Technical Details

Lifemonspy.A is a monitoring and anti-theft program that provides user with some control of the device through SMS messages. It allows the user to perform these actions from a remote location:

  • Deleting contacts
  • Deleting contents of the external storage (SD card)
  • Transferring SMS messages in the inbox to a Gmail account
  • Deleting previously sent messages from the outbox
  • Turning off the device

The program places no visible icon on the menu screen, but can be seen listed on the 'Manage applications' window. From time to time, it forwards the device's location to a remote website.

Upon detecting a change in the device's Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), Lifemonspy.A will send out an alert message to a configured number and log the event on the aforementioned website.
