Spyzie App Features
Spyzie has most of the basic features that a basic spy app should have. Hence, whatever you see are available in other spy apps are more or less available here. Though it’s generally the case, Spyzie has a couple of extra features you may find useful. Features that most other spy apps not have.
Tracks Texts and Calls
You can track your target device’s texts and calls. This is a pretty common feature in all spy apps in the market.
Check all incoming and outgoing calls on your target devices. With this feature available, you can also view the complete information about the caller. You can check on the date, time stamp and the duration of any calls. On top of that, you can check on the top5 most contacted person and its details.
Want to check on your target’s texting habit? Spyzie has that feature too. Check on your target’s sent and received SMSes and iMessages. You can even download the media attachments sent and received from the SMS too.
Besides all that, you can analyse the message history. Analysing the message history basically means you are able to tell who are the most important persons from the number of messages and chat frequently. Instantly. The numbers don’t lie.
Social Media Tracking
Monitor your target device’s social media activity by tracking what they do in their social media apps. You don’t have to root or jailbreak the devices in order to monitor all activities made. With this feature, you can choose to keep it visible or invisible.
Spying on the target device can reveal a lot of information about what your target has been doing online. Your target may be interacting with strangers online or be involved in unsavory activities.
With this feature, you can be aware of the contents in your target’s social media newsfeed. Social media newsfeeds are flooded with all kinds of news. You get to understand your target’s interests better from the channels, pages, groups, and people your target follows. Having this feature allows you to know what your targets are exposed to online.
It can be really risky at times especially when your children are of very young age. Having this feature, however, you can take care of such issue and prevent your loved ones from interacting with unsavory people online.
GPS Location Tracking
This feature allows you to always keep track of your target’s location. View your target’s route history. Track your target’s current whereabouts (especially for Android users) and view the date and time of each visited location. Furthermore, this feature is Google Map view supported.
It doesn’t just track your target’s whereabouts, but it also helps you track the device if it’s lost (same feature offered by Hoverwatch). There are a couple of ways you can track the device and it’s cost-free too.
Just a side note, your target will not be aware that you are tracking them. You won’t just be tracking your target’s location but also the keystrokes made by your target. No worries its interface is user-friendly.
Keylogger simply means a computer program that records the keystrokes made by a computer or device user. This helps you learn what the target user has been typing, or where have they been lingering online.
Spyzie allows you to record all keystrokes users type using their devices. Do note that this feature is only available on all Android devices and Windows and Mac PC.
On Spyzie you are able to track your target’s browser activities. You can track what current websites they visit, as much as you can check their web histories. You can even track their bookmark history too.
As you can check your target’s browser activities and history, you will not be able to block the websites they frequented. This is probably the downside of this spy app. If you feel unsafe for your children to visit certain websites, or to prevent your employees from spending too much time at some sites, you will not be able to block the websites.
It does, however, helps you determine what the websites your target frequented and are interested in. At least you will not be kept in the dark about their web activities. If it’s good news to you, you still can check for deleted web browser history.
Spyzie allows you to export all monitored data of your target device as you need. The data export feature basically means that you have all the data summarized and exported to you. You don’t need to manually check and track through all the data you are looking for.
The data export feature basically means you get to send all the controlled data, such as GPS locations, chat history, and whatnot to your hands. This is so that you can check and back them up safely to read later when you have time.
This is perhaps the best feature Spyzie has to offer. With this feature, you are able to view all phone activities at a glance. It makes it easier for you to check all online activities and figure out your target’s behavioral habits online.
You can now gauge how the target device is being used. For this purpose, by applying the timeline feature introduced by Spyzie it brings all the device’s activities to one place. You can check and make sure the device is not involved in any unsavory events.
Well, you can now know what your target has been doing on their devices for the entire day and schedule their screen times reasonably.

Spy App – Is It Legal?
If you are concerned as to if it is ethical to use spy apps or not, check your country’s laws about spying, privacy and stalking. Such laws differ from countries to countries, regions to regions. Don’t assume if it is legal in one region, it will be in other regions.

It’s a smartphone and tablet monitoring software that’s made only to be used as a parental control over their children, and employers to monitor their employees’ devices. If any violation of privacy laws were found out, you are subjected to severe monetary and criminal penalties imposed on the violator.
You do have to keep in mind, however, that it is illegal to install monitoring app on a phone you do not own. If you have no permission to monitor or do not own the device, you have no legal rights to purchase this product. Ask and talk to your target first before you install the app.

If you still have doubts over spy apps, consult a legal advisor in regards to how you want or planned on using such software.
