Have you ever wondered what applications are doing with all those permissions they ask for? This app seeks to help users better understand the privacy and security implications of the software they install. We analyze applications offline in order to detect the possible actions written into the application source code, then display a summary of our findings to the user.

Apps with existing profiles will show up in green, whereas those not yet analyzed will show up in gray. We are in the process of analyzing all of the available free apps on the market, but we will give priority to applications requested by users of AppProfiles, so please check back in a few hours if you don't see an application you're interested in. (Note that we do not provide information about paid apps or apps not downloaded through the Android Market.)

You also have the option to indicate what app behaviors you don't like by toggling the face next to each action, or indicate if you are uncomfortable with an app's behavior, then pressing "Submit" to upload your feedback. We encourage you to do so as it helps make the app more effective as well as helping us with our research.

We are researchers at the University of Michigan and have no commercial interests in this app, and use the Internet permission only to deliver summaries to your phone and allow you to submit feedback. We track individual feedback submissions via a large, random number generated on your phone (which is not derived from any personally identifiable information in any way). You can opt out of this by unchecking the relevant checkbox on the feedback page, or alternately by not submitting feedback.

If you have any further questions about any of the applications, feel free to contact us.

Most iritating app I have. Interrupts anything on every update. Helps my boot up take 5 min. For what it does not worth the agrivation. Also 90% of apps can't figure out. Not ready for prime time.

Doesn't work Crashes on open and doesn't even offer a report crash option.

Love the idea... ...but it won't open successfully on my Galaxy Note 2 - just crashes.

Useless for Amazon Appstore Works great and very useful for the apps, but it is basically useless for apps purchased through the Amazon Appstore. When updating these apps, I have to bear through the blank popups bearing no info.

A Google User

Needs interface work Doesn't list apps alphabetically, and has no search or useful icons on the main screen. Does give nice descriptions, for the apps in its database anyway. No good on paid apps or Amazon FAOTDs.

A Google User

No apps found No single app which I download, after installed this app, is found. Interrupt after every update.

A Google User

Pops up for every app during auto update

A Google User

Does nothing Every app I download has no information. Even estrong file manager with 10,000,000 downloads has no profile. Also I hate it that it interrupts every single installation.

Great idea! Love the idea behind this! Would love if there was also a way to look up apps without having to install them first.

A Google User

Wow, this is a very useful app!!!

Interesting project I like the app, user interface is very simple. It can only get better as more apps are analyzed. Good project.
