That’s the official version, but imagine if you forget to ask. This software is 100% undetectable and allows track outgoing and incoming calls, read text messages, have access to photos but also emails. You can also control apps and programs and track your position on a GPS. In short, mSpy is the perfect tool for the budding little spy…or the jealous and suspicious husbands and wives. The solution to escape from it? Use a lock method: PIN, fingerprint, etc. Do you have a question? Do you think you have installed spyware on your device? Check that Play Protect is on because mSpy can’t work if you keep an eye on the pimple (in the Play Store app, go to your profile at the top right and then PlayProtect).
