Can cell phone companies track text messages

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post talking about a couple of ways that people could reduce their spending on their wireless phone bill , or on their mobile data usage.   I talked about a couple of services that I had considered signing up for that were both potentially free. One was a cell service provider that when you shared the service with friends and they signed up, you would get money off on your bill for as long as your friends used the service.   Potentially you could end up making money as well.

The other service that I mentioned was a 3G/4G wireless data provider called FreedomPop .  Basically with FreedomPop you are able to get 500MB of free 4G data every month, all you have to do is sign up for the service and put down a refundable deposit on one of their wireless hotspots.

After writing about the service I was pretty intrigued, and when my month of service with my Virgin Mobile hotspot ran out, I jumped in and signed up for FreedomPop.

Whether you just have nosy neighbors, an overzealous partner or maybe even someone stalking you there is a real possibility that your cell phone is bugged. Your location, text messages and even voice conversations can easily be recorded and sent to others without your knowledge. Personal details like your bank account information along with the passwords for your email and social media accounts can be obtained as well. What used to be dismissed as paranoia and conspiracy theory is now a very real threat to your privacy and security.

The first step to protecting yourself from the prying eyes or ears of an unauthorized listener is to understand not only how to detect their methods but also how it is possible for them to spy on you. While technology has made our lives easier in many situations it has also made tapping your cell phone easier for those who intend on using it for devious purposes. The days of hidden microphones and wiretaps are becoming a thing of the past. Currently it is easier to spy on people with the use of software which can be installed remotely so that the person watching you doesn’t even need physical access in order to bug your cell phone.

Recent revelations by whistle blowers like Edward Snowden have brought to light technology which allows your phone to appear as if it is turning off when in fact it stays on and the microphone can be used to monitor any sounds within hearing distance of your cell phone. While you may not be worried about what the NSAs intentions are for this ability we must acknowledge that like anything else that exists these days it is only a matter of time before this software ends up in the wrong hands giving criminals even more access to your personal information.
