8 Essential Features to Have in a Smartphone Monitoring Software

Spying on someone through physical means was a tough job if we look back into the 20th century. However, with the advent of web 2.0 and smartphones such as Android and Apple, it has become pretty straightforward to spy on someone through their smartphones.


As you know, smartphones are now heavily involved in people’s life. Whether it is working, socializing, or communicating, everything is nowadays performed through smartphones. Without getting into the debate of whether it is right or wrong, most employers want to monitor their employees’ activity during office timings. Just like that, the parents want to keep an eye on their kids. They want to have an idea about what their kids are doing on smartphones.

Over the last few years, we have seen tremendous technological improvements in smartphone monitoring software. There are plenty of companies that are offering numerous state-of-the-art features. However, most of those features are either marketing gimmicks or offer no significant value. 


In this article, we will list down the most essential features to have in a smartphone monitoring software. Do check out whether these features are available in the smartphone monitoring software that you are going to purchase or not. Remember, missing out on any of these features will not adequately serve the purpose.

1.    Complete Invisibility

Being a parent, you cannot let your children do whatever they wish to while using their smartphones. In this situation, smartphone monitoring software serves as a complete package to monitor your kids’ activities without their notice. One thing to remember here is that this monitoring should be applied only to kids under the age of 18 years. 


A smartphone monitoring software must provide complete stealth or hidden mode in case of kids monitoring. Failing to provide complete invisibility may lead to a disturbing relationship between kids and their parents, which is not acceptable by any means.


So, complete invisibility that hides the application icon or other related things is essential to have in a monitoring app. 


On the other hand, this stealth or hidden mode is not necessary if you’re using a spying application to keep an eye on your employees’ activity as this practice should be adopted with mutual consent.

If you’re looking for monitoring software that ensures complete invisibility, XNSPY should be your ultimate choice. XNSPY offers 100% invisibility with iats stealth mode. There won’t be any icon in the application list when you swipe over it.

2.    Precise Location Tracking


Spying on someone is incomplete if you are not getting the precise location of the targeted smartphone. Many smartphone monitoring software claims to provide the precise location of the targeted device. However, these claims are mostly absurd.

How can you track your kid or employee if you are not getting precise information about their current location? As a parent, it provides you mental satisfaction if you know where exactly your kids are. On the other hand, getting the precise location of your employees is necessary from a managerial perspective. An employer should have an idea about whether its employees are within the office premises or not.


All of these reasons make precise location tracking an essential element of any monitoring software. XNSPY is a top-notch app when it comes to providing location tracking.

3.    24/7 Background Running


Do you know that multiple applications and processes still run in the background when you are not using your smartphone? These applications and processes include location, notifications, antivirus protection, and many more. 


Smartphone monitoring must capture everything running in the background when the smartphone is not being used. Spying is incomplete without this primary feature.

XNSPY records and captures everything. However, there is a condition that the targeted device should be connected to stable internet. If the device is connected to the internet, it will record every pixel of the display, and every process in the background.

4.    24/7 Instant Alerts


Real-time or instant alerts help parents to get information about their kids’ real-time location and activities. Moreover, it is a beneficial feature for employers as well.


XNSPY facilitates its users with real-time alerts. You can set up alerts on specific contactsspecific wordsspecific locations, and even on a SIM card change. After setting these alerts, you will receive an instant alert when the targeted device dials specific contact, type-specific words, or reach out to a specified location.

5.    Analytics and Reporting

It is not a rational approach to go through every call, chat, email, etc., when you are spying on a device. This manual process can take plenty of time, and you may end up finding nothing special.


Good monitoring software offers analytics and reporting features to solve this problem. XNSPY is not behind any top-end monitoring application in providing analytics and reporting. 


It offers a feature called Exclusive Actuarial ReportsThis feature collects valuable information to present in the form of reports.


With exclusive actuarial reports, you will receive information about top 5 callers, top 5 call durations, top 10 frequently-visited websites, and call time activity punch cards. 

6.    Comprehensive Social Media & Instant Messaging (IM) Monitoring


Traditional text messaging and calling over cellular networks have become obsolete. Nowadays, people prefer IM and social media for audio and video connectivity. 


Applications like Skype, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom are now used in the corporate sector for communication purposes. On the other hand, kids prefer communicating with friends over social media and IM applications like WhatsAppFacebook MessengerInstagram, and Snapchat.

Comprehensive social media and IM monitoring is an important feature that a monitoring software must have. Otherwise, monitoring software is useless if it is limited to traditional text messaging and calling tracking.


There are plenty of monitoring applications that offer high-end social media and IM monitoring. Out of all the top-end applications, XNSPY leads with the most number of app solutions. You can name any of the top-end social media or IM applications, and XNSPY will be there to help you out.


Traditionally, social media and IM monitoring were dependent on backed-up chat. However, XNSPY has put things on another level with its IM screen recorder.

7.    Backup and Cloud Syncing


What is the benefit of getting monitoring software if you cannot store the collected information securely? After all, you got to save it if you want to use it later. Storing the information at your end or in the targeted smartphone is not a suitable solution. It can be hacked or misused easily.

On the other hand, using cloud storage to store all the collected data is what a monitoring software must have in its core features. XNSPY uses iCloud data to spy on iPhones.

8.    Remote Control Functionalities

Remote control functionalities are necessary to have a smooth user experience. These functionalities include Remote phone locking, remote data wiping, live screen recording, keylogging, Wi-Fi network logging, etc.

XNSPY offers all the remote features that ensure a smooth user experience.

Apart from these eight features, most monitoring applications have all the basic features like call logs monitoring, SMS monitoring, call recording, and many more.


However, the above eight features are essential to have in smartphone monitoring software for a complete spying experience. Our monitoring software facilitates its users with all the necessary features.
