To create, as a community, an open platform for education and protection of Android users against privacy and security threats.

Project description

OWASP Seraphimdroid is a privacy and security protection app for Android devices. It enables users to protect their devices against malicious software (viruses, trojans, worms, etc.), phishing SMS, MMS messages, execution of dangerous USSD codes, theft and loss. Also, it enables the user to protect their privacy and to control the usage of applications and services via various kinds of locks.

OWASP Seraphimdroid has two aims:

  • To protect user's privacy and secure the device against malicious features that may cost user money
  • To educate user about threats and risks for their privacy, privacy of their data and security of their device.

OWASP Seraphimdroid is free and open source community driven project, supported by OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Foundation. Everyone is welcome to participate. If you are interested, please join our mailing list (
