  • Undercover investigation reveals bugging technology is a boom market
  • Suspicious spouses can quickly download the software 
  • They can then eavesdrop on conversations and see texts and photos

An undercover investigation has revealed a rising trend of secret mobile phone apps which can be installed by suspicious partners to spy on their other halves.
In a week-long delve into the shady world of private detectives, India Today TV found a market - both online and offline - awash with invisible bugging software easily downloadable onto the mobile devices of unsuspecting spouses.
The stealth programmes enable people who fear their partner is cheating to remotely eavesdrop on real-time phone conversations, read texts, and track all other actions on their mobile.

With no laws to regulate them, private detectives are openly selling this furtive technology to their clients - for anything in the region of Rs 25,000 per year.
Detective Vibhav Gupta of the Delhi-based Key Investigation company offered to equip an India Today TV reporter, posing as a suspicious husband, with remote surveillance power.
The app he has accessed is usually used by parents to monitor their children's activities, and by companies to keep tabs on dubious employees, he said.
The tool has a key feature: it can’t be spotted once it’s installed on phones.
'I’ll give you a software which you just have to install (on your wife’s phone stealthily). It will only take five minutes for installation. After that her phone’s total control will be in your hands,' Gupta told the undercover reporter.
'What does it mean?' asked the journalist.
Gupta replied: 'You’ll be able to hear all her incoming and outgoing calls.'
'You can check her location, all her contact details. You can see all her text messages, incoming and outgoing. You’ll be able to see all photos she’s sharing.'
As for the cost of the app, the detective quoted an annual charge of Rs 25,000. 
All a potential eavesdropper needs is a few minutes with the target handset.
'If you can get the password of your wife’s phone... I’ll tell you how to install it,' Gupta said.

India Today TV's special investigation team also discovered that these prying software apps are available online, some free of charge.
Many apps work on all platforms - Android, iOS, and BlackBerry. 
Rather than suggesting bugging devices, several other detectives that the team met promised to obtain and sell unlawfully-accessed call detail records (CDRs) to the reporters posing as suspicious spouses.
'We will not hand that (any physical copy) over to you. We’ll study it (CDRs) and let you know which number she’s been calling on regularly,' said Rahul Kumar of D.M. Detectives in Noida.
Kumar asked for Rs 70,000 for sharing CDRs spanning three months. 
Vikram Singh of Krishna Detectives, which operates out of Chankaya Place in Delhi, claimed that multiple agencies and touts were involved in the racket engaged in stealing the CDRs. 
He said: 'I would get it done through various agencies, then they have their agents. If we had a client asking for them (CDRs), we’ll get them out for him.'
