Forget plain old mobile phone tracking. FlexiSpy is a cell phone tapping and spying software that, once slipped on to your cell phone, sends all of the data from your cell phone to the person spying on you. It also allows them to turn on your cell phone’s microphone so that they can remotely listen in on what you are doing, and on your calls! It currently works with all Nokia 60, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile phones, and, according to FlexiSpy, more phones are being added all the time.
According to the FlexiSpy site, “FlexiSPY is software you download into the phone. The software then collects all available data and sends it to you [sic] web account where you can view it from any computer. It sends the data using the phones [sic] Internet connection. The software also looks out for incoming calls with predefined numbers and then silently switches on the phone so you can hear the surroundings or even the phone call.”
In order to surreptitiously install the software on a victim’s phone, the spying person need only have the phone in their hands long enough to navigate to a web page with the phone, and enter their FlexiSpy code. This causes the spying software to be downloaded to the phone and enabled.
What is not yet clear is how you know that the software has been installed on your phone. In order to determine this, someone would have to experiment by downloading the software onto their own Nokia 60, Blackberry, or Windows Mobile phone (we have already disposed of those phones that we used for our comparison with the Sidekick), and see where it ends up. If any of our readers do this (you can get the software from the FlexiSpy site), please be sure to report back here!
