Carrier IQ Sensor

Carrier IQ Sensor


Want to know whether or not your device has the Carrier IQ software? The Carrier IQ Sensor app from innoPath is here to help. In mere seconds, our app will detect the presence or absence of Carrier IQ on your device and let you know accordingly.

As mobile subscribers, each one of us will have to wait and see how the Carrier IQ situation plays out. The Carrier IQ software has been shown to record the URLs that are being visited (including for HTTPS resources), but it is not yet clear how that information is being used. That said, security researchers agree that consumers need to be able to opt-out of any sort of Carrier IQ data collection.

For now, we have some choices: allow Carrier IQ to run on our phones with our full awareness, or root our phones and remove the Carrier IQ software ourselves. That latter option is not for the average user; but if you know exactly what you are doing, and are willing to take the risk, there are plenty of guides online to assist you with the process.

Contact Your Carrier
The concerned consumer has one more course of action: contact your wireless carrier or device manufacturer and ask that a firmware update be provided as soon as possible. Such an update could remove the Carrier IQ software altogether, or make its activity on your device opt-in. Apple has already committed to such an update; Android vendors may now choose to follow suit.

Notes
This application does not uninstall the Carrier IQ software from your device. Only a firmware update from your carrier can do that safely.
If you have already attempted to remove Carrier IQ software from your device, our app may still report its presence.

False-positive T-Mobile instructs users to disable Carrier IQ in Settings -> Back up and reset -> Collect diagnostics -> Uncheck "Allow Diagnostics". I did this, but Carrier IQ Detector still says that Carrier IQ is present. It may be present, but it should be dormant as a result of disabling the T-Mobile setting. Specs: * Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich * Samsung Galaxy S III SGH-T999 * T-Mobile
