Are private apps watching you? It’s the latest trend among family members using smartphones to spy on their loved ones. But can you do it legally?
- Ethical/ legal questions on whether the phone owner knows these apps are running.
- Can lead to numerous marital issues (tracking apps make it much easier to pinpoint cheating and location)
How much spying is too much? Do people really understand the full implications of these apps before installing them? Many people download these apps and hand over complete control to a third party without fully understanding the implications of it.
Who is educating the public on what it really means to have these apps installed?
