AndSpy.A is a monitoring and anti-theft program that originated from China, but is also marketed to several English speaking regions. Its capabilities can be remotely triggered by sending a particular SMS message to the targeted device. If the message contains a valid command, it will silently perform the corresponding task. For example:
AndSpy.A is a stealthy program. It performs malicious activities quietly, and leaves no visible clue that can indicate its presence on the device.
While apps with such behavior may be legitimately used by the device's authorized user, they are classified by security programs as riskware because in the hands of unauthorized users, they can also be used to cause damage to the user's data or the device.
If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to keep it installed on your device.
