The Cate (Call and Text Eraser) app for Android has many features that can help you communicate privately. At the touch of a button, it can erase personal information from your phone that you don’t want others to see. It can block calls and texts or hide numbers from a contact list, and is protected by a secret code. The app, which is currently available for $4.99, lets you start private calls, texts and picture messages, and it minimizes when idle or if the phone is given a quick shake.
You can choose not to display the name of a caller, and hide specific calls and text messages. The Cate app can either have a hidden icon or no icon on your phone’s home screen. The Telegraph reports that the app was designed by a Miami police officer and then bought by 25-year-old entrepreneur Neal Desai, who secured $70,000 to develop it by appearing on the TV show Shark Tank. Desai has said that the privacy app could also be used by government officials, corporate businesses, or lawyers, who need to keep certain information confidential.
