This is a very common question that I answer often. While these programs are pretty easy to find on the internet and pretty easy to download, DON'T! In the State of North Carolina downloading a keylogger program to an electronic device is a felony. This often followed by a second question...
How will they know I downloaded the program?
They will know when their computer system starts slowing down and they take to a computer tech or they run a virus software that disables a portion of the keylogger. They will also know when their cell phone battery doesn't last as long and starts to do weird and crazy things.
Keyloggers or better known as mobile spys are software programs that a person can download on an electronic device that captures keystokes, emails, web searches, voice mails, texts, incoming and outgoing calls. They can also act as recording devices for cell phones and as a GPS tracker. In all cases, you need access to the device in order to download the software.
Sounds great if you suspect your spouse is cheating, doesn't it? However, does the cost of knowing outweigh the cost of actually using it? In an emotional minute, the answer to that would be yes, however it can't be used as evidence in court. And when things go south, it is going to be a no brainer as to who put it on the device in the first place and breaking the law is breaking the law. We are given the right to privacy and federal and state law recognize it and are always changing to make sure that we maintain the right to privacy, even in the digital world in which we live.
