Mobile Security - mSpy monitoring software
This article warns of possible mis-use in this legitimate tracking where parents monitor cell phone usage by their kids
QUOTE: Those of you interested in preserving your privacy will want to watch out for the mSpy app. When installed on an Android or iOS device, it can track phone calls, location data and keyboard strokes in the background without your knowledge. The app is ostensibly intended for legal monitoring use, and there are certainly legitimate reasons to install the software. Companies, for instance, could inform their employees that they’re surveilling company phones for security purposes, or concerned parents could include the software on devices they give to their kids.
Thankfully, the app requires physical access for installation. The iOS version requires that the client device is jailbroken, and it isn’t currently compatible with iOS 7 and recent versions of iOS 6 (6.1.3 and 6.1.4). mSpy for Android works with some of the platform’s most popular devices, including the Galaxy S4, Moto X and the HTC One, but spying on apps like Facebook, Skype, Viber and Whatsapp requires the phone to be rooted. Older BlackBerry and Symbian phones are also supported.
