The quick answer to “Can I Tap A Cell Phone For Free?” is no, not really. Not unless you’re some seriously intelligent electronics and communications expert, and even then you’d have to have equipment available to you that would be by no means free.
I’m wondering if you’re asking that question – can I tap a cell phone for free – for one of the following reasons? You suspect that your husband or wife is having an affair. You wonder whether your girlfriend or boyfriend is cheating on you with another person. You need to monitor your child’s cell phone calls because they have fallen into bad company or they are skipping school. You have an employee that you suspect is either moonlighting or in some other way acting against the interests of your business? Perhaps it is another reason, simply the need to snoop on somebody’s mobile phone or you’re simply curious if it’s possible to spy on a cell phone?
Well, it certainly is possible to tap into a cell phone, in all sorts of ways – and easily, but probably not so easily for free. Whether it’s legal to tap a cell phone is another matter. Essentially, you would need to check your country or State laws, but, in general, it is only legal to use cell phone spying software on a device if you own that target phone. And if you are going to spy on, for example, employees, with phones that you own, you’d better make sure that they understand, and even sign a waiver making it clear that this is a possibility. Privacy laws and individual rights are paramount in this day and age, so you should always make sure that the position that you are taking is clear and checked by a lawyer. Just think about the phone hacking and mobile phone tapping scandals especially rife in the UK at the moment that are implicating high profile media, police and even politicians in outrageous scandals.
