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 users GPS location, viewing their calls, watching multimedia files on their device, and monitoring their social media accounts.

After you install mSpy on your kids phone, it starts collecting data about their activity. All of 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be notified if a target user uninstalls the app?

If a monitored person detects mSpy and deletes it from their phone, you will be notified immediately. You will also get an alert if a target device is damaged, and mSpy cant work.

Can I change a target device without changing my subscription?

You can link various devices to your mSpy account without changing a subscription. However, you can track only one of them at a time. To start monitoring another device, you need to remove mSpy from a previous target phone and re-install it to a new one.

Is mSpy icon displayed on a monitored device?

When you install mSpy on a target device, you have an option to remove the icon from it. We recommend this if you dont want a target user to detect mSpy on their phone.

  • Hi
    I have installed the app on targeted device but the phone keeps giving massages that the app is installed and if you want to Uninstall it, it can’t be undetected for some reason, I need help please

    • Hi, Leo! Did you check the option to hide the app’s icon when installing it? If you’re having any technical issues, please message our support in the chat or email us at

    • Hi, Ana! If the app is deleted from the target phone or the connection was lost for some reason, you’ll get a notification about it. If they deleted the app, you would need to manually re-install it.

  • Hi, can i read all of my kid’s whatsapp messages through the app? What happens if they delete the messages immediately? And can I also read messages from the Signal app? Thx!

    • Hi, Nadia! If the kid deletes the message immediately before mSpy had the chance to sync up the data, unfortunately, you won’t be able to see it in your dashboard. However, Screenrecorder might still be able to capture the screen before the message is deleted, so you might find the screenshots of missing messages in the Screenrecorder tab.
      As to the second question. mSpy doesn’t support Signal monitoring yet, but we’re constantly adding new messengers to the list of features, so be on the look-out for that 🙂

  • My daughter lost her phone at the lake and I bought her a new one. I deleted all the mspy emails accidentally, how do I reinstall it on her new phone? I still nave almost 3 months left of service!

    • Hi, Cass! Can you still log in to your account? You can remove the old device and connect a new one through your Control Panel. You won’t be charged any additional fees. Feel free to reach out to our support team if you need any help.
