Hello, my name is Valère, I am a French entrepreneur concerned about user privacy and how much users know about data harvesting, user tracking and its consequences. Thanks to the incredible work of the Exodus Privacy team (https://exodus-privacy.eu.org/), a French non-profit that discloses trackers in Android environment applications, I have been able to create this cool little browser extension that shows within the Google Play web interface the number of trackers found in one app and allow to compare with similar apps. And in the recent light of the Cambridge Analytica data harvesting story, I thought that this tool might be of interest to the PH community. Are you ready to see how deep the rabbit hole goes?

@valereonmobile so what traders does Google translate or WhatsApp have. Meaning what each tracker does or tracks. I know a google search will identify the trackers. Just figured there might be a description of each.

@ayush_chandra Thank you :) Unfortunately iOS is DRM locked, so such a tool for iOS is illegal (huge fine and jail and all :/). Anyway as most of the trackers also have iOS compatible SDKs, they might be as well be embedded in iOS apps. Notice that android is particularly open bar for trackers, a privacy nightmare.
