Smartphone apps often transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without the user's knowledge. To address this issue, we present PrivacyProxy, a system that monitors outbound network traffic and generates app-specific signatures to represent privacy sensitive data being shared, all without any modifications to the OS. We use a crowdsourcing based approach to detect likely PII in an adaptive and scalable manner by anonymously combining signatures from different users of the same app. Our… Expand
