Mobile phones have become a part of our everyday life. Their computational power is increased in a daily basis. We live in smart phones era and mobile networks support data exchange in affordable prices. The vision of the convergence between mobile networks and broadband networks is too close in our future. The next step to be expected is the promising convergence between mobile networks (3G), WLAN and WIMAX, named as heterogeneous 4G networks. User's information disclosure is a subject that has already been studied in conventional Internet, but not in Mobile Internet. The aim of this thesis is to inform about the Privacy techniques that already exist and identify Privacy threats in Mobile Internet. Finally, it proposes an architecture that aims to protect the user's Privacy.
