    Instagram for example. What footprints can they get from you if you're using their app from Android or iOS?

    Cookies
    Device ID
    Google ID
    MAC Address

    What more?

    I'm using BlueStacks and want to know exactly what I have to spoof / clear the data of in order to not leave any footprints for IG.

    You can do this without the app needing to prompt the "Do you want to allow this app to access your XXX"?

    google will not allow your app if you access info without showing to user what you can access.
