MobileScope’s Been Acquired

I am excited to announce that MobileScope has been acquired by Evidon.

I co-developed MobileScope with David Campbell and Aldo Cortesi so that individuals could see and control the data their smartphones were sharing. It was a labor of love, and this sale will make MobileScope available to a broader audience. You can follow the developments here at or more about the sale here.

I’ll still be continuing my life as an independent researcher/consultant but am super excited that there’s a developing market for privacy technologies.
