Privacy in Apps

Your apps are awake when you’re not.

I analyzed some apps and where they send your data. An app may send your data when it is active, receives a notification, or when it uses background services (e.g. Background App Refresh on iOS). Data is collected by starting the app, and analyzing the traffic to and from the device.

Bolded apps are those that handle financial and sensitive personal information. Location data and person-to-person communications are excluded from this category.
