New Cell Phone Tracking Software Revealed

A new application was just released and it’s already sparking excitment and controversy alike. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the first iPhone 4 spy app. A company called Mobile Spy recently released a new application to essentially serve as the spy’s swiss army knife, and it’s the first of any company to do anything like it. These are the same people who have released similar software for the iPad and Android systems, so they seem to have cornered the technological spy market. Of all the cell phone tracking software out there, this is the one to have.

Here’s what you can expect from the new application:

GPS Tracking – Once installed, the device’s location can be tracked remotely for you to see.

Text Spying – All SMS messages can be read, whether incoming or outgoing, even after they’ve been deleted.

Email Spying – Incoming and outgoing emails can be monitored the same way as texts.

Stealth Mode – The user is unaware of the applications presence, as it runs undetectably behind other applications.

Call Log Viewer – All the call logs can be recalled and viewed, as well as the caller and date/time stamps.

Browser Logs – Every viewed webpage can be recalled later.

Contact List Recorder – All the contacts on the phone are also at your disposal.

As cool as these features are, they’re not without the slightest hassle: the target’s phone must be jail broken. Nowadays, the process is relatively quick and painless, but it has to happen before the application will run. Furthermore, individual monitoring features can be toggled on or off, giving you full control over what information you receive. Currently, a one year license runs for $99.97. Still, as the only cell phone tracking software available for the iPhone, it may not be too hard of a sell.

Child Cell Phone Monitoring Protects Children and Teens

Why would you consider monitoring your offspring’s mobile phone? The real reason most parents do this is to provide extra protection for their loved ones and to have peace of mind. How can you do it without invading their privacy and making them very angry? There are ways to do this and make it work for everyone. Read on…

First you should know that monitoring a cell phone that you own is legal. If you do not own it… probably not. If your underage child owns the phone, then that is a grey area.

Monitoring a phone gives the parent access to all kinds of information a teen or child may not want to share with adults, just like any kid keeps all kinds of things in their room and expects it to be private. Good parents generally respect a child’s privacy as long as they have no reason to be worried about safety.

What kind of information would cell phone spying give you? Depending on what you spend you will have access to:

  • The content of all texts, even those erased.
  • Numbers called and received and the times.
  • All information stored on the phone like contacts and erased information.
  • Where your child is in real time and where they have been.
  • Live and recorded conversations.
  • Local conversations occurring when the phone is off.

Wow, few people would want to share that with anyone! However, if you were in danger for any reason, wouldn’t you want someone to have access to this information to help you as quickly as possible? I sure would. If my youngster did not show up when expected after school, and I had checked all the usual places – I would be on this information like a flash. Statistics show that few children survive even hours after an abduction. Time is important, every second counts,and this technology gives you a roaring head start.

If you have teenagers I am sure you can see the benefit of having this installed in their cell phones. Generally teens are wanting more freedom and it will be easier to give it, knowing that you have a backup plan if rules aren’t followed.

I am not advocating installing this software without the knowledge of the person owning the phone. No way, I am not a sneak, and I would never want to model that kind of behavior to my children. We would have a family meeting and explain why we wanted it on everyone’s phone, including mine and my wife’s, and exactly how and when it would be used. I would want the family to discuss the guidelines for use, so we all have input and understand the circumstances that would require checking anyone’s phone. Everyone would be shown how to use it and when. The same level of privacy would be expected on the software as we have in our home.

My daughter is in her late 20’s now, but it would certainly have saved me some difficult times during her teens. Oh, I just slept over at Julie’s, I forgot to phone. I was finally able to encourage her to phone me and check in – otherwise all her friend’s parents got calls at 3 am. She understood my worry, but it just wasn’t a priority.

Spy phone software can be presented to your family as a way to work together for a common goal of family safety. Knowing that someone will be checking your cell if the check-in and other guidelines are not being followed will encourage more responsible behavior with no loss of privacy. There will be no reason for anger or upset because each person is involved in setting the guidelines.

Cell Phone Spy Software?

Cell phone spy software is becoming rapidly one of the most wanted mobile applications today, especially by parents, company owners and spouses who believe that their spouses are having an affair. One of the features that mobile phone spy-ware offers, each of these groups will find in it a great benefit for each of their specific needs.

As for parents who are always worried about where are their children or teenager kids. Every parent has this concern but the kids [especially teenagers] find this to be very intrusive and over bearing. What these kids will not find so intrusive is when their parents purchase for them High end smart-phone cell phones like Black-Berries or i-Phones. The parents are the legal owners of these phones and paid for them. This gives the parents the legal right to install mobile phone spy software on them, and have the ability to know the location of their children at all times using Google Maps, a feature that is one of the benefits this software offers.

Another option that this spy-ware has is the ability to see exactly who is calling their kids and who are their kids calling as well. This information includes the time and duration of the call, Plus the name that has been assigned to the number received or called. Another feature is the parents will be able to read every text that is sent and/or received by the phone, even if the kid erases it.

Of course same features can be obtained by company employers, although their reasons to know is different than that of parents. Employers who give mobile phones to employees do this because they want them to use them for company purposes, not for long distance calls to some girl they met. By monitoring the activity of their employees with mobile phone spy-ware, they can be comforted that the money they pay on mobile calls is being used for company uses only. The best part is it isn’t as expensive as many would think. This is because an employer doesn’t have to install mobile phone spy software on every mobile phone. They can install it in the employees whom they already suspect and catching one of them will make all employees think their phone is being monitored as well.

Finally, for spouses who suspect their spouse is having an affair, this would be the least expensive way to check on them. Hiring a detective would cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. This spy-ware saves all a lot of money and concern as well. In addition we really should keep in mind that some spouses may be plotting murder of their spouse. There have been many cases where a spouse was in contact with someone who was in on the plot via their cell phone. The spouse who was the target of this had some suspicions but did not have anything concrete to go on. If this software were available to them AND they knew about it, maybe their lives would have been saved. There are many what ifs in this world but if you suspect your spouse of having an affair it is not something that is harmless. The other side of the coin is the spouse may be hiding financial losses and having software that might give you a heads up on this may be life saving as well. What if that spouse who is hiding that information may have a conversation with a life insurance agent naming you as the insured for a lot of money. That may be something you should know and not be told.

In conclusion,as you can readily see there are many reasons to use this technology. To me the best reason is for the safety for children. Children may be able to dial a phone and text people but cannot discern when it is appropriate to text and to whom they are in contact. As a parent I want to know that my child is not contacting people inappropriately. I want to be able to screen what my children are doing and know where they are supposed to be as opposed to where they are actually. A good parent believes their children but also verifies their habits and location as well.
