A new program called PhoneSnoop was recently released that lets people listen in on BlackBerry user’s phone conversation without their knowledge. The way it works is that when a specific number calls you, your BlackBerry will automatically answer it and put it on speaker phone.
Unlike regular viruses and spyware that you get on computers just by surfing a website or opening up an e-mail, this program has to be installed on your phone by someone with physical access to it. So unless you give out your BlackBerry to people to mess with, you should be pretty safe. But if there’s someone in your life that may be concerned about your personal business, you may want to keep your BlackBerry guarded.
But just in case you are still worried about the security of your BlackBerry, a new tool called “Kisses” has been made just for that. It finds any hidden apps that are on your phone and lets you uninstall them.
