With advancement in technology, life has become much easier for all of us. Technology has brought us a lot of comforts as well as some discomforts. One of the most shocking results of technology advancement is the development of spy phone software.
This software is a powerful tool developed to invade your mobile and subsequently your life. This software is so well designed and acts so stealthily that it is difficult to even get a hint that something is not right with your phone. In no time at all, you loose out on your privacy because someone is always eavesdropping on your conversations, keeping an eye on every move you make, every place you visit, every number you dial, and every conversation you have.
In fact nowadays this software has become so advanced that you can even find out all messages and phone numbers deleted by the user of the phone. All you have to do is to simply download free software and install it into the mobile you want to be tracked. Since it works quietly in the background, the mobile user will never notice anything amiss.
But just as every cloud has a silver lining, this software too has its uses. When used to monitor the whereabouts of your child or keeping an eye on the people he talks to or send messages, you can be aware of what your child is doing without his even knowing. Since he is not aware of this spying software installed in his phone, he cannot accuse his parents of curbing his independence. Neither can the parents complain that their child never ever tells them about his movements and friends etc.
One question that comes to the mind when we talk extensively about this software is the legalities involved in this operation. Most of the software companies developing this sort of spying software save themselves by putting in a rider that the software they sell is for use on a phone belonging to the buyer primarily for protecting their children by monitoring their calls and messages. Some companies also state that this software can only be used for archiving data. Whatever reason they may give the fact remains that they are endorsing something that is highly illegal.
The worst part of this spying software is that once installed, it is difficult to detect and uninstall. The only option to remove this software is to take the mobile phone to the service provider and ask them to erase all data from your phone and restore the original factory settings. This involves a lot of hassles. You have to backup your phone data before the formatting happens and then reload the same after the formatting is done.
Of course the day is not far when advancement in technology enables us to develop software which will function as a firewall for your mobile phone and prevent this sort of invasion of privacy from happening. But till that happens we can only continue to be alert for any unusual behavior of the phone like having trouble switching off the phone even after it has been shut off, hearing all sorts of commotion and disturbances in the background while talking etc. So beware, take care and always be on the alert.
