Not sure if this is the right forum....
So, I have been reading about technology regarding smartphones and all the conspiracy about Carrier IQ being used on millions of peoples cell phones
to track users information. What I have discovered is something that is not new, but new to me and maybe to others. Its called Easy Spy.
Easy Spy is software that you can buy and air link to the targets cellphone and track all the below
All total there are 9 modules included with Easy Spy. They are:
SMS/Text message monitoring
The target has absolutely no sense that their phone has been hijacked. Which is even worse is that Judges have ruled in cases of spouse infidelity
that it is legal. But when you read some of the Easy Spy websites, it is illegal to use without written permission from the target phone, UNLESS (here
is the catch) you own the phone.
So, if a suspecting spouse technically pays the phone bill to his/her spouse/childrens phone, they can legally record and read every phone message,
call, or text in live time!
Here are some advertisements:
So my questions and concerns are MANY:
First, is this software that encourages suspicious parents and spouses to monitor every aspect of what is private leading up into a passive
complacency that spying is OKAY? Are we in essence teaching the younger generation that spying on everyone is acceptable? Are we grooming our children
for BIG BROTHER?
I understand that there are concerns about our children or employers, even spouses who are acting strangely, but to go this far and actually purchase
this seems to me to be a complete violation of privacy.
Where do we draw a line?
When people are going to cheat, they are going to cheat, heck even Ashly Madison is building an empire for
cheaters.....Of course that goes into a whole other can of infidelity worms....
But seriously, it is creepy, and I have read some forums where people have admitted using these devices. So example, you use the device and suspect a
spouse cheating, what do you do? Confront them and then possibly ruin the trust and respect of that person, especially if say it was a false
accusation with a good explanation....that relationship is ruined. Yes they can be saved but the trust is permanently in question and to live with the
knowledge that your spouse has done that to you is soul breaking.
What about your children: I personally suffered from my mother reading my diary when I was a teenager and I have to this day never forgiven
her.........I cant imagine hacking my daughters cell phone.....
I don't know, what do you all think...Discuss. I want to hear others views
