This Antifeature is applied to apps that track you and/or report your activity to somewhere, either without your permission or by default (i.e. you'd have to actively seek out an option to disable it).
Examples of where this Antifeature might be applied:
- Sending crash reports without your knowledge or permission
- Checking for updates without your knowledge or permission
Examples of where it would not be applied - any of the above, if the functionality is opt-in (i.e. you are asked before it happens) or disabled by default.
Note that frequently app tracking is implemented using proprietary software, e.g. Google Analytics or Flurry. Apps containing these proprietary libraries will not be found in the F-Droid repo.
