This technology allows the user to keep track on the target phone from anywhere, as long as both devices are connected to a language. If you have a working network services and two devices, one target and one where the target phone is being monitored (or stalked really) and voila! You are sorted. Spy applications upload the logs containing all the recorded activities to spy application servers. This way, call and text message logs from the target phone can be remotely accessed for any location as long as you have a source of connection, your web browser and the password to your online account.

  • Monitor using a Remote Device

A remote device that is configured to access the information and logs of a target device in real time makes monitoring the target phone or computer much easier. Since you are always logged into the spy application’s servers, you have real time access to the target device and are able to monitor it as long as you are connected to a network. The good thing is that you do not need to monitor through your own device. You can use any device and enter login details for getting access to the control panel.

  • Capture Actual Screenshots

Good spy software can transmit calls, can provide you with logs of all the activities and every single keystroke made on the target device. The only thing it cannot do is provide you with a real time video. But do not worry, any good spy application comes equipped with the perfect alternative, it can capture full sized screenshots that shows the various activities of the user on the target computer or mobile.

  • Monitors Emails

Spy software can provide you with a complete log of the list of emails sent and received on the target email. It can also show real time activity of the said emails. This feature is particularly useful for employers who want to make sure their employees are not stealing company’s information behind their back.

  • Monitors Websites

Spy technology also allows the user to access a complete and detailed log of all the URLs visited on the target computer. Plus, it can also keep track of frequently visited websites exclusively on any type of internet browser, such as Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome and others.

  • Records Every Single Keystroke

It can be installed as well as used on a local computer anywhere. Most applications are not equipped with such a mode of installation, but TheOneSpy offer you this exclusive feature with no extra cost.
