Concerns over MyFone by Civil Liberties - Audio Player - Audio - RadioLIVE

New cellphone snooping technology can place children and people suffering domestic abuse at risk as it gives the parent, family or abusive spouse the ability to track the phone & monitor texts and calls made & received. The potential for abuse is huge and once again technology is rushed into use without proper protections for those who will be put at risk. The desire to pry into the lives of others, even for good intentions, can often be very dangerous.

The thought that what you and think may be listened in on, weighed and measured by others can have a chilling effect on free speech and thought. We as a society are slowly being desensitized to being monitored by others. Orwell's vision of the all powerful all monitoring state where there is no private sphere is becoming a reality faster than we think.

Here is what one cellphone snooping ad says:"Mobile Spy is the next generation of smartphone spy software. Do you suspect that your child or employee is abusing their SMS or vehicle privileges? If yes, then this software is ideal for you. Install this small program directly onto your compatible smartphone you want to monitor to begin recording.
Using the Internet capabilities of your phone, recorded activities, logs and GPS locations are quickly uploaded to your Mobile Spy account. To view the results, you simply login to your secure account at the Mobile Spy web site. Logs are displayed by categories and sorted for easy browsing.
The software is completely stealth and works independently. Mobile Spy does not rely on the phone's call and message logs to record activities. So even if the user tries to delete their tracks, the data will still be retained and uploaded. Compatible with most models of iPhone, BlackBerry or Android phones! Also compatible with Windows Mobile, Symbian OS and iPad.
