3 Steps to Track a Child with mSpy using their GPS Location

Even good children can sometimes take the wrong road, or be convinced to do bad things.

Every parent knows how scary it can be when a child has friends you don't approve of, or they come home late, with poor excuses. Using GPS Location Tracking from My Spy (mSpy), you can keep tabs on them, no matter where they are, or where they said they were. In fact, being alerted to your child being where they shouldn't be, or deviating from an agreed set of plans can literally be lifesaving information.

  1. 1
    Monitor location in real time
    Any time you're worried that a child or employee isn't going where he or she should be, or that someone you love may not be completely honest with you about their activities, you can discretely monitor their location with GPS. Using this feature, you'll be able to see their location in real time, on a detailed map, check their travel history over select periods of time, and even identify locations when GPS is not able to be accessed. This is particularly useful with children who aren't going where they said they might be, but it can also help to know when an employee might be interviewing over lunch, or just pretending to be sick. Likewise, it's an especially useful tool at tracking a cheating husband or wife, without the risk of actually following them.

Questions and Answers

Can I use mSpy with Verizon Nokia smartphone?

It is a joint account and I am the account holder for both cellphones.

As long as the Nokia smartphone is Android 4 or higher the mSpy app will be able to work on the device. You will still need access to the phone physically if you want to monitor text messages because you will root the phone to install the software.

There are no free spy apps for iPhones. You also will have to use one like mSpy that can be installed without jailbreaking the iPhone. All spy apps will be able to have their data viewed either online or a monitoring compatible app that you install on your phone. Auto Forward can also be installed onto his iPhone remotely with just the use of his phone number.

Dose it work when GPS is turned off?

My girlfriend is cheating on me. I have tried: Nothing

Yes, the mSpy will broadcast the location from within the spy app even if your girlfriend's GPS is turned off. Apps with features like this are excellent because people like me keep their location turned off to save on battery life and also so that when we post on social media it does not give our location away to everyone.

My ex-boyfriend has people following me and telling him my location?

I am located even though my GPS is off and my location on Android phone is off, how is this possible please? My location is turned off and my GPS on phone yet people keep following me. I have tried: Turned off location on mobile phone and GPS and WiFi. I think it was caused by: He is stalking me and using third party to inform my location all the time.
