Given how important our smartphones are to our daily lives, it only makes sense to want to protect them and ourselves while we use them. Some of the iPhone spy apps on this list are a bit fun, while others are seriously used. Whatever your reason for wanting to use a spy app, these are some of the best around.
I will not go into the legality of these applications because it is a very delicate area. I guess you will take all of this into account when using an iPhone spy app.
The best spy apps for iPhone
mSpy is one of the most powerful spy apps. It includes keylogger, call monitor, website blocker, geo alert to let you know if the handset enters a location you don't want, conversation recorder that works with WhatsApp, tracking GPS, an Internet monitor and a remote control. The app also comes with 24/24 customer support. mSpy offers three different subscription options depending on your needs.
iKeyMonitor is a key entry app that collects data from SMS, WhatsApp, websites, etc. If it is typed on the iPhone keyboard, it is saved in this application. The app installs quickly and quietly and will stay on the phone, recording every keystroke invisibly. It can also capture screenshots to show you what's going on as well as what's being typed. The app will then email you a report of the keystrokes. iKeyMonitor is quite expensive, but comes with a three-day free trial so you can try before you buy.
Xnspy is similar to the previous two but a bit cheaper. This iPhone spy app can monitor calls, keystrokes, track the phone using GPS, record secretly using the microphone, and alert you when particular words are typed or mentioned. The real strength of Xnspy is that it happens in real time. Even if the user deletes chats and call logs, you will still see them.
Mobistealth iPhone Spy
Mobistealth iPhone Spy app is another great app that records chats, SMS, call logs, etc. You can also activate the microphone to listen to calls or conversations, use GPS, Wi-Fi or cell tracking to find the location, etc. It works on both jailbroken and non-jailbroken iPhones and is completely silent so the user never has to know what is going on.
FlexiSPY is another all-around iPhone spy app that does everything from controlling keystrokes, recording calls, tracking its location, and more. It also includes remote control options allowing you to remotely activate the video camera or microphone to record what is happening at that moment. You can also remotely modify the phone for on-the-fly control.
Mobile Spy for iPhone is similar to the others on this list but has an extra trick up its sleeve. It is also different in that it alerts the user that they are being watched. This is more useful for employee cell phones but can also be used for other purposes. It can monitor screen, calls, SMS, chats and social networks, provide GPS location, lock phone, retrieve SIM card data and email logs.
HighsterMobile is another spy app for iPhone which can record calls, pictures and videos. It can also generate reports on emails, call history, location, social media usage, apps, browser history, and other data. It can also provide real-time alert when entering keywords and block apps from being installed on the phone. The app can also take photos using the phone's camera without the knowledge of the user.
SpyEra is one of the most comprehensive apps for spying on the iPhone, but it's also one of the most expensive. It can listen to or record live calls, record Skype calls, record SMS, chats, instant messages, social media usage, Facetime. It is undetectable to the user and offers full control over the device and complete monitoring of everything that is done on the phone.
If all you want is to know where your phone is, Phone Tracker for iPhones might be right for you. It's free too, which is a bonus. It stays silent on the phone and doesn't need the app to work. It can ping a location every 2 minutes and is fully configurable. Although not as comprehensive as other spy apps, it does what it does well.
Auto Forward doesn't seem to admit it's an iPhone spy app, but that's exactly what it is. It can retrieve emails, iMessages, chats, location, social media activity, text messages, call logs, images and videos from browser history and all aspects of usage from the iPhone. It records everything and then uploads it to a secure server for you to browse at your leisure. Although it works well as an iPhone backup utility, it also works as a monitoring software.
Whether you want to spy on a brother or partner, monitor your kids' phone usage, or monitor your employees, these iPhone spy apps will help you do it!
