As an occasional divorce attorney – I have been made very aware of the importance of email and text message security when it comes to divorce issues. I have been told by numerous clients and potential clients how they spouse/ boyfriend/ girlfriend “hacked” their computer and inserting “key logging” software that allowed the suspicious person access to every keystroke made on the hacked computer. Obviously, if someone has no idea their internet use is being recorded, they might be caught off guard.
Now I hear about a similar device that can be used to copy all of the text messages, including deleted texts, that someone has sent on their cell phone. CNN has a report about it — most people would be bored looking at my texts but knowing about this device will open the door to some interesting discovery requests I predict.
