This article covers how to see number of trackers of any Android app on Play Store. You can see how many services are there that track you behind an app. An app may require sign up, access to location, and other permissions. Such items are tracked by the app as well as other services on which the app depends. The number of trackers and list of all such trackers is provided.
For this, I have covered a free Chrome extension, known as “Exodify“. This extension displays the number of trackers for each app within the Play Store as well as the app page. To see the list of all trackers for an individual app, you can take the help of its pop-up menu.
In the screenshot above, you can see that the extension is showing the number of trackers for an app directly on its page. This extension uses Exodus Privacy service to show the data. You can also jump to full report page related to a particular tracker.
How to See Number of Trackers of Any Android App on Play Store?
Open the homepage of this Chrome extension and then install it. It is also available for Firefox.
When the extension is installed, you need to visit Google Play Store. After that, the extension will start working automatically. It will add a badge on the thumbnail of each Android app which shows the number of trackers.
To view the list of trackers for an individual app, open the app page. After doing that, click on the icon of this extension. It will open a pop-up. In that pop-up, you can see the list showing the name of each tracker. Just next to the name of each tracker, it provides “info” link.
You can click on that link and it will open the report page of that tracker, which is provided by Exodus Privacy. There you can see detection rules for that tracker and the list of other apps on which that tracker is available.
Did you know you can also use Chrome extension without Google integration?
While installing some Android app, you are able to see the permissions needed by that app, but the number of trackers is not provided. This extension serves that purpose pretty well. You just need to install it and open an Android app page to see the number of tracks of that app. And the extension pop-up will show the name of all the trackers.
