Mobile phone spy has many insidious features – from reporting your text and recording your keystrokes to tracking your location via Gps and gathering your internet data to be browsed at ease. But the main use for mobile audio spyware is what it’s always been; listening to your conversations. Our phone calls should be just that, ours. These are our private conversations that we have with people close to us, our bosses and coworkers and anyone who just night call. Imagine if you could never have a private phone conversation with anyone. With mobile audio spyware, that is exactly the type of situation you’ll be in. Scary, isn’t it?
Mobile Audio spyware invades your privacy and makes your conversations recordable and revisable to the person who installed it. When you are called or when you make a call, the spyware app alerts the software on the installer’s computer. The installer can then listening in to your conversations in real time and may be able to disconnect you. If the software has the option, the installer can record your conversation to be viewed at a later date.
Another audio spy feature you may not know about is the ability to listen to your surrounds when the phone is not in use. Let me say that again. The spyware can detect your off-phone conversations if it is near you and allow whoever installed the spyware to listen in. Talk about devious!
A third feature of mobile audio spyware is that it can also log and record information about each call, either incoming or outgoing. The app can report when the call was placed, who called, where you were when the call was placed and how long the call was.
You should know how to tell if you have mobile audio spyware on your phone. The classic sign to watch out for is the clicky or static noise that happens when you are talking to someone. The noise will manifest itself as the background noise of the person on the other line. This is a sign that has been used since phone bugs were invented. Also, you may have audio spyware if your phone keeps turning on when you turn it off. This is the app working and forcing the phone to stay on.
If you want to remove audio spyware from your phone, there are three ways of doing it. First you can find software that detects and removes spyware from mobile phone. There might be a fee but what it the real price of privacy? Second, you can find whoever installed the spyware and tell them to remove it. Thirdly, you can get a new phone. But this option is the most devastating as you will probably spend more than $200 on a new phone and all the information on your phone cannot be transferred without the risk of the audio spyware being transferred along with it.
If you do not have internet on your phone, you do not have to worry. A spyware app needs to be able to connect to the internet to deliver to the data. Since mobile phones are not connected to landlines, the apps need internet to communicate.
