Text Message Spying App….. For the public?!

During the process of collecting information on methods used by the NSA and GCHQ for intercepting communications, I came across this app called “StealthGenie”, a phone spy and tracking software that lets you monitor ALL the activities of any iPhone, Blackberry or Android phone.

The application is installed on the phone you want to monitor and starts uploading the monitored phone’s usage information, call history, gps location, internet activities and emails ¬†instantly which can be viewed by logging in to your StealthGenie account. I am not sure how legitimate this software is, but the sheer number and availability of these sites directed at the public is a warning about the potential state of our desire for a surveillance culture.

I found others as well that doesn’t involve having to download an application on the target phone but this one had a very amusing marketing video!
