Monitoring Information Sent to the Outside (Trying to)

Asked 3 months ago, Updated 3 months ago, 14 views

I have a question about both PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and smartphone (iOS, Android). Can I check the information I sent to the outside world or check the contents of what I'm going to send and block it if necessary?

In that case, is there a situation where you can't monitor the contents because it's encrypted?

Software that "reviews the information you send to the outside world or checks the contents of what you are about to send and blocks it as needed" is also called security software.

Because it is difficult to obtain detailed information or customize it yourself, you use packet acquisition and protocol analysis software such as Wireshark in such cases.Wireshark is for PCs, but there is also software for smartphones.

If the packet is retrieved, it cannot be monitored if it is encrypted.In the case of HTTPS, you can force it through a proxy server to decrypt and monitor its contents.The software that does this is commercial, but Charles is available.
