what our customers say

“My child’s school is quite far from home and we need to be sure she’s ok on her way back from school. So we found out about this geofencing thing and gave it a shot. We were surprised it worked ‘cause once she decided to go to some store with her friend, we were informed that she has entered district we marked on the map as dangerous. Helped a lot, especially for such busy parents as us.”

“She wouldn’t tell me anything and would be angry with me for no reason. Constantly on her phone and wouldn’t let me even touch it. mSpy app was basically my last clue. When I got to her SnapChat I broke in tears, my girl was about to run away with this guy she had never met in real life. Cannot thank enough.”

“Why did I decide to use mSpy? Simple, I am not gonna sit and wait for something to happen. I read about Amanda Todd and other kids. Seriously, my son’s safety costs way more than $30.”

“I couldn’t believe my eyes what kids post on social media, such mean, hateful messages it broke my heart. My daughter is a kind and gentle girl, I am so glad I could catch these haters and stop the abuse.”

“I saw some calls annoyed my teen daughter. She got upset every time somebody called her. I know my kid so I needed to sort things out. So I got this mSpy app for identifying that mysterious guy. What I saw blew my mind: he literally bullied her, sent awful emojis, and said he’s gonna track her after school. We met up with parents and talked the whole thing out.”

Apps That You Might Want to block

You wouldn’t let your 11-year-old drive your car. So, why are you handing them the keys to the App Store or Google Play? When it comes to apps, there are loads of dangerous ones that aren’t suitable for kids. And even worse, there are apps that look fine on the surface but have hidden dangers. That’s why it’s important to have an app to block apps on their device.

Dating Apps

Most dating apps come with an age requirement of 18 years old. You’ll notice it listed in the user agreement or when you sign up for an account. So, do you really need to know how to block apps on phones if these apps have these restrictions in place? Absolutely. Despite what some parents think, apps don’t really do much to verify a user’s age. In some cases, users might be required to provide identification and prove their age. But for the most part, in terms of age restrictions, application blocking by app creators goes by the honor system. The truth is, if your daughter is 16 and she wants to use a dating app, there’s not much stopping her. That could be dangerous, particularly because predators often infiltrate dating apps in seek of unsuspecting victims.

Gambling Apps

We know what you’re thinking. Your kid is too young to care about Blackjack or Roulette. They have no interest in Online Poker, and they certainly aren’t into Bingo. So, why bother figuring out how to block apps of this nature? Well, the truth is that kids can easily become addicted to gambling, especially when they get a taste of winning. Remember, even free gambling apps can be absolutely dangerous. Free apps that let you win pretend money can easily lead to a gambling problem.


We’ve come a long way from Mario and Sonic. Today’s video games are completely immersive, designed to consume kids’ attention. And kids of all ages can’t get enough. That’s why it’s important to block apps that they might be addicted to. No matter what game they’re playing, knowing how to restrict apps can help your kids understand that there’s more to life than video games.

Video Streaming Apps

There’s no harm in Netflix, Prime, or Disney+, right? After all, they watch it on the TV in the family room. Why not give them access to the apps on their phone? Well, if watching TV and movies is getting in the way of their schoolwork, you probably need application blocking software. Of course, you can always trust them to make the right decision. But that’s easier said than done when a new series drops that they just need to watch.


Think they’re just using Facebook Messenger to chat with friends? Think again. There’s a whole world of messenger apps out there, all designed to make it easy for people to communicate. But while some are designed to help friends connect, other messaging apps let strangers contact one another. And if your child is using one of those apps, you need to know how to block apps on your phone.

Trusting Android or iOS to Block Apps

Google and Apple do a good job of making it easy for people to install and uninstall apps. But when it comes to blocking apps that might be dangerous, you’re kind of on your own. The truth is there are millions of apps out there. And while some apps might be good for some users, they might not be right for your child. That’s why it’s important for parents to find an app to block apps instead of relying on Apple and Google to keep it out of the App Store and Google Play.

How to Block Apps Remotely

If you want to block apps on their phone without physically picking up their device each time, look for apps that block apps. mSpy works perfectly in that regard. Just log in to your Control Panel, and you can start blocking them from using applications that might be installed on their phone. Don’t want them using TikTok to make videos that might put their information and face out there for the world to see? Just click Block. Want to make sure they aren’t using Snapchat to send and receive pics? Click Block again. Easy as that.

Blocking Apps is Just The Start

Not only can you block apps that might be dangerous, but you can also see what they’re up to in apps you might otherwise approve of. For example, let’s say you want to give them the freedom to use WhatsApp, but you still want to make sure they’re using it responsibly. Instead of blocking the app, you can just use mSpy to review their conversations, including sent and received messages, plus pics and videos in the conversation too.
