Mobile phone spy software is becoming rapidly one of the most demanded mobile applications today, specially by parents, company owners and spouses who think they are being cheated on. Because of the features that mobile phone spy software offers, each of these groups find in it a great benefit for a specific need.
For example, parents are always worried about the whereabouts of their children or teenager kids. This is a normal concern but one that kids (specially teenagers) find intrusive and restraining. However, both teens and children will not find intrusive to have their parents buy them smartphones, like BlackBerries or iPhones. Since these phones legally belong to their parents, who paid for them, the parents are free to install mobile phone spy software on them, and thus be able to know the location of their children at all times using Google Maps, a feature that such software offers.
Parents are also able to see which numbers have called their kids’ mobiles and which numbers their kids have called. This information includes the time and duration of the call, and any name that has been assigned to the number. As if this weren’t enough, parents can also read any text that has been sent or received by the phone, even if the kid erases it.
The same benefits can be obtained by company employers, although their interests lie elsewhere. Employers who choose to give mobile phones to employees do so because they want them to use them for company purposes, not for long distance calls to some girl they met on Internet. By monitoring the activity of their employees with mobile phone spy software, they can rest assured that the money they pay on mobile calls is well spent. In addition, it isn’t as expensive as one might think. That’s because an employer doesn’t have to install mobile phone spy software on every mobile phone. Just installing it in the most suspicious employees and catching one will make all employees think they’re under supervision.
Finally, there are the spouses who think they are being cheated on. It is obvious what they need the software for, so I’m not going to dwell on it or take a moral standing about the issue. In the end, it is up to each of us to decide whether this type of software is a good choice for us.
