Hoverwatch is WhatsApp, Snapchat and Instagram spying software. It requires registering your account to install and start using the mobile app. Users are required to add their e-mail address to be appropriately identified.
Purchasing a Hoverwatch subscription user has to insert e-mail address. Sometimes users add wrong e-mails in the field.
Hoverwatch has predicted situations like that. Any user, who has purchased the plan for the wrong mail, can change the order specifications. To do that, one should log in the Hoverwatch account. Then it is required to denote order ID. You can also follow the brief instructions on their website.
Hoverwatch trial version and Family package enable users to track 5 different mobile phones. But if you purchase a Personal subscription plan, you will be able to monitor only one device.
If your I hoverwatch trial plan was customized to monitor 5 devices, after the end of trial period, the Hoverwatch will choose the target device automatically.
How to change the device monitored? Login your I hoverwatch account if the trial version is expired. Open your panel and find the device that is being monitored by the software now. Choose the Settings of the device.
Tap on “Delete the device” if you want to remove all the tracked activity and data. The device monitored will be deleted by the system. If you want to save the old information, select the “Stop Device Monitoring” option. Then the old logs will be saved for you to review.
If you want to monitor more than one device, the mSpy app has a Family Kit. You can monitor 3 devices simultaneously with 10% off.
Sometimes the Hoverwatch users complain they can’t play their call recordings. In such case, users are offered several solutions.
The browser you are using may have problems with the updates. If you can’t play call audios, log in your account from another browser. Go to the dashboard and check whether the problem is solved.
If the mentioned above didn’t help to solve the problem, you could change the audio source. Go to your panel and select the device that is being monitored. Open the Settings of the device and choose the preferred audio source there. This solution should help you solve your problem with call recordings.
But if you still can’t play the recordings, you can turn to support representatives to help you. They will resolve the problem regarding your phone model and other specifications.
After you installed the software, the logs will be displayed in your panel. What if they aren’t displayed there? There are the reasons why you can’t see logs in the dashboard:
To open the app on the target device, one should enter the PIN-code. It is usually a 4-digits password you have to create when installing the app on the phone. What to do if you forget your Hoverwatch pin?
The PIN-code can be found in your Hoverwatch account. You need to log in and go to the “Settings.”
Hoverwatch allows the user to hide the app from the owner of the target device. To open the app, enter ***PIN### (PIN is your actual PIN-code). The mSpy app has limited access to the app even more. After the installation of the mSpy app, the icon can be either deleted or kept on the device. But the app cannot be reached by tapping the icon. If the user notices the icon and taps on it, the only thing that appears is the lite version of the mSpy, without settings and other features.
The mSpy app itself works in the background mode. The background mode doesn’t let the users know the tracker is working on their devices.
Almost every parental control app requires root to start working. Hoverwatch won’t track the activity of a user if the device is not rooted. In other words, Hoverwatch needs root access to start working.
What is rooting? Rooting is the process of getting the access to modify Android system. Root access turns the user into a SuperUser. With a root, the user can make the system-level modifications, install incompatible before apps and enhance the whole operational system.
Why parental control apps require a root? Such apps cannot easily gather the data and the activity of the user. Android devices are protected from spying software. Root allows the parental control apps delve into system and track user’s activity.
Rooting is the simple process. Though, sometimes users face problems with root permission. Hoverwatch representatives recommend using Kingroot to solve any rooting issue. They have step-by-step instruction on their website.
Once installing parental control app on the device, users want to hide the app from the actual owner of the device. Most free programs for android similar to Hoverwatch enable this option for their users. Hoverwatch also leaves icons hidden, but users can show them if they like.
To hide Hoverwatch icon, open the app on the device. Go to Setting of the tap. To remove the icon from the menu, tap on “Hide Hoverwatch icon.”
If you want the icon to be visible, tap on “Show Hoverwatch icon.” The mSpy app doesn’t step aside and also allows its users to hide the icon of the app. Installing the mSpy, you can enjoy the full set of features such as Geofencing, GPS location tracker, social networks checker and many more. You can choose between 3 packages regarding your spying preferences.
Keylogger is another thing that makes mSpy the right choice. Keylogging option is useful for parents who want to monitor everything their kid types. The keylogger will track all the words and phrases to send the “message” directly to your dashboard.
Bitdefender antivirus blocks all the threats that attack your computer. The antivirus considers parental control software a threat to the Windows system. Bitdefender blocks the parental control app to protect your computer.
To start using Hoverwatch latest version, you have to prevent the antivirus from blocking the parental control software. How to do that?
Open the Bitdefender antivirus and tap on “View Modules.” In the window that appears, select “Antivirus.” In the “Shield” tab find “On-access scanning” and “Active Threat Control” and turn them off.
Then install the Hoverwatch Windows version. In the “Exclusions” tab of Bitdefender list the Hoverwatch files, which will be excluded from scanning. If you have 32-bit Windows, type C:WindowsSystem32hwfld. For 64-bit version, make such file C:WindowsSysWOW64hwfld excluded.
Click on “View Modules” ones more. In the “Firewall” window, choose “Rules” and click on “Add Rule.” Choose the appropriate for your Windows version program path and allow the permission.
After the work is done, delete Hoverwatch installation file from your PC. For the changes to be applied, reboot the computer.
Some users claim the Hoverwatch software sometimes stops functioning on the Android 6.0 devices. Hoverwatch representatives have elaborated the solution for such cases. If you have the same issue, follow the guide to relaunching the app.
Don’t forget, for the app to work perfectly; your device has to be rooted the right way. How to check if your device is rooted?
If your device is rooted, you will see the SuperUser app installed. What is SuperSU app? It is an application, which helps the user control their root access. If you are a Hoverwatch user, with the help of SuperSU app you can solve problems with root permission reset.
Follow this step-by-step guide:
Open the SuperSU app and go to “Tabs.”
Your problems now have to be solved. But if you’re looking for the app, which doesn’t need any adjustment, you should try mSpy. To start monitoring someone’s devices with mSpy, you have to:
That’s all that is required to do to start using the mSpy app.
Hoverwatch app may have problems with the restoration of root access. After the update, the software may automatically deactivate the root access. But to continue the work of the app, you need to reactivate the root access.
To do that follow the instructions:
If you used SuperSU to root the phone, then remove the check from “Ask again” and select “Grant.”
Then it’s recommended to restart the computer to start using the software. All the logs will appear in 10 minutes.
To install the recent update, you have to launch the Hoverwatch application on the target device. The app will check for the update automatically. If there is a recent update you didn’t install yet, the “Update” button will appear.
You can also update the software through your panel. Go to the “Settings” of the device and turn on “Automatic App Update.”
When the update is successfully installed, check whether the root access wasn’t lost. The stealth mode may also be disabled after the update. If you want the app to continue working in background mode, you have to turn it on. To do that, open the Hoverwatch application on the device. Tap on “Hide Hoverwatch icon” and work in stealth mode will be continued.
Don’t forget to allow all the permissions once again. Once the installation is complete, open the app and log in to the account.
That’s all required to do if your device is not rooted. But if you have root access, check and restore it following the instructions placed above. (CHECKED)
Geolocating is a feature that allows monitoring someone’s location. Geolocating is very helpful for parents. With the help of GPS tracker, you can always know where your kid is and where is he/she heading to.
To start using geolocation, you have to turn on the GPS. Go to the “Settings” of the phone and find the “Personal” partition. Tap on the “Location” and turn it on in the tab that appears. There you can also set the “Mode” for the GPS. Choose between three modes: “High Accuracy,” “Battery saving” and “GPS only.”
Keep in mind that “Battery saving” mode turns off the geolocation. You won’t be able to track someone’s location with that mode turned on.
You should also enable the location requesting in your user panel. You can do that in the “Settings” of the target device.
Log in your account and go to “Settings” of the target device. Then get the target device. Open “Phone” application if the device allows performing calls. Here type your PIN-code such way: ***PIN###. Then select “call.” After that, the Hoverwatch program will open.
There is another way to open the app for the devices, which don’t support phone calls.
After that, the program has to be started.
Some Hoverwatch users claim the logs are not updated on the target Sony and Asus devices. Hoverwatch representatives explain the problem may be caused by power saving modes.
Many Android devices automatically set power saving mode when the battery charge is not sufficient. This mode limits the activity of the device. It also disconnects the device from the Internet. So, parental control app won’t be able to record and update logs.
How to fix such problem?
Solution for Asus models
To ensure the app won’t be switched off again, select “Power Saver” in the “Power Management” section. Power saving and Super saving modes may limit the work of the app. Set another mode to enable constant connection to the Internet.
Solution for Sony devices

Average mobile phone numbers consist of more than 9 digits. There are also short phone numbers. These are used by banks, mobile services, charity donations and various organizations.
Hoverwatch doesn’t display messages from short numbers. The reason for that is they may contain passwords, details of transactions and other legal information. Parental control software can’t disobey the law. That’s why these messages are hidden.
