More than 11 million users of network have undergone shadowing


Developers of the platform for blocking of the advertizing AdGuard have found several mobile applications and expansions for browsers which collect data on millions of users. Researchers have reported about it on the website. Experts have distinguished ten utilities for increase in speed of smartphones and blocking of advertizing in browsers from dangerous applications. All programs belong to one developer Big Star Labs who uses different accounts in app stores. The problem is that everything ON collects personal data about owners of smartphones and computers, however in the description of applications it is told only about the depersonalized information. Experts have explained that programs quite often collected all history of viewings and not anonymous URL addresses allowing the third parties to define the identity of the user and data on his habits. In one case the expansion blocking pop-up windows collected data from all pages which were visited by the user even if on them there was no advertizing. Besides, programs often use tactics of malicious software: for example, the profile of remote management over the device suggests the user to install the application for iOS. In AdGuard have noted that similar practice contradicts politicians of all app stores and expansions, however utilities still are in open access. In the total amount of the program spies more than 11 million users of network have already downloaded. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
