Today in this webbed world, smartphones have conquered a major part in human’s life. An android application is an assemblage of Java which is edited from the source code, to .class file, further to .dex files to execute on the Dalvik virtual machine. Here, in this paper we have implemented the reverse engineering principle on an android app which is responsible for leaking the personal information from your smartphone such as IMEI, IMSI etc. Our research includes and emphasizes the misuse of personal/phone identifiers as well as the physical location. This paper seeks better to analyse over more than 1000 android applications which are free for the user. We have carried out the analysis i.e. static as well as dynamic.
