Is it any surprise that our tweeting, emailing, texting, and everything in between is leaving a trail of evidence behind us? After all, we live in a world where key logging technology can be purchased from almost anywhere. PureMobile offers unlocked phone, tablets and along with a myriad category of accessories to protect your mobile devices.
Not so long ago Apple was found to be keeping tabs on its iPhone users’ whereabouts. Now the Android developer Trevor Eckart has come forward with this discovery: his HTC EVO 4G is tracking each keypress, message, and location - this begs for consumer education and choice as these privacy threats grow. Review unlocked phones to avoid potentially harmful limitations in choice.
Carrier IQ's position is that it doesn’t affect privacy concerns because; “Our technology is not real time. It's not constantly reporting back. It's gathering information up and is usually transmitted in small doses.”
They also dispute Eckart’s claim that his key presses were monitored, but with the use of a packet sniffer he was able to track each packet traveling to and from his stock EVO 4G. He was then able to show how each keypress on the numeric keyboard, his browsing data, and his SMS messages were tapped without his knowledge by Carrier IQ software.

The truth may come out in the wash with a legal battle, but in the interim Android users may want to consider alternative mobile devices to keep Big Brother at bay.
