Kyiv-based MacPaw launched SpyBuster for iOS

Ukrainian MacPaw team brings the iOS version of the anti-spying tool SpyBuster. Designed to spot apps that originate from or connect to servers in Russia or Belarus, SpyBuster helps identify and remove unwanted connections on your iPhone.

  • SpyBuster does two jobs — scans your device for installed apps with known connections with Russia or Belarus and monitors if data is being sent to Russian or Belarussian servers when the app is in use.
  • SpyBuster premiered as a macOS tool in March of 2022. By June, it debuted as a Chrome extension that alerts users to suspicious website connections and visualizes them on a map.
  • The Static Analysis functionality of SpyBuster also got added to CleanMyMac X as part of its Uninstaller module.

A look at SpyBuster features:

  1. SpyBuster for iOS scans your iPhone for potentially unwanted apps and alerts you if any are found. The tool lets you know exactly why a flagged app is suspicious and explains how to delete the app from your iPhone.
  2. Scanning for threats: Once you launch SpyBuster on your iPhone, it examines executable code and resources of applications on your device for evidence of a potential unwanted relation.
  3. Alerts about suspicious apps: When the scan is done, you will see a list of apps that might be unwanted on your device, if there are any.
  4. Adjusting detection level: You can adjust your detection level between Min and Max in SpyBuster.
