As of now I see that there are many sites who advertise about the hacking equipment and spy software over INTERNET.

Some of them are listed below:

 

I just wanted to know that is Google now open for advertising like this, they openly sell the spy software for Mobile Phones as well as for computers ?

 

Thanks

Hello and welcome,

 

If I go by the Adwords policy related to illegal hacking, that is simply not allowed with all the conditions mentioned in the policy below:

Hi jackson C,

 

Google AdWords doesn't allow ads or websites that promote hacking by providing instructions or equipment to illegally access or tamper with software, servers, cell phones, or websites.

 

As Adrian B has mentioned, please escalate these ads via the form and Google will appropriate action if the ads are found in violation of our advertising policies.

 

Hope that helps, thanks.
