users need to have some technical know-how of how the app can be installed on their smart devices like laptops and smartphones. Additionally, Haven is an open-source project that can be installed from here.

The Haven app is not a security app rather a repurposed application that has been designed to protect Android devices. By using the potential of built-in sensors, the app turns a system into multi-functioned security gadgets alerting the user every time any mishappening is attempted.

Haven security has been developed to take surveillance mechanism to a whole new level. As a part of the same functionality, the alerts in the form of photos and audios sent over users’ phones are end-to-end encrypted so that only the actual users can see the alerts.
