Does anyone know what the following means if you are Instant Messaging someone and this:

"Electronic Listening Device with Recording System"

shows up all of a sudden from the other person you are IM'ing? Is anyone familiar enough with computers to know what this means?

Thanks, any factual feedback will be appreciated.

All it should mean is that the other person has that capability. For instance the other person has a microphone and software that allows incoming sounds (voices etc.) to be recorded on the computer.

Ideally you should have to give permission, by way of accepting an invitation to join in a voice chat or something similar. However, the technology is there to connect to another's computer system without them knowing.

If you know the other person ask them?

Strength, joy and love to all,
