'Who is Tracking '​


The application will detect any malicious APPS or BLOATWARE trying to track your location and user information (Bluetooth, WiFi, Bank Accounts, Messages, GPS, Social Networks information, 2G & 3G, etc.).

Application - Features :

'Who is Tracking' will detect any malicious apps or bloatware trying to track your location using GPS, or tracking user data from incoming / outgoing call lists, messages, Wi-Fi network information, 2G/3G data, Gmail, Facebook and similar apps. (Few features works only paid). Using this applicaiton you can find-out any one HACKING or TRACKING your phone.

WiFi, GPS,2G,3G,4G,GPS,NFC & SERVER TRACKER: After running the detection test, you will receive a real time sound alert if any traces of tracking is found. In-case anyone is trying to track you, the sound will come automatically (Real time sound works only paid).

App Server Tracker : Track apps server location (Which country server the app is using) Gmail Server location, FB, Twitter, etc...

Sus App list : List Danger apps

App Permission Blocker - Block certain application permission..
Sound Alert : After running the detection test, you will receive a real time sound alert if any traces of tracking is found. In-case anyone is trying to track you, the sound will come automatically (Real time sound works only paid).

System Information : Know about your device system information (Processor, CPU Core , SD card, Memory).

Android OS : Manufacture info, Model No, Product Release, Version, Device Info, Open GL, Kernel info, etc.

App Permission : List of permission required by the apps.

User Installed App : List of applications installed by user.

System App : List of System apps.

'Who is Tracking 'provides a list of all apps which are accessing GPS, Wi-Fi, 2G/3G, Gmail and other apps, and also the reason why the apps need this info (Few features works only paid).

Allow Mock Allocation : Enable this feature to send mock GPS data if any app is trying to access GPS info for longer duration or multiple times.


[ Example : Yelp has permissions to access GPS data to triangulate on your current location to provide you with restaurants around you. But it accesses the data only once on initialization, but malicious tracking apps will keep accessing the GPS data to track your movements and location at all times in the background. ]

Select - Delete History : Deletes complete history information from your device (Few features works only on paid version).

Why 'Who is Tracking ' was created

There are communities in hacker forums and blogs whereby they push to develop and publish apps which can track your data and retrieve the extracted information (Ex. your contact information, email IDs, phone numbers, saved bank account details or any other important information).
Android, to a certain extent, can restrict such apps from being published in PlayStoreTM , but hackers bypass these by using techniques like reflection, API mirroring, etc.

Even though all the custom ROM developers take immense care in providing ultimate user data protection, still hackers copy the OS, modify the APIs to provide access to personal data and hidden / internal APIs. By this, they will be able to monitor, record and access the data created by you while sharing with various apps on your Android device.

We used a couple new features of ANDROID to stop hackers to track the information.

Cool app. Appreciate the idea of tracking the trackers!

Don't lose hope. Good apps will surely get their recognition.

I suggest you improve the UI as people today are very particular about it.
1.On the main page, where each option is given, rather than just having them colored in blue, keep them like buttons which gives a click effect when clicked. You can atleast add a onClick color.
2. Make sure the app name is displayed clearly. Highlight it everywhere.
3. Have a title in result page where tracking apps are displayed. Now it's plain with text on white page from top to bottom.
4. Have a good logo. It'll make a lot of difference, trust me.
5. If you don't mind add an option to exit the app.

Improve the UI, that'll make huge difference. Wont take much time too.

Just trying to help you. Please dont take negative my feedback. Implement them if you feel it's fine. Just sharing my opinion :)
Few more suggestions:
Change the title of thread to - Who is tracking - Find out who's trying to hack your phone!

and after installing the app name is being shown as PackagePoc. It'll be good if that is also renamed with app name.
