National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden is back, this time with an app called Haven that will transform any Android smartphone into a sensor that can detect intrusions.
The app, designed by The Guardian Project and the Freedom of the Press Foundation, is "for people who need a way to protect their personal spaces and possessions without compromising their own privacy".
Snowden, currently living in asylum in Russia, is president of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. "We designed Haven for investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and people at risk of forced disappearance to create a new kind of herd immunity," The Guardian Project wrote on its website on Friday.
