This tool shows users what information is being sent by mobile applications to third parties, including understanding how companies are tracking their movements in their day-to-day life. ReCon detects device/user identifiers used in tracking, geolocation leaks, unsafe password transmissions, and personal information such as name, address, gender, and relationship status. This information is available to users via a private Web page, and ReCon allows them to provide feedback on whether important leaks have been found, and whether the leak should be blocked or the information sent modified.
