Question

Mobile spy application

by denis_roland3 / August 22, 2013 9:05 PM PDT

For several days I looked for an app to spy on my son's phone. For many of them you have to pay. Do you know a free application? Thanks in advance.

As this does result in spam posts all posts with links will be removed without notice.

-> What you are asking for depends on the make and model phone. The iPhone from what I see requires a JailBreak because such an app is not allowed in the Apple Store.

Just want to answer this because there's no clear answer to this question and this could save more time for people answering this question. Instead of creating another thread.

As for the question of Denis the answer to it is none. I haven't encountered any mobile spy application that could track cellphone for free. I have no intention to scare people for downloading free spyware but the reality is freeware is will only hack your online bank account and worse case you they might even sell this data to cyber criminals.

My experience

If you don't mind, want to share my experience. I've been monitoring spy apps for a long time. Very jealous, and nothing can be done about it Happy Now then...there are lots of them in the internet, but the majority of them is a crap. Fortunately, found some outstanding apps. Spytomobile is my favourite. If you're interested, here's their website: spytomobile,com
It locates, makes tracks, retrieves sms, calls, contacts. But the main advantage to my mind is that you can read "victim's" whatsapp messages. I think many faced with problems in whatsapp messages retreiveing. Thank goodness didn't find such problems in spytomobile. Nice work.

As I get there are many good spy apps like mspy, mobiestealth and stealthgenie but they are paid ones. You can check ispyoo. It is probably free and not bad one.

Why don't just do a search in CNET? Just search "mobile spy" in iOS/Android download center, see what I get: Mobile Spy, iKeyMonitor, Mobi-Spy, Hello Spy... Try by yourself!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
