Cell Phone Bug Detection
Cell phone surveillance is perfect for spying due to the size, prevalence, and tendency to always carry one. Additionally, because most modern cell phones can and do connect to the internet, they easily transmit the surveillance information to the person doing the spying. Thus, we always recommend including a sweep of personal items when we are conducting a bug sweep of your home or office.
Our forensic analysts look for indicators of malware, spyware, and rootkits on your cell phone to identify and end spying.
Cell Phone Spy Apps are Widely Available
Unfortunately, there are a variety of spyware apps available for purchase online. Some companies claim their app can be installed remotely. However it is more common that one needs to access your phone for a few minutes to install a spying app. A quick Google search shows many cell phone surveillance options for both Androids and iPhones.
Regardless of their availability, their use is either legal or illegal, depending on the circumstances. For example, covertly installing an app on your spouse is illegal in most jurisdictions. However, installation and use on a company-owned phone, is generally allowed as long as the employee is aware and consents.

The simple design of a landline phone makes them vulnerable to secret wiretapping. A radio receiver can then pick up the sound waves and send it to a speaker or encode it on a tape.
