KidsGuard Pro Installation On iOS devices
Unlike Android phones, it is not compulsory to have physical access to the target iOS device. For iOS, KidsGuard Pro has two monitoring methods i.e. KidsGuard Pro for iOS and KidsGuard Pro for iCloud.
In KidsGuard Pro for iOS, you need to have physical access to the iPhone for installing KidsGuard Pro.
But what if you don’t want to install any app and want to track the target iPhone remotely? Then you can opt for the iCloud monitoring solution of KidsGuard Pro.
For iCloud monitoring, you will require a couple of things before setting up KidsGuard Pro.
The first thing you’ll need is their iCloud credentials. To monitor the target iPhone/iPad you have to make sure that the iCloud backup is turned on.
Therefore, to monitor an iPhone with KidsGuard Pro you need to make a selection between iOS monitoring and iCloud monitoring.
KidsGuard Pro Features
Before we start with the features, you can get the hang of what all KidsGuard Pro will offer to you in your account and how it will be presented with its live demo. All of the target phone’s data will be available to you remotely in your KidsGuard Pro account.
After signing into your KidsGuard Pro account you will arrive at the Dashboard that is the entry point on the portal.
On the dashboard, you can view Account and Order Info along with the Device Information like Battery Level, GPS, Device Status, etc.
Having information like battery level and GPS can come in handy in case something goes wrong.
Along with the device information on the dashboard you can see Calls, Messages, and Last Known Locations.
Clicking on the Top 8 Calls and Top 8 Messages will reveal calls and messages on the basis of duration and interaction on the target device. So you will get to know with whom your teen is communicating and how much!
With KidsGuard Pro, keeping track of the last known location of your spouse is also possible. Along with location it also updates the visited time as well as the address of the locality. Zooming in and out on the map will reveal more detailed information.
Phone Files Section
On the left side of the portal, you will see the Phone Files tab. Under this, the categories of different file types on the target device are shown i.e. Calls Logs, Messages, Contacts, Browser History are some of them.
Making selection on the list will take you to the desired section from where you’ll get information like a child’s text messages, boyfriend’s call logs, spouse text messages, etc.
1. Call Logs
Are you worried about your teen’s phone calls and want to know with whom they talked, without physically inspecting their phone? if yes, then that’s possible via KidsGuard Pro Call Logs feature.
All the relevant information regarding the calls like name, phone number, type of call (Incoming or Outgoing), duration along with date and time is tracked.
So KidsGuard Pro can take care of your worries regarding the calls of your loved ones. Moreover, deleted call logs are also available for you. Only the call records that are deleted within seconds after the call are not recorded.
Do you suspect somebody with evil intentions talking with your loved ones?
If that’s the case, then take a deep breath and relax! KidsGuard Pro has got you covered.
You can search for a specific contact using the search bar whom you consider as a suspect. Heads-up though, it’s case sensitive i.e. Sam is not the same as sam.
The text message is the most common choice of communication among people. That’s because messages can convey information instantly if we compare it with calling.
Within seconds a message can be transferred that can have a night-out plan, planning of bunking lectures, date night, to name a few.
Therefore most likely your loved one might be typing a message right now. So it’s better to be prepared and catch your teen red-handed who is planning to bunk lectures.
With KidsGuard Pro spying on child’s text messages is possible.
Along with the message, you’ll also get to know the date and time of the message. Clicking on any contact will open the conversations that happened between the two.
As messages are widely used there’s a possibility that you will find numerous messages on your spouse’s phone. Here KidsGuard Pro has provided a Search bar from where you can look out for any particular contact which you suspect.
Just like in the Call Logs, the search bar in messages is also case sensitive.
Have you fooled around your grandparents by changing their contact numbers with different/fake numbers? If yes, seems like you had quite a fun in your childhood!
But as funny as it sounds maybe this trick has been applied to you and you never noticed.
Clever people tend to save someone else’s number with a common contact that can be mutual between both of you. This can convince you that they are talking to a known person. However, the reality is quite different.
So to rein in clever people, smart people like you use KidsGuard Pro!
KidsGuard Pro can show you all the numbers that are associated with a contact name. Along with numbers, email IDs, addresses are also linked to the particular contact.
If your spouse has changed a number pretending as a mutual contact even then you will be easily able to track the changes. Our suggestion to you is to also check all the contacts whether you know them or not.
As there will be various business, formal, informal contacts on the device. With KidsGuard Pro Search feature finding a specific contact is possible.
4. Browser History
The internet is full of information and the thing which may bother you as a guardian is that it can’t identify whether the search is made by a mature person or a kid and the search result will stay the same.
Odds of your teen searching for content that is inappropriate to their age group can be quite high. On top of it when you check their phone for browser history you find nothing!
If that happens with you quite often then put the thoughts to the rest and smile! KidsGuard Pro can do that for you!
Keeping track of browsing history is the forte of KidsGuard Pro. Even if the searches are made in Incognito or Private mode browsers!
Providing information like URL, the title of the website, the number of visits to a particular web-page along with date and time of access is not a problem either!
All drop-down button will let you see data specific to the current day, current month, last month, and last year with just one click!
Do you want to see web history for a particular website? If yes, then today is your lucky day!
In our testing, we wanted to see searches that were made on google.com. KidsGuard Pro presented the search history within seconds.
If actions speak a 1000 words then a photo can explain the whole story! Because a photo expresses emotions and purpose.
Photos that contain explicit content, anger, rage, or violence can bring behavioral changes in teens. So keeping track of photos becomes essential.
With KidsGuard Pro parental control app you can take care of photos on your loved one’s device.
So all the photos that are on the phone be it in internal storage or memory card, everything will be under your supervision!
All the photos will be grouped folder wise.
DCIM is the default folder on Android where you’ll find all the photos taken from the camera. The rest of the folders are pertaining to each app like Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, etc.
Android smartphones can change the photo location to external storage (memory card). Because of which some Android spy apps, can’t monitor the data. KidsGuard Pro has provided a storage folder in which photos on the memory card will be shown.
Hovering over any picture will provide you with a magnifying glass icon. Clicking on it will reveal the photo in full size for better visibility.
When the photo is open in full screen you will find the option to download the picture. This will be very beneficial if you find something that is inappropriate for their age group and needs immediate attention.
In fact, photos shared or received via instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and Telegram are tracked too! The only thing to keep in mind is that the new photos taken or received will be updated via Wi-Fi only.
6. Video Preview
Videos are even more menacing than photos. The reason for saying this is that the videos are broadly shared on social networking apps as well as instant messengers.
Therefore, any video that is floating around might contain information that is in bad taste or explicit content for your teen.
Those videos can change the thought process or affect the foundations of your loved ones. As teens and tweens are generally easy to be misguided they can be a victim of a politically driven video, false and misleading information regarding any particular religion, etc.
So keeping them safe from miscreants is equally important.
Moreover, personal videos can also reveal if your lover is meeting someone unknown and spending quality time with them.
KidsGuard Pro is capable of tracking videos that are on the device, irrespective of the stored location i.e. internal or external storage. You will see small thumbnails on each video.
For your convenience, videos are sorted on a recent to old basis. So the recent ones will be shown at the top while the old ones will be at the bottom.
Each video will have the timestamp from that you can check the arrival time/sent time. With this timestamp, you can get to know about time patterns when these videos made its place on the target device.
7. App Activities
Are you curious to know how much time is being spent by your teen on the phone while doing unproductive things? If yes, then KidsGuard Pro with its App Activities can help you out with this.
App Activities will let you check out the details about the app in use like app name, version, size, installed date, today’s frequency, and today’s screen time.
Today’s frequency and screen time of their device will let you know how many times the app was visited by your loved ones and how much total time they spent on it.
On the basis of this data, you can monitor app(s) and by doing so, you will not be leaving any stone unturned in their protection.
The best part about KidsGuard Pro is that it has a search bar where you can search for any specific app to check its daily frequency and today’s screen time. While searching, keep it in mind that the search bar is case sensitive.
Pressing the All drop-down button will provide you with all the sorting options like a current day, this month, last month and last year.
Keylogger is the most essential feature for any spying app. Whenever any key is pressed on a keyboard it is known as a keystroke. So the keylogger collects or records the keystrokes each time something is typed on a keyboard.
And the specialty of keyloggers is that they work in the background without giving any notifications to the user. By doing so keylogger work as programmed and the user will not recognize that they are being monitored!
Therefore, if your spouse is planning on doing something in your absence or behind your back it will be taken care of with the help of keylogger.
On KidsGuard Pro, the functionally of keylogger is improved way beyond!
KidsGuard Pro keeps tracks of keystrokes on an app basis. For instance, if you want to check out keystrokes made on Google Chrome you have to select Chrome on the left, and then on the right, you’ll find all the keystrokes made on Google Chrome.
Moreover, you can take the benefit of the search bar to look out for a specific word in a particular app. Also, it is case sensitive i.e. A is not a!
Under the Keylogger you will only find native apps like Google Play Store, Calendar, Chrome, Contacts, to name a few.
But we are happy to say that social apps are also well taken care of! But for checking them out you have to go under their specific sections that we will explain later in the Social section of the article.
Calendars are not only for checking the upcoming holidays but also it’s very important for a working professional or someone who keeps everything organized in advance.
Schedules of the day are planned on a calendar beforehand. So if you have access to someone’s calendar then you know how their day is going to be like.
Therefore, monitoring your partner’s calendar can be a valuable and life-saving factor if somethings go sideways.
Most of the spy apps tend to ignore this simple yet important feature and if it matters to you, then KidsGuard Pro makes even more sense for you.
It can come in handy when you want to check your spouse’s work routine and plan to surprise them by a visit in-between their appointments!
Sorting of data on the basis of the current date, current month, last month, and last year is also achieved by pressing the All drop-down button.
Do you know what gives pleasure when you’re not around your loved ones? It’s the update by which you get to know that they have reached home safely and securely.
Being a guardian of a teen we can understand the worries that eat you from the inside when they don’t pick up your calls.
What if we say you can throw away your worries out of the window regarding their whereabouts.
That’s possible with KidsGuard Pro!
KidsGuard Pro Locations can help you know your loved one’s recent locations with date and timestamp.
On the map, you can zoom in and zoom out, pan around for a better view.
Just below the map, you will find other important details like Address, Longitude and Latitude, Location Date And Time, and Map View.
From the Address, you will get to know the area name, Longitude and Latitude will provide you with the precise coordinates for better monitoring.
Map View on KidsGuard Pro is the inclusion of Google Maps for improved location tracking and for the more comprehensive area details.
Geofence is a marked area that according to you is a safe place. Let’s say your house and neighborhood. Next to your neighborhood, there’s an area that seems dodgy to you for the safety of your loved ones. As you are occupied in your life you can’t always keep track of their outdoor activities.
To take care of this, KidsGuard Pro has provided Geofence in location tracking.
When you have set up a safe area you will be notified when your loved ones enter or exit the safe area on the portal as well as Email (if opted).
The notifications give a sense of security and pleasure in knowing that your kid has safely entered the neighborhood or house.
Setting up geofence is very easy and can be set up within minutes. You need to click on Add a geofence (shown in the above screenshot) and you will be required to choose the area radius that you allow for your kid.
If you need to receive the emails regarding your teen’s entry and exit from the safe area, it can be enabled while setting up the geofencing.
Do you need to enable geofence on specific days or times of the day? That can also be achieved using the KidsGuard Pro Geofence feature.
You can enter a Start Time, End Time, and the number of days you want to set up the geofence area limiter.
12. Wi-Fi Logger
Wi-Fi Logger is a very unique measure of tracking. Whenever you’ll connect your device with any Wi-Fi router or hotspots it will generate a session in which the details of the connection are saved but not shown.
KidsGuard Pro Wi-Fi Logger will provide you all the important information like the Name of the device, Start Time, End Time, and Duration.
Along with this information, it will also let you know the location where the Wi-Fi session has been initiated. Clicking on the location link will open the exact address on Google Maps. With that information, you can get to know the unexpected stop that took place and for how long.
Wi-Fi logger on KidsGuard Pro has a search bar where you can look for a particular device i.e. iPhone, Motorola, etc. This search bar is also case sensitive.
Monitoring of calls, messages, contacts, browser, keylogger is the need of the hour. However, having a blind eye towards social media apps used by your loved ones can be a big mistake.
As your teen will be new to social apps, they will not be able to distinguish the good and bad on the internet. Therefore, teens can be an easy target for bad pursuers.
So to safeguard them from something bad to happen, you can track their social apps using KidsGuard Pro!
The basic working of social apps remains the same. As soon as the app is open on the target device you will start receiving the screenshots as well as chats.
Some of the apps that we have tested are WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and Snapchat. So let’s begin the experience!
Monitoring WhatsApp using KidsGuard Pro is very easy and instant. As soon as the app is opened on the target device, you will start receiving screenshots. With the help of the keylogger, you will also be able to track chats!
To get the instant updates you will need to click on the Sync button to check the results.
On clicking the screenshot you will see a full size screenshot on the screen. The name, profile photo, and time of the chat with whom the chat is being done will be clearly shown.
Clicking on the left and right arrow will play a series of screenshots taken while the target was chatting on WhatsApp. On the bottom, you will find a download button. Clicking on it will allow you to download the screenshot if in case you found something inappropriate.
KidsGuard Pro has a case sensitive search bar in WhatsApp that will help you in searching for a specific word.
KidsGuard Pro Facebook monitoring works as good as spying on WhatsApp. Screenshots will be taken anywhere anytime while using the app. Even if your spouse is watching a video, scrolling through feeds, or commenting on a post.
All of this will start happening when your spouse opens Facebook! Just like on WhatsApp, the keylogger is also enabled on Facebook. So if the screenshot misses some text then keylogger will be able to record the keystrokes.
Clicking on the screenshots will reveal a full-screen size image with all the relevant information. Screenshots can be taken while posting a status, writing a comment, or watching stories.
Just the way KidsGuard Pro works on WhatsApp, you can click the download button to download the screenshot if in case something is not right.
All of the photos will be backed up on KidsGuard Pro servers when the target device will connect on Wi-Fi. The reason for doing so is that, if the photos are uploaded via mobile data they might notice the data consumption.
With KidsGuard Pro, monitoring of the safety of your loved ones is in good hands.
Facebook Messenger is a very popular IM (Instant messenger). It allows you to chat and call with anyone on your Facebook friend list. As it’s connected with Facebook, your contact list will be seamless.
So even the people who rarely know your lover can try to have contact with them.
But we’re happy to report that spying on Messenger works equally well as any other social app.
KidsGuard Pro will start pushing updates on the portal as soon as the app is opened.
If your boyfriend is using cellular services then you will only receive the text i.e. written chat. As soon as they’ll connect to Wi-Fi, all the screenshots will be available in no time!
Just like WhatsApp, clicking on any screenshot will open the gallery of screenshots. Pressing the left or right arrow key will open the previous/new pictures.
Pressing the download icon will download the screenshot so that you can catch the cheater red-handed!
Snapchat is a different instant messenger. In Snapchat when someone sends you a message or a story it stays till the person stays in the chat. As soon they leave the chat, it’s automatically deleted.
On top of it, if someone tries to take a screenshot of the chat, the other person will get to know about the screenshot.
Because of these reasons most people use Snapchat for inappropriate use.
KidsGuard Pro has done its homework and has implemented such an amazing feature that everything on Snapchat is monitored without your spouse knowing.
Spying on Snapchat via KidsGuard Pro works seamlessly. It provides screenshots irrespective of what your spouse is doing on Snapchat like chatting, voice/video calls, checking out stories of friends, and celebrities.
With the help of keylogger, all the chats that have taken place are monitored. At the moment they connect to Wi-Fi all the screenshots will be updated.
Clicking on the screenshots will allow you to see the main content of the photo. The screenshot worked like a charm. In the above picture, the screenshot of a chat was taken without any notification to the end-user.
Now even if they leave the chat and the message gets deleted, you will have the evidence with you on your KidsGuard Pro account.
By clicking the download button you can have a copy of the data with yourself. Left and right arrows are provided for convenience so that you can check out all the screenshots that took place.
14. Record Calls
How good it would be if you could hear the conversations of your loved ones with contacts you don’t recognize? Maybe someone is trying to persuade your loved ones in doing something unethical behind your back?
If these questions bother you as a well-wisher then relax and smile because it can be taken care of via KidsGuard Pro Record Calls feature!
All the calls that took place (incoming or outgoing) will be recorded on KidsGuard Pro however it will be synced when the device is connected via Wi-Fi.
As sometimes calls are long they might consume more data if they use cellular services. Therefore, KidsGuard Pro follows the Wi-Fi approach.
By using Wi-Fi, the calls are synced without consuming your loved ones’ cellular internet so that they don’t recognize the data consumption of syncing call recording to your KidsGuard Pro account.
With the call recording, relevant information like name and phone number of the contact, when the call took place, the type of the call (incoming or outgoing), and duration, can be easily known.
Clicking the play icon under the Audio will provide options to play the particular call or press the right arrow to play the next recording. Clicking the left arrow will play the previous recording.
The call recording worked very well. The audio from both ends was clear and understandable. But we felt the audio of the second person could have been improved.
Downloading of the recorded calls was not a problem either. Clicking the Download button will start downloading the calls within seconds.
If you need to check results pertaining to a particular person you can do it with the help of a search bar. The search will only work if you type the exact name.
15. Capture Screenshots
Capture Screenshots will come in handy when you want to know what your spouse is doing on their cell phone currently.
It can be anything i.e. taking calls, texting, swiping through Facebook, checking out Instagram stories, etc.
With KidsGuard Pro the screenshot is taken without giving any hint to the target device. However, the screenshot will be taken when the device is in an unlocked state.
Pressing the Take Screenshots button will snap the screenshot within seconds. And the screenshot will pop up under the day it has been taken. If it doesn’t come within seconds you can always press the Sync button that will force the update.
By hovering the mouse on any photo, you will see a magnifying glass and a download button. Clicking on the magnifying glass will open the photo in full screen. Pressing the download button will download the photo without opening the photo in full screen.
The complete screenshot of the display is taken without missing out on any detail! In the full screen, you will see a download icon on the bottom that will let you keep a copy of the screenshot for future use.
Pressing the left and right arrows will show you the other screenshots that you have taken by pressing the Take Screenshot button.
16. Take Photo
Do you feel your spouse is somewhere else but lying to you about their location? If that’s on your mind then KidsGuard Pro will help you in this too!
Take Photo feature on KidsGuard Pro can utilize the rear camera of your girlfriend’s/boyfriend’s device and will capture a photo without them knowing!
With those photos, you can figure out whether it’s a club or an office!
On the right side, you will see a Shoot button. Pressing it will take a photo using the rear camera. For this feature to work, you need to know a few things.
The phone needs to be in a working state. If the phone is in a bag or pocket (unusable state) then it will also not work.
When you’ll press the Shoot button, within 15 seconds the photo from your loved one’s device will be presented on the portal.
While hovering over the photo you will see a magnifying glass. Clicking on it will reveal the photo in full screen. So you will be able to check their surrounding. As in my case, it’s an office!
On the enlarged image, you will find left and right-pointing arrows from where you can check out all the photos that you have taken.
Here you will also get a download icon that will let you keep a copy of the photo.
17. Data Export
Do you need to download monitored content with just one click? If yes, then Data Export can help you out!
With the Data Export feature, you can download the spied content of your loved ones. All the data in the form of Call Logs, Messages, Contacts, Browser History, Social Apps, etc. can be locally saved with just a few clicks.
Keeping a copy of the complete data can be a lifesaver. If something wrong happens on their website then your data will not be lost.
As in our case, we wanted to check the Calls Log. So in modules, we selected Calls Logs and clicked on the Export button.
A file in CSV format containing the call logs will download in a few seconds.
You can open the file in Excel or notepad on your Windows PC/Mac.
At the beginning of the file, you will find the document structure that will help you in accessing the document easily.
18. Permission Check
To preserve battery and improve smartphone performance, teens usually turn off a few settings that can hinder the performance of a few features, like locations.
Rectifying this error using KidsGuard Pro is very easy. It has a Troubleshooting section from where you’ll get to know any settings that have been disabled for any reason.
In my case, permission to Access Camera was disabled. You can’t simply enable it on from the portal you need to have physical access to the smartphone. Next to the Status, you are provided with a Path that you have to access on the target device and enable the settings that are disabled.
If all the permissions are enabled and you still face errors you can submit an error log from the portal itself.

Review Verdict: Should You Buy KidsGuard Pro For All Your Worries?
As you can make out after reading our KidsGuard review that we’ve written it after performing thorough testing and checking every feature in detail. We strongly believe that KidsGuard Pro is the most appropriate choice for you.
It packs pretty much all the features you could have asked for. From general monitoring like calls, messages, contacts, keyloggers, browser history, photos, everything works flawlessly.
Update within minutes and complete information monitoring make us recommend it to you with flying colors!
The story for social monitoring is even more magnificent. You name it you got it! Most of the popular social apps like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Messenger that we tested worked great.
You will get complete protection for your loved ones, we can vouch for it! As soon as the app is up and running you will start receiving the updates within seconds in the form of text as well as screenshots.
Every company aims to be having perfect software. But in the case of KidsGuard Pro, we can say that they are almost there! In our testing, we found a few things that need to be worked upon.
At first, the video playback was not working. Even after trying it for a few days it never worked. It was able to detect new videos that were shared via social apps however we were not able to play them.
Secondly, it was the search bar. It was sometimes showing results of a search performed but most of the time it was simply ignoring the result even though the word was present there.
Though these are not big things but still if they could fix these issues then KidsGuard Pro can turn out to be the best spying software.
