Huge number of tracking protection counter


I just cecked the Device section in the sense app and wondering about the traf.prot. numbers.

Ipads arround 1K, no heavy websurfing

My Android Tab 100K, daily use

My Android Phone, 710k, Company Phone, daily use


My doughters (11yr) Phone Shows > 6.000.000 

- no data usage outside home wifi 

- WhatsApp, Musicaly, snapchat and 3 games installed


How can I dive deeper into this? What can create such heavy numbers? Or is this normal? Malware scan negative. 

Maybe someone has aber hint for me. 

Thanks in advance 

Regards Bert

    6 million sounds like a lot of hits, there could be an application / game on the phone that triggers them, especially if the applications are funded by advertisements.


    We don't have any user accessible management controls / visualization for tracking yet, but we have some ideas in our roadmap on improvements as this is a topic that keeps coming up in user feedback.

  • Everything has tracking in today's web.

    Some more than others, usually when the service is free there are more tracking and analytics because you or rather in this case youe daughter/daughter's data is the product which they sell foward.

    I would say all is normal since your daughter probably uses a lot more services like thay than you.

    Thanks once again.
