So let’s start with the review of the well-known monitoring app called Spyic. And see how it works, what all features it provides, what is the pricing, and everything else related to it.

Let’s begin the review by discussing the compatibility of the app first because it can only benefit you if the app supports the operating system of the target device.
A large portion of total cell phone users in the world is Android users. So not providing service for Android can be a big mistake.
But this is not the case with Spyic. The monitoring app service can track all the Android devices running on version 4 and above.
The app claims to support all the iOS devices running iOS 7 and above without jailbreaking the device.
But we recommend that you should not go for the non jailbroken solution.
According to us, if an iOS device is not jailbroken, it’s not possible to monitor it due to the new rules and 2FA settings in Apple devices. Or at least it will be difficult for you to monitor the device properly.
So if the target owns an iOS device, make sure it’s jailbroken, if you want its proper and complete monitoring.
Spyic Installation And Setup
For the successful installation of a monitoring app, you will need up to 5 minutes of physical access to the target phone. And the total time of setup including both the devices will take approximately 15-20 minutes.
Once the installation is complete and you start to receive the data, you don’t need the physical access of the device again and you can monitor everything on the target phone remotely.
Setting Up Of Parents/Your Device
The setup on the child/spouse phone is to be done once you complete the setup on your device. So let’s see what all needs to be done on your device.
1. Go to the official Spyic website and click on the Sign Up Free option at the top-right side.
2. Now create your account with Spyic by providing your email address and setting up a password and then clicking on Sign up free.
3. Next, you have to select the type of operating system that the target person owns, i.e Android, or iOS.
4. After that, you have to purchase a plan that suits your budget and serves your purpose.
5. It’s time to provide some basic information related to the kid. This includes the Teen’s name, Teen’s age, and type of Mobile device. Finally, click on Proceed.
Your device is all ready to track the target phone. And now it’s time to set up the target device.

Disabling Play Protect On The Target Phone Before Installation Of Spyic App
Before starting with the installation of the app, first, we need to turn off the Play Protect in Play Store for the uninterrupted installation of the software.
1. Open the Play Store and tap on the hamburger icon at the top.
2. Select the Play Protect option.
3. Tap on the gear icon at the top-right side.
4. Finally, toggle off the button that says Scan apps with Play Protect and confirm by tapping on TURN OFF.
With this, Play Protect is successfully disabled and now the target device is all set to install the apps from unknown sources.
Steps To Install Spyic On Target Phone
1. Head to the app installation page of the Spyic app (viptrack.pro) and Slide right to download the app.
2. On the next page, Spyic will show you all the things it will get access to on the target phone. Confirm the installation by tapping on INSTALL.
4. SIGN IN to your Spyic account using the same email id and password that was used to register with Spyic on your device earlier.
5. In order to monitor the target device completely, some permissions need to be given. These permissions include access to contacts, access to call history, SMS records, and calendar.
6. After that, you have to enable “System Service” in autostart. Do this by tapping on PROCEED TO SETTINGS, and then toggling on the button in front of System Service.
7. Finally, after giving all the permissions, the target device is all set to get monitored. On the last page, you’ll get an option to either Hide the application or show the icon on the screen.
We recommend you select the option to hide the Spyic app for a better and uninterrupted monitoring experience. Finally, tap on START MONITORING.
Now go back to the Spyic website and log in if you’re not already to open the Spyic portal where you’ll get all the updates from the target phone remotely.
Spyic dashboard is a place where you will get the recent updates from the main apps of the phone along with a little information about the phone.
On the top, you can see some basic information about the phone like the device model and the OS version.
Below the device information section will be the list of most calling contacts. Here you will see the name of the contacts along with their phone number that your child was mostly in contact with.
Adjacent to it will be the location section where you’ll get the updates about the recent location of the target cell phone.
Contacts with most messages can also be seen along with the number of activities on the different sections on the phone.
Have you ever noticed your child or spouse hastily disconnecting their ongoing call the moment you enter the room, and their face getting pale white in terror?
Or maybe noticed them rejecting a call again and again or going somewhere else to attend the call?
Well, these are not some good signs and there’s a need to safeguard your loved ones from the unknown people who might try to harm them.
But directly asking them about the person on the call can be a little rude and your spouse will not like the fact that you suspect them.
So it’s better to make sure first that are they really in contact with someone you don’t know about? And most importantly, who’s the person they want to hide from you.
This can be done by getting access to their call logs and Spyic helps you get your hands on it.
When you click on Calls, you get to see the list of all the people whom the target person has come in contact with.
The contact name, phone number, duration of the call, date, time, and the type of call (outgoing/incoming) is visible in the calls section.
It’s possible that you don’t find anything suspicious in the call logs. But still, you have some doubt and you believe that they are in contact with someone they shouldn’t be.
The Contacts feature of Spyic will help you out here. The feature provides the list of all the contacts saved on the target cell phone.
You can just scroll down and check all the contacts page by page.
Along with the phone number, the number of emails that your spouse received from that person and the number of times they were together on the call can be seen as well.
Even after the introduction of instant messaging apps like WhatsApp, Hike, and WeChat, Messages app is still a popular way of texting people.
So, if you think your employee might be leaking some business-related information, you can’t afford to leave the Messages app without checking.
Spyic brilliantly extracts all the previous as well as upcoming messages from the employee cell phone.
When you click on Messages, the personal contacts, telecom companies, or banks, etc. who have sent the message to the target smartphone appear on the left-hand side.
When you click on any particular contact, all the conversations appear on the right-hand side.
The time and date when a particular message was sent or received can be seen as well.
The location feature is supposed to take care of your loved ones by tracking their location 24/7 and updating you about it.
This feature can be a great help in knowing who your spouse meets and love spending time with.
But to our surprise, this feature didn’t work at all for us during our testing. No updates, no location, nothing.
5. Browser History
This feature is not an option to have, but a necessity when your motive of monitoring is solely related to kids.
If works properly, this feature can extract all the queries/searches that your child makes and websites visited on the internet.
But unfortunately, this feature also didn’t work for us.
Checking the photos relaxing in the gallery of the target device is absolutely necessary, especially in the case of teenagers and tweens.
You might let the cat out of the bag and see some adult or intolerable photos on their device.
The screenshots, photos taken with the camera, received from others, and all other photos will appear in the Photos section.
The date on which that photo was received, clicked, or made its place in the device can be seen as well.
The photo that appears on the portal is very small. It’s difficult to see the actual content of the image and it’s not possible to open it.
But it’s possible to download the photo by tapping on the download icon. After downloading it, you can easily open the image and see it clearly.
7. Video Preview
Similar to photos, there are high chances that some unacceptable videos are also present on the teen’s phone.
These videos can be anything related to porn, drugs, political issues, animal abuse, or anything that can leave an adverse effect on the kid’s mind.
So these things should simply stay away from the child.
Under the Video Preview section, all the videos present in the target device right now will appear.
Similar to photos, you cannot open the videos as well. And a download icon is given with every video.
But it was really disappointing that after you click on the download icon, the thumbnail of that video opens on the browser and the video doesn’t get downloaded.
8. Social Apps
Tracking of the target person can never be complete without getting access to their social media accounts.
Be it an adult or a teenager, almost everyone is present on WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Telegram, and other social apps.
So if you suspect that your lover is having an affair, social media is a place where you can definitely catch them red-handed.
Spyic lets its users monitor Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, Tinder, Snapchat, Tumblr, Kik, and many other social media platforms.
But it doesn’t work as flawlessly as it sounds. For most of the social media apps that we tested, we didn’t get the messages that the other user was sending, except for the case of Messenger.
In messenger, we were also getting the messages sent by the other user.
In the case of other social media apps, only the messages that were sent from your lover/kid’s side were visible. And sometimes even the messages from our side were not visible as well.
It was seen that Spyic extracts the text available on the screen be it chat, username, or any other thing.
You can see in the below WhatsApp monitoring screenshot from the Spyic portal that how Spyic even copied the default text on the chat screen. WhatsApp’s Type a message text can be seen on the portal as it was sent by the user. Similar is the case with the contact name Daksh2.
Keylogger is a boon for the parents who want to know what all their child types using their device.
The software extracts the keystrokes that the kid performs on various platforms. These platforms include social media apps, websites, retail apps like Amazon, and so on.
After you install Spyic on the target device, you get access to most of the things that the target types using the keypad.
Spyic keylogger works amazingly, but still, there are little flaws that the user might not like.
Other than the words that user types with the keyboard, the keylogger also captures the words available on the phone screen.
Other than that, if the user is typing some numbers with the keyboard, those numbers will get reflected on the portal. But along with the numbers, the alphabetical expression of those numbers can be seen as well.
These things are of no use, in fact, it ends up with the stuffing of the Keylogger section of the portal with unnecessary words.
10. Calendar, SIM Card, And Applications
Other important features of Spyic include access to the phone’s calendar, applications, and SIM card details.
The calendar feature shows all the events and dates that the user has saved. These events can be anything related to birthday, date, traveling, anniversary, and so on.
So if you ever get curious that what all dates matter to your boyfriend or girlfriend, just have a look at the Calendars feature of Spyic.
SIM Card feature simply gives basic information about the SIM card in the target device. This information includes the SIM company name, MNC, MCC, and IMEI number.
If you want to get the notification about the SIM change, just provide your email address in the SIM Card Alert section.
The next time your employee or your brat changes the SIM card you’ll get a notification on this email address.
Play Store has an abundance of apps that are not at all ok for your child to know about. These apps are filled with adult stuff, brutality, or other stuff.
So the Applications tab lets you know, which apps are installed on the kid’s phone.
With this, the list of Spyic features comes to an end.
You have three plans to choose from for both Android and iOS devices. And all the Spyic plans are available without rooting and jailbreaking.
The three plans for Android go with the name Basic, Premium, and Family.
The Basic plan can be brought for $39.99/month for one device. If you choose the 3 months or 12 months plan, you can save a lot of money.
The next one is the Premium plan with the one-month license for one device at $49.99. Choose the 3 months or 12 months plan for some savings.
The difference in the Basic and Premium plan is that you get access to more features in the Premium plan.
Finally, the Family plan with a one-month subscription for 3 devices at $69.99. Similar to the other two plans, you can opt for 3 months and 12 months plan.
The three plans in iOS come with the name, Premium, Family, and Business.
The Premium plan can be brought for $49.99/month for one device, Family plan for $99.99/month for 5 devices, and similarly the Business plan for $399.99/month for 25 devices.
In order to save some bucks go for the 3 months or 12 months plan.
Spyic Review Final Words – Is Spyic The Best Option?
When it comes to the safety of your loved ones, taking the risk can never be an option. So you need to have the best resource in your hand.
Now the question arises, is Spyic the best monitoring app at this price? Well, to be honest, Spyic works amazingly for some features but it certainly has some issues.
If you are not in favor of rooting the target device then you can go for Spyic but if you can root your Android device then we recommend FlexiSpy.
FlexiSPY is remarkably good when it comes to accuracy, just the downside of the app is that when it comes to social monitoring, you can only monitor WhatsApp on the non-rooted device.
But if you root the target Android device, other social media platforms become accessible as well.
So if you can root the device then FlexiSPY is a better choice otherwise you can safely go with Spyic.
