Wakoopa – Tracks Your Software Usage For You?

3 05 2007

Wakoopa – Software gone social

Wakoopa tracks what kind of software or games you use, and lets you create your own software profile. Ready for you to share with the world. Why? Because what you use on your desktop is who you are!

Ok so here’s the deal, you sign up and and download their little bit of software that tracks what software you use…

This both seems like a great idea and a horrible hacking attack waiting to happen. I like the reviews and seeing whats out there that I might not even know about, but still…

You have to let a piece of third party software run in the background on the desktop.  A piece of software that tracks what executable files you use.  A piece of software that is constantly relaying info to the Wakoopa servers.

I’m leaning towards not using this neat looking service, but only because I’m a total privacy paranoid freak and I can only imagine the hacking possibilities.

Anyone out there use Wakoopa?  Any hackers see any vulnerabilities in their software or website?  I just want to keep peeps safe before they download what is basically a Trojan.

BTW – To the peeps over at Wakoopa, it really is a great idea and I love how everything is set up.  I just have some security worries.  Good job though.

We here you! We’ve been thinking extremely hard about things like safety and privacy, and are actually still working on improving that. Think of a filter option in your tracker, or the ability to delete pieces of data once it’s on our site. Check out our privacy page for more information:


Any suggestions would be more then welcome. Thanks!

An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I feel that it’s best to write extra on this matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically persons are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
