Antivirus Security TinyCheck is an open source tool that allows you to detect the presence of stalkerware on your smartphone, analyzing the outgoing WiFi traffic.
TinyCheck is an open source tool that allows you to detect the presence of stalkerware on your smartphone. Kaspersky has unveiled a new portal that provides all the information on how it works. The tool detects the presence of spy software by analyzing network traffic. For added protection, however, it is preferable to install a complete suite with antivirus, firewall and VPN, such as McAfee Total Protection. TinyCheck with Raspberry Pi Stalkerware is a spyware used primarily to spy on the private lives of spouses or partners (current or former). The software can record everything from phone calls to geographic location. All information is sent to the stalkerware controller, so you can spot suspicious network traffic with TinyCheck. The tool does not have to be installed on the smartphone, as it works on the Raspberry Pi. TinyCheck scans wiFi traffic out of your smartphone and identifies the link with known sources, including servers used by spyware. The user can then download a detailed report to a USB pen drive. The tool guarantees privacy because it does not read emails or SMS and all data is stored on the device (nothing is sent to Kaspersky's servers). As for the detection capabilities, TinyCheck is considered a level 1 tool. For added protection, you need to install an antivirus or VPN (level 2). Level 3 is only reached by the tools used by the police for forensic analysis. The TinyCheck code is available on GitHub.
