Last Updated on June 16, 2020 by Jason Ben

Spy on Text Messages of others is not a good option for us. However, you must want to keep your child from danger and want to know if your spouse is treating on you, then, Spying on Text Messages seems reasonable.

Children are always venerable, especially children of nowadays. With the development of the internet, they are more likely to get in touch with bad things such as violence, eroticism or addition to online games. As parents, we always want to protect them from any kind of bad thing, and it is reasonable that parents want to know what’s happening in their life. However, when entering adolescence, they may have their own secrets and refuse to share everything with parents. At the same time, Parents may have thousands of questions in their mind.

"Why is she so upset recently? Does everything at school go well?" "Why does she begin to make up lately?" "Does she have a boyfriend?" "Is her boyfriend a good guy or not?" "Why does my little boy always lock himself in his room?" "What is he doing in there?" "My son got hurt on his face yesterday, did he fight with others or just as he said simply because he fell down when going back home from school?"

If you and your children trust each and can communicate without any difficulties. You are lucky. It’s a very good choice to talk equally with them and help them go through the adolescence period by providing some useful advice or experiences. But some parents may have a very strained relationship with their children, they don’t know how to communicate with each other friendly. Meanwhile, they are really worried about their children and want to secretly know what’s going on in their life. They choose to spy text messages on children’s iPhones. Maybe it’s their last choice but it’s really a very good way to know what are they getting in touch with, who are they making friends with, what’s happening in their daily life etc..

mSpy is also a very famous Spy app for iPhone and Android Phones on the internet. It is very similar to Spyzie while mSpy still has its own unique features. Just like other phone Spy app, mSpy focuses a lot on messaging, you can not only spy on SMS, MMS messages but also on iMessage, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, Messenger, Skype, Hangouts, KIK, Tango, Snapchat, Telegram, Tinder, Kakao Talk, Hike, IMO and Zolo. There are some unique features with mSpy that might interest you.

  • Blocking Calls: you can set a list of unwanted numbers which will be blocked no matter calling in or out.
  • Audio Recording: you can trigger the recording feature to record ambient voice for 1 to 20 minutes.
  • Blocking Websites: if you don't want your kids or your employees to browse some websites, add them to the block-list.
