Data Interception

Is Thunkable able to intercept data coming into a device (i.e. mobile device)?

What does that mean? Can you give a few examples?

What I mean is are you able to see what data is coming into the OS of a user’s device when on an app
made on Thunkable.

That’s still not specific enough to really give you an answer. “Data” could mean anything so I guess you mean any and all data that is stored on a user’s device. It’s not clear if you mean only data associated with a Thunkable app or all data associated with all apps.

A general answer then is: NO.

Depending on what you actually want to do with the data and what type of data exactly you are interested in, the answer is: YES.

There are plenty of ways to work with data within Thunkable apps including external database support (Google Sheets, AirTable, Firebase, etc.) and sensors (location sensor, accelerometer, etc.).

My bad, I should have been a bit more specific. By data, I meant all data stored on a user’s device including data requests coming into the device.

I would say no. Again, since you haven’t provided any examples, it’s hard to give a full answer. But if you want access to ALL data on a user’s device and all “requests” then NO, it’s not possible.
