A person’s mobile phone calls and text messages may be tracked using a spy mobile phone technology. The software is installed in the mobile phone and allows one to log into a website to enter the person’s mobile number. From there, a person can listen to the person’s incoming and outgoing phone calls.
Similarly, when somebody receives or sends messages, they are sent to a third party. In addition, the software can be used to locate a person’s whereabouts without him knowing. It uses the popular GPS technology and reveals the person’s location on a satellite map Web page. More advanced software can start the recording feature of an inactive cellphone. This way, it records the person’s verbal conversations with other people and sends them on a central computer. The recordings are then retrieved and listened to. This technology can be used by parents who want to keep their children under constant check. Married couples can also do this in the pursuit of catching a cheating spouse. In addition, detectives can plant bugs in a suspect’s phone or computer to track his activities. The practice may be illegal in some jurisdictions, in which case a lawyer be first be contacted before a bug is planted.
