    Bookmarked! I actually suggested this type of an app on an Android forum about a year ago since I used to work for a boss that liked to snoop into my personal life. Although I never caught him in the act, I’d often leave my phone on my desk to charge (since I had a long commute) and I’ve always been paranoid about him going through my emails and Evernote accounts. Now I have a way to protect my privacy!

    It would be nice if you could program it to recognize your own face.. that way, it’ll just ignore it and not flood you any reports if it sees your own face.
