Know if someone unlocked your screen and is spying on your device! True security against physical access. It works if they know your password and even if no password is set for the lock-screen.
iAmNotified is the solution to definitively secure your device!
It acts as a watchdog that lets you know if someone accessed your iPhone or iPad while you were not looking. It can also alert people that you are monitoring the device, discouraging any malicious access.
No one can access your device without the password. But...
What happens if your sneaky colleague or friend peeks while you type it in?
What if your partner or parents simply demand it? ("Why don't you give me your password, are you hiding something?".... does this sound familiar?).
What if someone uses your fingerprint to unlock your device while you sleep? (yeah, it has happened, check the press).
They would have access to your entire life: pictures, videos, contacts, whatsapp conversations, facebook chats, emails (which mean access to any of your online accounts via password reset), etc.
They might even install malware to spy on you remotely!
THE WORST PART IS YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THAT SOMEONE HAD ACCESS TO YOUR DEVICE.
That you need to change your password. That a tracking virus is running on your device. That you have to alert your bank. That your competitor has stolen your confidential data. That your partner knows about "those" pictures and conversations and you'd better prepare a good excuse....
That people you trust don't respect your privacy!
+++ HOW IT WORKS +++
! THE SIMPLEST APP EVER !
1. open the App
2. lock the screen
That's it! Your device is Secured!
You will immediately receive a notification on the lock-screen. The notification will remain there until the screen stays locked. If anyone unlocks the screen while you are away, the notification will not be there when you return, alerting you that someone had access to your device.
The notification changes every single time for extra security.
The History Log keeps track of the last notifications shown, so by-passing the system is virtually impossible.
Double Function: use the app with STEALTH NOTIFICATIONS to catch anyone who is spying on you, or with DETERRENT NOTIFICATIONS to let everybody know that you are monitoring any access to the device.
You choose what appears on the notification:
+ STEALTH NOTIFICATIONS (simulate a useful notification, to disguise the true nature of iAmNotified)
- Lucky Lottery Numbers - [Who doesn't play the lottery? I mean... free money, right?!]
- Famous Citations - [Because everyone needs some inspirational quotes every now and then]
- Definition of a Complex Word - [Education is important! Anyone would want to expand his vocabulary]
- Fake Stock Exchange Alert - [These are total random companies symbols and values. Not real data to be sued in the stock market!]
+ DETERRENT NOTIFICATIONS (showing that you are monitoring the device, will discourage people from accessing it)
- Custom Message - [You choose what appears on the notification]
- "Device locked at: #current date and time#" - [Shows the time of the last screen lock]
- "Access to this device is monitored. Unique notification ID: #securityID#"
*** PRO OPTIONS ***
Improve your stealthiness with these advanced options
- Secret Lock -> Launch iAmNotified without anyone near you noticing. When the option is activated, a black dimmed screen is shown when the app is opened, simulating the lock screen. Now you can secretly press the lock button to lock the screen, or wait for it to lock automatically. To access the app with the option activated, simply tap anywhere on the black screen.
- Random Notification Time -> The notification appears at a random time within 2 minutes from the screen lock, instead of immediately after
Start to feel in control of your device!
Fixed the notification issue that was affecting some users.
Ratings and Reviews
About your app
Well I don’t know about programming iOS, I saw your option for displaying a message if someone did. I’m pretty positive they know something about programming iOS so writing a script to change the display time would probably be easy for them, especially if they could break my password and SIM lock. J/s
So I’m writing this review not only because the app does exactly what it says… not an oz less, not an oz more but because I think the app and developer have truly been shorted on the rating of this app.. it never ceases to amaze me how many people graduated high school or got a GED but, can’t seem to understand the basic description and function of this app… Really, com’on guys, I understood every function of the app before purchasing by FULLY READING the description; Honestly the only thing I didn’t know for sure and would like to suggest/see if possible was if the app would (or in app option like stealth screen) throw the notification if the app was running in the background and not the last app open on your phone thus adding to stealth mode, overall security and function and use ability of the app (not having to remember to open app before lock) that being said this gets 5 stars because of the reviews that say something to the effect of “the app doesn’t work i want my money back because like every time I try to check the notification on my Lock Screen it totally like disappears and when I lock it again it totally like pop’s up again but like I cant see how it like totally tells me definitively if like someone tried to open my phone 💅🏼💇🏼♀️💁🏼♀️………..SMFH 🤦♂️😬😐🤐…Com’On 🧠⚡️💡Folks….
Developer Response ,
Hey Vinvinsim, thanks a lot for the positive feedback and showing to understand my struggle 😅. Much appreciated that you took the time!
To answer to your question, I also agree it would be great to have it running in the background, but unfortunately apple does not allow to do so and for very good security reasons, limiting what developers can do in the background.
No such thing as stealth
The stealth option does not change the app icon or display name. At least the name change would be nice. It is automatically opened at unlock which must be how it time stamps. But again even with the black screen option it only takes a snoop one nondescript tap to get into the app and see what it really is.
Suggestions. Stealth notification should display decoy icon/name. Not sure how this is accomplished programming wise but it can’t be impossible. Also to disable black screen you should have to enter a certain touch/motion combo not one generic tap, ex) tap three times in left corner then rotate to landscape view.
Developer Response ,
Thanks a lot for downloading iAmNotified and for the review! I also agree that changing the name of the app and the icon in the notification would be fantastic, it was in my features list, but unfortunately iOS does not allow to modify those. Also the opening of the app at unlock, is not controllable by the developer. It is the same with all other apps: if you lock the screen from any app, it may open again or not at unlock, depending on the resources needed by the phone, which may kill apps that are running in the background.
I also get your point on the black screen, but the main function of that option is to "hide" the opening of the app, before you lock the screen, so people around don't notice that you have activated it. It is not mean to keep people out of the phone or the app.
Thank you again! Best regards, Tommaso
