The report also includes details of the activity. the network activity of each application, the network activity of the website, and the domains most frequently contacted”.

All exploits of privacy apps will be recorded and detailed in the Application Security Report. Specifically, the report is divided into 4 different sections:
- Sensors and data access: apps that accessed data or sensors in the last 7 days.
- Application network activity: applications that contacted domains in the last 7 days.
- Site network activity: sites contacting domains in the last 7 days.
- Most contacted domains: domains (domains) contacted by one or more apps or websites in the last 7 days.
And for each specific category, readers can click on each app, website, or domain to see a detailed report on the time and activity of accessing privacy.
