    I don't see why this isn't a hot issue in the media but apparently it's now considered "normal" to be spied on and surveilled while you are using modern technology.

    It's just far too easy for literally anyone to to get hold of apps to spy on someone's mobile. They can see exactly where a target is at any one time and they can literally follow them from street to street. A mobile phone can easily be turned into a spy camera and they can even download all your personal photos.

    The following is a list of search results after typing in "mobile phones spying". Almost all the returns in the top ten were adverts for spy apps enabling you to spy on someone's mobile phone. Three of these returns are shown here:

    I sometimes wonder why the batteries on some mobile phones completely drain flat after a few days even though the phone hadn't actually been used even once during that time.

    What is causing all that power usage?

    Just because you're paranoid, that doesn't mean that they're not watching you.

    Are you taking this seriously Creasy Tvedt?

    What if someone spied on your own mobile phone or someone you knew? It's questionable whether the whole thing is legal at all.

    Don't forget the News of the World, one of the world's biggest English language circulating newspapers, was closed down because it was caught using mobile phone spyware.

    Yes, I take breaches of privacy very seriously, but I also think you're a paranoid schizophrenic to a certain degree, and your obsession with surveillance is preventing you from addressing your mental health issues.

    Creasy Tvedt, are you qualified to make a diagnosis like that?

    Are the likes of Edward Snowden paranoid as well? Let's be serious.

    Everything I've said on this thread is completely FACTUAL and well sourced. There's not one single thing I've stated that could possibly be delusional.

    This is a serious subject and is not to be laughed at.

    Here's a story which came out a few months ago about government mobile phone hacker technology that was being misused by authoritarian governments. However as we have seen such mobile phone hacker/spyware is freely available to anyone on the open market. You can even buy it yourself online.

    I also think this topic should get more attention. I know people who would go to the extreme with these things if they knew about them.

    divorces make people go crazy. Most of us probably know someone that went through a divorce. Could you imagine them getting their hands on one of these?

    The aristos aren't spying on you, dude, because you're a nobody, and anybody spying on you would get nothing for it but bored to tears.
    TV reception? Aerials?

    What year is it where you live? 1974? Why are you still watching broadcast TV on your Marconi set, Fred Flintstone?

    Sounds to me like you have spied on him if you know this. Do you have some sort of fetish here or what?

    I'm in his microchip fiddling with the interbauds.

    Paranoid schizos are my kink.

    Only my God can judge me.

    You're mixing together two different threads here and you're taking the discussion off topic.

    But apparently you are legally qualified as well as being medically qualified.

    I live in the UK. If you look up to the rooftops you will often seen TV antenna and some perople have them in their attics as well.

    It's called Freeview.

    If you really believed I had the medical condition you claimed I had, then you wouldn't have been able to make a wise crack like that.

    Why is the UK still doing broadcast TV? Don't you have the internet?

    Is it a poor people thing? Does your socialist government still provide free broadcast TV for the poors who can't afford the interwebs? Socialist governments love handing out free everything to the poors.
    Why? Would you have used your schizo brainwaves to incapacitate me or something?

    Maybe I'm a figment of your paranoid mind.

    Or maybe I'm watching you through your toaster right now.

    Of course "they" are. Bunch of nosey Nadines.

    The agent assigned to to monitor James7's activities must be bored out of his gourd.

    He has to sit and watch a paranoid guy in the UK fiddle with his rabbit ear antennas all day so he can tune in the BBC, poor blighter.

    You have nothing intelligent to say on this topic and you are sarcastic.

    I wouldn't disagree with the above sentiment at all, however there may be some discussion available as to who exactly the "they" you are talking about are.

    It could involve a whole number of different groups and not just the government; organised criminals, sex offenders, someone with a grudge against you, moral crusaders, the far right, the far left/anarchists, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

    And even though there is the strong possibility your own government is being exceptionally paranoid and treating you as a person of interest, there is also the possibility that a dozen other governments across the planet may also be stalking you because they also have their own agendas of influence and control. And you can't say this never happens as the Russians have been accused of doing it.

    I once heard it stated that mobile devices were immune from spyware and viruses because of "sandboxing". But that was probably just BS.

    Some mobile spying apps promote it as "friendly" to spy on someone's mobile. Here are 6 "friendly" mobile spying apps which can include keyloggers so you can even pick up passwords:
