IRAN could be spying on Brits and Americans using "weaponised" apps which are available on Apple and Google's online stores, an explosive new report has claimed.

The Iranian regime has created their own messaging apps which are spyware-enabled to help them hunt down anti-government protesters in the country, according to the report obtained by The Sun Online.

Mobogram is allegedly spyware enabled and is available to download on Apple's App Store

The most popular of these applications is called Mobogram, which is used by millions of Iranians and is available to download by westerners on Apple's App Store.

The report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, a political group which opposes the Iranian regime, shows that Iranian expats are using Mobogram to communicate with their relatives in the troubled dictatorship.

Deputy Director of the council Alireza Jafarzadeh told The Sun Online that the Iranian regime has "weaponised smartphones" in its bid to thwart demonstrators in the country.

He said: "When you download these apps and start using them, they have the ability to gain access to your contacts, track your location and they can see the content of your communications.
