What Is mSpy and How Does It Work?
mSpy is a parental control app designed to help parents safeguard their kids by monitoring their online activity. It includes a set of advanced monitoring features, such as tracking a target user’s GPS location, viewing their calls, watching multimedia files on their device, and monitoring their social media accounts.
After you install mSpy on your kid’s phone, it starts collecting data about their activity. All this information can be found in your mSpy Control Panel, which you can access right from your smartphone. The app works well both on iOS and Android. However, to use some of its functions, you need to jailbreak or root a target device.
