7 Steps for Remote Control of an mSpy Enabled Cell Phone
Sometimes you want to update or change a device that you can't physically access.
There are a number of reasons you might want to monitor or control a device remotely. It can be due to company updates and information sharing, or in the case of an emergency, when someone's stolen your phone. With remote management and control, you can perform a number of functions without ever needing to physically access the mobile phone you are targeting. My Spy (mSpy) does all the work. Here are some examples of what you can accomplish:
- 2This is the information you'll find on your device that includes things like battery life, available networks, and which mobile operator it is using. While this information may seem trivial, if you're trying to locate a child, knowing that his or her battery has no charge can be the difference between panicking and calmly reacting.Access Phone Info:Advertisement
- 3In the event your device has been compromised, or worse, stolen, you can remotely wipe it. Note that this will also wipe the mSpy program from the device as well. This is also a last straw tactic you can use if an employee has stolen your company phone and refused to return it. To do this, simply click 'Wipe Phone', and follow the prompts. Note that once your device is wiped, you will no longer be able to access it with mSpy. As an alternative, you can always remotely lock your device.Wipe Phone:
- 4You can also control a wide range of phone settings, selecting when and how every feature of mSpy is activated. At the top, you'll see that the update interval for how often your new commands are received by the phone can be set. Next to that you'll see the Location Data update interval. Finally, below that, you can set each item on the phone to either 'All Connections', 'WiFi Only', or 'Off'. Note that some settings, like phone and SMS or Text Messaging, are best left to All Connections. This is because they send very little data, but not allowing them to regularly update can cause a loss of some information under certain circumstances.Control Phone Settings:
- 5This has been discussed elsewhere, but if you want to remotely block websites, you can use this feature. Simply scroll down, and select the website you would like to block. Note that blocking a website will prevent any pages on that domain from being seen. In the example, you can see that Facebook, Google, and XXX are all blocked.Block Websites:
- 7You can also remotely block your device for set periods of time. While blocked, the device will not to respond to attempts to unblock it, unless initiated by you, through the Control Panel. Once the block expires or is canceled, things will go back to working normally again.Device Blocking by time:Advertisement

Questions and Answers
Can you search for older text messages?
Just want to see older text messages. I have tried: Haven't used anything yet. Just looking for the best way this can be done.. I think it was caused by: No problem. Just need information
A lot of spy applications, such as mSpy and FlexiSpy are not data retrieval tools and offer no solution to examine messages that have been deleted or have been sent prior to their installation.
On the other hand, Auto Forward Spy (iOS, Android), SurePoint Spy, and Highster Mobile (iOS, Android) claim to be able both to retrieve old messages and to have a chance of restoring even deleted messages. Usually, when a message has been just deleted, its previous space on the file system remains not overwritten by other data for some time. This means that you might be able to restore deleted messages too.

I don't know password after using fingerprint for a year, I accidentally hit password when it failed to recognize my fingerprint. I have tried: Every password I have ever used. I think it was caused by: I'm not even sure I set a password when phone was new
