ViaProtect Shows You Where Your Smartphone Data Is Being Sent

Android: Your phone communicates with a lot of people when you’re not looking. If you’d like to watch the watchers, viaProtect monitors your connections and provides a report of who your phone is communicating with and how secure that connection is.

The app monitors real-time traffic, so you’ll need to leave viaProtect on in the background to get some amount of data to analyse first. The app can provide you with a list of organisations your phone is speaking to (unsurprisingly, Google tends to top the list), what countries that data’s going to, and how much of your traffic is encrypted along the way.
