Shareit is a famous app that started as a file transfer application, but now it is becoming more like a content platform just like Helo and ShareChat. With Files by Google, You can send and receive files without any ad or content notification.
2. Adobe Scan – Alternative for Cam Scanner
Last year, The CamScanner app was removed from the Play Store after Kaspersky found a Trojan Horse module (Hidden Malware) inside the CamScanner app. Adobe Scan is one of the best alternatives providing the same service.
3. Norton App lock – Alternative for App Lock
Norton app lock is a simple, ad-free and offers a clean experience. Whereas in ‘AppLock’ you are basically allowing the app to read your internal storage and have access to the camera and microphone.
