Editors' review

Even though smartphones and tablets can be both fun and useful for children, these devices also open children up to a dangerous world of unlimited information exchange. Whether it be inappropriate text exchanges, adult Web site content, or excessive usage that may rack up fees, Parental Control will help safeguard your kids.

Parental Control is quick to set up on a mobile device. For the most part it runs in the background and is not visible through normal use. The program itself is password-protected so the child may not simply disable it or delete it. The main portion of the program that parents will be interested in is the online user interface: this is the Web-based program you can use to view the logged information. Through the user interface you are able to see Web history, GPS location, text record, call record, and photos that are stored on the device. You may also restrict usage during certain times, such as during school hours, or shut certain features of the device off. The user interface is fairly straightforward and most users will require no further instruction.

While most parents purchase mobile devices for their children to help stay in touch with them, they have no idea how their children are using these devices. A quick and stable application, Parental Control could be a useful tool for protective parents.

    "Good but very expensive and uses tons of data"

    August 20, 2014   |   By nyrichny

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.7.1.2

    Pros

    Good features and clean interface.

    Cons

    Very expensive and uses alot of the phones mobile data and battery life.

    Summary

    Overall a good application however there are much less expensive alternatives out there that give you the same features like Cell Phone Sleuth. I would do my research and look for less expensive options.

    "Great solution for me. Thanx"

    July 02, 2014   |   By Nataly78

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.4.5.7

    Pros

    For me it was very important to know where my daughter is, application even shows the history of movement. Anytime I had access to all messages, contacts, phone calls, and even Skype and Viber, these data I used only when strongly agitated. I could not even lock her phone or access to certain sites, but I decided not to do this. Do not forget to set update interval!

    Cons

    At first I had problem with installation process, but support helped me!

    Summary

    I've been using this app for a month to protect my daughter. But now I had to spy my husband. Though in life everything not good, but at least the app works fine)

    "Data hog! Beware."

    June 09, 2014   |   By Egsosgfot

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.4.5.7

    Pros

    You can see where the phone is.

    Cons

    We purchased for 30 phones. Software will go into an update, lock up and continue to down load data. 1 of our phones used 55 gigs of data this month. We have been battling this for three months.
    Mspy unconcerned about of issue.
    The data cost us $700 dollars. We have pulled the plug.
    Not sure what to use but this is not it!

    "the 10 days Guaranteed refund is not true"

    May 04, 2014   |   By Lilliechang

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.4.5.7

    Pros

    Jailbreak required and refund is not guaranteed

    Cons

    Jailbreak required and refund is not guaranteed

    Summary

    When request for a refund, mSpy responded that I was not eligible to get a refund in accordance with the Refund Policy which was not stated when I purchased the software. My request for refund came less than 15 mins after my purchase. The site clearly stated that 10 days refund is GUARANTEED. This is dishonest and I would not recommend it to any buyer.

    "Don't buy this. There is no refund policy."

    April 12, 2014   |   By bcvnkramer

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.4.5.7

    Pros

    There are no pros.

    Cons

    The installation is ridiculously complicated.
    The technical support person is hard to understand.
    They claim to have a 10 day refund policy but ultimately they will not give you one.

    Summary

    I have been getting the run around for the last 5 days as I've been trying to get a refund. I started working on the refund within 30 minutes of the purchase. That's how long it took me to realize that the installation process is ridiculous. I doubt I'll get my money back. This is a scam. I should have read more reviews before I purchased this. I have to give them credit. Their website makes them look legitimate.

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.3.1.10

    Pros

    Superb! The best software to be in the know!

    Cons

    If you feel something unsaid, just read it from your control panel!

    Summary

    After tracking browsing history I blocked some frequently used sites of my employees. Recommend it!

    "Sounds great on the website, not so good on their phone"

    January 15, 2014   |   By ryujingt3

    Version: mSpy - Cell Phone Tracker 4.3.1.10

    Pros

    Website looks nice
    Feature list sounds impressive

    Cons

    Complicated to install
    No IM capture even though it was advertised
    Software is easy to find on a rooted Android
    SuperSU notifications alert phone user to Mspy
    Mspy is found and removed using Lookout Antivirus
    No refund policy even though advertised on website

    Summary

    Mspy sounds nice on paper but when you actually use it it definitely leaves a lot to be desired. When I tested it it missed out on uploading important SMS data, I never got any of their IM capturing features to work either. I was very disappointed and they never refunded me either.

    So I started to look at competitors. Currently I am looking at StealthGenie and FlexiSPY. It seems FlexiSPY is more expensive but they seem to have better features, very friendly support staff and they do seem to actually pay attention and honor their 10 day refund policy.

    Ironically I just took a look at FlexiSPY's blog, they have a section called 'Scam Report' and it described exactly how Mspy was for me so I guess I am not the only one.

    Thanks to this I am now enjoying FlexiSPY - for free! :)
