The software is simple to install. It runs invisibly on the target device and gives you an array of remote functions; for example, you can lock the device and send text commands.

For effective mobile phone monitoring, it's important to also have high-quality reporting. This software can log virtually all communication, and it shows you an extensive list of all apps downloaded on the device. You can track browser history, as well as the device’s current location and GPS history. If your child has any notes or calendar events stored on the device, you can see them, in addition to any photos or videos taken with the smartphone. While this mobile phone spyware can track chat apps such as Skype and Tinder, the phone needs to be rooted to do so.
The best cell phone monitoring software has extensive alert and restriction settings. TheOneSpy does well in this area, but it’s missing a few features. It can send you a tampering alert, which notifies you if someone tries to change or uninstall the software. You can also take advantage of the geofencing technology to receive alerts when your child enters or leaves a designated boundary such as the school. In addition, the software lets you block contacts and apps. However, it doesn’t let you limit your child's phone use time or alert you when they use inappropriate words.
