Privacy Dots

Powerful app that indicates whether other apps or services uses your location, camera and microphone. Be aware, after granting any of those permissions to an app they can use features without your knowing or as we call it "spying".
This app will help in that manners

Location permission
Use location permission to determine when other apps are using location access to share your current location.
Privacy Dots does not use either share or store your location, instead, permission is just used for detecting whether other apps or services use the location access.

Accessibility service
Enabling accessibility service is required to enable privacy monitoring which detects whether the applications have used your hardware such as camera and microphone.
All information received during app active time will stay locally (on your device). Once the app data is removed or uninstalled everything will be removed.

Great Project! Good work! So now we can find the spy apps easily!
Access Log is important as well.
Let's see what we can find :)
Thanks for your reply. Later today or till the end of a week, I'll add more customization, such as position, color, etc. It'll be fun ^^
Also planning to do several behaviors when they do appear and disappear from the screen.

just trying it out, looks great so far!

i noticed that for me, the bottom location options are incorrectly labelled:

choosing 'bottom left' actually displays the dot bottom right
choosing 'bottom center' actually displays the dot bottom left
choosing 'bottom right' actually displays the dot bottom center

but those are easy to work around once you know.

wish list stuff would be - a true custom colour picker (not just from preset default choices), and moving the dots to the status bar.

great job! i really like it :)

    does this work only for third party apps accessing the cam / mic / gps, or does it work when system apps access them too?
    It works for both.
