Spying on cell phones is a heated topic that millions of people all around the world are talking about on a daily basis. The usage and dissemination of these apps took an upturn when countries like United States legalized their use for parental and employee monitoring.
But that’s not how mobile spying software are used in reality. Because these apps have the ability to discreetly work on a mobile device, they are used too often for spying on others’ location.
Xnspy is an app that has been making a global influence in the spying app industry due to its cheaper subscriptions, fully-discreet spying and features that can easily entice anyone to spy on their kids or employees. For some people, it’s just plain fun to spy on their friends; for others it’s about keeping tabs on their kids’ activity. For the most, it’s about spying on their partners or employees, where the trust factor seems marginal.
But compatibility is a major issue when it comes to spying on mobile phones. There are different smartphone manufacturers, various OS and dozens of firmware; all of them having their own unique restrictions that could resist a spy app.
But before we move on with this read, remember that we aren’t endorsing anyone to use a mobile spying software on others’ cell phones or tablets without taking their consent; nor does Xnspy recommends you to do so. On the app’s official website, they have categorically mentioned that their app can only be used for monitoring kids’ or employees’ electronic devices by the owners (of those devices) after taking the consent of the person to be monitored.
Moving on with why Xnspy is making waves in the mobile spying industry with its app, here is an example.
“My son was so obsessed with his cell phone and mobile apps that I got truly desperate to limit his cell phone usage. Xnspy came on the top of my Google search for mobile spying apps; I downloaded it onto my child’s Android smartphone after doing some research of my own; and now, I have full control on how my son uses his cell phone”, says Amanda [source: Xnspy Blog].
Parents are using monitoring apps to track their kids’ online and offline activity, but not many of them are actually abiding by the rules that guard these apps.
An “Ask Reddit” thread by the title “Children of helicopter parents: What was the worst or most embarrassing thing they put you through?” that was posted last year has 13919 comments where kids have posted the most embarrassing and worst things that they had experienced during their upbringing.
One Reddit user Wott posted a comment “My parents were furious when they found out I had watched The Hunger Games at a friend’s house. Same thing happens whenever I watch a movie rated PG or above and they’re not there to fast-forward through the kissing scenes and mild cursing. My dad has software on my phone that tells him whatever I do on the internet. This includes texting and calling. He’ll probably see this, but I don’t care.
I’d better stop typing now, they might catch me.”
Kids don’t care, and that’s what’s encouraging parents to use a mobile spying software.
Then, these apps are also used for spouse/partner spying. Reddit.com is full of questions about how partners can spy on each other. XNSPY is powerful and when it’s about spying, it can literally take every piece of information from a monitored smartphone and provide that to its users. For instance, if you are spying on someone’s phone using this app, then you will access to their call logs, text messages, emails, internet browsing history, social media, contacts, and even all kinds of shared and stored multimedia.
Talking about the compatibility, this app works with all Android phones and tablets running Gingerbread 2.3 or above (Nougat 7.0 compatible), and on iOS devices, you can use it on iOS 6.0-10.0.
What’s the future of our privacy?
The future of our privacy isn’t bleak, and you don’t have to buy that; not at least with a mobile monitoring app that requires a physical access to the target device for its installation.
If you don’t want someone to spy on your cell phone, there are numerous ways to take care of that:
- Don’t let someone to use your smartphone in your absence. If someone needs to make a call or text from your cell phone, let them do it in front of you.
- Keep a strong password on your device that’s not easy to guess; it’s the easiest way someone can break into your phone.
- You might not be able to find if someone is using a spyware on your phone, but you can still look for clues like battery drainage issues, hang ups, etc. If there is something anomalous going on with your cell phone, factory reset it instantaneously after backing up your data.
