(formerly Sophos Mobile Security)
When an application is downloaded on a device or the user initiates a check of all installed applications on an Android device, Sophos Intercept X for Mobile sends queries to our cloud infrastructure in order to validate the reputation of the applications. Each query contains a fingerprint generated from the Android application (the APK file) under investigation.
A unique device identifier is also generated locally on each mobile device during installation of Sophos Intercept X for Mobile. We do not associate this identifier with any personal data. Periodically the product sends statistical feedback packets to us, including the unique device identifier and service performance information.
We may collect different types of information about your location, including general information (for example IP address or ZIP code) and more specific information (for example GPS-based functionality on mobile devices when used to access a Site, product, or service). Sophos Intercept X does not specifically access or track any actual device location details, but it uses the background Location permission to detect the name of the Wi-Fi network to which a user is connected.
Sophos Intercept X for Mobile does not collect credit card or other payment information from users.
