Following up on the @exodus discussion: The app does a lookup into an online db for installed apps. As F-Droid often has the same apps as gplay but with trackers disabled or patched out this would obviously result in false positives.

@exodus Supporting yalp installed apps should work in the future but requires cooperation form yalp store marking the apps corretly on install, same for F-Droid installed apps.

Hope I got that right, @Schoumi

"but with trackers disabled or patched out"
How? Is that f-droid who disable or patch out trackers?

@remich For some apps there is a build flavour provided by upstream to comply with F-Droid';s inclusion process. sometimes this work is done by a third party and included as a patch in the fdroiddata repo.
