There are quite a lot of spy apps out there these days, and it’s quite difficult to choose the one that actually works and legal to use too because we don’t want to get into troubles we can avoid.
Phone spy apps are very useful, whether you’re a concerned parent looking to keep an eye on your kid, or a firm that would like to monitor its staffs, a good spying software should come in handy.
This article is giving a complete review of the Cocospy app and what you should expect when using the app.
WHAT IS COCOSPY?
Cocospy is a utility app that allows you spy on other devices discreetly. It’s used by parents who want to keep an eye on their kids remotely, and companies looking to monitor their employees”.
Cocospy allows discreet monitoring of another device. It’s an app that lets you keep track of other people’s activities in real time while remaining undetected.
Two things that makes this app stick out from others is the fact that it is supported in both Android and iOS platforms, and no root or jailbreak is required to use it. Without further ado, let’s discuss the features in detail.
Features of Cocospy mobile phone Tracking App
- GPS Tracking
The app allows you to track real-time locations, keeping 24/7 tabs on the targeted device and user. You can also see address of these locations, and check location history of where the targeted device has been. It’s the best way to monitor your child’s movement without having to call him every ten minutes saying “Baby where are you, are you sure you’re still in school?”
- SMS Reader
You can see incoming and outgoing messages, read all messages with timestamps, including the deleted ones – how cool is that!. Multimedia files sent or received can also be viewed and downloaded on your device. Another amazing thing about this feature is the ability to view a sender’s detail, so you’re not just spying on a chat without knowing where it’s coming from.
- Call Tracking
Cocospy allows you to record all calls being made to and from the monitored device, gives complete access to call log details containing contact frequency, call duration, timestamps, names, and contacts of people contacted with the device being monitored. Talk about having your own private NSA app.
- Geofence Alerts
On your cocospy dashboard, you can mark out forbidden zones on the map and get alerts whenever a forbidden zone has been trespassed.
This in my opinion, is the best parental control feature on the app. Your kids won’t be going to night clubs or pubs without you knowing if you’ve set up a geofence around that particular club or pub. However, this feature is not accessible to iPhone users unless you get a jailbreak.
- Key logger
This is a feature that allows recording of keystrokes input on the device. This is actually an unpopular feature because it means you can have access to login credentials of the person using the targeted device.
It is mostly used by firms to prevent employees from using the device for personal activities. If you know they have a key logger, you wouldn’t use it to log in to Facebook. It’s also not available for non jailbroken devices yet.
- Photos and Videos
The app gives complete access to the gallery of targeted device. You can view pictures, videos, and audio clips on the device being monitored, you can also download these files to your own devices if needed.
- Browser History
Cocospy gives access to the browser history being monitored. This way, you will know the websites your child is accessing, and when he/she is accessed it. It’s also useful for firms that have policies against employees using their telecommunication resources for personal purposes.
- Social Media monitoring
The app lets you monitor social media activities on the device like reading text messages and viewing group chats. Of course, they all come with timestamps and are compatible with big social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, and Viber.
- Calendar Information
The app grants users access to calendar information on the targeted device. These include and may not be limited to To-do list, event entries, and special alarm dates. This is most useful if you want to have a peek into your kid’s schedule and know things they like doing on a regular basis.
PRICING AND SUBSCRIPTION PLANS
The price for using cocospy depends largely on your mobile OS and the duration of the subscription.
For Android OS Devices: Subscribing for the Basic plan which supports 1 device starts at $39.99 a month, the three months subscription is priced at $59.99, and the yearly subscription plan is $99.99. For the Family plan that alllows up to 3 devices starts at $69.99 a month, the three months subscription is priced at $69.99, and the yearly subscription comes at $199.99.
For iOS Devices: The Family Plan which supports up to 5 devices starts at $99.99 a month, the three months subscription is priced at $199.99, and the yearly subscription comes at $399.99. The Business plan which supports up to 25 devices starts at $399.99 a month, the 3-month subscription is priced at $699.99, and the yearly subscription comes at $999.99.
Pricing on both OS platforms is quite satisfactory considering the packages that come with it. The only downside is the availability of subscription plans.
The Android platform doesn’t have a business subscription plan available yet so, it’s really not okay for companies using Android devices, while the iOS doesn’t also have a basic plan yet so if you just want to monitor just one device on your iPhone, it’ll cost you more than it should.
All in all, it’s all worthwhile considering the level of quality service that you get from using the app.
