The CarrierIQ software has alarmed all smartphone owners. The app apparently logs information of your phone activity and sends it to wireless carriers. The software is alarming because it is hidden and operates without your approval. To check whether or not your Android smartphone has been affected by the software you can use an app called Voodoo Carrier IQ Detector.
Voodoo Carrier IQ Detector is a free to use smartphone application for Android devices. The app is sized at 33 KB, and is compatible with Android versions 2.1 or later. The app helps you easily find out if your phone has the CarrierIQ rootkit with a fair degree of accuracy. So far the app does not assist you in removing the CarrierIQ software – the app is for detection only. But detection alone can help a great deal in deciding whether or not to use your phone cautiously.
