Access Dots is an app by XDA recognised developer, Jagan2, that brings iOS 14 enabled camera and mic access indicator to Android.
Our phones are now filled with more applications than we can keep up with, and we only need a few of them. There are several apps, disguised as utilities that are secretly spying on us with granted permissions.
Background use of phone camera, microphone, or location is common on Android 9 devices and above. Xiaomi with MIUI 12 and Apple with iOS 14 can alert users of rogue apps accessing mics, cameras or locations in the background of their phones.
Access Dots offers a similar feature to older versions of Android phones. It is also available for other phone manufacturers and does not discriminate.
