Haven: Keep Watch

Protect personal spaces and possessions without compromising privacy
Author:Guardian Project
Google Play:Check if it's there

Haven is an app for people needing a way to protect their private sphere and possessions without compromising their own privacy. It turns the on-device sensors of any Android phone into a motion, sound, vibration and light detector, alerting you of unexpected guests and intruders in your physical spaces. By combining monitoring and device storage, with secure communications technologies, like Signal and Tor, it prevents the worst kind of people from silencing citizens without getting caught in the act. By protecting investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and people at risk of forced disappearance, a new kind of herd immunity is created.

Safety through Sensors

Haven only saves images and sound triggered by motion or volume, storing everything locally on your device. Position the device’s camera to capture visible motion, or place your phone somewhere discreet to listen just for noises. Get secure notifications of intrusion events instantly, and access logs remotely at any time.

Sensors monitored for measurable change, recorded to the device event log:

anti Anti-Features:
  • NonFreeDep: The application depends on a non-free application (usually Google Services) – i.e. it requires it to be installed on the device, but does not include it.
