    I feel great that I am using more than half of the apps mentioned in this blog! Yes, Xnspy monitors Tinder, WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook messenger, LINE, KIK, and Viber. You can also access the browser history, emails, and SMS to monitor the mobile activities of your teenagers. Boys and girls are almost equally at threat from cyber bullies.

  2. Alish says:

    Gosh, I am always on Instagram and so is my daughter. Yes, I do have concerns about her social media activity and her being a vulnerable prey for predators online. I guess I will try using Xnspy to monitor her activities. Does it also monitor Tinder?

  3. Brandon says:

    I’ve been using Xnspy for a while to keep a track of my workforce. One major problem it helped me sort was tracking their current location. The geo-fencing tool made it possible to know if they went outside the state where we operate.

  4. Krista says:

    Thanks for the list of Android apps for 2017. Yes, it’s true that this digital era has many gadgets that make life easy. An app (Xnspy) that allows WhatsApp monitoring is a break through, especially with the end-to-end encryption.
