So it doesn’t matter if it’s a friend or relative, the spy will always be breaking the law.

Now, you have to understand that there are basically two ways to be spied on. It could be that someone has access to your device or account, in which case they don’t need software. But the spy could also be using a program to gain access to the information.

If you use WhatsApp Web, for example, always cancel the connection after use. Otherwise, anyone using the same machine can have access to your messages. Just go to “Connected Devices” to find out what was the last view.
