Sometimes one is left with no other choice but to spy on their partner or kids because they are hiding something from them. If you are also going through this situation then you must be looking for ways to track your loved one’s so that you can find out the hidden truth.
However, if try to do it manually then you will fail because they will know that you are keeping an eye on them. So the better option is to remotely snoop into their phone because it contains everything about them. For this purpose, you will need a special app that can remotely track all their activities on their phone.
I have had an opportunity to explore such an app recently that can track someone’s phone without them knowing. The name of the app is eyeZy and here’s what I think about it in my comprehensive eyeZy review.

What Device Works With eyeZy?
You must be concerned about the compatibility of eyeZy and would want to know whether it will work on your target device or not? Well, you don’t need to worry because it can track both Android and iPhone without root or jailbreak permissions.
However, you need to be careful about the OS version of the target phone because it can only track Android phones running on Android 4.0 and above. And in the case of iOS, it can only track iPhones running on version 7.0 and above. If you still have doubt you can check their website or contact their customer support to know whether the app is compatible with your target device or not.
In my case, I have installed it on a Samsung M12 currently running on Android 11 and I faced no compatibility issues as such.
How To Setup & Install eyeZy?
Most people find it difficult to install and set up spyware because it needs lots of permissions to work properly. But you don’t need to worry about it here because eyeZy provides you a step-by-step walkthrough guide with video demonstrations which makes installing this app a cakewalk.
1. First you will need to create your account on eyeZy. This account will be used to remotely track the target phone activities. Just click on Try Now button on the eyeZy website and then create your account. If you want to see a demo before creating your account then you can also do that by clicking on the See it in action option. I recommend you to try the demo first, it will give you a brief idea about how eyeZy works and whether you should go for it or not.
2. You just need to enter your email address and purchase a plan based on your requirement. Next, you will receive the login credentials in your email. With these credentials, you need to login into your account.
3. Once you are logged in you will see the app installation guide on your dashboard. Just follow the on-screen steps and you will be easily able to install the app on the target phone.
How Does eyeZy Perform In Different Aspects?
Once the eyeZy app is installed on the target phone you are now ready to monitor activities on it. You can find different features on eyeZy that are categorized into 9 different sections which are as follows:
- Keystroke Captures
- Social Spotlight
- Phone Analyzer
- Plan Breaker
- Files Finder
- Web Magnifier
- Connection Blocker
- Magic alerts
We will discuss all of these features one by one but before that, let’s have a quick look at the dashboard of the app.
So the first thing you see upon logging into your eyeZy account is its dashboard. It is the place where you get all the details about the target phone like its activities, calls, messages, and location all in one place. If you are in hurry, a quick look over the dashboard can give you a good insight.
So that’s about the dashboard, now let’s talk about how eyeZy works.
How To Use eyeZy Features?
1. Keystroke Capture
The first feature you can see on eyeZy is the Keystroke Capture. By the name it is evident what this feature does, but if you don’t know then let me tell you that it captures each and every word that is typed on the target phone. It does it in two ways; by using a keylogger and by capturing the phone screenshot whenever the person opens any of their social media or instant messaging apps.
The keylogger section shows you the list of all the words that are typed on the target phone. It can be words typed on a browser, social media, messages, or anywhere else. The good thing is that it even allows you to filter the specific app from which you want to see the keystrokes. You can select the app from the drop-down menu at the top left corner.
Although it works well, the thing I personally didn’t like is that sometimes eyeZy won’t show the complete typed words. It only shows a few alphabets and you have to guess what the message was about. However, what has impressed me is that it can even track keystrokes made in a private window on a browser.
b) Screen Recorder
Don’t worry if some messages were missed by the keylogger as you can read them in the screen recorder section of the app. Here you can see the recorded screen of the target phone whenever a social media app is opened on it. This means you can read all their chats and also see with whom they are chatting.
Similar to the keylogger section it also allows you to filter out the screen recordings on the basis of social media apps. It’s a great feature to have but unlike other apps like uMobix, the app is not quick to sync the recorded screen to you.
It may take up to 10 to 15 minutes for you to see anything on your dashboard. However, it won’t matter much because you will only check your account once in a while and till then it must have accumulated all the data.
Also, I would like to add here that I tried multiple apps like Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Tinder, Snapchat, and Telegram but the app was only able to capture the screen of Instagram and WhatsApp. It was maybe because of the brand and OS of my target phone.
2. Social Spotlight
If the sole purpose of your bugging someone’s phone with a spy app is to see their social media activity then this feature will definitely excite you. From text messages, emails, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and more you can read all the conversations of the target person.
a) Text Messages
In case you are looking to read the text messages of your husband or wife then you are in luck because eyeZy can track it for you. Not just the text messages but also the photos sent are also visible here.
What amazed me about eyeZy is that it can even show you messages that were deleted just after receiving them. I intentionally deleted some messages after sending them for testing purposes and it was able to fetch them for me.
If you are using eyeZy for monitoring your employees then you would love the fact that it can even spy on the Gmail account of the target device. However, it is not very accurate i.e. it may not be able to track each and every email that the target person sends or receives.
In my case, it was only able to track an old email that I sent two months ago but not the new one. But this feature may work better on a rooted phone.
c) WhatsApp Messages
Without reading someone’s WhatsApp messages you cannot properly track someone because it is the most used instant messaging platform in the world. That being said, it can record all the chats that happen between different contacts on WhatsApp and keep all of them separately. So it’s easier for you to see which conversation happened with which contact.
To my surprise, it was even able to record the chats that were deleted quickly after receiving or sending them. However, eyeZy lacks the WhatsApp call log and calls recording feature as seen on FlexiSPY.
d) Facebook Messenger
Ever since the secret conversation feature is introduced on Facebook Messenger, it has become a favorite chatting app for cheaters. But don’t worry, if you are partner is using the Fb Messenger app for hiding their illicit relationship, you can still know about it as eyeZy can even track the Messenger secret conversation along with the regular conversations on Facebook Messenger.
I can recommend it to you because I have analyzed this feature and it worked great for me.
e) Instagram DM
Instagram DM is a place where you can flirt with people you don’t even know. If your partner is having romantic conversations with someone on Instagram, you would know about it with the help of eyeZy. It easily tracks all the Insta DMs and here’s the proof.
Apart from the above-mentioned social media and the instant messaging apps, eyeZy can track Snapchat, Viber, Telegram, Skype, Tinder, etc.
3. Phone Analyzer
The Phone Analyzer tool analyzes all the incoming and outgoing calls on the target device. It shows you the record of all the calls that have been made or received on the target cell phone. You can know the phone number along with the duration of the call. However, when I deleted a call just after receiving it the call log was not reflected on the dashboard.
Also, it can only show call logs but cannot record the calls as other spy apps like KidsGuard Pro, and FlexiSPY. Besides calls, this app also shows you all the contacts that are stored on the target phone. It may take some time for the newly added contacts to show up on the dashboard.
The PinPoint feature enables you to locate a person without them knowing. It can help you locate someone with or without GPS turned On?. If their GPS is tuned On then the GPS locations will be shared with you on your dashboard. It shares with you all the places the target person has been in the list as well as the map view.
However, if the GPS is turned Off then you can still find out where the person has been with the help of the WiFi location. Yes, eyeZy can share the location of all the WiFi networks to which the target phone was connected.
One thing I noticed is that it shares the location in only longitude-latitude value when GPS is turned off.
5. Plan Breaker
The Plan Breaker feature of eyeZy is indeed a plan breaker. It shows you all the plans of the target person that they have marked on their phone calendar. If your kids are planning to go to a party without your permission then you can know it in advance.
6. Files Finder
Are you concerned about your kid storing inappropriate photos and videos on their phone? Don’t worry anymore because eyeZy can show you all the stored images and videos on their phone. These can be photos or videos they have captured from their phone, downloaded from the internet, or received from friends over social media.
Besides just seeing the multimedia files you can even download and keep them safe on your device as proof. But I noticed one thing while inspecting this eyeZy feature, if they delete the photo or video just after capturing it then the app can’t record it.
7. Web Magnifier
In this section, you are given the features that can help you track the browsing activities of your kids or partner. It can show you the browser history of the target cell phone.
For experiment purposes, I have also browsed some URLs in the incognito tab of the Chrome browser. And to my surprise, it was able to show incognito search history as well along with the time of the visit and the frequency of the visit i.e. how many times the same page was browsed by the target person.
What impressed me a lot is that it shows which URL was browsed in a regular window and which one in an incognito window. Moreover, it shows the exact URL of the page which is clickable. This means you can yourself visit that page from your device.
It also has a Browser bookmark feature which is supposed to show you all the pages that are saved by the target person as a bookmark. However, when I was assessing this feature it didn’t return any results but I think it will work well on a rooted device.
8. Connection Blocker
Although eyeZy does not have a remote access feature that allows one to remotely access the camera and microphone of the target device as seen on many other spy apps. It does provide you connection blocker feature which remotely blocks websites, WiFi, and apps on the target phone.
To block a website you just have to enter the URL of the page you do not want the target person to visit. You can add as many websites to it as you want but one by one. It may take up to 15 minutes for the command to work properly. Once the command is applied the blocked website will not be able to load on the target phone. If the target person tries to visit a blocked website they will see a blank page like the one below.
I tried opening the blocked page on different browsers and their private windows but once the web page is blocked it can’t be browsed.
Similarly, you can block WiFi with this app as well. All you need to do is click on the Block button next to the name of the WiFi you want to restrict. Again it may take anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes to block a particular WiFi so you need to be a little patient.
In my experience, I found that it can not only block a saved WiFi but also the one to which the target phone is currently connected.
Beside Website and WiFi, eyeZy can also help you block applications on the target phone. All you need to do is to find the app that you want to block and simply click on the Block button in front of its name.
The one thing that irritates me about this feature is that it shows all the apps that are installed on the target phone even the system apps. So, it’s hard to find the app that you want to block. Moreover, there is no search option using which you could find the desired app easily. However, once you find and block an app it won’t open on the target phone. If they try to open a blocked app they will see a black screen as seen below.
9. Magic Alert
This category has 2 features Geofencing and Keyword tracking. The Geofencing feature alerts you whenever the target cell phone enters or leaves a specific location. Whereas the Keyword tracking feature notifies you whenever the target person types a specific word that you have set for tracking.
Although the geofencing feature didn’t work for me, I am quite satisfied with the Keyword alert feature because it worked as promised. You just need to add the keywords to it that you need to be alerted about.
If you enable the email alert then you will also get an email whenever the target person types that word on any of the apps installed on their device.
What About The Customer Support?
I personally liked the eyeZy customer support, they provide chat support which can be initiated from the official website of eyeZy. What is good is that they assign you a chat support executive as soon as possible. You can have a chat with them regarding any issue you face while using or installing eyeZy and they try to solve it asap.
Is eyeZy Detectable?
Don’t worry eyeZy is installed with a fake name so the target person will not know about it. However, eyeZy app icon is not hidden by itself, so you may have to hide it yourself. It’s easy to hide an application icon, just go to App drawer settings and choose the option hide apps and then select the app that you want to hide and the app icon will be hidden.
Besides that, eyeZy app does not cause any major issues in the phone’s performance. Neither does it heat the device nor does it consume a lot of its battery. Hence, the target person will never know that they are being watched using a spy app. As you can see in almost 2 days of installation the app has only consumed 5.6% of the battery.
How Much eyeZy Costs?
After going through the eyeZy review you might be sure by now whether you want to go for it or not. If yes then you must be interested in knowing the pricing of eyeZy.
Unlike other spyware which have multiple pricing plans, eyeZy offers you a single plan. You can get it in monthly, quarterly, or annual subscription.
If you want to use it for one time then the monthly plan is well suited for you which will cost you $47.99/month. However, if you are planning to use it for the long term then the quarterly and yearly plans make more sense. You can get a 3-month and 12-month plan at a cheaper rate of $27.99/month and $9.99/month respectively.
eyeZy Vs uMobix Features & Price Compared
If there is one app that is a neck-to-neck competitor of eyeZy then it has to be uMobix. The pricing of both the apps is similar and so are the features. Although uMobix has some advanced features like remote access to the camera and microphone of the target device. But, those features are still under development. In my experience with uMobix, I found out that these features work sometimes and sometimes don’t.
Also, uMobix does not have the Geofence feature but eyeZy has it. However, the Geofence feature didn’t work for me as you can read from my review above. So, both the apps have their pros and cons. Hence, it’s hard to pick one app between eyeZy and uMobix. That said, you can pick any one of these spy apps and you won’t end up making a bad choice.
Is eyeZy Worth Your Time & Money: Final Verdict
I know eyeZy is not the perfect spy app as some of its features don’t work properly as they should. However, the features that work are sufficient enough to let you spy on someone without them knowing.
With eyeZy, you can read someone’s social media messages, track their location, have a look at their multimedia files, and see their call logs which are more than enough to find out what they are hiding. Also, the pricing of the app is pretty genuine so you can try it at least once. So I would definitely recommend you to go for it.
