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.”

mSpy Screenrecorder: See What They’re Talking About in a Snap

Sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with all the apps your kids are using to communicate with friends, make new ones, and connect with their peers. Thankfully, a hidden screenshot app like Screenrecorder can help. Baked right into mSpy, Screenrecorder does exactly that — it records the screen on a phone, sends screenshots to your mSpy control, and gives you the information you need to address the situation with your kids, whatever it might be.

Screen Recorders and Schoolwork Monitoring

It’s no secret that kids love to defy their parents, especially when it comes to doing their homework or school assignments. And because children and teens do most of their assignments on their device, whether a Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, or Android, you can’t exactly ask them to turn over their device when they walk through the front door. So how can you be sure they’re actually doing their work? That’s where an undetectable screen recorder comes in. Screenrecorder by mSpy lets you drop in on what your kids are doing to ensure that they’re using their time wisely. Are they playing video games or chatting on social media when they should be getting their work done? A hidden screenshot app can tell you.

How a Phone Activity Recorder Can Let You Know If They’re Safe

Is your teen getting older? Then there’s a good chance they’re making new connections on various social media platforms. Some of those could be dating apps, like Tinder. And once they meet new people, they’ll likely add them to her Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or Snapchat contact list. If they’re talking to people they shouldn’t be talking to, a hidden screenshot app can clue you in. You’ll know who they are talking to, what they are saying, and if they are doing something that could be incredibly compromising.

But it’s not just dating apps that are the issue. Many innocent social media platforms are littered with people pretending to be teens or kids. They may attempt to befriend your teen and trick them into doing something they shouldn’t. An invisible screen recorder can help you discover what’s really happening.

A Phone Activity Recorder Is an Employer’s Best Friend

You pay your employees. So it’s not unreasonable for you to expect them to actually work for you. But some employees, especially those that are on the road, might be using their time for something else. In fact, they could be working for a competitor at the exact same time as they’re expected to be working for you. A hidden screen recorder can tell you what’s up when you can’t be with them. If they’re using their work phone for extra employment, you can find out and terminate your relationship.

But it’s not just about catching your employees working two jobs. It’s about making sure they’re adhering to your policies. If they’re using work time to check social media or surf the Internet, you can find out with a secret screen recorder for Android.

How to Install a Screen Recorder

Getting started with the best hidden screen recorder Android app is a piece of cake. Just install mSpy and you’ll be ready to go. Seriously. And if you already have mSpy, there’s nothing more you need to do. Screenrecorder is available in your Control panel.

How to Enable Screen Recording

Enabling a hidden screenshot app is easy, especially if you choose mSpy. Just purchase mSpy, install it on their device, and then log in to your Control Panel whenever you want to review their chats. There’s no fiddling around needed and no complex hoops to jump through every time you want to review their messages. Just log in and you’ll see if there are new screenshots available. It really is that easy.

Screenrecorder Covers the Apps They Used Most

Let’s be real. The most important thing you want to know is who they’re chatting with and what they’re saying. That’s why we designed our hidden screenshot app to work with the most popular chat apps, including WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and Skype, with more apps coming soon.

As they type away in these apps, mSpy takes notice. Every time there’s a change on screen (for example, they scroll a page, type on a keyboard, or a new message arrives), mSpy takes a series of screenshots. When a certain number of screenshots have been taken, it sends them to the Control Panel.

Why a Hidden Screen Recorder Is Best

Not all screen recorders are created equal. Some can be detected by the person you happen to be recording. If you’re trying to monitor your child with a secret screen recorder for Android, the last thing you want them to do is actually know about it. That’s why it’s important to look for a hidden screenshot option instead of one that lets them know you’re recording their activity.

What’s the difference? A detectable screen recorder app often places an app icon on the device you’re recording. Kids are very savvy, and they’ll know right away if something new appears on their phone that they didn’t download. But with an alternative like the mSpy Screenrecorder, they’ll have no idea that you’re able to see their activity.

The Difference Between a Keylogger and a Screen Recorder

If you’re searching for the best screen recorder Android apps, you might come across keylogger. It’s important to note that the two aren’t the same. mSpy actually comes with both, but some apps claim to be a secret screen recorder app when really they’re just a keylogger. The difference? A logger logs keystrokes typed on a keyboard. But an undetectable screen recorder will actually show you everything on screen. That includes words typed, pics sent, videos received, and anything else you can imagine (and even stuff you can’t).
