FOLLOWING GOOGLE'S PLAY STORE POLICIES, THIS VERSION OF TRACKERCONTROL DOES NOT BLOCK TRACKING.
TrackerControl Slim is an Android app that allows users to STUDY the widespread, ongoing, hidden data collection in mobile apps about user behaviour (‘tracking’).
To detect tracking, TrackerControl combines the power of the Disconnect tracker list, used by Firefox, and our in-house tracker list, created from analysing ~2 000 000 apps!
Additionally, TrackerControl detects tracker libraries in apps using the signatures from ClassyShark3xodus/Exodus Privacy for the analysis of tracker libraries within app code.
The app also aims to educate about your rights under Data Protection Law, such the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Under the hood, TrackerControl uses Android’s VPN functionality, to analyse apps’ network communications locally on the Android device. This is accomplished through a local VPN server, to enable network traffic analysis by TrackerControl.
No root is required, other VPNs or Private DNS are not supported. No external VPN server is used, to keep your data safe!
