    Hi Folks,

    Is the 'Exodus' spyware referenced in post #3 above the same as the Exodus Privacy app for Android? I have this installed on my phone and it wasn't detected as suspicious by Sophos Intercept X, which I also have installed on my phone.

    Hi Folks,

    I have been using Exodus Privacy on my Android devices since posting above. I use it whenever installing new apps and more. This is what I'm referring to:

    https://exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/

    It lists trackers and permissions for each installed app.
