What can these android monitoring apps do for you?
Android spy apps take you on a complete round of the phone or tablet that you set-up for monitoring. Here is a list of things that you can easily do with these apps.
Monitor incoming and outgoing calls:
More or less, all Android spy apps let you monitor the dialed and received calls on the target device. However some advanced features provided by selective apps enable you to tap live calls by sending a secret SMS or a hidden call to the desired phone. They also give you the function to determine the duration of interception, record and save the audio files on your control panel as well as download them to your mobile, laptop or desktop, whatever you use to access your account.
Read text messages:
Android monitoring software programs enable you to extract all message logs, whether short or instant and send them to your web account. They also give you the names and numbers of each sender and recipient, marked with the date and time at which any message was sent or received. Some of them also let you retrieve old and deleted messages. A good number of spy apps also allow you to read the messages sent and received through social media platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and other such messengers.
Track the locations:
An Android spy app works in synchronization with the GPS and provides you the co-ordinates for the exact location of the target, any time you want. Moreover, these spy apps keep a record of all the previous places visited by the subject and provide you a graphical representation on Google map, for you to understand it better. This feature provides dual benefits: firstly it not only help you to keep a check on the target’s whereabouts, it also helps you locate your device in case it is stolen or lost.
Monitor browsing history:
Android spy software keeps you abreast of the browsing habits of your target, may it be your child, spouse or employee. It gives a detailed record of the internet browsing history, including the websites visited, the frequency and duration of visit as well as the date and time at which each visit took place. Some apps also have the smartness to excavate old and deleted webpages. In addition, you can also view the bookmarked pages that can give you an idea about the interests of the target.
How you may use it?
Android monitoring software can be used for different reasons but the salient purpose at hand is to be sure that the target is behaving in a proper way and not violating any ethical and legal boundaries.
Let’s have a quick look at its different applications in our daily lives:
Parental control application:
The question is why we need parental control application? It is common nowadays for teenagers to have a handset with them at all times. Some of their activities on their smartphones may be obvious but there is a lot more that they keep to themselves. Parents can use Android spy apps to monitor their mobile usage, such as checking out their messages, call logs, internet history, locations and much more. This way they can be sure that their child is not getting off the track, as in by sitting in bad company or by viewing adult & inappropriate content over the internet.
Moreover, by tracing their social media activity, parents can find out if their children are not becoming victims to cyberbullying.
Employee monitoring application:
Research on this subject shows that a big chunk of employees use their company time for non-work related activities such as using social media, chatting, online shopping and playing games. In a small organization, such kind of deviations can be easily noticed. But when it comes to companies that work on a mega-scale and have thousands of people working under them, it is very difficult to keep a watch on each one of them. In such cases, it is advisable to install Android spy apps on the company phones, before handing them over to the employees. This way, their deviations from work and loyalty to the company can be recorded and used as an evident proof by the managers and directors to sieve out people for the yearly promotions and appraisals. Plus, it also helps trace physical locations of the employees, especially those who work in the field. As it is incumbent upon the company to inform its members about the surveillance, it also discourages people from plotting conspiracies and bullying their colleagues, for the fear of getting fired.
What’s more interesting is that you may install an Android monitoring app on your own, personal cell phone. Now how can that be helpful?
Firstly, at times we need to reboot our devices, that can wipe out all data from our mobile phones. Instead of rushing here and there, plugging your device to other systems for transfer of data, Android spy software provide you with enough online space to save your phone data and create a back-up that is secure and can be accessed at any time.
Secondly, if your smartphone gets lost or stolen, you can, not easily trace its location from your control panel but also be saved from the hassle of gathering your data again.
Most android monitoring apps come in two basic packages; basic and premium, the difference being in the price and the number of features offered.
However, a few companies provide full functionality for all their packages, differentiating them from each other by the duration for which the license remains valid. A good example of one such enterprise is TheOneSpy.
How to use it?
In order to use an Android spy software, you need to log in to your personal account/control panel available on the company’s website. However, as it is not feasible for you to carry your laptop or desktop everywhere, TheOneSpy has launched its Android cell phone monitoring navigation app, named as TOS, which is available at the Play Store, Amazon, and Opera Store. This app facilitates its users to monitor their subjects, using all the features of the original cell phone monitoring software from anywhere around the globe.
