UNITED STATES (NBC33) -- There's a new app that's raising eyebrows and privacy concerns. It lets you secretly monitor someone's phone calls, texts and photographs.

Brazil is a country known for its beauty and passion. But mix those with love, jealousy and technology and you've got a volatile mix called Boyfriend Tracker.

For just $2 a month you can now secretly hide this app on your beloved's phone and without them knowing, listen to every call, read every text, and look at every photograph they take.

It started in Brazil but is also available in the United State. Send a text saying “Let’s meet for dinner. I hope nobody sees this message” and it’s recorded on a website. Pose for a picture, same thing. And the conversation you thought was private isn’t as private as you would have assumed.

GPS maps their every move. And there is no quick way to remove it from your phone.
