Can you please tell me what the whitelist is doing in Micro Guard Android?

The whitelist feature in Micro Guard Android enables trusted apps to bypass the microphone protection. By adding an app to the whitelist, you can allow it to use your microphone without interference from Micro Guard. For instance, if you add your voice recording app to the whitelist, you can record your voice with ease.

However, even if an app is on the whitelist, the integrated Deep Detective protection module in Micro Guard constantly monitors which apps or processes are attempting to access the microphone. This advanced security feature not only identifies known attack attempts but also employs modern heuristic methods to detect unknown threats. Therefore, Micro Guard offers comprehensive protection against unauthorized access to your Android device's microphone.
