Is Spyware Legal?

Is Spyware illegal? Even though the name may indicate so, Spyware is not an illegal type of software in any way. However there are certain issues that a privacy oriented user may object to and therefore prefer not to use the product. This usually involves the tracking and sending of data and statistics via a server installed on the user's PC and the use of your Internet connection in the background. If this is the kind of information transfer you want to avoid, you should look into a spyware blocker to protect yourself and your information security.
