εxodus analyses Android applications. It looks for embedded trackers and lists them. A tracker is a piece of software meant to collect data about you or what you do. In a way, εxodus reports are a way of knowing what really are the ingredients of the cake you are eating. εxodus does not decompile applications, its analysis technique is entirely legal.
The εxodus website lets you:
Each report will tell you what trackers are embedded into the application. By clicking on a tracker’s name, you will be taken to a page showing more details on this tracker as well as the list of applications using it. If the tracker description is empty or inaccurate, please feel free to refer to the ETIP project.
We wrote some educational articles to inform smartphone users about trackers and permissions and give them some tools to better manage their privacy. You can read them in the Better understand page of the εxodus platform.
If you are curious or want to help us to improve εxodus, you can file issues or submit improvements on our GitHub project .
The application does not analyse the applications installed directly on your smartphone, instead it retrieves the reports already available on the εxodus platform. Of course, the εxodus application itself does not contain any trackers.
The main goal of Exodus Privacy is to raise awareness of the extent of tracking by and in mobile applications. To this end, we have created videos explaining how and why tracking massively occurs on smartphones. You can watch these videos on 2 platforms:
