mSpy, one of the world’s leading mobile tracking software providers, has recently announced that it is now releasing three popular Android smartphone models that are pre-loaded with the mSpy monitoring software. The models include the HTC One, Nexus 5, and the Samsung Galaxy S4. The company is also offering the iPhone 5S pre-loaded with the monitoring software.
According to Andrei Shimanovich, COO of mSpy, “The mSpy software bundle is in direct response to the feedback we have been receiving from our customers. For the first time, people can now purchase a top-of-the-line smartphone which is preinstalled with a multi-functional cell phone tracker. It’s a perfect solution not just for individuals, but also for businesses.”
mSpy was originally designed as a parental control tool. The software installs on a device in stealth mode allowing parents to remotely track their kids’ smartphone usage. Some of its features include the ability to block certain websites, programs, and apps. It also allows for the restriction of calls, locking of the device and much more.
Consumers however found out that this monitoring software could be used for other purposes such as in corporations where employers need to track down data leakage, or by anyone who wants to see if their spouse is cheating.
One problem with the mSpy monitoring software is getting it installed on the target device. Some devices are not compatible with the software while other people don’t want the owner of the target device to know that spyware software is installed.
Now that the company is selling smartphone pre-installed with its monitoring software most of the problems faced by customers are solved.
For those wondering if this is legal mSpy says in its website that it is. “It is a considered federal and/or state violation of the law in most cases to install surveillance software onto a mobile phone or other device for which you do not have proper authorization, and in most cases you are required to notify users of the device that they are being monitored. Failure to do so may result in a violation of federal or state laws, if you install this software onto a device you do not own or if you do not have proper consent to monitor the user of the device. We absolutely do not endorse the use of our software for illegal purposes.”
Prices for the bugged devices start at $649.99 for the Nexus 5 to as high as $799.99 for the Samsung Galaxy S4. This already comes with a free one year subscription to the service.
