We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on apuppet.org blog posts.

Sensitive permissions in the mobile app
In order to function properly, the aPuppet mobile app asks your permission to access sensitive data. These permissions are used to generate and transmit the content data (pictures, audio content, video content, files) between your mobile device and a person controlling your device. The aPuppet server acts as a gateway, it is not aware of the content data and doesn’t store it in any way.
The mobile app offers you the option to share your screen and interact with your device remotely. Keep in mind that the content of your mobile device screen may contain personal and sensitive data which may become available to the controlling party. This content is protected by transient session IDs and PIN codes; keep those values safe and make sure they are being sent to an authorized party.
Accessibility services. The mobile app uses Accessibility services to simulate gestures on the demand of a remote peer. This permission is REQUIRED for the proper function of the mobile application.
Screen sharing. The mobile app requests the permission of screen sharing each time the app starts the remote session. This permission is used to retrieve the screen content and is REQUIRED for the proper function of the mobile application.
Draw overlays. The permission to draw overlays is OPTIONAL but improves the user experience. It generates a “keep-alive” traffic improving the screencast quality and shows a flashing dot indicating the sharing of your mobile device screen.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, we use “Cookies”, similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.
