Cell Phone Spy Software to track Calls, Text & WhatsApp
Cell phones, today, can do a lot more than they were able to do 10 years ago. From social media, checking emails and making presentations to using millions of apps available in the iOS and Google Play stores, there isn’t a lot that cell phones cannot do today. While smartphones are a great way of keeping up with the latest technology and making life a little bit easier, they do come at a cost. Cell phones can be easily misused by users and there isn’t much we can do about it.
Mobile Spy is currently the hottest cell phone spy software which can help you monitor what others are doing on their cell phones and see whether they are misusing their privileges. A short summary of Mobile Spy was posted in The New York Times as well, claiming that their software can easily track a number of things from an individual’s mobile phone.
Let’s begin this Mobile Spy review post by answering few common questions about cell phone spy.
Who exactly is mobile spy for?
Mobile Spy is for all the cellphone users who want to track someone. It is a great software for parents to monitor what their children are doing on their cell phones and whether they are lying about their location and so on. Also, it is a great tool for employers if they can give away work phones to their employees and monitor what their employees are doing. For example, a mutual fund employer could hand away work phones to their employees and monitor whether the employees are disclosing confidential information to others outside the company. A spouse might also use Mobile Spy to monitor if their partner is having an affair.
What stuffs can you track?
Mobile Spy can track almost everything on the phone, which you would need in order to monitor what the individual is doing with his/her mobile phone. Here is a list of what you can spy on a target’s cell phone with cell phone spy installed:
- You can record audio and capture images from the phone’s camera
- Social media tracking including posts and messages from Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp
- Spy on text messages including message texts, numbers and time
- Call tracking including numbers dialed, time/duration and call direction
- GPS tracking including maps of all the locations tracked
- All photos and videos recorded from the phone’s camera
- Gmail tracking including email text and time
- Youtube tracking including videos watched and links to the videos
- Instant messaging tracking including reading Facebook messages without being seen, BBM and Whatsapp
- Blocking apps installed on the phone including uninstalling and blocking apps installed on the device
- All phone and email contacts
- Wiping the device remotely
- Sending SMS remotely from the device
- Aside from all these, Mobile Spy also includes a premium Live Control feature which costs additional $49.97 per year. With this feature, you can view the screen of the device, send emails, make calls and get instant locations. While all the features are impressive, the great thing is that you can do all of these in complete stealth, without the user knowing that he/she is being monitored continuously.
Do I need to root my target’s cell phone?
Yes and No. If you are rooted, then you will be able to use all the features available for your cell phone. However, if you are not rooted, then these features won’t be available to you:
- Gmail logs
- spy on someones Facebook private messages
- Twitter messenger logs
- read someones Whatsapp logs
- Live view screenshots from the premium Live Control Panel service
Which smartphones are supported?
Mobile Spy supports all the popular devices including Windows, Android, iOS, Symbian and Blackberry smartphones. For more information on other devices, you can visit the official Mobile Spy Website. The spyware does work on most Android devices running OS version 2.0 to version 4.3.1 and most of the popular iOS versions. In order to check if your device is supported, you can check the compatibility through on their website.
How do I install mobile spy on the target phone if it is password protected?
A lot of mobile users do use passwords and patterns to lock their phones, as a lot of private information is usually stored in the device. If the device you are targeting is password protected, and if you still really want to install Mobile Spy on the device, then you can view see these guides in breaking the target’s password locks.

- Method by XDA member m.sabra
You can try these methods at your own risk, as we haven’t tested these methods. If you don’t want to “hack” into the device, here are some tips to overcome the password/pattern:
- Guessing numerous passwords. You might be able to guess your way around the password by trying options such as birthdays and names.
- You can look at the target user putting in the password/pattern when they use the phone.
- You could make them unlock their device. You can maybe tell them about this new spy app which you want to show them on their device and can then quickly download and install Mobile Spy.
Is there a way that I can secretly and remotely install the app onto the device?
Unfortunately, this is not possible as this tracking software is not available on the Google Play Store and because you need to physically configure the app. Even if you can install it remotely, you will need to physically use the device to launch the app directly from the installation screen as it won’t appear in the app drawer. Just installing the monitoring software won’t be enough and you won’t be able to track anything. You can still install the app without the user knowing with these tips:
- In case you are an employer and want to provide your employees with work phones, it’s extremely easy to simply install the app prior to when you hand the phones over. This same technique can be used by you if you’re a parent who wants to give a phone to their child.
- In case the user already has the phone that you want to install the app on, you can do so when they are otherwise occupied or asleep.
- Another way to do this is to maybe ask the user for their phone in order to play some music and then installing the app in parallel.
The best part of this is that once spy app is installed, the user will have no idea of its existence because it will hide itself right away.
How exactly will I get the monitored information?
You will get all the monitored information on the logs page. You can open this page either on your PC or your smartphone. Once you login with your username and password, you will be able to access all the monitored information.
How much does it cost?
- $49.97 for a 3 month license
- $69.97 for a 6 month license
- $99.97 for a 1 year license
