WinSpy is an all-in-one application that keeps track of both Android smartphones, tablets and Windows PC’s including laptops. It works with both rooted andnon-rooted Android devices and invisibly captures information such as chats, GPS location, photos, videos, and even recods phone calls made to and from the Android device. The software also works as a windows keylogger. More than that it can be set to record from the laptop’s microphone, webcam and more.

What makes the application so great is its value. The bundle is priced at $39.95 and there is no subscription. Even better it can be used to monitor up to two Android devices and 10 PC’s, all in one convenient cloud based reporting dashboard that can be accessed anywhere remotely.

Spyzie has features for non-rooted Android devices that other application developers do not. It is built from the ground up for non-rooted smartphones, so stealth, keylogging and password capture are just a few of the features you can expect. It is also the lowest priced spy app to include a keylogger as neither Highster nor WinSpy’s applications offer keystroke logging.

GPS tracking of the Android phone as well as call recording, and just about every social network and chat application you can imagine are what sets Spyzie apart.
It outclasses giants such as mSpy and can boast competing directly with FlexiSpy which is the flagship application in this industry.

The big difference betweeen the two applications is that Spyzie is so much cheaper. Users can buy a whole year at once so that there is no subscription, and that rounds out to about $8.00 a month.

Not to sound repetitive but if your installing to a non-rooted Android . . . this is it. There is nothing else. There is no better non-root solution for Android.

[zl_tabs_cell title=”WHAT IS AN ANDROID KEYLOGGER?” left_icon=”fa-android” right_icon=”fa-bolt”] An Android keylogger is a surveillance application that monitors an Android phone or tablet. While there are several different types all Android keyloggers share the following characteristics:

1) Capture all keystrokes input on the Android device
2) Captures password input into the Android device
3) Keyloggers for Android are installed locally
4) Keylogger legality is a grey area depending on location as well as usage and “Further Information Regarding Keylogger Applications


[zl_tabs_cell title=”ARE ANDROID KEYLOGGERS LEGAL?” left_icon=”fa-android” right_icon=”fa-bolt”]The short answer is yes, depending on which country the keylogger is being used in. For the following questions and answer we will assume these questions refer to a typical United States Consumer.

Keyloggers in the U.S. are 100% legal in the U.S. depending on how they are used. Monitoring your child’s activity is legal in most states. Monitoring employee productivity is legal although in certain states it should be disclosed. Here is a recent article featured on AOL about new employer rights regarding employee monitoring

A keylogger can be illegal when it is used for criminal purposes. Stealing information and personal financial information. Prospective users are encouraged to check all Federal, state and local laws prior to using or installing a keylogger.

Employee Monitoring in the Workplace
Why FCC Rules do not Affect Privacy
[zl_tabs_cell title=”WHO USES A KEYLOGGER?” left_icon=”fa-android” right_icon=”fa-bolt”] There are a number reasons to use keyloggers. Keyloggers work very similar to a cloud and in the event of a system crash a quality keylogger will have access to all sensitive data including passwords; while more recent keyloggers can provide entire FTP access to a crashed server or computer.

Employee and parental monitoring is another valid use of both PC and Android keyloggers. Most states in the U.S. allow employers to monitor their employees via mobile and desktop devices. Sometime only those provided by the company, and sometimes their own personal devices.

Parents can often also monitor their minor children’s Android device and personal computers. This has become more and more important as bullying has migrated to the virtual world and can often be difficult if not impossible to stop.

This has proven to increase employee productivity and reduce downtime. While it is not possible to go over employer laws for each state, in general managers most commonly have their prospective employees sign a “no expectation of privacy” statement.

This is not intended as legal advice and prospective keylogger users should consult the appropriate attorney/s for their own federal, state and local laws that may pertain to their use. [/zl_tabs_cell]

[zl_tabs_cell title=”HOW CAN I DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE ANDROID PHONE IS ROOTED?” left_icon=”fa-bell” right_icon=”fa-bolt”]By default, newer Android devices are non-rooted. If you have not gone through the Android rooting process of creating a SuperUser (SU) then the Android device is not-rooted.

If you are uncertain whether or not the device has been rooted there are a few fast and free applications that will let you know instantly:

The Top 3 Google Play Store Apps for Determining Whether an Android device is rooted or not:

1) Root Checker: Currently the top rated application for determining the status of an Android phone or tablet. Root Checker boasts having been installed on over 10 million Android devices and a simple single button “Check for Root” option that will scan for SuperUsers and SU binary.

2) Root Checker Pro: A slightly more advanced version of the original Root Checker listed above. The Root Checker Pro not only checks for rooting in a single tap, but performs the standard SafetyNet audit. SafetyNet emulates the platform that checks for rooting prior to initializing an Android application. For example, a rooted Android phone will not be able to run applications such as Pokemon or even SnapChat because these apps will not run on rooted Android phones unless the root has been “hidden”.

3) RootChecker for SuperUser:Slightly different than the above two options the RootChecker for SuperUser checks for custom ROM applications and flashing. It has no advertisements and is developed by some of Google Play’s top developers. This application is updated more frequently than the above two and is recommended if the other Root Checker’s software road map appears to have not been updated for some time.[/zl_tabs_cell]

[zl_tabs_cell title=”WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ROOTED AND NON ROOTED INSTALLATIONS?” left_icon=”fa-android” right_icon=”fa-bolt”]

[/zl_tabs_cell] When considering spy applications for Android it is important to remember that features such as spying on social networks and chat applications only work on rooted Android devices. This includes mSpy, FlexiSpy, WinSpy and every other application designed to monitor an Android’s activity.

If you are uncertain what rooting is or whether or not the Android has been rooted, you can rest assured that it is a non-rooted Android phone. This is because it’s not possible to purchase a rooted Android, and the process of rooting the Android smartphone can be fairly complex and time consuming.

For this reason it is crucial to choose an Android application that contains a keylogger. The keylogger will perform whether or not the device is rooted and ensure at the very least that all outgoing messages and passwords are captured.

Additionally, Google Play’s terms of service do not allow for keylogging applications unless the application notifies the user they are being monitored every time they turn on the Android phone.

For this reason we will first list the top keylogging spy applications for Android that contain keyloggers that work with non-rooted Android phones as well as spy apps that offer remote rooting directly from the developer. Rooting, has become very complex as we ourselves spent four hours this week trying to root an old 2012 Samsung running Lollipop. You can always root at a later time, and until a better solution exists we will stick with keyloggers that work with any Android.[/zl_tabs_reload]
