Boyfriend tracking app: creepy and crazy or helpful intelligence?

Is an app that lets people track their boyfriend an invasion of privacy, or is it a handy way to keep tabs on your partner who might not be completely honest with you?

A few weeks ago, it was the latter. Girlfriends (and boyfriends, to be fair) were the NSA of their own relationships, spying on their partner’s whereabouts and conversations with an app.

Coming to us from a Brazilian app developer, “Boyfriend Tracker” (Rastreador de Namorados) is an app that appears to have been doing very well, hitting around 50,000 downloads.

The Android app isn’t detectable by the phone’s owner – at least not easily detectable if you get the paid version – which made it the ideal method of following a boyfriend’s tracks.

Boyfriend Tracker doesn’t just send location-based updates to the person who set it up, the app can also forward text messages from the compromised phone back to the installer. Heck, you could even make the target phone call yours, silently, so you could listen in on their conversations.

But last week, the app vanished from the Google Play app store. Google, a company known for being very open with its mobile ecosystem, seems to have possibly found a spine and removed the app.

A Google spokersperson told the Associated Press that it doesn’t comment on why apps are removed. And in fairness, the app has a legal notice that says the recipient of the tracking app should give their consent that they’re being tracked.

But because Google’s ecosystem is so open, there’s nothing stopping you from downloading the app from the app's website (knowledge of Portuguese an asset). The free version will show an app icon on the phone, but shell out a couple more dollars for the premium version and the app is untraceable.

What do you think – is this app a creepy invasion of privacy? Or is it a wise way to have peace of mind in a relationship?

Getting this app is a sign you need to break up and get comfortable with yourself.

Sounds more like something for parents to use in monitoring their child's activities.

I wouldn't be happy if this type of info gathering app was placed on my phone, I'd definitely have an issue with it.
