The Carrier IQ controversy is raging on, with many users flabbergasted by the fact that an app they cannot control or uninstall may be recording their keystrokes and accessing their messages and other data.
It’s hard to even find out if your phone has Carrier IQ installed, but now an Android developer created an app that does exactly that.
Voodoo Carrier IQ detector is an Android app, and it’s currently available for free on the Android Market.
The app’s goal is to make Carrier IQ detection “as easy as possible,” but it is at this time unfinished. The author, supercurio, claims the results are “not reliable yet,” but promises updates in the very near future, so stay tuned.
Furthermore, the app is open source, which means other developers might be looking at the code and creating their versions of the app soon.
