Privacy app store

The privacy smartphone company Blackphone is launching its own app store for users concerned about privacy and security. The Blackphone app store will be available in January 2015 and will monitor apps to make sure they do not snoop on users. The app store will validate that the apps will do what they intend to do. For example if you have an app to manage your social media accounts and it wants access to your microphone and your camera Blackphone might ask why and get on a first screening.
