Mobile Spying is now a reality that anyone can get on Internet for a few dollars. As with most new technologies, it has created controversy. Some people think of it as an invasion of privacy while others believe that it is the ultimate application for protecting their money and their families.
Moral standings are always subjective, and they depend on each person’s view. However, facts aren’t subjective. They are objective and we’re going to review some of the facts about mobile spying software so that you have a better understanding what mobile spying software is really about.
Let’s start the most common misconception about mobile spying software: that it can be used to spy on whomever you want. This is just not true. You can only install the software on a mobile phone that you own, and even so, you need to have it connected to a computer for at least a few minutes. While some friends might lend you their mobile phone for a quick call, they certainly aren’t going to let you take it home with you. And neighbors and strangers certainly won’t leave you alone with their mobile phones. And no, you can’t spy on their mobiles just because the software is installed on your phone.
The first misconception is closely connected with the second one: that mobile spying software is illegal (and according to some, sold on the black market). Again, this is not true. This software is sold commercially and it is available to anyone over the Internet.
Now, with those two points clarified, it is a bit easier to understand why there are three groups that have been purchasing this software: parents, employers who pay for mobiles phones for their employees, and spouses who think they are being cheated on.
Since the software allows them to monitor the activities of the mobile phone, such as calls made and received, incoming and outgoing texts, and mobile location on Google Maps, then it’s easy to see why each of these groups is interested in getting the software. Parents want to know where their kids are and who they are dealing with. Employers want to make sure that they are not paying for private calls. And finally spouses who think they are being cheated on want to know the truth.
