- The creator of PowerDNS created an app that tells you whenever your computer sends data to Google.
- The app is called Googerteller.
- You can install it for free, but the app only works on Linux-based operating systems.
If you have a Linux-based operating system, want to know if Google is tracking your data, and don’t mind incessant beeping, then the Googerteller is the app for you.
Created by developer Bert Hubert, the Googerteller is an app that’s designed to beep every time your computer sends data to Google. If his name sounds familiar, it may be because he is the creator of PowerDNS, a widely used open-source DNS server program. As a privacy advocate, Hubert created the Googerteller to understand what type of data is sent to Google, when it’s sent, and where it happens.
