(DAILYMAIL) — Mobile phone apps which allow wives and husbands to spy on their spouses by monitoring their whereabouts as well as their calls and text messages will be banned under a new law to be put before congress.

Software companies are currently able to sell so-called cyberstalking apps that operate secretly on cellphones thanks to a loophole in current laws.

Apps such Retina Software’s SpouseSpy or ePhoneTracker, which sell for around $50 online, have become increasingly popular among jealous wives or husbands, but there are concerns they could be encouraging stalking and domestic violence.
