Exodus Privacy: The Tracker-Checker

Meanwhile, at least two thirds of all Android Apps are tracker ridden. Even the paid ones. More than ten trackers in a single app are no rare cases – even apps with 20 or more than 30 trackers have already turned up. And they endangering our privacy. Play Store doesn’t point them out – but thanks to Exodus Privacy, we track them down.

F-Droid: The privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play Store

With Google Play Store you´re tracked without end: by the Play Store itself as well as by the most apps you can find in it. But you can escape that – e.g. by turning your back to Play Store and instead use an alternative focusing on free and open software as well as privacy. One such can be found in F-Droid – which this article introduces.

It has been around for quite a while, but was never introduced in an article here. Time for a few words on the „IzzyOnDroid F-Droid Repo“ and what it offers.

Most apps ship with additional modules. Some of those are required for the functionality, others are not. While still serving a justified purpose, they come at a cost. This article will take a deeper look at this second category.

App reviews and security reports mention them regularly: identifiers which apps like to access. Identitifying information picked from the device and „getting transfered to somewhere“.

Smartwatches and privacy – contradiction in terms?

We´ve already got our privacy concerns with out smartphones: Will apps leak our personal data? How much do embedded ad-modules collect? Are we already „glass people“ to the big players?
