Over 500 commonly used apps, infecting hundreds of millions of phones all over the world, have an SDK built into them created by a company called Anomaly Six. According to the Wallstreet Journal this company is selling all the location data they’ve collected to the US Government.

This kind of surveillance is especially concerning since its almost never disclosed in the app’s Privacy Policy.

Third party SDKs and APIs installed in commonly used apps was always an issue. Sometimes its incredibly valuable when there is a synergy between two services online, but most of the time it’s just used for collecting data.

Our VPN can help mitigate your phone from connecting to well known trackers and malware publishers, even if they try to do so through a backdoor in common apps.
