Top 5 Best Spy Apps in Android Phone

There are many spy apps for android phones in market. You will not find any in Google play as it’s against their policies to host a spy app. Even if an app claims that it is a spy app and is hosted in Google Play it will either be showing notification or the icon cannot be hidden which is useless for spying.

Spy apps can be used to get call records, SMS messages, location, contacts, chrome browser history without having to root your phone. But if you want to spy on facebook messages, whatsapp messages, VoIP calls then the target phone needs to be rooted.

Hi Srihari, The Call Recorder is working fine on one of the device but suddently stopped pulling Audio Files from another 2nd device. It was pulling on the new device earlier but has suddenly stopped i guess after that phone was done with a OS update. Target phone is Samsung S8 running Pie with latest update done 2 days ago. Pl advice a solution for the same. Should i uninstall and reinstall the app there?


Hello Srihari,
Thanks for this wonderful app. It helped in saving my marriage by taking precautions. Stay blessed.
Could you keep the name as Record Audio or anything not beginning with the letter A. It shows up in the top of the list of Apps and my spouse commented that the icon looks scary.
