Which features are included in Privacy Friendly Net Monitor?

The connection information includes local and remote socket information along with resolved hostnames and a protocol evaluation based on well-known ports. Known unencrypted and encrypted protocols are automatically marked. A detailed mode offers additional technical information of the connections.

Server validation is an automatic analysis of the remote servers TLS implementation. Remote servers with a resolved hostname are tested automatically when the connection protocol is known for using TLS encryption. The analysis is performed by SSL Labs API (more info: and the associated service. The remote server's implementation quality is shown in grades A+ (best) to F (worst), or is displayed as T (trust issues). To perform the validation Net Monitor connects to Qualys SSL Labs via the Internet. If you do not want this connection, please deactivate server validation in the settings.

What makes Privacy Friendly Net Monitor different from other apps?

  1. Minimal permissions
    Privacy Friendly Net Monitor does not require any permission for scanning active connections. The Certificate Validation feature requires the Internet permission to request server test results from Qualys SSL Labs API. In case you do not want a connection to Qualys SSL Labs, please deactivate server validation in the settings.
  2. No rooted device required
    Most of apps with a similar functionality require a so called "rooted" device. This means that extended user rights are activated on the device. This activation results in a loss of warranty. Privacy Friendly Net Monitor does not require a rooted device.
  3. No advertisement
    Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising and also shortens battery life.
