When activating Alibi, users can customize the recording experience to record all possible data, or just a few sources (say, audio and the phone’s location). From there, the app automatically collects data and stores it to the phone’s cache. The app has been designed to not deplete one’s battery, and it runs without further interaction, in the background of the device.
If users are then involved in a dangerous or questionable situation, like a physical altercation, incident of bullying, or a car accident (as examples), the app can be used to provide proof of what actually occurred. Any saved data is moved to the phone’s local storage, and is compressed and hidden to avoid the possibility of a third party tampering with the content. Alibi promises to never personally store or share any data with any other party, ever.
Alibi is available to download for $0.99 on Google Play.
