What is this?

Behind the scenes, many mobile apps send extensive information about you to their servers, and to advertisers and analytics companies that profit from your data. ReCon identifies this information and allows you to block it. Based on analysis from our users and extensive in-house tests on popular apps, we've listed what each app is sending about you. We expect the results will surprise you---if you want to do something about this, please sign up to use ReCon today!

You can sort the data below by a number of factors, and search for apps using the text box. By default, we sort the apps from "most leaky" to "least leaky." Our custom leakiness Score is the weighted sum of the type of PII leaked, the amount of times leaked, and the number of domains it is leaked to. Behavior such as sending your password in plaintext (which exposes it to potential hackers) is given very high weight and will appear near the top. There are several popular apps that continue to leak your password in plaintext, and we will post their details once we have worked with app developers to fix them.
