If Any Questions Left

When comparing mSpy vs XNSPY, which app makes monitoring easier?

Take a look at the live demo for both apps and it’s clear that mSpy offers more monitoring power. For instance, the messenger section of XNSPY covers off WhatsApp, Viber, Line, Kik, Tinder, plus a few others that are grayed out and unavailable. mSpy, on the other hand, includes more social networks than you’ll find on XNSPY (which is great news because kids use all kinds of social media networks to chat with friends and strangers). In addition to the ones mentioned above, you’ll find support for Telegram, Snapchat, Instagram, and more. The XNSPY app just doesn’t stack up.

What’s the difference between mSpy and XNSPY?

Both apps are designed for parents who want to monitor what their kids are doing online. And both apps offer the features you want, like the ability to see installed apps and block them, a keylogger, location monitoring, and more. It’s true that mSpy has some features that XNSPY doesn’t have (and vice versa), but for the most part the XNSPY vs mSpy battle is even. However, mSpy packs more features into its single plan that XNSPY. To get some advanced features, you need to opt for a more expensive XNSPY plan, making things rather confusing and quite expensive.

XNSPY vs mSpy install process: Which is easier?

mSpy definitely wins the battle here. When you purchase your mSpy subscription, you get detailed install instructions sent right to your email, tailored to your exact device type. So if you’re installing mSpy on a rooted Android, you’ll have instructions for a rooted Android. If you’re installing it on a non-jailbroken iPhone, you’ll get install instructions to walk you through the correct steps. With XNSPY, you might feel a little bit lost as the instructions aren’t as straightforward.

How is mSpy vs XNSPY customer support?

Definitely mSpy. If you need help with XNSPY before installation or after, you need to submit a ticket on their site and wait for a support agent to respond to your question. While the website recently added live chat functionality to its websites, it’s not clear if you’re talking to a robot or a real person. With mSpy, you get 24/7 help when you need it. And rather than having to submit a ticket and wait for a response, you can contact mSpy on several different toll-free numbers, including direct lines for the United States, Brazil, France, Turkey, Mexico, and Italy.
