BlackBerry freshens up its DTEK app by revising the UI and adding new features

6


BlackBerry introduced its DTEK security app at the same time it unveiled its first Android powered phone, the BlackBerry Priv. The app measures how secure your BlackBerry handset is in terms of the passwords you're using. It also lets you know which apps have access to your camera, microphone, location, and personal information. DTEK will let you know where your phone's weakest link is, and if there is anything that you can do to bolster security on your 'Berry.

The DTEK app has received an update today that includes a refreshed UI. The complete changelist reads:

  • New home screen prioritizes the most important information, so you can quickly identify and address important issues.
  • Automatic weekly scan.
  • Manual scan option.
  • Classify permissions as containing more sensitive information. DTEK defaults to have Camera, Mic, and Phone as sensitive.
  • Instant notifications when apps access your sensitive permissions while not in active use.
If you own an Android powered 'Berry, you can try to see if the update is available by opening the Google Play Store app and tapping the hamburger menu on the left side of the search bar. From there, tap on My apps & games and look for a pending update for DTEK by BlackBerry. If it is there, tap on the box marked "Update." If you don't see it, try again tomorrow, and keep trying until it appears.
