How to Monitor SMS Text Messages & Call Info
Phone Spy defines the latest in high-tech cell phone monitoring. Parents and employers can easily install software directly onto a compatible smartphone or tablet they own and have the proper consent to monitor.
Once the software is installed onto the device to be monitored, it logs activity such as SMS messages and call information along with periodic GPS locations when a GPS signal is available.
There's no need to worry about being near the device to view the activity after installation because activities are viewable using ANY web browser, even a Mac or phone web browser.
