How to keep track of your child’s activities on phone and computer?
The perilous stories of social media accidents haunt every parent, making it essential to keep an eye on your child’s cellphone usage. On internet, our children are not safe unless we take active measures to ensure their safety.
The best way to do that is by monitoring their cell phone activity via a powerful iPhone spy app so that you know who they’re mingling with, what they’re discussing most and where they are.

Here are reviews of the best iPhone spy apps you can find to keep your kids safe online;
Filter and monitor your child’s email, Internet history, phone contacts, and calendars, track their GPS location in real time and block the inappropriate content to ensure you are notified when they diverge from safety.
Lock or wipe their phone if you’re not happy about their whereabouts.
For $12.99/, they offer the widest range of features possible, an excellent customer support and a simple, fluid interface, making it one of the best apps to monitor your child’s phone activities.
If you have basic needs to be fulfilled, this parental monitoring app should be of your choice.
It’s compatible with iOS, Android, and Computers (Windows plus Mac)
Other latest news from mSpy is that they have added 3 new features for their premium customers.
Our Review: -
One of the leading phone and PC monitoring apps in the current market. All the basic and advanced monitoring functions of logging calls and texts, Whatsapp, Viber, Skype and Facebook conversations as well as browsing history are available.
Block contacts and apps you don’t approve of. If you worry about their safety, simply track them via GPS along with Geofencing feature – virtual boundary alerts you if the target device enters into the area.
The distinguishing Keylogger feature makes it an ideal choice for parents concerned about who their children are befriending and what they’re sharing with them.
Available for approx. $29.99/month and mSpy was previously available for jailbroken iOS devices. They also offer iPhone spy app without jailbreak that supports iOS up to 9.x.x.
However, the single month subscription option and excellent 24/7 customer support can certainly make up for the shortfalls.
