Spying on Your Spouse

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with TN Mornings at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

Protecting your privacy this morning, there are new apps that claim to help you catch a cheating spouse in the act.

MPSY basically turns your smartphone into a spyphone. Everything you do is uploaded to the cloud for the subscriber to the monitor. It shows where you've been, where you are at that moment, all of your texts, e-mails, photos and browser history.

It even keeps tab of your phone calls and records all of them.

The subscriber would have full control over your phone and could even wipe it clean if they wanted to.

Surprisingly it is legal, but there is one catch. Users must agree that phone's owner knows the monitoring software is install.

In many states, including Washington, privacy laws required require consent of all parties to be recorded and tracked.

Doing so without a person's knowledge in most cases is illegal.

The app is also very hard to remove, because the average person can't find where the software is hidden.
