WebWatcher for iPhone/iPad
(Compatible with iOS 12/iPhone X)
Feb 19, 2019 09:27 am / Posted by WellResearchedReviews
WebWatcher has been updated to be completely compatible with iOS 12, as well as all prior versions. Rated the #1 iPhone monitoring app, WebWatcher allows parents to monitor a device discretely from a secure online account. In addition to iPhone/iPad, it is compatible with all other key operating systems (Android, PC, Mac & Chromebook). The company also offers 24/7 customer service via phone, e-mail and live chat, to ensure the best experience for their customers. WebWatcher‘s stand-out feature is its Alert Log tool. This feature scans all recorded data and uses intelligent filters to identify and highlight items deemed to be risky behavior. Parents receive real-time alerts of all identified risky behavior, which means they can focus on only important items while respecting privacy boundaries. Of course, all recorded data is available for review at any time if needed.
TeenSafe is a smartphone tracking app offered only on iPhone. The parental monitoring app claims that it allows customers to view text messages, GPS location, browser history and more. Since iOS 12, Two-Factor Authentication has become standard which means the parent is required to get a one-time-use code from the child’s device each time they want to request data. TeenSafe does not work with Two-Factor Authentication and we have found accounts with Two-Factor Authentication cannot request data through their interfaces therefore no data can be requested.
XNSPY is a mobile spy app offered on iPhone, that is for parental and employee monitoring. The spy app claims that it allows customers to monitor phone calls and messages, access instant messenger chat and multimedia, track GPS location, read emails, monitor online activities, record phone calls and surroundings, and remotely control the target device. Due to a recent Apple upgrade to iOS12, we discovered that this update breaks the XNSPY app. After reading customer reviews, many of the negative reviews mention how they were never able to retrieve any data from their target devices and more importantly how unhelpful customer service was. We had the same experience.
Spyzie is a parental monitoring app offered on iPhone, that allows parents to keep track of their children’s devices. The app claims to monitor messages, call logs, GPS, web history, photos, contacts and app usage. During the installation process, after a customer supplied their iCloud login credentials, a pop-up appears stating, “Your iCloud ID is protected with two-factor authentication, please turn off it and verify again.” Apple has made it impossible to disable Two-Factor Authentication with iOS 12, as Apple deems that this an important security feature for accounts, thus making Spyzie not work at all for iPhone users. Many negative reviews mention how customers were never able to retrieve any data from their target devices and more importantly were never able to reach customer support for assistance.
mSpy is a parental control monitoring software offered on iPhone, that allows parents to keep track of their children’s devices. The software claims that it can manage calls, track text messages, monitor apps, track location, control apps and monitor internet activities. mSpy offers Jailbreak and No Jailbreak options for iPhone monitoring. With all the security measures Apple takes to protect their products, it is no longer possible to jailbreak an iPhone. mSpy asks for the target device’s iCloud login and sends a verification code to the iPhone. mSpy does not work with Two-Factor Authentication and we have found accounts with Two-Factor Authentication cannot request data through their interfaces therefore no data can be requested. In order to get Customer Support, you must pay additional fees: Get mAssistance is $53.99 and the Phone Support Service is $12.99.
