Technical Details

TrackPlus.A is a tracking tool that can be used to locate a device. It sends out the device's International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number to a remote server, and has a web portal to keep track of the device's location.

Once installed, TrackPlus.A does not place an icon on the application menu but appears as a transparent widget on the device.

While apps with such behavior may be legitimately used by the device's authorized user, they are classified by security programs as riskware because in the hands of unauthorized users, they can also be used to cause damage to the user's data or the device.

If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to keep it installed on your device.
