While spy apps may have been created to help parents better monitor their kids, some people use them for totally different purposes. Such devious apps can be used by spouses, relatives, or mistrustful employers.
Your phone certainly includes your pictures, browsing history, GPS location data, notes or voicemails, texts/emails with personal information, etc. That little smart device is actually a portable record of your detailed daily life, so imagine how nightmarish it could be if a jerk gains full access to that information.
So if there’s anyone out there who is paranoid enough to spy on your detailed personal life, they might be using one of these freaky apps. Note that these apps are illegal in some states.
If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, then beware of TheOneSpy. This app is really scary because whoever installs the software will technically possess everything happening on that device.
The app encrypts collected data and sends it to a web portal where the spy can review it, allowing the spy to read all your text messages and emails, listen to phone call recordings, check out your browsing history, and even activate the camera and microphone to secretly monitor your surroundings.
Also, some good spying isn’t that expensive. TheOneSpy charges around $25 for one month of monitoring.
Highster Mobile monitors other apps you use on your device, including WhatsApp, Skype, Instagram, Facebook, etc. You can install it remotely and block any app you want. What’s scarier is the app has the ability to access even deleted messages and information.
Moreover, Highster Mobile can lock a targeted device, making the owner completely lose access to their phone. The app is compatible with both Android and iOS and costs $70.
FlexiSpy is used to smoothly spy on smartphone activity. Dangerously, not only can this app spy on your messages, audios, and data, but it can also moitor other apps, GPS location, and even passwords.
What’s more, the app installer can receive alerts and comfortably spy on you since the app icon doesn’t appear on the task manager. FlexiSpy is compatible with both iOS and Android, and the spy has to pay $68 per month for a premium plan.
mSpy is a frightening app that can monitor content from other apps, including SnapChat. Not only that, it can also spy on your GPS location and block selected phone numbers to prevent them from calling you.
mSpy was originally designed for parents who are concerned about their kid talking to someone they cannot trust. Yet, a skeptical employer or spouse may also be interested in using it to access private information.
Moreover, the app offers continuous customer support to help users, aka spies, find exactly what they want. And wait! Things get worse. mSpy offers desktop monitoring as well, meaning that the spy can watch your activity on every device you use. All of this spying costs only about $20 per month.
Spyera is much more than an app, it’s a freakishly entire smartphone! It actually comes pre-installed on many devices (both Android and iOS), so the person giving you the smartphone can monitor everything you do.
Spyera software has the ability to report phone calls, use the microphone to spy on the smartphone’s surroundings, and even record audios and store them for later use.
If that’s not scary enough for you, Spyera can also spy on conversations via other apps, upload copies of your pictures, track your instant texts, and even directly spying on you using the phone’s camera.
One thing that may help you feel a bit at ease is probably the high cost of Spyera, as one year of spying costs $389 per smartphone. Plus, the spy should provide the device too.
