Spying is good or bad

To track text messages and to control someone else’s phone without his knowledge might seem to be considered as unscrupulous by some. But, it is perfectly fine if you have a good motive and not intending to harm anyone.

It is true that if the app can be installed on the target’s phone with his consent, then that is the best scenario. But, is it always possible to convince the person to install such a monitoring app and will the purpose of the app be solved if its presence is revealed?

Suppose, if the employee gets to know that the phone handed over to him from his company, has a monitoring app installed in it, will he use the same for all his communications? He will never share his right impression of the company with his friends, and he will never fidget with the phone in office hours. He will use it only for the official purpose and thus dissolve the entire object. So, it is perfectly acceptable, if you as an employer want to track text messages of your employee without informing him, to know if he is leaking out any trade secrets or spreading any rumours.

When it comes to the kid, we all know that they are impulsive and vulnerable. So it is imperative to protect them, and it is entirely legal. However, installing a spy monitoring in their mobile will not suffice the entire purpose. You need to protect them from the internet, and it is accessible from multiple other places like schools, cafes, personal desktops and mac books. So, the best solution is to discuss with them and to convince them about the need for a parental monitoring app. Teenagers many a time repent over their own acts in adulthood. So, as parents, it’s your moral duty to ensure that your child has safe adolescence.

If your friend or spouse cheats on you, you have the complete authority to know the details. You would for obvious reasons want to identify with whom he is cheating on you and if there is any specific reason behind it. It’s your life, and you have no right to be in the dark. In a marriage, recordings and snippets from the spouse’s phone can be used as a proof to reach a mutual consent.
