Editors' Review

Good parental control and monitoring software usually doesn't come for free. Touted as one of the only totally free spy programs, Bosspy allows users to track movement of a mobile device and all the data associated with it, including SMS and email messages. While this app claims to be incredibly useful, it delivers an incredibly difficult-to-use program.

The program, itself, downloads instantly onto the device. It is around 1MB in size and seems to use very few resources once installed. The problems begin immediately after installation, though. Bosspy is intended to be completely invisible and undetectable to the user. The program is in fact invisible. Users will find it impossible to find on the device. The Web site for the developers is of no help, either. It requires registration to use the program and edit the settings, but the Web site is not fully functional. It will not allow users to log in once they are logged out or change any of the settings if they haven't completed the setup process on the phone. The Web site does not contain any useful frequently asked questions, and live support seems to be offline, too. We tried downloading the software on both Android 4.0 and Android 4.2 devices and the settings never showed up to set the program up. We followed all of the complicated instructions available on the developer's Web site multiple times and could not get it to work. At best this application could be deemed "under construction." It is definitely not ready to be distributed, as the setup process for this type of app needs to be straightforward.

For those searching for an application to track the use of a mobile device, Bosspy would be a good pick if one manages to get it up and running. During our testing the app didn't prove functional, and while this app does a good job at hiding within the device, it is hard to tell if it actually works.

"Installed will launch on phone can log into web sight"

June 05, 2013  |  By scoleman58

 |  Version: Bosspy 1.1

Pros

It is Free
Able to install it and launch the app
Able to access the website with ID and Pass created

Cons

Not seeing any data populate
* I am in a building with intermittent service and the web site tells you to wait 30 mins. (I have waited over an hour and sent test text. No GPS location either but like I said crappy service where I am sitting and installed it.)

Summary

The problem I had was flowing the on set of the instructions and it is horribly written. shows the picture with you using the default code as #123456* this is NOT what you type in! you only type in 123456 none of the special characters. when you look at the phone callback/recent calls you will see it as " #123456* " The other option to use google search never worked for me the dialing " 123456 " did.
Once again when I get my phone in outside and 4G pumping strong I will be able to tell if the website will supply the data!
