I have a problem of spyware. I found spyware with name InnovaSpy at Innovaspy.com. It can steal data such as calls logs, photo, SMS, GPS, Contact ... and it sent to the computer. I want to know that can it be installed on the computer? if it is installed on the computer, can it steal the data on the computer? Sorry for the stupid question because I do not know much about spyware.
And spyware is a virus, is not it? i can destroy it in any way?

Hello -

I am aware of this "program", and that is "Spyware", but it can be used legally by some people.


Can you please tell me if your computer, Ipad, or your phone is infected ?

Or are you just seeking further information about this infection / program ?


Thank You -

Publisher's Description provided by CNET

As noknojon advises, these types of program can have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user, business IT tech or administrator has knowingly installed them. Even a parent may use them to monitor their children's activities as this particular program is intended for.

However, many monitoring programs are often detected by anti-virus and anti-malware software as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) due to their potential for being misused by others.

I do not know much about spyware. And spyware is a virus, is not it?
