Android Spyware Can Uncover Infidelity
An Android spyware is a software app that works with phones that run on Android OS turning the phone into a “bona fide” spying and tracking device. Nexus One and Motorola Droid are two such phones.
How Does Android Spyware Work?
For the Android spyware app to work, the user has to download the app unto the Android phone. Using the phone’s internet browser, access the web and download the app.
After download and installation, the app becomes undetectable as it quietly works in the background. What does Android spyware do? It secretly records calls; call logs, SMS, GPS locations etc. There is an account online associated with this app. This is where all the information recorded are uploaded and stored. All these go on without the user being any wiser. All the uploaded files are available to anyone who has access to the online account associated with the spy app.
There are a couple of uses that this system can be put to.
Android spy software can do some of the following:
- Calls made on the phone can be heard by you from the online account.
- You can also listen to sounds from the surroundings of where the phone is at the time.
- You can keep track of where the phone is. It updates the location details every 15 minutes. This gives you a good idea of the location of the phone and its user. The GPS coordinates are translated to a location by Google maps.
- You can view all the pictures on the phone.
- Every text message sent or received are accessible from the online account.
- With the Android spyware app, you can access details of every call that was made or received on the phone.
This Android spyware app is used by people in many different ways. Let’s look at a couple of examples of ways people use it.
Most popular of all is monitoring of a spouse that is suspected of having an affair. Before now, people who wanted to know this had to get a private detective. You would obviously get a more reliable information with this application.
If you look at what this app can do, you would agree with me that it is a bit scary. You can listen to your spouse’s calls, read their sms, view their call log, check out their address books, their pictures and even know where the phone has been to amongst other things . One thing is sure, whatever was being hidden from you would be thrown into the open.
Also popular is parents using this as a spy tool on their kids. Parents use the Android spy app to know their children’s whereabouts. For cases where parents feel their kids may be involved in some nefarious activities, they can keep very close watch on them via their Android phone.
One more use is in companies were employees are given official phones. The phones (mostly official phones) can be watched to ensure that the usage is in line with the agreed or stipulated terms. On the other hand, they also use it to keep records of their dealings with some customers on phone. This is very important especially in cases where a customer wants to deny something just because they think there is no record of their statement.
I am certain that not everyone would use the Android spy phone for some of the purposes shown above. What use you put it to would totally depend on your needs, belief etc. It is not for us to justify or condemn. All we are doing is reviewing the Android spyware app. Understand this very well and use it for the purpose you decide is ideal for you and your situation.
