Under the label of parental control, we can find a whole range of spying apps which can be used to get hold of a whole lot of information about what other people are doing on their mobile devices. One of these apps is XNSPY, a service that allows you to monitor both Android and iPhone devices.
Messages, calls, Internet browsing, location...
First of all, it should be pointed out that in order to be able to access the range of functions that this service has to offer you have to register as a user and that means paying money. We should also mention that the mobile device to be spied on needs to have the app that gathers all the information already installed.
Once these two requirements have been met, the following spying functions can be used from the app’s control panel:
- Phone activity with a record of incoming and outgoing calls.
- Online activity: find out which pages have been visited.
- All messaging app activity: WhatsApp, LINE, Skype, Kik, Facebook Messenger, etc.
- Image viewer.
- GPS localization.
- Allows you to block the monitored device and to delete all of its content.
This is a pretty big deal when it comes to monitoring or even controlling someone else’s mobile device. Thankfully, the monitored device needs to have the monitoring app installed on it, meaning that there is some degree of consent, however begrudgingly it may have been granted.
