Here we tried to give you a complete review of mSpy so that you can decide whether to buy it or not. We give you some recommendations if you will not find mSpy a perfect choice. Also, we will compare it with other topnotch smartphone monitoring solutions which will also help you to choose a suitable app. Let’s start with its features:
Features Offered by mSpy App for iPhone, iPad, and Desktop
Let us discuss all features of mSpy which are relevant to you and which are not. They provide some basic features like calls and SMS access since these are very basic in nature and almost all spy apps must possess them. But here, we will discuss all features from basic to advanced. Let’s start:
It allows you to check incoming and outgoing calls with the timestamp on the target phone, and you can also block any particular number, that number can’t connect to the target phone after blocking.
To make it a perfect child monitoring device for parents, mSpy added the feature of text spy because children engage with new people on text messages instead of phone calls. That is the reason this feature available here. It allows you to monitor text messages and MMS of the target phone.
Monitoring of Instant Messengers
Yes, it is true they provide monitoring of all major instant messengers but the main question is that is this feature really works? Let’s explain in detail.
At the time of purchase, it is important for you to know what are the requirements for each feature because some features have some special requirements. These requirements must meet before activating these features. If you want to monitor instant messengers (WhatsApp, Skype, BBM, etc) of the target phone, you need the following things:
- If you want to monitor an Android device, then it should be rooted which means you require rooting before accessing its instant messengers’ chat. To know more about rooting, you can visit here
- In the case of the iPhone or iPad, Jailbreaking is required. It is the same process as rooting in Android. You can know more about it here
Note: If you don’t want to jailbreak the target device, there is another option of No-jailbreak solution. In this solution, you don’t require to jailbreak the target Apple device, know more about this solution here
GPS tracking is one of the most powerful features of a spy app (if work properly). We found this feature working good in mSpy. Conventional GPS is not sufficient these days, that’s why you need some extra thing. After reviewing, we found one thing extra in this app and it is GPS fencing. Which means, you can fence any area as dangerous or safe for the target phone. When the target device crosses the fences, you will get an alert and this will be a useful feature for you.
Control the Installed Apps and Programs
This feature allows you to check the complete list of programs installed on the target cell phone. Also, you can block any of them if you don’t want the target user to use it. In our testing, it worked good and is a useful feature for parental control.
Spy the Gallery
It is one of the most useful features which can help you to totally peep into the target smartphone. You can see images stored on the phone along with videos and audios with timestamps. Like other features, it is also synchronous in nature which means you can see all multimedia in your mSpy account as soon as they are uploaded in the target smartphone.
While testing this app, we found this feature working well as mSpy says. Images uploaded to the mSpy dashboard as soon as these are captured.
In this feature, the mSpy monitoring app allows you to know about the internet activities of the target user. That means you are now able to check websites visited on the target phone’s browser and bookmarks saved on it. This way you can judge the current behavior of your child on the internet, which can help you to keep an eye on him. You can catch him if you find any 18+ websites visited by him.
Emails, Contacts, and Calendar
mSpy also allows spying the emails, contacts and calendar activities on the target smartphone. This way, it provides you the complete access to the target person’s phone. Nowadays, if you have access to someone’s smartphone that means you know about him 80%. Smartphones tell about the person’s thinking, friend circle, behavior, and many more things. So if you use this app in a legal way, you can use it as a great protector.
