Spy apps are admittedly a brilliant invention. Ever since their privatization and access to civilians, its uses have changed the face of the private security as we know it. The technology that was once in the possession of the best spy agencies in the world alone is now in the hands of simple parents, business owners and spouses trying to do good by their children, business or other halves. Spy applications are relatively safe to use. All you have to do is download a spy application install it on the target device, connect to it using the login ID and password provided by the spy app owners and you are good to go. From call and text logs to pictures to actual recordings of call, all of them are available online and can be remotely accessed whenever the user wants to know something particular. Since all such data is stored online onto the spy apps servers, they can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Such data can also be stolen if a hacker breaks into the spy apps servers and might compromise the users’ security. To ensure that nothing of this sort happens to you. This is what you have to do.
Read the Fine Print
Reading the User Agreement might seem like a pain to most of you but it is in that fine print that you would find the details about the security and the safety concerns and protocol a certain spy application follows. Therefore, it is always in your best interest to analyze the user agreement in detail and weight its pro and cons against other spy apps before simply clicking on I agree without having read even a single word.
Check The Reviews and Ratings Online
Although most websites and business owner pay good money to get their product reviewed and presented in the best possible light to their target audience, yet at the same time there are some websites that rate and review the product for what it really is and what it stands for. Thus, look for the websites that seem authentic to you and review their ratings of different spy apps against the other ones you are looking into buying.
Talk to Them About Their Security Measures
Another thing you can do to ensure that your spy app isn’t spying on you as well is to actually talk to their support services about it. They might not be able to openly give you all the details that you might be looking for but they may be able to provide you with a detailed look into their security protocols and what kind of security they apply on their servers. Additionally, they might also be able to provide you with ample information that if you know what you are doing and weed it out of them and are capable of putting two and two together, you might be able to understand how their system works.
Talk to Other People
You are not and you will never be the only customer that any spy app manufacturer would have. Since most spy app service providers ask their customers to leave a review of their product on their website and most of these users are logged in through their Facebook or Twitter account, you can use that portal to contact this other customer and discuss in detail the pros and cons of the product you are looking into buying and whether it provides security from the demons within as it does from the external ones.
Check Their Installation Protocol
Another way to make sure that you are safe from your spy app provider is to look into its installation protocol. If it requires the target device to be rooted or jailbroken and demands access to certain features of the device that it has no business poking its nose into, then installing such an application onto the target device would be a big mistake. A spy app certainly is intrusive in nature but that certainly does not mean that the data being stored on the servers on the spy app owners doesn’t require the same amount of protection as the data stored in the device. Thus, if a spy app demands way too much access than what is deemed necessary then using such an app is a big no-no.
