Technical Details

MobileMonitor.A is a commercial monitoring tool that is marketed to parents who wish to monitor their children's activities on a mobile device. The program tracks the following details:

  • Applications
  • Browsing history
  • Call logs
  • Contacts
  • Location
  • SMS and MMS messages
  • Other system states

MobileMonitor.A uses the same class packages found on two other applications:

  • Biigie, which is found mainly in unofficial Chinese market
  • PhoneBeagle, which is available from the official Android Market

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.
