Title: IoT Inspector - by Princeton
Post by: jdaniele on November 29, 2019, 09:57:04 AM
Wasn't exactly sure which section to post in. Princeton university students made a tool to see what's "spying" on you.

Hope fully they make it for other OS soon. Honestly, not sure why it was made for macOS first but my guess was for the smaller audience or the team that made it just liked that OS and want to see if people even caught on.

I'm guessing it scans the computer or network traffic and builds a list. I know Firefox now tracks a list of all the items that tack you so you can see trends built right into the browser itself.
