The Xnspy iPhone spy app has become even better than it was before, after its recent update. Now it has better compatibility with the latest iOS platforms (e.g. iPhone 8). It is compatible with jailbroken iOS OS versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x, up to 9.0.2. Moreover, for non-jailbroken devices, it is compatible with iOS OS versions 6.x, 7.x, up to 10.1.1. Users of the latest iPhone devices can use the app without glitches. The features in the iOS version allow comprehensive remote access to almost everything a user does with the iPhone.
While it is not exactly an offline monitoring tool, it works by gathering data and uploading updates to a browser-based control panel. This makes it easier for people to access the information whenever they need. However, for this to happen, there must be internet connection on the device on which you have installed the app. When the user turns data connection off, the app will not be able to upload information. Immediately the connection is back on, the app will update the information on the control panel.
Features this iPhone App Offers –
Access to Conversations
The information you can access includes numerous features in the mobile device. For instance, you can read entire threads of incoming and outgoing text messages. The app also provides detailed call logs, telling you an entire history of outgoing and incoming calls. You can see the date, time, and duration of each call. You can read conversations and access call logs on various Internet Messenger apps. It supports access to conversations on WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, KIK, Facebook messenger, and LINE. You can also track social media activity on Instagram and Tinder.
Access to Calls and Ambient Recording
One important issue to keep in mind is that it does not allow you to listen to live calls. What it does support is listening to recorded call. Xnspy has the capacity to record all incoming and outgoing calls. After that, it uploads the files to the control panel, where you can find them and listen to them at your convenience. This does come as a disappointment because people find it better to be able to listen to live calls. Nonetheless, there is a reason for the design of the app to be this way. It helps the app maintain stealth. Often apps with the ability to listen to live calls give away their presence by causing glitches in the performance of the app.
Interestingly, the app gives users the ability to turn on the recorder remotely to record ambient discussions. You can record discussions that happen in your absence without the need to be there. No need to hide behind closed door spraining your neck. You can simply record discussions and listen to them from your PC or on your mobile by accessing the control panel.
GPS Tracking and Geofencing
GPS tracking is also possible, with geofencing inclusive. This means that you can know the whereabouts of people across the globe. You can use the geofencing feature to know whenever the target person enters or leaves a specific area or venue. The data is available in Google Maps, which makes it easy to check. Besides, there is a history of places visited, with details like the date and time.
Social Media Monitoring
Although this app does not offer a range of social media monitoring options, it does allow access to Instagram and Tinder. You can read all incoming and outgoing conversations on both apps. However, one setback is that you cannot delete any conversations. This also applies to text messages and IM chats. All you can do is to read the conversations. For parents, this features is very useful,though because in the past there have been many incidents stemming from Tinder. People have gone missing, assaulted, and kidnapped through random contacts through social media.
Photos and Videos Sharing
Almost every mobile device nowadays has an inbuilt camera. iPhone users enjoy high-resolution photos, which is why teenagers love sharing updates. However, there is a catch to it. While people share photos on social media and in chats with random people, unfriendly predators are waiting. If they get their hands on photos or videos with sensitive content, they can use it against their victims. Cyberbullying, for instance, has been one of the most-talked-about issues. People get their hand on photos and videos of their victims in a weak moment and embarrass them by sharing the content to make it viral. Some cases have ended in the deaths of bullied people.
In a corporate setting, people use photos and videos of sensitive documents or incidences to tarnish the reputation of their competitors. Sometimes, corporate espionage comes from people stealing sensitive information in the form of photos and videos of documents.
Block Installed Apps
Most employers who use this app get the power to block certain apps their employees install on the company-issued device. Likewise, parents can block unwanted apps remotely from the control panel. Although the design of the app aims at maintaining stealth, this is where you may experience some setback. Upon blocking apps, if the target person tries to access it, he or she will get a prompt informing them to seek your permission. Therefore, if you want to use this app to block someone’s access to installed apps, let them know that you are watching. In some ways, this is necessary as an ethical practice.
Watchlist Unwanted Contacts, Words, and Email Address
The app has the ability to alert theuser for specific things. For instance, it can alert you when you have added a particular contact to the watchlist. When the watchlisted contact calls or messages the person you are monitoring, you will receive an alert. It also allows watchlisting words, so that you get alerts when the person you are watching uses those words in text or email conversations. You can also watchlist email addresses and receive alerts for when unwanted emails arrive in the Gmail account of your target person.
