How to find out what apps access your data.
We’ve seen services like Clueful catalog apps that can access our private information, and many of us are familiar with tweaks like Protect My Privacy and Firewall iP that attempt to keep our data secure. But what are our leaky apps actually doing, and what are the real risks?
Personally I'm not a fan of iFunBox (I prefer iExplorer) but you gotta admit, the program has a lot of cool features. This one, the App Inspection Reports, provide a thorough list of any app’s capabilities. According to the developer’s website, they’ve focused on APIs which may leak your private information, consume carrier data, and provide an annoying experience.
Here is a brief guide to accessing iFunBox’s App Inspection tool on Mac or PC:
- Open iFunBox, and select the ‘iFunBox classic’ tab to access the file browser.
- If it’s not already connected, plug your iOS device into your computer.
- Next select your device through iFunbox, then open User Applications for a list of your apps.
- Right click on an app you want to inspect, and select ‘App Inspection’ from the right-click menu.
- At this point, iFunBox should generate an App Inspection Report.
