Before You Get Started With mSpy

If any questions left

What makes mSpy the best phone tracking software?

mSpy is an all-in-one phone tracker that works with Android phones as well as iPhones. It tracks everything from the location of the device to text messages and other media shared across all the apps that the person is using.

In addition to that, this mobile phone tracking app comes with a Control Panel, which allows you to monitor the device of interest from any web browser. The best part of using mSpy software is that it runs totally undetected, and the other person will never know there is a spying app on their device.

How does mSpy phone tracking app work?

mSpy has a very simple mode of action. All you need to do is to install this mobile phone tracker on the target device, and you are ready to go.

You can select from a variety of features that you would like to track. Then, you need to log in to your personal dashboard called Control Panel to keep an eye on every change that has taken place on the device.

Can you use mSpy in the United Kingdom?

Yes, you can use the mSpy phone tracker in the UK. The procedure of purchasing and installing the app in the UK is the same as in any other country.

Create a free mSpy account, install the app on the target device, and start tracking right away via the Control Panel.

How can one be sure that mSpy actually works and is not a scam?

mSpy is a tried and tested phone tracking app. You can make sure that it is not a scam in several ways. First, look for reviews from other customers, and you’re likely to find that our clients tend to share good feedback and testimonials only. Secondly, you should know that we’ve been operating since 2010 and have received numerous positive reviews from experts in the field of tracking software.

Finally, you can always begin with an unpaid trial period to see for yourself why so many people cannot imagine their lives without mSpy. In addition to that, if you ever face any problems using this app, you can always get professional support from the care team at mSpy.

Is it necessary to install mSpy on your own phone if you need to track another phone?

No, you only need to install the mSpy phone tracker app on the target device. You will get access to the data gathered from the other person’s device via the online dashboard. In short, all you need is a stable internet connection and web browser to use mSpy.

How much time do I need to start using mSpy for the first time?

mSpy GPS phone tracker is designed around convenience and ease of use. You will need around 10 minutes to get started with the app. Just sign up, make the payment, and install the mSpy mobile phone tracking app in compliance with the instructions sent to you by email.

Once everything is done, you can use your mSpy credentials to log in to the Control Panel and start tracking.

Will the other person know that I track their phone?

No, they will have no idea that they have a mobile phone tracking app installed on their device. mSpy makes that possible by running under the radar on the target smartphone since the app doesn’t slow it down or drain the battery.

How frequently does the information update?

The mSpy phone tracker app updates the information from the target device every 5-30 minutes if you chose to monitor an Android. And if you track an iPhone, the data on your Control Panel will be updated every 24 hours.

You can also set it to alert you if a certain action is done. For instance, if the other user typed some trigger words or entered or left a specific area. Some things like the location of the target can also be set to be updated in real-time if you want.

Am I required to physically access the device I am going to install mSpy on?

You will have to physically access the target device once before you can start phone tracking with mSpy. The reason is that phone trackers cannot be installed on mobile devices remotely. However, once the app is up and running, you’ll never have to touch the target smartphone ever again.

Are there any free phone tracking services that I can use?

Free phone tracking services do exist, but they are not advised. First of all, they do not offer many features. Secondly, they are not reliable, and there is a huge risk of a data leak. If you want the best phone tracker app, there is no better option than mSpy.
