Verizon’s Android WiFi Remote App is Some Shady Shit

July 7th, 2012 4:04pm Leave a comment

I was working on an Android app and using the debugger which lists every event that goes on on my phone and I noticed a process called com.verizon.android.wifios. This process belongs to Verizon FiOS Mobile Remote, which is a remote replacement and DVR manager for FiOS TV.

Every time I killed it from the debugger, it would re-launch. I also noticed it has this thing called vzAnalytics, which looks like it reports phone stats back to them. The best part is that Verizon lied about the email address they provided in the market. I emailed it and it bounced. Assholes. I might uninstall this
