Google Removes Creepy ‘Boyfriend Stalker’ App

Google has removed Rastreador de Namorados from Google Play Brazil, according to reports. Apparently the ‘Boyfriend Tracker’ app is just a little bit too creepy.

The app lets users install a tracking device on their significant other’s cell phone and then get first person access to his text messages, his location and even listen to what happens around him. ”Make your boyfriend take a detective in your pocket: install Tracker on his cell phone,” explains the website.

Essentially you have to install the app on your boyfriend’s phone while he isn’t looking, and then the app becomes a personal tracking device for everywhere he goes. It tracks his location, records his messages and his conversations. Then you have to steal the phone back from him to check out his whereabouts. (Via The  International Business Times).
