There is a new type of software called the Android spying tool that is frequently mentioned in forums and other discussion sites related to smart phones. It isn’t as new as people think, but it isn’t so widespread that everyone has heard of it.
The Android spying tool has a very controversial nature, but like every technology that has been invented, it has no morality of its own. It is rather how each person uses it that determines the morality of it.
Because of its name, which implies, well… spying, the Android spying tool is immediately considered an invasion of privacy by many people. However, there are many benign uses for the Android spying tool. Let’s see two features that I find extremely useful if you decide to use an Android spying tool to keep an eye on your children, especially if they are teenagers.
First of all, the software lets you find the location of the Android based smart phone on a map. If you´re a parent who has ever wondered where your son or daughter is, you’ll understand immediately how useful this is. Other people might think that it’s just a matter of calling the phone and speaking to the child. If that’s your case, then you clearly haven’t had children yet.
The other feature of the Android spying tool that will help you is the access it gives you to the phone’s text messages. Teenagers usually don’t have much credit to talk a lot, so they text instead. If you suspect that your son or daughter is in some serious trouble, this is a sure way to find out if something is going on (and what exactly) so you can do something about it.
I’m not going to go into the debate of whether your son or daughter has a right to this kind of privacy while living under your house and using an Android based phone that you pay. I’m just going to point out that if you think this kind of privacy has to be earned, then this kind of software is very useful for you.
So, as you can see, this type of software can be extremely useful if you use it correctly and for a good purpose. In the case that I mentioned, you’ll feel better by being able to get the information needed to protect your family better. At the same time, you’ll be avoiding endless discussions with your children who might think that supervision and calling home is “oppression.” In the end, everybody wins.
