Fake Antenna Detection Project

Seaglass Logo

This project aims to address repressive surveillance and monitoring of private cell phone communications within communities at risk in the contexts of Latin America by testing and measuring the potential presence and use of IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity). IMSI is a number that identifies every use of a cellular network. The project will engage in advanced technical testing in various countries, research and collect data to help various communities in understanding the threat environment better, and allow for a better digital safety approach. https://fadeproject.org/
