Surveillance Age Love

Posted on .

What do you think: Is spying on your lover okay? One survey found approximately one-third of people are okay with spying on their loved ones. A recent report out of Australia showed that nearly half of young Australians think spying on their partner via computer, phone or otherwise is acceptable. A simple Google search shows people are thinking about it.

A survey at OurTime.com showed, “33% of Americans aged 18 and over, believe it’s OK to snoop through a significant other’s text messages, voicemails and email if ‘bad behavior’ is suspected.” According to eHarmony,  approximately 43 percent of men and 54 percent of women do browse someone’s internet footprint before going out.

There are plenty of apps and products to help you spy on your significant other. Many of them have benign marketing campaigns. The app Connect, for instance, allows you to follow your husband, wife children and friends on social media sites Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and LinkedIn. Find My Friends helps you know when your spouse or children leave a certain location. Some others are Trick or Tracker, Phone Tracker and AccuTracker. Such apps can also be used for spying on your partner.

Then there are more blatant apps, like ThaiSpy, which enables “close boyfriends or distant sugar daddies of women … to know they are being honoured and appreciated.”  That’s right, for just $29.99, you can know a whole lot about your partner. Then there is Couple Tracker, which is a different concept. Each partner must agree to enable their digital activity to be monitored. That way you can know what the other is up to. mSpy let’s you spy on your partner without them knowing. Some hackers even offer a service to help you spy on your lover:

Relationships are complicated. If you don’t trust your loved one, perhaps it’s time you sat down with them and spoke to them about it. If the nagging persists, maybe the relationship isn’t right for you. But, hey, I’m not a licensed love doctor, so take that with a “grin of salt.”
