Privacy has always been a concern, and has somewhat heightened by recent revelations. And although I doubt any government would resort to using apps to ‘maintain national security,’ there are still dodgy ‘developers’ out there you need to look out for. So to help out with that, XDA Senior Member jacksparao introduced Who is Tracking.
Who is Tracking generates a list of apps that have some form of network access on your device. This means Who is Tracking will display any apps that have access to your device via Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and your mobile network, allowing you to spot and act on anything that just doesn’t seem right. In addition, Who is Tracking has a ‘Test Anyone Tracking You’ feature, which brings up any connected services on your device. Other nifty little features include the option to wipe your GPS history and shortcuts to enable mock GPS locations, as well as a to your security settings.
With Who is Tracking, you may be surprised with how many apps have access to your device in ways you’d never even consider. The app is still under active development by jacksparao, so we hope to see more improvements and additions in the future. It’s compatible with devices running Android version 2.2 or newer, and is free from the Play store. For more information, check out the original thread._________
