Mobile trackers have permeated the ecosystems of Android and iOS. At Yale Privacy Lab, we have detected and categorized a variety of these mobile trackers, from simple crash reporters to analytics platforms to ultrasonic beacons. We will explore methods of detecting these trackers on Android via the Exodus Privacy scanner and static analysis, as well as network analysis via a Raspberry Pi PiRogue device. PilferShush, a mobile app for detecting and jamming ultrasonic trackers, will also be demonstrated.
