  • Permission Required: To use the SMS Shield feature, we require permission to read your SMS messages. This permission is solely for the purpose of analyzing the content of incoming messages to detect links.

The rest of the SMS content is not collected or stored by our application, ensuring the privacy of your personal communications.
