Well apparently mSpy thinks we should all add a little James Bond into our dating lives. Who cares about trust when you can simply see everything your significant other is doing on their smartphone? Sounds like the makings of a perfect foundation to me.


A software called mSpy from software company My Spy records your calls, monitors your Internet use, tracks your SMS, WhatsApp and Skype conversations and it can track your location. According to mSpy, the target of your spying will have no idea of your surveillance. And even better, this technology is available preloaded in smartphones such as the iPhone 5S, Galaxy S4, HTC One and Nexus 5. Does anyone else see a problem with this? No? Just me? Oy vey.

Way to go, society.


Although mSpy has been around since 2011, it has not been til now that phones come with a one-year subscription to the program pre-installed. You can also download the program for other Android, iOS and Blackberry devices. The program runs in an “invisible mode” which will not interfere with the phone’s operations.


Here’s the catch. Even though all signs seem to show that mSpy is all about private surveillance, their legal page seems to indicate otherwise. The page says that installing surveillance software on a device “you do not have proper authorization” for installation is a federal or state violation of the law. So there’s that.

“We absolutely do not endorse the use of our software for illegal purposes,” the legal page reads.

Does anyone else think that’s a blatant lie?

The software company seems to hope that their software will be used for parents checking in on their child, or monitoring employee activity. But, if you’re Overly Obsessed Girlfriend, your spying just got a whole lot easier:


What do you think of mSpy’s preloaded software?

    Not crazy about the software, but seeing Castiel in my feed almost made up for it. :)
