A new "cheating" app is getting a lot of attention from jealous partners!
mCouple app shows text messages, contacts, call history, and Facebook messages in real time.
It can even show you the GPS co-ordinates of the phone, allowing you to see exactly where your partner is at all times
To use the app, the users must agree to having it installed on their phone.
However, internet users have pointed out it is possible to simply buy a phone, load the software, then give it to your partner.
Users can share IDs and start “mutually tracking” each other’s devices.
This is because the app runs it what the company calls ‘stealth mode’ and doesn’t appear in the phone owner’s apps list.
It works in a similar way to encryption lockers that are designed to be hidden deliberately and can only be found by the installer. These apps, however, are designed to protect information and privacy.
Subscribers can choose to sync the data automatically, only over Wi-Fi, or manually and if automatic sync is selected the data is updated every 30 minutes.
Users can then track this information from anywhere by signing into an online account and viewing it all on a dashboard.
The dashboard produces charts that show which apps have been used and how often, while the person’s location is plotted on to a map.
