iKeyMonitor is a mobile application designed for anyone willing to spy on their kids or employees. It offers common monitoring features for quite a reasonable price. However, if need parental control and multimedia monitoring, you may be willing to pay a bit extra and buy another app.
Reporting and Logging
The app is marketed as key logger, which means that it gives you access to all the information entered on a given phone, including passwords. iKeyMonitor allows spying on incoming/outgoing calls, received and sent messages (including ones sent via email, WhatsApp, Line, Viber and FB chats), address book and URL history. The app can take screenshots in stealth mode and send them to you.
GPS Location Tracking Feature
There is a GPS location-tracking tool sending out notifications about the location of a given phone. However, it works only when the Internet is switched on. To get frequent notifications, the app uses a lot of data, which influences battery life.
There is no parental control option, so you cannot block any undesirable apps/content.
Even though the company has a Live Chat, the responses are very standardized. It may indicate that you are chatting with a bot. Good news is that there is a phone number and an online form for submitting requests.
There are several subscription packages (for one, three, six or twelve months). The longer the subscription period the cheaper the price. For instance, if you get a subscription only for a month, you pay $39.99. If you opt for an annual subscription, the price is $9.99/per month. Even though an annual subscription package is cheaper, it is not an option for amateurs who are just testing the water. Furthermore, there is not much sense to get an annual subscription if the app does not meet your needs.
iKeyMonitor’s Positive Features
- IKeyMonitor works in discreet mode and is hard to detect;
- You can take screenshots on a targeted phone, which can help you gain information;
- You can get passwords and see every detail entered by a phone owner.
iKeyMonitor’s Negative Features
- There is no blocking capability;
- iOS phones have to be jailbroken (Android ones – rooted) in order to access all the features;
- You need additional licenses to monitor multiple devices;
- The website is poorly translated (if you access pages translated into other languages).
Cell Phones Supported
iKeyMonitor is a decent monitoring app that allows you to spy on children or employees. However, if you need to track several devices, the app is quite an expensive alternative since you need a separate license for each gadget. Furthermore, the app works only on jailbroken devices, which is not an option if you cannot access a target phone.
