One of the reasons why I keep my BlackBerry in a case (among many others) is because of the dreaded pocket dialing. You know that situtation, for some reason when your BlackBerry is in your bag, purse, or pocket and, unbeknownst to you, dials out to one of the many contacts on your list. The party on the other then happens to pick up and proceeds to listen to whatever conversation is currently in progress, which may not be for suitable for their ears because of content or background noise.
If that scenario sounds all too familiar then you are not alone. I've received plenty of calls from friends, family, and co-workers who didn't realize they dialed my number or how I listened to the entire ruckus going on in the background.
SecureMic Inc. has the answer to this issue that will make sure conversations stay private and prevent any further embarrassment and eavesdropping. It is an easy to use application that quickly shuts down your microphone to ensure that no one will be listening in on your phone calls without you knowing.
- Quick and easy activation / deactivation of SecureMic
- Scheduler to turn on / off SecureMic automatically
- LED indicator to let you know SecureMic is active
- In call disabling of SecureMic without having to reactivate the app after your call has ended
We are all guilty at one time or another of accidentally dialing someone in our contact list. I admit there are times I probably stay on the line a little longer than I should, it's human nature. SecureMic is geared towards those who work in the business sector, government agencies, law enforcement, financial industry, and of course for personal use for these situations.
If you want to try and block unwanted people from listening in on your accidental calls then you can grab this for $2.99 for devices running OS 4.5 and higher (this application is not compatible with BlackBerry 10).
While some may balk that SecureMic is a little pricey for just automatically turning on the mute feature during outgoing and incoming calls, it does get the job done. It keeps confidential meetings and private conversations from being leaked to unwarranted third parties and provides peace of mind to busy professionals.
