Hello friends, do you want to find out if someone is spying on you? This is now possible with a new app called SnoopSnitch. The app uses radio signals to locate nearby tracking devices. The concerned company claims that it can detect IMSI - International Mobile Subscriber Identity catchers by keeping a tab if someone is spying on you. SnoopSnitch app asserts that it could detect so-called IMSI catchers or 'stingrays'.
The newly launched app scans for signals that indicate a switch from a legitimate tower to a 'stingray', where information are being collected. SnoopSnitch currently works only with rooted Android handsets that have Qualcomm chips inside, but its makers are developing more options. The app is said to run effectively on Sony and Samsung galaxy mobiles. Security experts recently revealed a massive security flaw that could let hackers listen in on private calls and read text messages on mobile networks.The only way a hacker can get access to such information is through the use of IMSI catchers or 'stingrays'.
Now you may want to know what exactly are IMSI Catchers? IMSI catchers are eavesdropping devices for intercepting mobile phone traffic and tracking the movement of mobile phone users and are known as ‘stingrays’. A ‘fake’ mobile tower acts between the target smartphone and service provider’s real towers. Law-enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, use stingrays in investigations, and a recent informal survey revealed more than a dozen IMSI catchers spread across the United States.
