# ExodusPrivacy NEW database (

Checks apps for code signatures of known trackers (provided by Exodus). Also can list all classes for launchable (via the app drawer) packages.

Can be used against any APK:

  • installed: via an app manager,
  • downloaded: via any file manager (long press and open with ClassyShark3xodus),
  • launchable installed: via the first screen list (long press to list all classes, including obfuscated ones).

Note: doesn't work on odexed/system packages (it's a work-in-progress).

Finally, the app doesn't sync or connect to the Internet and thus cannot sneak on end users.

The app is updated when Exodus updates their list of trackers: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/api/trackers

ClassyShark3xodus is based on Google's ClassyShark: https://github.com/google/android-classyshark
