We no longer offer stealth mode version of the Android app. In spite of its legitimate usage, it is increasingly considered to be a malicious software. Google Play Store does not allow our normal app to link to the stealth app. We decided to remove this version.

This change does not affect existing users that are running the stealth app. Those stealth app will continue to function and remain stealth.

Contact us when you have questions.

How sad. Have you considered allowing it as a download from followmee.com for those that want to side load it?

Yes indeed...
I hope it is stil supported for a few years.
Then we could still use the previous old stealth version.

If not, then in combination with the "price model change", then it is not worth paying.
I Paid for multiple devices in advance, and now with the "price model change" I paid for nothing.

If there is nothing worth paying for, then you could simply use the Google Location service for free.

If Google Play Store does not allow to link to the stealth app you could still provide it by your own webpage.

I believe Google blocks it to promote its own Google Location service.

This will be a very big issue for company who provided cell phone to employees and track their daily deliver footprint.

1. will current version of the app auto update and render the stealth mode useless?

2. will you offer previous versions (apk) to download so that users can still use stealth mode?

Hi, johnysmythwithay:

If you are running the stealth app right now, it will remain stealth. It won''''t update itself automatically.

Email us if you have special request.
