So, has your little girl entered her teenage! If yes, then probably, a number of concerns regarding your grown up daughter must be hitting your mind. Well, this is natural because children during their teenage are more likely to get diverted and need the guidance of parents to remain focused.
Last evening, one of my female friends shared her thoughts over a cup of evening tea, “My daughter asked me to buy her latest eye makeup. She is just 16 and I don’t think it is the right age for all this. She has made some new friends on chat, and I guess those friends are suggesting such things to her.”
My friend’s words’ made me think where exactly the problem is and how I can help her. So I took my laptop and sat for a couple of hours to see if technology gives a solution to this problem. And, I was completely shocked to see that several mothers have posted their queries regarding their daughters.

One of them was something like, “My daughter is always busy chatting on his cell phone and I want to track her phone so as to know to whom she talks.” Immediately after reading these lines, I was easily able to relate it with my friend’s problem and got the solution!
Tracking her daughter’s cell phone was the only way to clear all her dilemmas, but there was a new trouble. If she checks her daughter’s cell phone, her daughter might get alert and delete all her chats afterwards. So, I researched further and what I found was a cell phone spyware.
Cell Phone Spy Software is the Thing!
Probably most of us are not aware of what exactly is a spyware for cell phone (even I heard it for the first time). On the Web, I found a phrase, written as, “Which spy software is best to download and works in completely hidden mode for an iPhone?” And, these lines gave me an idea that it is something like a software program used to track cell phones.
So, I explored the Internet and came up with the following! Cell phone spy software is just like any other cell phone app and it works to fetch almost all the data from the device on which it is installed. Additionally, these spy softwares are made to work in hidden mode, i.e. the software is never visible to the cell phone user.
The software has to be installed on the cell phone you wish to monitor. It takes hardly 5 or more minutes; so one can do it while the other person is away. Once installation is complete, it will automatically start tracking cell phone activities and will send reports to your user account.
Common tracking features of cell phone spy programs are:
- To detect browsing history
- To monitor Snapchat, Whatsapp, Facebook chat conversations, etc.
- To fetch texts
- View all Instagram messages
- To track real time GPS location
- To fetch emails, call logs and contact list
- All this data can be seen on a user control panel, which you need to login.
Though, the word ‘spy’ sounded a bit weird to me at first, but soon I got to know that it is more of a child monitoring app which is designed for the welfare for adolescents. This was an apt way to know if my friend’s daughter was chatting to some wrong friends on her cell phone. So, I called her and explained everything.
So, if you are also facing similar issues with your daughter or son, then a cell phone monitoring app for parents can be highly helpful. While your child talks, chats or hangs outside home, you can watch their every single activity by using spyware.
