Hackuna - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, you need a lot of programming experience to win the Philippine Hacker Games where you battle with elite hackers and PhD degree holders :)

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging part is the continuous creation of complex algorithms to block every possible way where a hacker can hack the user. This is because, almost every week, new hacking strategies arise, and man we have to inline them with the mobile apps in order to protect our users. There is no 100% security in cyberspace, so it is a challenge for us to always be up to date regarding the hacking strategies.

I am Alexis John A. Lingad, founder and CEO of Cryptors Cybersecurity Inc. I'm the lead developer of 'Hackuna'. Author of the book: 'Cyber Defender: The Power of Hacking', and former Cybersecurity Consultant at iEi Securities USA. I was the Philippine Hacker Games Champion for 2015 & 2017.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

'Telegram', because it really helps me in having a private and secure convo with a person, and my data is not being sold to others hahaha...

How long have you been working on this app?

Two months...since June 4. We launched the app on July 31, and it reached the top 4 Trending Tools on August 2, but for just one day hahaha...as I write this we have 3000+ installs.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

The need to secure themselves from all kinds of hackers. - Most people connect to public Wi-Fi networks and a public Wi-Fi network is an oasis for hackers, thank God there's 'Hackuna' where you can block these hackers and even trace them haha (they will be the ones who will be afraid of hacking you). - Most people think that all apps on the Play Store are safe, but they do not know there are yet some dangerous and untrusted apps existing in there and thank God again because there's 'Hackuna' that can tell you about these apps or even remove them for you. - Most people really don't know if they're being hacked or if they have already been hacked...'Hackuna' will tell you if you are currently being hacked.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Our app is better than the existing antivirus software just because an antivirus can only secure you by 10% at the most, but the other 90% is all about the hacking strategies. Our app focuses on blocking those hacking strategies in order for the user to be secured even more than what we usually receive from traditional antivirus companies. It also teaches the users how to secure themselves from hackers in a very easy to understand tutorial, so they can be secured not just on their smartphones but literally everywhere! In the app, you can also see what is really happening in the background of your smartphone.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Our future plan is to have an iOS version of 'Hackuna'. We are also planning to have Anonymity and Privacy features in 'Hackuna', which are way better and faster than in any existing apps, making 'Hackuna' the real "Swiss Army Knife" for cybersecurity.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Our company is building the future where majority of people in the digital world will be secure. Join us in this revolution by sharing this app to your friends and family!


About App: Cryptors Cybersecurity Inc. made something useful for your digital life - Hackuna. Do you often connect to public Wi-Fi networks and worry if there might be a hacker around to misuse that?
