First iPhone 4 spy software hits the market

Retina-X Studios, LLC, the creators of the first spy software for the iPhone, announced today the immediate availability of Mobile Spy for Apple iPhone 4 devices. No other professional monitoring software is currently compatible with iPhone iOS 4. Users can silently track GPS locations, SMS messages, photos and calls of children or employees inside a secure online control panel.

Mobile Spy runs in total stealth mode and no mentions of the program are shown on the iPhone. The software runs in the background behind all other applications. After the software is set up on the phone, it silently records the entire text of all SMS text messages, information about each call, emails, photos snapped, web visits, contacts list and actual GPS positions.

Immediately after activities are logged, they are silently uploaded to the user’s secure online account. Accounts can be securely checked online from any web browser without needing further access to the phone. Activity logs are viewable in real time immediately after they are recorded, including complete texts and maps of GPS positions.

This exclusive system helps businesses enforce their Acceptable Use and Vehicle Policies on company-provided phones. The software can also monitor teen or family phones. It gives a parent the ability to remotely monitor their child’s texting activities. As described on CNN, police also use the software to catch child predators. Another common use is to back up a user’s own cell activity as a record of all important text conversations and travels.

A one-year subscription to Mobile Spy is priced at US$99.97. More info here.

  1. This screams of privacy infringements and civil rights issues. Lawyers will have a field day with this one. Monitoring your kids is one thing but anyone else, that can turn out to be a huge legal headache. Also, in the PC world, I think this type of app is called a virus ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  2. This software is disgusting. Using this makes you a bad parent. If you are an employer and use this software then you might as well just fire everyone and hire new people you can trust. This software will bring no good to those that use it.

  3. I suspect that monitoring of devices provided to employees by a company is allowed, as long as the potential for monitoring has been disclosed and acknowledged by the employees. But I am not a lawyer (by choice), so that is just educated speculation based on previous articles that I have read on the subject.

  4. In an office environment, this kind of monitoring is easier to accept. Managers need some way to know if Joe Blow on the 3rd floor is spending half his morning downloading porn and reading MDN.

    Seems wrong on a mobile phone device that realistically will be used for personal use during non-working hours. Employers using this are showing bad faith with their employees.
