Food-Tracker (PFA)

Allows tracking of your daily calorie consumption
Privacy Friendly Food Tracker allows tracking your daily calorie consumption.
To do this, you can enter all your consumed food and drink as well as its weight.
The app will then calculate the total daily calorie consumption. The app also allows
an analysis of calorie consumption over a larger timeframe such as weeks
or months.

What functionality does this app include?
- Personalization through the creation of your own products
- Calculation of the total calorie count for the day
- Creation of statistics and graphs that show total and average calorie intake over a week or a month
- Calendar overview to quickly show daily overviews
- Encryption of data on the device
- Online search to find products quickly and easily

This app belongs to the group of Privacy Friendly Apps developed
by the research group SECUSO at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. You can find more information at https://secuso.org/pfa.

This food tracker does not collect any information about its users. The database
is encrypted to guarantee absolute privacy. Also this app does not require any dangerous permissions from the user. Only internet access is needed for
the search function. Additionally, this food tracker does not include any
tracking or any advertisements at all. This increases battery lifetime and reduces or eliminates data usage by this app.

Please note that the online search requests information from the OpenFoodFacts
database. This would theoretically allow the database to track a users nutritional
habits. For absolute privacy it is therefore recommended to not use the online
search feature (The request is not triggered until the 'search' button is pressed).
The app also works without an internet connection.
