iOS/Android Privacy: – see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser · Felix Krause

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/31

Especially on Archive, but also on Android and other mobile operating systems, mobile apps can have their in-app browsers to circumvent the OS provided wrapper around the system browser.

Most of those in-app browsers are in social media applications that go to great length to keep their users inside a walled garden.

The site [Wayback/Archive] helps checking how severely information is leaked through the in-app browser as those potentially have a lot of control. TikTok is worst capturing all input including credentials like user names and passwords.

Google has stopped (Dutch: Google is gestopt) on older Anrdoid devices

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/12

I got the Dutch message “Google is gestopt” on an older Android device which translates to the below English error message “Google has stopped”.

Below is the solution based on [WayBack] Google is stopped – OnePlus Community

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. In “Settings” go to “Apps”
  3. In the application list, browse to “Google”
  4. Uninstall all updates (sometimes this is under the hamburger or 3-dot icon)
  5. Confirm
  6. Start the Google Play Store
  7. Update the “Google” application

Android: Island – app freezing, privacy protection, parallel accounts

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/23

Requires admin privileges, but can be worth your effort: [WayBack] [APP][5.0+][BETA] Island – app freezing, pri… | Android Development and Hacking

“Island” is a sandbox environment to clone selected apps and isolate them from accessing your personal data outside the sandbox (including call logs, contacts, photos and etc) even if related permissions are granted. Device-bound data is still accessible (SMS, IMEI and etc).
Isolated app can be frozen on demand, with launcher icon vanish and its background behaviors completely blocked.
