Privacy Issues Surrounding Forward Cell Phone Directories


Visitors: 190

Everyone has been thankful for the telephone book white pages at one point or another. Being able to look up individuals’ telephone numbers is a convenience that many of us have grown up with, but with the rise of cell phones, it may soon be a thing of the past. Today if you want to know someone's telephone number, and they have a cell phone, you are out of luck. Forward cell phone directories do not exist.

You may know you can use a reverse cell phone lookup to find out who has been calling you. By searching for mysterious numbers, reverse cell phone lookups provide the name and address of mysterious phone numbers. Incoming calls to your cellular phone can cost money or simply become an annoyance. Reverse cell phone lookups can help people who are being harassed to identify the offender and pursue a course of corrective action. This makes reverse cell phone lookups a great way to protect your privacy by helping you keep track of who's been calling you. With this one hundred percent legal tool, you can make sure you're protected.

On the other hand, forward cell phone directories do not exist because they are illegal and invasive to privacy. This is because cell phones are still considered to be private lines. Listing someone's cell phone number in a public directory is considered a criminal invasion of privacy. If you find a site that advertises a forward cell phone directory, you should be highly suspect of any information they provide you. Frequently internet sites that offer impossible services are fronts for identity thieves and computer hackers.

Though our privacy is under constant assault, using a reverse phone lookup can help make sure that you're in charge of your phone line and who calls you. Phone research and lookup legality are hot topics in today's world. Be sure to keep checking the internet for more information as it becomes available.
