SpyBuster premiered as a macOS tool in March when Russian forces hacked state digital systems and began spreading disinformation following their invasion of Ukraine.

Designed to spot apps that originate from or connect to servers in Russia or Belarus, SpyBuster helps identify and remove unwanted connections on your devices.

With SpyBuster for iOS, you can quickly weed out apps and websites that may not meet your security requirements on your iPhones and iPads.

The app scans your iOS device for potentially unwanted apps and alerts you if any are found. The tool lets you know exactly why a flagged app is suspicious and explains how to delete the app from your iPhone or iPad.

  • Once you launch SpyBuster on your iPhone, it examines executable code and resources of applications on your device for evidence of a potential unwanted relation.
  • When the scan is done, you will see a list of apps that might be unwanted on your device, if there are any.
  • Tap on each to view detailed reasons for suspicion (e.g., ru present in app bundle ID) and instructions on how to delete the app from your iPhone.
