How to find out if the Carrier IQ application is on my smart phone

  geek84 16:00 PM 04 Feb 12

Hi Folks

Some of you may know that there is an application called Carrier IQ which is stored under a few 'layers' on some smart phones, which detects everything you do.

How can I find out if this is stored on my phone? If it is, then can I take any action in terms of privacy laws etc?

Hi Mistoffelees

Thanks for your response.

I haven't tried removing it yet because I'm not very technically minded. It just seems to be a complicated process!!

Anyway, when (and if) I manage to detect the Carrier IQ on my phone, can I take any action in terms of privacy laws etc?
