Sometimes you need to know what's going on and a recording device can get the detailed information you need.

    Real Life Spy Bugging
    With this feature, you literally turn the other person's phone into a spy device. It will work in any environment and record everything to your mSpy control panel. This is useful almost anywhere, as it can provide irrefutable evidence, which can allow you to constructively deal with a cheating boyfriend, a child on the edge of trouble, or an employee about to cross the line with a competitor. You simply select the time you would like a recording to take place on the bottom right of the menu, and then the recording will automatically begin.

    Use your Control Panel to Listen In
    This technology works by secretly turning on the cell phone to track and record any conversation. You can even set it to work with certain times if you're not sure the person will have cell reception. That way the phone will record everything. Later, when it is back in a signal zone, the recorded files will be synced, and you can listen. To do that, just navigate to your 'Control Panel', and select 'Recordings' from the left menu. This will bring up a list of recordings, which you can play or download.
