    [Request] Secret SMS Logger

    I have a somewhat tech savy 14 year old that has a habit of deleting text messages that she doesn't want me or her mother to see. I installed Spy Droid (from the market) and that worked well for us until she found the app in the app list one day and uninstalled it.
    I need an app that secretly logs (logfile is kept either on the device or sent in email) ALL incoming or outgoing text messages.
    This app must have an uninstall protection similar to that of Wave Secure and it must run in the background (not show up in task killers).

    Does anyone know of such an app? I might be willing to pay upwards of $5 USD for such an app.

    Wouldn't it be pretty easy to have her install wavesecure (or another equivalent program), autobackup the SMS, install a keylogger on your computer, somehow coerce here to sign in and then get the password?

    That is at least how I would try do it.

    Why is it so important to read what your daughter says to her friends?

    if you dont trust her that much just take her phone away... at least that will give her some privacy

    I agree I would take the phone away if it's that much of a concerne. Ultimatley you won't be able to stop her from saying/reading whatever it is that you don't want said/read.

    I think they still make kids phones that only call certain numbers that you program in there. http://www.amazon.com/LG-Verizon-VX1000-Mobile-Child/dp/B002DWXW58
    There's always a chance, Doctor, as long as one can think.

    If what you need is to block her from texting certain people or at certain times Verizon has an add-on for $5 that let you set limits on how many texts per day she can send, block certain times (like during school ) and block certain people too.

    We did that to my sister-in law (she's 14 too) and during school hours she can only receive texts from us (family, just in case of an emergency)
    We set up an schedule to receive SMS from 7:00 am to 8:00 am (school starts at 8:05) and from 2:45 to 10:00 pm. after 10:00 pm she can't send or receive any more texts (only from/to us) and she's limited to 150 texts per day (unlimited to/from us)

    This help us bring her a lot into what she used to be before starting to text like crazy (she was doing over 20K texts per month )

    I hope this can help you.

    You can also get an app locker (App Protector Pro)from the market. Re-add the program she uninstalled then lock it with a password that she doesn't know

    EDIT: oh nevermind i forgot she could just uninstall it

    EDIT: You could always root her phone and not tell her then add the app to "system". Those can't be uninstalled except through root explorer or something similar.

    Her phone is already rooted (i did that). Hmmm...so after the app is installed, just:

    mv /data/app/whatever /system/app/whatever ??

    Will the app still show up in the app list?

    You are looking for a technical solution to a people problem.

    If you are paying the bill, you have the right to see what is on the phone. But the tracker back on and let her know if she uninstalls it, she loses the phone.
