Using an app
In this internet age, there is an app for almost everything. Nevertheless to say there are also apps that allow you to spy on other smartphones. The process is pretty simple. All you have to do is install a Spy application on the target device and another one on your own.
From the point you do that, you will be able to keep track of the activities of the target smartphone. Don’t worry about your children finding out about it. The applications are well made to prevent uninstallation, as well as they have the ability to hide. If you need help in choosing the best application, here is a good list of the top 10 spy apps.
These applications will give you details such as the location of your children, the usage time of certain applications, and much more based on the app that you decided to use. So basically you will have access to pretty much everything they do on their smartphones.
It will be more than enough for you to spy on them as a parent for the better good. But keep in mind that, if they were able to figure out that they are being tracked, you are in big trouble, probably. So, better not use it on someone who is a tech-savvy.
Using Find my Device
For Android smartphones, there is a service called Google Find My Device that allows you to recover a smartphone when it is lost. But we can use it for a different purpose. You can set up Google Find My Device following the methods given in this article.
As soon as you do that, you will be able to track the smartphone you added to the Google account whenever you need it. But this service won’t allow you to get access to other sections or details of the smartphone. It will just tell you the current location which will be more than enough in many situations.
Even though using this feature is extremely easy and can be dependent on many situations, if the device is in the hands of your children they will be notified with an alarm. If they are familiar with such services, they can easily spot that they are being tracked. So it is best to use this as an option to track someone only when it is extremely important.
Using third-party services
Just like tracking applications, there third-party services that allow you to track any mobile devices. But you should make sure that the services are trusted in order to ensure the safety of the target device. If you didn’t choose the service wisely, there are chances for data leaks from your child’s smartphone. So, always make sure that you go for a trusted service with positive reviews and has been around for a while.
Spy on WhatsApp
If you specifically want to spy on WhatsApp, there are several applications available. Even though spying on someone’s WhatsApp account sounds a bit creepy, there are situations that you might want to look after some of the chats. If there is a situation like that, you can spy on any WhatsApp account using applications listed in the above article.
The same thing applies here as well, be sure to use a trusted application from the official app stores. Never go for an APK file or an App from a non-trusted source. It may lead to data leaks and other kinds of dangers. Be sure to do your own research before choosing any application out there.
