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:
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.

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.
