    Exclamation [PSA] Spy apps and the law

    As I see more and more of threads about spying/wiretapping apps here and the blatant disregard of local, federal, and internationaly laws I am making this thread to list the laws of various countries as well as help anyone who suspects they have such an app installed on their phone without permission.

    Australia: Illegal except for law enforcement and the following business situations: to protect you in your dealings with the organization, to provide a record in the event of a dispute about the transaction, to improve customer service.

    Canada: The person must be informed they are being tapped, they must be informed of the reason why, and if person objects to it, the organization should provide the caller with meaningful alternatives. The alternatives might involve not taping the call; visiting a retail outlet; writing a letter; or, conducting the transaction over the Internet.

    Denmark: Generally legal, but the use of the information may be subject to local laws.

    Finland: Same as Denmark with the exception of employers/companies: Recording of calls by a company or an employer is subject to data protection legislation and, as a general rule, requires informing the participants prior to recording.

    Germany: Both parties must be informed. Tapping by authorities has to be approved by a judge.

    India: Illegal unless approved by a designated authority.

    Latvia: Same as Denmark.

    New Zealand: There general prohibition on the use of interception devices. An exception is made for when the person intercepting the call is a party to the conversation.

    Turkey: Both parties must be aware.

    United Kingdom: Generally illegal except for government agencies. Businesses may record with the knowledge of their employees, but without notifying the other party to provide evidence of a business transaction, ensure that a business complies with regulatory procedures, see that quality standards or targets are being met, protect national security, prevent or detect crime, investigate the unauthorized use of a telecommunications system, or secure the effective operation of the telecommunications system.

    United States: One, both, or all parties must be notified(this varies by state but is at least one).

    It is very common that employers use the spy app to monitor their employees.
