Spy Phone Software: How to Compare Services and Make the Right Choice For You

There are a number of types of spy phone software available depending on the brand of phone you are spying on, the information you want and the amount of money you have to spend.

Most of the programs require that you install a small application directly onto the phone you own and want to monitor. The software starts at every boot of the phone you are spying on, but remains hidden and does not show up in the running process list.

After the software is set up on the monitored phone, it will record an array of phone activities and then silently upload the data to your private online account using the Internet. When you want to view results, you simply login to the online control panel from any computer or smartphone and enter your username and password to continue.

There are three main differences in the spy software available. They are:

  1. How much and how often the customer pays: I found this to range from a one-time $60 payment with unlimited monitored phones to services that charge $50 three times a year and limits the phones to three. Other programs will charge hundreds of dollars a year for essentially the same services. All providers seem to have a sliding scale and charge more or less depending on the features provided.
  2. The Ease of Installation: Installation procedures vary from simple downloads to the phone to elaborate codes and text messaging to the monitored phone. One software took two hours to install. Check the installation procedure before you decide which software you want.
  3. The Guarantee: Guarantees range from 60 days, cash back, no questions asked,to 10 days, and even to all sales final with refund only if their techs cannot get the software to work.

For me, only one of these systems made any sense. Why pay two or three times as much with no guarantee that you will like it or that it will be easy to work with? Only one company has a one-time low-cost, with a 60 day cash back, no questions asked guarantee and no limit on the number of phones being spied on. How can they do this? Simple, they are not greedy, and they are marketing from a country where the cost of living is low. The profit margin does not have to be that high for them to do very well. Once the software development is paid for, there are very few costs – only the cost of marketing, and these people certainly know how to do that.
