This tool determines whether in-app browsers are tracking you.
When you open links in Instagram, TikTok, and other apps, you put your personal information at risk.
If you’re suspicious of an app or browser extension, try InAppBrowser to see if it’s up to no good. Here’s how it’s done:
On a mobile device [iOS/Android], launch the app you want to test and navigate to inappbrowser.com via the app’s built-in web browser. Sending the link to yourself in a message, comment, or post is a simple way to accomplish this. Alternatively, open a website link in the app (any web link will do), then navigate to https://inappbrowser.com.
On desktop: Open your preferred browser and navigate to inappbrowser.com to test websites and browser extensions.
These readouts can assist you in detecting potentially malicious behaviour, but there are a few caveats to be aware of.
If you discover that an app is tracking you and want to stop it, you have a few options. The best option is to uninstall the app. It cannot track you if it is not on your phone.
