Cell Phone Tapping is Illegal

By MSI in Debugging - Electronic Countermeasures, MSI Detective Services at July 29th, 2009 | 2 comments

Recently, you may have seen a YouTube video floating around about a phone tapping program that has been installed on a victim’s cell phone.  Perry Myers, President of the U-Spy Store ( & MSI Detective Services (, confirms that cell phone tapping is absolutely illegal as eavesdropping on conversations without the other parties’ permission is an invasion of privacy. Perry Myers is a Certified Fraud Examiner and is thoroughly trained in countermeasures and surveillance techniques and is an expert as to the many ways eavesdropping occurs.  He tracks bugs and taps for a living.

The following are facts you need to know about cell phone tapping:

•    You must be in possession of the target phone to install the software.  Perry says that that is not always true.  Some hackers are sophisticated enough to do this remotely.

•    The video says that it is virtually impossible to detect the software.  Perry advised that you may need to reset your phone to delete the software and settings.

•    Perry shared that smart phones such as I-Phones, Blackberries, and other high-tech phones may be easier to tap since they connect to the internet.

•    One last thing that Perry wants you to know – this illegal software would not be found at the U-Spy Store. He has had many calls on this.  He even had a customer bring in the software and complain that they could not successfully install after they purchased it.  Apparently once you purchase it, the company is difficult to get tech support from.  When the customer contacted the seller, they were told they needed to download additional software from other sources.  Eventually the customer gave up and decided to go another route.
