To some people, it might seem like something that came out of a James Bond movie, others see it as a protection tool. Regardless, mobile spy software is a reality now and it’s quickly becoming an important part of mobile phones’ software.
For those of you who don’t know it, mobile spy software is an application that can be installed on a mobile phone and that allow you to monitor the activities of said mobile. The mobile phone on which such application has been installed doesn’t give any signals, icons, or information of any kind that allow the user to know that such application has been installed on the phone; thus the “spy” name. Only the person that installs the mobile spy software and the people that he or she wants to know about it will know that the mobile phone’s activities can be traced.
Of course, such software wasn’t designed to invade the privacy of others or to break any laws. Otherwise it wouldn’t be sold commercially. There are some legal factors that have to be taken into account, but the main one is that you can only legally install mobile spy software on a mobile phone that you own. You simply can’t take your friend’s, neighbor’s, or coworker’s mobile phone and install the software on it.
In addition, despite the name, you are free to inform the user of the phone that such software was installed on it. For example, if you own a company and the company gives mobile phones to your employees for work purposes, you can tell them that their activities with the mobile will be monitored and they’d better be used only in the company’s best interest.
So, what does this mobile spy software do? Well, first of all, you can see the calls that the phone has made or received. This includes the number of the phone that called or was called, the time of the call and the duration of the call. You can also read any text message that the phone sent or received, including the number from which the message was received or to which the message was sent.
At the very least, this mobile application is worth checking out.
