Software to Track Your Spouse’s Android Cell Phone
While you can monitor your partner’s or spouse’s whereabouts using a vehicle tracking solution, it may not work if he or she takes alternate transportation or you need more precisely tracking to see where he or she goes after leaving the vehicle.
Using a good cell phone tracker is essential if you want to secretly retrieve the call logs, pictures and videos that were taken with the phone and see the places that the person is visiting.
If your spouse really doesn’t mind you knowing where they are, you can always use a free solution such as “Family GPS Tracker by Life360,” “GPS Tracker” or “Google Latitude.”
On the other hand, if you want a solution that will ensure that they don’t know you are tracking them, you may need to install a more serious GPS tracker on your spouse’s phone to confirm your suspicions, or gather the evidence you need to build a case that is strong enough to stand in a court of law. One such phone tracker is Mobistealth.
When you visit Mobistealth’s website you will be shown a list of features and options suited to those who want:
- Parental control software
- To catch a cheating spouse
- Employee monitoring
- To protect a phone in case it is lost or stolen
You will then need to select what type of device you want to track. Mobistealth can track Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Symbian and Windows phones — it can also spy on the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
We like the fact that Mobistealth does make ridiculous claims about being able to track all sorts of phones but instead ensures that the user can only sign up for service if Mobistealth can work on the phone they had selected.
Our only annoyance with the signup process is the fact that you have to navigate through a gallery pictures to find the right phone, we would like to see a text search feature to quickly find the right phone or tablet.
In any case this shouldn’t be a big issue for most users since you can first filter the list by platform (iPhone, Android etc). Once you find the right phone you will be shown a list of packages (Lite, Pro and Pro X) that are compatible with that phone.
After MobiStealth is setup you can login to the Dashboard where you will see information regarding where the phone and its owner has been, who the owner has been been calling, what pictures has the phone been used to take, who has been emailed and texted from the phone along with what was said in each message.
Of a truth, it is quite amazing what cell phone trackers such as Mobistealth can do. Some of the features that we found to be most impressive include the following:
- Email, call and SMS history – Stores copies of emails, call logs and SMS that were sent and received from the phone.
- Recent location – MobiStealth can be set to automatically retrieve the GPS coordinates of places that were recently visited. To get live tracking you will need to signup for the PRO and PRO-X versions as the Lite version doesn’t offer real-time GPS tracking. You will also need to signup for one of the PRO versions if you want to track a phone that doesn’t have GPS.
- Secretly Record Phone Calls (PRO-X only) – With this feature you can have MobiStealth record incoming and outgoing calls to specific numbers and even perform reverse phone number look-ups to see who the call are made to or received from. This feature alone makes MobiStealth a much better buy that many other Android spouse spy software because it doesn’t require that you are there to listen in on calls as they are happening.
- Retrieve Pictures and Videos – A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words and in fact may be all you need to make your case against someone, especially if the person has the habit of taking lots of pictures and videos. This feature allows MobiStealth customers/clients to remotely retrieve pictures and videos that were taken with the targeted phone.
- Recordings of the Phone’s Surroundings – This spy feature can turn on the phone’s microphone in order to secretly record conversations that are within earshot.
- Bookmarks, chat Sessions and Calendar events – A detailed record of bookmarks, chat sessions and calendar events can be just as incriminating as photos and text messages. You can use this Android spy app to review of chat sessions, calendar events and even contacts that were created.
- Internet Browsing – If you are concerned that the phone in question is being used by your spouse to view inappropriate content, MobiStealth can help you get all the evidence you need to confirm your suspicions or confront your partner.
MobiStealth comes in a Lite, PRO and PRO-X versions with pricing starting as low as $49.99 for the entry level version and goes up to $199 for a full year’s tracking with all the bells and whistles. By and large MobiStealth works very well and in some cases over-delivers.
Consumers will also be happy to know that there is a hassle free refund policy that can be drawn if they aren’t happy with the service. However, refunds must be requested within 3 days after purchasing.
There are free Android spouse tracker apps on the Market that can track a spouse’s, child’s or employee’s cell phone. However, if you want to record their conversations without them knowing it, or review their calls and browsing history, among other things, you will need to spend some money to get a topnotch solution such as MobiStealth.
Which package you choose will depend on how much time you will need to gather the information you want and the type of evidence you need.
