  12. Hey Franklin, with these key loggers are any of them able to log strokes if the target phone is using a tor browser, or vpn? Do they work on apps like Voxer thats like a walkie talkie and saves the saved voice chats?

  16. Hii Franklin, thanx for these knowledgeable posts n reviews.. I would like to know if any of the android monitoring app can still work in hidden or stealth mode ( after US cases ) in India.
    I want to use it for family purpose, n dont want spouse or kids to know about any such app installed on their phone. I have physical access to the target devices and i can install the app on target device, but my concern is to use it in conpletely hidden mode without knowledge of spouse or kids about this on their phone. Plz suggest.

    • Hello Ankit. The only android monitoring app that offers stealth mode is FlexiSpy to my knowledge. Please visit my review of FlexiSpy for more information.

  17. Hi,
    If the target phone remain offline for a certain period of time and gets online with wifi, would this system be able to record activities while it was offline and upload the same when it come online? Rgds

  18. If I get physical access on any one mobile just for once then can I install these software ?in a hidden mode ? Without the knowledge of the mobile owner ?

    • These apps used to offer stealth mode but they already removed that because of some policy changes in the U.S. except for FlexiSpy. It is prudent to consult your lawyer about this before installing any monitoring app which I highly recommend that you do so.

  19. Is there any keylogger which can be install remotly without the knowledge of victim ? Is that illigal ? Even if they are illigal can be installed remotely and would run without the knwledge of the victim ?

    • hello ajmal. there’s no keylogger for android that can be installed remotely. generally, it is illegal to install monitoring app on a phone that you do not have authority with. and to some states in the U.S., it is a must to inform the owner of the phone that it is being monitored.

      • tnx franklin
        can i have any one of these software ( mentioned in above article ) as a trial version . so that i can jugde with one is better for me . if any plz mention

  20. If the GPS of the target phone was turned off or disabled, will the Android key logger you’ve mentioned still log locations?

    • Hello Jen. Locations are tracked and uploaded into your control panel when GPS signal is available. The monitoring software can only track location when the GPS receiver in the phone can receive a location. If no GPS signal is detected or received, then it won’t be able to log anything. Also, if your service provider charges for GPS services, make sure your phone plans have this feature in order for GPS locations to be captured.

  21. I have been searching around for the best android keylogger that records password keystrokes when one is using to sign in Gmail account without the need of rooting the device such as Samsung note 3 or Samsung S4. What would you recommend?

    • Hello Matt. I would recommend mSpy as it has a separate keylogger feature on the control panel unlike other monitoring app where it is bundled together with the logging features.

  22. The mobile i want to monitor is not with me so how i can i monitor it or if i ask them to install will they be able to find out its used for monitoring.please advise

    • you need to have physical access to the phone you want to monitor so you can install the software. you also need to have authority over the mobile phone you want to monitor like a phone of your kid or a phone issued by the company. in the U.S., it is required to inform the user of the target phone that they are being monitor. please seek legal consultation as well.

  23. Sir Is there is any type of keylogger to record all the activities of samsung android which is free of cost?

  24. Do Android keylogger able to record Viber or whats App calls and text messages?

    • Hi Sandeep. Yes, you can track text messages from Viber or WhatsApp as long as the application provides Viber and WhatsApp messenger logging feature. The recommended best android keylogger here like mSpy, Flexispy and Highster Mobile offer such feature.

  25. Frank, in your Nov 26, 2014 to Sarah you stated there have been changes (I am guessing regulatory) that has impacted this industry. Where can I get more information on these changes? Also, will you update your reviews? I have read on other sites customer that purchased many of the software packages you mentioned, have lost many features but the companies still require them to pay for the degraded/modified service.

  26. Hi,

    Can this software still can track the location and other activities of the targeted phone if user goes offline? i.e. he/she turn off 3G or wifi or even off the phone? Thanks.

    • Hi Lena,

      Most android keylogger and mobile monitoring software uses both Wi-Fi and/or 3G/4G Internet connections. The monitored device must be connected to the internet to track location and other activities and will use the same connection to send the gathered information to your Control Panel.

  27. Hi Franklin,

    I’m wondering if I can install the keylogger for android remotely?

    • Hi Michael,

      Thank you for inquiring and verifying this. This is in fact a critical area that needs to be answered. First off, there’s no way you can install the android monitoring app without physical access to the target phone. But it takes only about 5 to 10 minutes to install depending on how well you’ll be able to follow the installation instructions. If there’s a claim in there that you can remotely install the app without physical access to the phone, you better think twice buying it. Most probably that’s a scam. Secondly, which is more important, it is illegal to install this app that are not technically yours. The apps presented here are not to encourage you to hack on other people’s mobile devices but in protecting your interest may it be on your business or your family.

  28. Thank you for this very informative and comprehensive information about keyloggers for Android phone. Are the keylogger apps you detailed here are undetectable?

    • Hi Sarah,

      Yes, all the Android keyloggers I reviewed here are invisible and undetectable. The target phone will never see the app running and will not see any difference on the mobile operations. I hope this helps!

      • Hi Sarah. I just want to clear this out. Due to the recent events concerning mobile monitoring apps, most if not all mobile monitoring device now are not hidden on the background and the person who uses the monitored phone must be informed that the phone is being monitored. You must also have proper authority on the phone to legally monitor any mobile device.
