Can Your Smartphone Spy On You?

There are lots of shows and movies whose background story is about intelligence, spying, detectives, science and so on. But the question is, whether technology has really advanced that much, that a normal person could use it to spy a person of interest. The answer is yes!! With  improvement in software technology, there has been a wide scope of development of such software that could track a phone’€™s activity. Phone tapping, was one of the earliest ways to intercept the calls that were received on a phone, similarly software developers came up with the idea develop software that could be helpful in tapping up a cell phone’€™s activities.

Consequently, the time of expensive phone tapping has passed, and there are now a vast array of brilliant spying gadgets and softwares, which are not as expensive as one might assume. These mobile spywares are extensively accomplished, cleverly designed, and adequate enough to meet the €˜spying€™ needs of the modern world!! Thus, modern science has opened doors for the abundance of software that help in tracking today’€™s smartphones.


Bluejacking is a way to connect with other phone€™s or devices which support bluetooth, however this is a different way of connecting with them, as the approval for connection is not mutual, and the connecting device hijacks the connection of the other mobile phone to send texts, images, sounds etc. This process is not so harmful per se, as the connection is solely made to send over files, whereas the bluejacked person might think that something is wrong with their mobile phone, or their mobile phone has broken down. This technology is best for small pranks, for instance the bluejacking person can send error messages to the bluejacked mobile phone, and make them believe that it has a virus in it or something like that.

Real Time Tracking Of People

There are some awesome spying softwares such as Imobispy, Spymaster Pro, StealthGenie etc, which can be installed on the target cell phone, that help in tracking each and every activity of the mobile phone. These applications are really effective, and aid in revealing the truth about the phone’€™s activities. Although the only negative point of these softwares is that they need to be installed on the phone manually, that is, it requires one-time access before the tracking can be started. Once done, the software will start monitoring the activities of the cell phone, and will be uploading all the crucial data onto the servers so that the data can be accessed from remote locations.

Viewing Text Messages From Remote Areas

Imobispy, StealthGenie and various other spying applications do come up with tools that aid in retrieving text messages of the said cell phone such that the retrieved messages can be read by the monitoring user later on. In addition some mobile spying softwares also provide additional feature that allow users to view deleted messages on their victim’s phone.

These are just couple of ways, a mobile phone can be used to spy on others. Ever wondered if you are being spied on??? Keep thinking, cause you never know.

  1. “Bluejacking is a way to connect with other phone€™s or devices which support bluetooth”

    i think i need this tutorial ..

  2. For information on how to detect and end smartphone snooping there is a book called \”Is My Cell Phone Bugged? Everything you need to know about keeping your communications private.\”

  3. Thank for all info in one place and I have heard of such danger – that’s why you should for sure turn off Bluetooth and don’t use suspicious WiFi networks at leasy – at least this is what I do + lock your phone so that nobody can install anything on it without you

  4. If it really can happen then its gonna be fun using it in spying mode. This is one kind of hacking into someone else’s phone. Hope the technology won’t be misused rather than used for some good purpose.
