Search the Play Store for camera apps and you may end up scrolling for what seems like hours. It’s great to have so many choices, but also a bit overwhelming, and in picking the one you want, it can be easy to forget that security and privacy aren’t always High priorities in the development of the application. So it’s good news to hear that GrapheneOS has created a few apps where personal privacy is number one.
As first noted by XDAGrapheneOS apps are Secure camera and secure PDF, and yes, they are all about privacy. Secure Camera works well with phones like the Google Pixel line and can handle a variety of common tasks beyond photography, like scanning regular QR codes and barcodes. Secure Camera only requests access to the camera and takes action with storage and sound recording that does not require any other permissions. It will ask for location permission if geotagging is already enabled and automatically removes EXIF metadata from your photos. As for Secure PDF, it adapts to security and does not require any special authorization to do its job.
