iOS Review on May 23, 2020
Shein is a "fast-fashion" app that has been exploding in popularity. It uses many "tech-giant" trackers, but also uses some trackers ("Scarab Research") that we could not find any information on, which is pretty sketchy.
Shein's Privacy Rating is C. We found 6 different third-party trackers in the Shein app, and there were 208 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
How was tracker testing done?
Tested using Lockdown v0.3.8
What was done during the test?
208 attempts in three minutes: install app, sign up, open item details, put item in cart, check out.
How many tracking attempts each time the app is opened?
Did user give consent to tracking before tracking started?
No, tracking begins during app installation and after app launch, before any consent is given.
