If I jailbreak my iPhone, and remove the Cydia app - will the jailbreak be noticeable for the user in general? How can I tell if a iPhone is jailbroken if Cydia is removed? (I have searched in the forum, but not found and posts on this issue ...)

If there's no cydia then the iPhone is probably not jailbroken.. And if it is actually jailbroken and you can't see the cydia app then the cydia app may be hidden using SBsettings, Poof or any other tweak..

My iPhone is being used by several family members. This is ok for me, but I have set strict rules for using it, e.g. no "bad" websites etc. I suspect it is being used to other things than intended, so I want to jailbreak it and install a keylogger, to monitor the activity on my phone. If I do this, I do not want the users to notice that it is jailbroken. ... so ... will it be noticed if I remove Cydia?

Just download SBsettings and use it to hide cydia.. Otherwise you can remove cydia and still be jailbroken.. Cydia IS the jailbreak..

Cydia is an application for downloading applications that are not offered in the App Store. It has ZERO to do with the jailbreak or the jailbreak process. Jailbreaking is the process of restoring root access and the super user account and Cydia is not required for that to occur.
