Search the internet for phonecalls, like some creepy spy
Have you heard about CallTrunk? Doesn't matter because it has probably heard all about you already. The service is available on smartphones, landlines and Skype, lets its users upload recorded calls to an online account and search the contents of their phone conversations.
Basically, CallTrunk is selling itself as a service that allows you to look through calls in a way that's "similar to the way people search their store of old emails." Fine. However, you won't be notified if you're being recorded.
Naturally, it is legal to record calls and store them, however, it is something of a faff. This new service makes it a whole load easier and could lead to privacy and security concerns thanks to the search function, which happens to be called ARGOsearch.
Its ARGOsearch that allows people to search their phone calls for certain spoken words, phone numbers and dates, which according to the company, will "transform the way people will view conversations".
Announcing ARGOsearch, Calltrunk's founder Paul Murphy said: "Until now anything even close to this has been the expensive domain of very big companies. ARGOsearch changes that completely. Enabling everyone to capture store and search their recorded calls means we can all hold on to knowledge and important moments that previously slipped through our fingers."
Recording all your phone conversations and storing them? That's not going to get hacked is it?
