The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for RouterCheck. It covers the use of the RouterCheck application, RouterCheck server, RouterCheck support server, and the RouterCheck website.
Information collected from application users is kept to an absolute minimum. Sericon Technology Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected by the application. We will not sell, share, rent or release this information to any marketers, advertisers or other third parties.
Information We Collect
RouterCheck does not collect any personal information from its users such as names or email addresses. Furthermore, RouterCheck does not ask for any Android permissions that would enable it to access this information.
RouterCheck collects information about the router and network that you request to run a check on. This information may include but is not limited to the network’s IP address, SSID, open ports, router model information and DNS server settings.
Network information will be obtained by querying the router from the RouterCheck application as well as from the RouterCheck server running in the cloud.
RouterCheck may actively query the router for known vulnerabilities.
RouterCheck may query the router to try to determine the administrator password to see whether it is secure or not. This is done by attempting to log in as an administrator using known default passwords as well as common passwords that hackers typically try (e.g. 123456, qwerty).
RouterCheck will not modify your router or its settings.
The information that RouterCheck collects will be reported back to you along with recommendations for fixing any problems that it finds.
Location Services (GPS)
RouterCheck may collect and store information about your location if you enable your mobile device to send us location information. You may be able to change the settings on your computer or mobile device to prevent it from providing us with such information.
Location information is aggregated in order to provide better service to you. Hackers sometimes attack large numbers of routers and networks in the same country in a coordinated attack. RouterCheck uses geographical information to help determine whether this is happening.
Application Usage Information
RouterCheck may collect information about how you use our product. This collection may be done by a third-party system.
Application usage information is collected to help us find problems with the RouterCheck Application. It’s also used to help us better understand our customers needs so that we can provide a better product.
How We Protect Your Information
No identifying information is ever stored in our system. We store only information for analysis to determine attack patterns.
During a check, information is shared between the RouterCheck application and the RouterCheck server. This data is sent over an encrypted channel to protect it during transmission.
We do not share specific information with third parties. These parties can access only information aggregated from mutiple users. However, we may share information gathered if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request.
Sericon Technology Inc. reserves all rights and copyrights the site text, site images, site code, content, and usage of RouterCheck. All trademarks are property of their respective companies.
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use RouterCheck after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or get your consent as required by law.
