This may sound as good news to parents who want to keep an eye on their children, an employer who wants to monitor his employee’s interactions and partner’s escapades. Your phone can be your employed detective. It is no longer news; this is because many companies are already doing it.
In these days that everybody wants to be in control of events and on top of situations, tracking has become the order of the day. We track cars for security reasons, CCTV for safety and phones for both safety and security reasons. Parents monitor their kids, employers monitor their employees against fraud and unwarranted anti business activity. Spouses monitor partners against cheating.
There are lots of Mobile phone tracking softwares available which can track calls, SMS, Emails on Mobile phones, Address books, instant messages, view photos and videos stored on mobile phones.
Tracking of cell phone is legal on two conditions
- The installer must be the owner of the target phone or must have legal authority over the phone.
- The installer must inform the adult using the monitored phone that he /she is being monitored.
Anything outside the above conditions are considered as illegal in most countries except in the case of under aged children.
