Detekt - Tool To Resist Surveillance

Detekt is a free tool that can detect sophisticated monitoring programs such as, FinFisher a.k.a FinSpy and Hacking Team RCS. This tool doesn't guarantee detection of all spyware, so don't consider this as an alternative to the anti-virus/anti-spyware software. It was mainly developed to protect the human rights defenders and journalists from the surveillance, but now it is much popular and used by almost every internet user.


FinSpy and Hacking Team RCS are the most sophisticated monitoring programs designed to spy on individuals and organizations. These two Spywares are capable of many things including monitoring of encrypted communications.
If you want to know more about these programs, refer the following documents:

So, if you suspect you are at risk of surveillance, use Detekt to scan your computer for monitoring programs.

Remember: Detekt is provided without warranties or guarantees of any kind.

Anyway, today I'm going to give you a step by step guide on how to use Detekt:


1. Download Detekt. Then disconnect your computer from the internet.
