Description


Wi-Fi Privacy Police prevents your smartphone or tablet from leaking privacy sensitive information via Wi-Fi networks. It does this in two ways:

* It prevents your smartphone from sending out the names of Wi-Fi networks it wants to connect to over the air. This makes sure that other people in your surroundings can not see the networks you've connecte to, and the places you've visited.

* If your smartphone encounters an unknown access point with a known name (for example, a malicious access point pretending to be your home network), it asks whether you trust this access point before connecting. This makes sure that other people are not able to steal your data.

Wi-Fi Privacy Police does not have any negative impact on your battery. In fact, you may see your battery life increase by using this app.

View our short paper at https://brambonne.com/docs/bonne14sasquatchprivacypolice.pdf or our slightly longer paper at https://brambonne.com/docs/bonne14sasquatch.pdf for more technical information.

Wi-Fi Privacy Police is an app developed at the Expertise Center for Digital Media, a research institute of UHasselt. It is open source, with its source code being publicly available at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice .

A lot of effort went into making this app work flawlessly. If you, however, run into any problems when using this app, nor the app developers, nor the UHasselt take responsibility. You are encouraged to report any issues at uhasselt.edm.developer@gmail.com or via GitHub at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice/issues/new ; we will try to fix them as soon as possible.

PrivacyPolice now requires the location permission to run. This is because Android 6.0 does not allow access to the list of Wi-Fi networks without this location. PrivacyPolice will *never* collect your information. Please consult the source code at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice if you have any doubts.

Note to those using CyanogenMod: make sure that Privacy Guard is not blocking access to Wi-Fi Privacy Police, as it will then not be able to see the available networks. This will cause Wi-Fi Privacy Police to disable access to all of them.

Should you have any other questions about the app, feel free to drop by on reddit (either at http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/2uyw50/wifi_privacypolice_prevents_your_smartphone_or/ or at http://www.reddit.com/r/androidapps/comments/2u2ww0/dev_wifi_privacypolice_prevents_your_smartphone/) to see our FAQ and/or pose your own question.

Permissions
android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
Allows an application to access coarse (e.g., Cell-ID, WiFi) location.
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE
Allows applications to access information about networks
android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE
Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE
Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED
Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
