Nowadays, our privacy level has dropped to the minimum due to our bad habit of publishing every single detail of our life on social networks of the likes of Facebook or Instagram, to the abusive conditions that we agree to regarding the treatment of our personal data on the Internet or to certain messaging applications that can be used by anyone to have us under the radar 24/7.
And if that weren't enough, there are also surveillance applications like WhatsDog for Android (sorry, iPhone users... the App Store doesn't allow this kind of application) in charge of monitoring the connection status of any WhatsApp user. And regardless of whether that person has blocked us or has enabled the option that hides that information. Therefore, it's a rather shabby spying method that anyone can make use of.
Your contacts won't realize your spying on them or that you're checking on their connection times.
How does it work?
Well, it's quite simple. You only have to introduce the number of the person that you want to spy one in order to generate a report about his WhatsApp connection times. The latter will be registered by dates and hours by means of a calendar and also include stats regarding the time spent by the contact online each day.
Are there alternatives to this application?
Well, Google Play and WhatsApp are very careful. This type of application that violates the user's confidentiality, as well as WhatsApp's conditions of use, wouldn't stand a chance on the official Android market nowadays. These apps are tracked down in order to remove all WhatsApp spies or any other service of this kind, and this instant messaging platform is making an effort to increase the security and privacy of the conversations held on its app in order to cover possible cracks used by this kind of spyware.
So, there aren't any alternatives to this application capable of surviving Google's censorship more than just a few days. Even the latest version of WhatsDog 5.0.0 published in August of 2016 by Secondlemon only works intermittently.
We obviously don't wish to promote the use of this kind of application. We consider that everyone should be entitled to enjoying their free time and personal life as they wish, and there's no possible justification for knowing how and when anyone uses their WhatsApp account.
