Android is one of the most popular mobile operating system (OS). Android is currently developed by the Google and other developers. It is an open source OS, based on the Linux kernel. Android can be used on smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and other devices. Android supports different types of applications, hardwares and firmwares. The Android operating system has different flavors and versions due to its open nature. This can lead to security and privacy concerns. Google Play Store is the most popular online app store for Android. As of 2015, more than 1.6 million applications have been listed on the Google Play Store [1]. In this project, I develop 'SecuFone: Android Security Advisor' an Android application. SecuFone evaluates the security of the overall system and provides advisory (recommendation) to improve their security. It evaluates security by using a hierarchical system. Hierarchical system uses fuzzy logic to provide users with the generalized score based on the metrics. The recommendations and score generated by the application helps users to enhance their privacy and security of their devices.
