εxodus - the Privacy Auditing Platform for Android Applications

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.

A report will also give you the list of permissions the application requests to operate on your smartphone. Some of these permissions are tagged as dangerous. This means that from Google’s point of view, the application can do bad things using this permission. εxodus uses the Google permission classification.

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 .


εxodus Android Application

Our application is designed to list the applications already installed on your mobile phone (both from Google Play or F-Droid and report the trackers embedded in each application.

The application is available on F-Droid and Google Play.

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.
