LinkedIn Tracking

Today I was playing around with an SSL MITM proxy and the LinkedIn iOS application. While using the application, I noticed that it was regularly reporting on my usage via an HTTP POST to https://www.linkedin.com/li/track.

For those curious on the type of information the app reports back to LinkedIn, I've posted a snippet of the communication below:

X-LI-Track: { orientation : P,
              osName : iOS,
              clientVersion : 9.7.6490.1,

              osVersion : 10.3.1,
              deviceId : ########-####-####-####-############,
              locale : en_CA,
              deviceType : iphone,
              appId : com.linkedin.LinkedIn,
              clientMinorVersion : 910.77,
              language : en-CA,
              model : iphone8_2,
              carrier : Mobile_Provider_Name }
