It’s 10 p.m. do you know where your novio is?

Up until last week, tens of thousands of Brazilians were able to track their significant others thanks to a smartphone app called the “Boyfriend Tracker.”

The very popular app promised users to act as a “private detective in your partner’s pocket,” and allowed suspicious lovers  to receive tracking updates on their partner’s whereabouts, as well as receive duplicates of text messages trafficked from the trackee’s phone. According to Fox News Latino, the app also offered a feature that allowed users “to force the target phone to silently call their own, like a pocket dial, so that they could listen in on what the person was saying.”
