These are all experiences during some years I work on spying field with mobile phone (I will write in other articles about spying on PC/laptop. Here just for spying/tracking an Android device).
This article is sponsored by @TheTruthSpy (www.thetruthspy.com) - a leading of spying field with smart phone.
1. Legal issue:
You should consider that if you track a smart phone of someone, it is allowed to do that in your country/region?
For example, you are the parent and it is legal to track your children with their smart phone? Maybe it is legal in some countries.
Or you are the boss and and you want to track your employees? It is illegal ?
So you should refer to legal rules in your country/regions.
2. Which spy app you should choose?
There are around 10 acceptable apps in the market. You should choose the best one. It depends on what feature supported, the prices, easy to use,...
In this article we are about TheTruthSpy app.
3. Physical access to install
It is a required to have a physical access to the target device.
a) A physical access of 5 minutes is required for the installation.
You must keep in your hand the target device, and open the browser such as Chrome to download an APK file.
Of course you must allow the browser to have download permission the file. For example:
- you must enable unknown sources
- turn on Disable Package Verifier
- turn off any antivirus programs.
- turn off Google Protect. Some special cases, after downloading the file you should turn off Wifi to make sure there are no errors while installing the app.
b) You should configure the essential settings on the target device.
Because the target app works silently in background, you need to configure some essential settings (options) in your target device to make it work for a long time. If not, the app maybe works some days and suddenly stop working. For example, with option Save battery mode of Android, when you choose Yes (turned on), it will stop the app to save the battery. Or option 'Start Up', you should add the target app in the list of application that will be run when the device reboot.
You check the version of Android on the target device, and base on brand (manufacturer) of the device, you should read specific articles as following:
So the important thing is maybe you don't have more time to install on the target device, you must do on YOUR DEVICE first to be familiar to. Do not worry, normally you will have 3 devices for each account with the user control panel (https://my.thetruthspy.com) and then you have experience you will do faster with the target device (the device of your son).
