New Watch_Dogs App Will Rate Your Hacker Vulnerability Based on Facebook Stats

April 18, 2014

In the spirit of their upcoming game, Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created an app that will collect your Facebook stats and rate how vulnerable you are to hackers. The app will scan every image, contact, post, and any information given to put together a list of places where a hacker might look to steal your account.

At the end of the date gathering, it will tell you how large of a Digital Shadow you cast, at least on Facebook, and will give you a score. As not to scare players off, the studio goes on record to say:

Much like the game itself, the Digital Shadow app is meant to provoke thought and conversation, and perhaps lead to further exploration of our increasingly digital world.

The app will not store any or this data and it will never be used for anything in the future. It is solely for your own use.
