A certain review caught my attention and made me want to write this article. This reviewer wanted to let us know that he thinks we are hacking his account after installing Ear Spy.
First of all, let me explain why Ear Spy was created.
Ear Spy was created because of Eric Wroolie’s (Owner of Overpass) fascination of spy gadgets and it was inspired by the undercover secret agent movies he watched when he was a kid. We believe that most of those spy gadgets in the movies can now be accessible and available on your smartphone. So that’s why Ear Spy was created.
How to use it?
Here’s our detailed description of Ear Spy.
( which people usually don’t read before installing the app)
Ear Spy attempts to improve your hearing with the power of Android. Depending on how good your phone is, it can become a high-powered listening device (like a hearing aid or a super Spy App). It is the Ultimate Eavesdropping Tool — the latest in personal espionage.
Click on the centre button, and you can hear the world around you. Use it to observe your surroundings and monitor what is going on.
Whether you want to eavesdrop on conversations or just hear the TV better, Ear Spy aims to give you super hearing and improve what you hear. There’s more going on around you than you might realise. It’s time to hear it.
HEADPHONES REQUIRED. Failure to use headphones will result in awful audio feedback. You have been warned!
So Ear Spy is a “Super Spy” application which gives you super-hearing and the ability to eavesdrop on those around you and not an application to spy on you or try to hack your account. If you are concerned about your privacy. Here’s what we can say:
We do not collect or store any information about the users of this application. Once you download it, it runs on your phone and never communicates with our servers.
If you are curious about how we make money, it is from Ads and sales only. We do not collect any information about you. We use Google Analytics which provides us with anonymous data.
Concerned about your Security?
Ear Spy is perfectly safe to use. But make sure you get the official version from Google Play (and not a file sharing site): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microphone.earspy
And lastly, Ear Spy is not a wiretap and cannot be used to tap anyone’s phone. It does not violate the privacy of anyone else’s phone. It simply allows you to hear better. We do not condone using Ear Spy to break laws or intrude on private conversations. Please use Ear Spy responsibly. Check to see what is legal in your country before using it.
I hope this article somehow makes it clear what Ear Spy is all about. It has stayed for long on the App store and now ranking high with over 3 million downloads and almost 300 thousand still installed (as of today on Google Play). Ear Spy abides with the app store’s policies and that made it stay in the app store for long.
So can Ear Spy hack your account?
We understand your suspicion but definitely NO. We don’t spy on you and we don’t have intentions of hacking your account, we’ve got a lot of better things to do.
Enjoy the app!
