Hack your favorite Android app Feedback

In this workshop, we will decompile/reverse engineer/unpin your favorite Android app.

This will allow us to see the (scary) amount of background traffic being collected, find the secret endpoints used by the app, etc

The workshop will start with an introduction to downloading APKs, decompiling APK, hooking and changing functions in the app. The workshop will run as a self-help workshop, meaning that you can pick any app to work on, but if multiple people pick the same app then let's help each other :)

Protip: don't pick TikTok/SnapChat/[popular gaming app] - those are well protected and not super fun to take apart. Instead go for a local weather/sound/QR/Yoga app.

If possible bring your (old) rooted Android phone (you can also use an emulator, but not all apps will work properly in that)
