DTEK user reviews :
Useful to know what apps are doing what and provides more useful detail than most security tools. Good but a little buggy. Continuously tells of unused permissions that have been used.
Good idea, but the implementation could use some work. I’m glad I found out about Google’s insidious backdoor that lets YouTube eavesdrop through the microphone even though it doesn’t have permission to use the microphone. I DON’T need a notification every time my Calendar app accesses my calendar.
The unused permission function is funny. Dtek suggested to turn off the permission of phone calls for BB calendar, because it wasn’t accessed for more 60 days. I did it, but BB calendar doesn’t work without that. Second joke: when I turn on the classical (bb10-like) picture password (with PIN), Dtek alerts me about unsecured boot-up settings.

I am using the DTEK app on my BlackBerry PRIV, and I’d like to report a bug. I’m using a password for my screen lock. This is recognized properly by the DTEK app, and I get an all-green excellent rating. However, once I enable the “Picture Password” feature (on top of the character password), DTEK decreases my security rating a bit, showing the following yellow recommendation: “Data encryption: Data on your device is encrypted, but secure start-up is turned off”. The phone does still ask for the password to be typed in before it will start, so I think this is a false warning. Can you please fix it?
Supeiror app like BB10 was for its time. Typed from my Priv, waiting a Priv 2 with 4:3 ratio since android may not allow 1:1.. as wide as possible is more sensible then 16:9 its the only thing Apple ever did correct was its 4:3 ratio. Hoping for a Passport SE like device by TCL and BBRY softwate special features and security. High end… #WorkWide …Release to the masses, get it into the main carriers in the states where most folks are afraid to purchase a phone online for ‘some odd reason….

- Hi Walter, Please update to version 188.8.131.526 and let us know if you are still see a POOR status. Thanks, DTEK Prod Mgmt
Since the latest update it’s working well. The only niggle is that it’s still telling me that the apps I download from the google playstore are not being scanned for malicious software when they actually are. Other than that it’s now an excellent app. Well done!
