Carr said there are several companies selling spy software that can infiltrate even the most high-tech phones.
So what can the software do?
"I can follow you around if your phone has GPS technology. I can see where you are, I can read your e-mails, I can read your text messaging," said Carr.
Once Robin makes a phone call from several miles away, a cell phone in the newsroom receives a text message alert about her call. The newsroom cell phone is able to listen to the phone call between Robin and her fiance.
Robin's GPS location could also be continuously monitored.
And even with her phoned turned off, her conversation over lunch with her colleague Laura could be heard on the newsroom cell phone.
Internet companies in the U.K., Thailand and Taiwan sell the software.
Prices range from $50 to $3,000, and installation is easier than you might think.
