If you suspect an app or browser extension, try InAppBrowser to see if it’s doing anything suspicious. That’s it:
- on the move [iOS/Android]: Open the application you want to test and load inappbrowser.com in the app’s built-in web browser. An easy way to do this is to send yourself the link in a message, comment or post.Alternatively, open a website link in the app (any web link will work) and go to https://inappbrowser.com.
- On the desktop: To test websites and browser extensions on desktop, open your favorite browser and go to inappbrowser.com.
These readings can help you spot possible malicious behavior, but there are a few caveats to mention.
If you find that an app might be tracking you and want to stop it, you have a few options. The best solution is to delete the app. If it’s not on your phone, it can’t track you.
