PrivacyProxy app helps you protect your private information by giving you control of what information is sent out from your device. Privacy Proxy is unique as it even filters the personal app identifiers if you choose to do so.
The PrivacyProxy app is developed as a joint effort by the research team of CHIMPS Lab and Synergy Lab at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
By installing PrivacyProxy, you actively contribute to research efforts aiming to enhance privacy standards in the mobile ecosystem. You may help in improving the state-of-the-art methods to protect your private data while using your mobile as you always do.
[Note] We don't forward your traffic to any remote server for analysis. We do all the analysis on your phone and all your personal data remains on your phone.
Why do you need the different permissions?
We need the location permission to double check if the information sent being sent out is actually location. This helps in filtering the permission with a fake location and doesn't break apps. We do not store/send it out and definitely do not use it to track you. The storage permission is needed to attach log files via feedback email. We do not use it for any other purpose.
