Mobile app can Detect if Someone Is Spying on You

Posted by M2Software Solutions Solutions Pvt. Ltd | 23:17 Categories: , ,

Hello Everyone..!!!

A new mobile app called SnoopSnitch is able to  detect International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) catchers by keeping a tab if someone is spying on you.
IMSI catchers are eavesdropping devices used for intercepting mobile phone traffic and tracking the movement of smartphone users, media reports said.

A massive security flaw is recently revealed by Security experts  that could let hackers listen in on private calls and read text messages on mobile networks.

One way in which such hackers get access to such information is by using IMSI catchers or 'stingrays'.

SnoopSnitch can detect IMSI catchers and warn smartphone users if their devices are giving up their personal information and connecting to them.
The app scans for signals that indicate a switch from a legitimate tower to a 'stingray', where information may be being collected.

The app currently works with Android handsets that have Qualcomm chips inside such as Sony and Samsung Galaxy models.
