    Developer Chainfire of SuperSU and Mobile Odin app fame brings us an all new app that sets out to protect you from prying eyes. The app description begins with a creepy but true statement "You are being watched." With the NSA and other various agencies watching your every move it is clear that nothing is private in the digital age. Apparently your phone broadcast information even when your wifi is turned off. This information can be grabbed by retailers, crooks, government and hackers to track repeated visits to a place, as well as your every move in an area under surveillance. Pry-Fi protects you by preventing your device from announcing all the networks it knows to the outside world while still allowing for background scanning and auto connection to networks. While not connected to a network your MAC will be psuedo-randomized following a pattern that makes trackers think you are a real person, put won't encounter your MAC address again. This slowly poisons their their tracking database with useless information. This app does much more to protect you. Head to the play link below for more information.

    Interesting. The Play store says that it is only available for my Transformer and Nexus tablets. My Note II is grayed out as is my wife's phone.
