“Can I trust app X?”
Can you trust the company/organisation/people who make it? (What have they done in the past/are doing now?)
Can you trust their business model? (How/when do they make money?)
Is it open source?
Is it decentralised?
If yes to all, yes. Otherwise no.
@kravietz @aral Does the output of "python exodus_analyze.py $APK_file" expose any spyware? Is the app even available outside of the #walledgarden of #Google #Playstore?
@aral @kravietz Is the app's bug tracker exclusively on MS #Github or #Gitlab? If so, bug reports are suppressed by hostility toward #Tor users trying to file bug reports. Apps that hinder bug reporting are not trustworthy.
