Can you Legally Track a Cell Phone?

There are now quite a large number of phone spy software packages available. Most of these offer a wide range of features that allow the user to collect a vast amount of data about how the target phone is being used.

People who use cell trackers tend to do so for a variety of reasons. A large percentage of users tend to be either checking up on their partners, their employees or children.

Are Cell Phone Trackers Legal?

One of the questions that a lot of potential cell spy users asks is ‘are cell trackers legal?’

Obviously laws vary dramatically from country to country but generally speaking the simple answer is yes, it is legal to track a cell phone!

That said it is always advisable to check that you will not be breaking any laws if you use cell tracking software in your particular country or state. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

Almost without exception the adverts for cell spy software will promote the products features and ease of use. They do not normally dwell too much on the legal aspects of using the software. Generally any information relating to how the software can be used legally is displayed, not too prominently, at the bottom of one of the sites pages.

There is usually a disclaimer of some sort that states that it is the users responsibility to ensure that they use the software lawfully.

Most of the legal constraints regarding the use of cell phone trackers relates to a persons’ right to privacy. In other words if you secretly obtain access to someone’s phone and download the software onto it without their knowledge you are most probably breaking the law. If you load the software onto someone’s phone with their consent then you are unlikely to be committing any offence.

How to use cell spy software legally.

There are occasions when monitoring someone’s phone can be justified.

Parental Guidance

As a parent you are responsible for the safety of your children. From a very young age children have their own phones and mobile devices. They spend countless hours online twittering, emailing, texting and updating their social media profiles. When they are not doing that they are visiting websites and downloading all types of data to share with their friends.

Unfortunately the internet can be a dangerous place. Children, and teenagers, can be accessing websites that contain inappropriate content. They can become the target of internet bullying or could be visiting chat rooms and befriending people who are not who they appear to be.

Monitoring a child’s phone can be an excellent way of helping to ensure that they stay safe online. Cell trackers, such as Easyspy cell tracker, can monitor the position of the phone. It can also enable you to eavesdrop on telephone conversations, emails, texting and social media activity. In fact there is very little information that is sent to, or from, the phone that cannot be monitored.

In a lot of cases a child’s phone is given to them by their parents. If this is the case you are unlikely to be breaking any laws by loading tracking software onto it prior to giving them the phone.

Generally speaking you cannot covertly track another person’s without their permission. The law regarding privacy is however somewhat different with regard to minors (anyone below the age of legal consent). Monitoring a child’s phone can therefore be considered as an additional way of providing parental care and guidance.

Monitoring Employees Cell Phones

Many employers are concerned about the cell phone activity of their employees. Are they working or are they simply chatting to friends or even updating their facebook pages? Is your sales representative actually with one of your clients or is he simply improving his handicap?

Monitoring employees phones can be an excellent way of keeping track of their calls and online activity.

It is generally accepted that in order to be able to legally monitor a phone you need to be the owner of the phone. Secondly the person using the phone should be made aware of the fact that the phone is being monitored.

Therefore if you supply your employees with smart phones, and make it a condition of their employment that they are only allowed to bring their official works phone into the office, you can legally monitor the device. Providing of course that you let them know it is being monitored!

Catch a cheating spouse!

Using a cell phone tracker to catch a cheating spouse or partner poses something of a problem. If you are trying to catch them cheating you are unlikely to do it with a cell tracker if they are aware that their phone is being tracked. It rather defeats the object of the exercise. Therefore it follows that the majority of people who track their spouses phones to try and catch them cheating do it ‘covertly’. This is obviously not a legal use of the software as you are violating the privacy of the cell phone owner. It will however help you to determine whether or not your suspicions were correct.

If you do covertly track a cell phone belonging to your spouse any information that you gather is unlikely to be admissible in any subsequent divorce proceedings. You could in actual fact find yourself in court for illegally monitoring the device in the first place.

Cell spy software, such as Easyspy Cell Phone Tracker, definitely has its uses. If you are considering tracking a cell phone then it is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the device legally by checking the law regarding cell spy software in your particular country or region.
