FlexiSPY Review

Monitor cell phone locations and track SMS with Flexispy.

What Is FlexiSPY?

Security is becoming a more and more critical issue every day, and at the same time, it looks like advances in technology are typically in favor of those trying to hide secrets. There are many cases where a person would be legitimately concerned about the activities of someone else, be it their spouse, employee, or child, and it often feels like there’s nothing we can do to gain control of those situations. That’s led to the development of a whole new market for security applications that can give a person a little peace of mind by allowing them to track someone’s activities remotely.

FlexiSPY is a comprehensive device monitoring suite that comes with a variety of features straight out of the box and can be integrated into a variety of environments with a minimal amount of hassle. The program’s ease of use and its rich feature set have made it a popular choice on the market recently, and it’s one of the most frequently recommended applications of its type for a variety of reasons. While it does have a few quirks that might take some time to get used to, it’s one of the more adequate packages on the current market.

What Can FlexiSPY Be Used for?

The applications of FlexiSPY are pretty much limitless as far as tracking is concerned. The tool is very well developed in multiple aspects, and can easily be applied to more casual situations – like checking up on what your kids are doing – to more serious, professional ones, such as figuring out if your employees are using their company time appropriately.

The only true limitation here is that you’ll need physical access to the target device for a brief amount of time, but after the initial setup is done, you’ll have pretty much complete control over how you’re going to monitor the other party.

Another popular user group are people going through trouble with their significant others where trust is a major issue – if you’re not sure what’s going on behind the fences, FlexiSPY can shed some light on the situation and give you some leverage on how to proceed. Of course, it might not resolve the situation completely, especially when it comes to crafty people who’re purposefully trying to evade you, but it should still help you figure out if something is truly wrong that would warrant additional investigating.

How Does FlexiSPY Work?

Initial setup of the application is very simple and doesn’t take too long, although you should keep in mind that it comes with certain prerequisites for iOS and Symbian devices. For iOS, you’re going to have to jailbreak the device, something which the user will certainly notice. If you’re lucky enough to already be dealing with a jailbroken device, that’s not going to be a concern – but otherwise, you might have to get creative to ensure that you’ll have the kind of access necessary to complete the installation. As for Symbian, you should check to make sure that the device’s OS version is supported.

Once the initial installation is complete, you’ll be able to track the device remotely from another device of your choice. You’ll have access to pretty much everything that’s going on from one day to the next, although there might be some limitations depending on the specific OS and version you’re using. Check in advance to make sure that the type of tracking and capturing that you’re interested in will be explicitly supported on the device that you want to follow, and get in touch with the company’s support staff if you’re not sure about any of the features listed.

Core Features of FlexiSPY

Text message tracking

You can easily find out who the other person is talking to on a regular basis by tracking both incoming and outgoing messages. You can even record a history of all messages that have gone through the device, allowing you to recover lost ones even in case the user has deleted them. This can be a huge advantage against someone trying to conceal their tracks, as even if they know that an application like FlexiSPY has been deployed on their device, they still would not be able to circumvent all of its effects easily.

Monitor incoming & outgoing calls

The same can be said for all voice communication going through the device. Calls can be monitored, and you will know when the person is contacting someone you might have a specific interest in. Additionally, the call history of the device can be recovered even in cases where the user has taken steps to conceal it, making it very easy to track what they are doing on a regular basis without needing too much personal interaction. The app can even track Skype and other similar applications.

Website monitoring/blocking

Worried that the person might visit certain websites that you don’t agree with? That’s another problem FlexiSPY can address reasonably well. This goes beyond what you can accomplish with various browser plug-ins and similar tools that perform their blocking on a basic application level, and you can completely prevent the person from visiting any sites you might find questionable, along with getting alerted when they do. Keep in mind that in most cases, it might be a smarter move to keep their access open so you can gather more information.

Read e-mails

Another action made very easy with the use of FlexiSPY is accessing the e-mails of the target device. It doesn’t matter what service they’re using or how many accounts they might have, getting into their e-mails is as easy as making a few clicks. As with regular text messages, you can also access e-mails that have been deleted or are otherwise no longer available, although this might be slightly limited by the specific functionality of the mail provider involved. In most cases, you should have almost complete access to the entire mailbox of the person though.

Listen to live calls

Sometimes, you might want to listen in on a conversation more closely to find out specific details. This is another popular feature of FlexiSPY, and a major reason for many users in the commercial sector to love the application. Keep in mind that you’ll need a reliable Internet connection to ensure that you’ll get every detail, and that the call quality won’t be compromised at crucial moments. If all else fails, you can still make use of the call recording functionality to ensure that you’re capturing the conversations that matter the most. Exactly how deep you’ll be able to record depends on the specific device that you’re targeting.

Take camera pictures

Worried that the device’s user might be lying about their whereabouts and want some discreet proof? It’s not rare to get a message from an employee claiming they’re too sick to come to work, but if their camera shows them at the nearby beach, this could significantly change the context of the next conversation you have with them. And the best part is, the person using the phone doesn’t even have to get alerted that you’re taking pictures with it, allowing you to organize your proof and meet them with something solid that you can have an actual discussion about.

Spoof text messages

If you want to take things one step further, FlexiSPY can even allow you to pretend that you’re someone else when sending messages to the device. See how the user reacts upon receiving a specific message, and figure out their next steps with the rest of the tracking mechanisms built into the application. You can do this as often as you like, and FlexiSPY even supports a variety of messaging tools and protocols, giving you even more freedom in how you want to approach the situation and which channels you’re going to utilize.

Control device status

Turn it on and off, reset it, pretend that there’s a software issue and it has to shut down – it’s all very easy with FlexiSPY, and it’s impressive how far the developers of the application have gone in giving you control in this area. Some features might be limited by the operating system of the device and you may generally get more success with Android than iOS, but as long as you can get your hands on a jailbroken iPhone, this will make things a lot easier. Performing the procedure yourself is a bit tricky and a risky venture if it’s your first time, so it’s probably not the best idea.

Filter messages

Want to make sure that the target device doesn’t receive messages from a specific sender? Or that you’re alerted as soon as a message from someone particular arrives? We didn’t find any issue with any of those procedures integrated into FlexiSPY, and the tool actually goes quite far in ensuring that you can keep a close eye on the communication of the user. The only potential problem here would be if they’re using a more obscure messaging application that’s not supported by default, but even in that case, make sure to drop a line to the support staff – they’re quite friendly in addressing such issues.

App integration

The developers of FlexiSPY have clearly put a lot of effort into making the utility work well with a variety of different, commonly used apps. You’ll be able to follow communications on a varied range of channels with ease, and you can easily add and remove tracking for specific applications with just a few clicks. Best of all, you can do this all remotely from a location where the device’s user cannot see your actions, allowing you to covertly configure it to your liking at any point in time. Advanced Features of FlexiSPY


Record all keystrokes the user enters into the device, either in a specific application or in the entire operating system. You’re able to filter different apps that you want tracked if the list is larger than just one, and you can easily add and remove additional ones at a later stage. FlexiSPY also organizes the list of recorded keystrokes accordingly, giving you a quick overview of what the person’s activity has been in specific apps. Keep in mind that this might reveal account passwords which could be illegal to use in specific jurisdictions without the explicit approval of the user – but simply observing them is not.

View Target Device Media

It’s surprisingly not rare for employees to use their company-issued devices for activities that don’t represent the company’s image appropriately, and there have even been incidents of employees caught with dirty pictures on their phones. With one look at the videos and pictures folders, you can quickly see what each device owner is up to, and you can take actions accordingly if you find anything out of the usual. As with the above features, the user doesn’t even have to get notified about your actions until you’re ready to confront them.

GEO Fencing

Whether you have an interest in the device’s activities in a specific geographic area, or you want to limit certain apps to only be used in that place, you can easily do that with the help of the built-in GEO fencing features. Just make sure that you define the area correctly, as the app’s design is prone to letting you fence off a larger area than necessary if you’re not at the right zoom level. Other than that, you should find it really easy to ensure that you’re restricting your tracking within your specified bounds.

Monitor Instant Messaging Apps

There are so many IM apps these days, and it’s hard to keep track of all of them – and new ones keep coming out on a pretty much daily basis. Thankfully, the developers of FlexiSPY are well-prepared for that, as they have a long, constantly updated list of supported apps that can be tracked in detail. From standard ones like Messenger and Viber, to Tinder, QQ and Hike. New ones are added on a regular basis, so it’s worth checking their website if the one you’re interested in is not listed there yet.

Monitor & Control Access to Installed Applications

If you’re concerned that the device might be used for applications that you don’t agree with, you can easily prevent them from being installed with a few clicks. Additionally, you can uninstall any apps that might not be appropriate for what the user is supposed to be doing, and you can easily keep the app list filtered on a regular basis. On the other hand, you can install specific apps yourself, potentially giving you even more control over the device in case you want some functionality that’s not provided by default.

Remote SMS Commands

Control the device from afar even when you don’t have your main control panel with you! It’s as easy as sending a few predefined text messages to the target phone, which will be intercepted by FlexiSPY and will trigger specific actions within it. The user won’t be notified that the messages have been received in any way, and you can use this as often as you like to trigger specific actions on their device. This can be particularly useful when trying to provoke someone when you have suspicion that they might be up to something, but have been unable to prove it until then.

App Activity

Check what the user is doing in each specific app in more detail than you could imagine. Gather information about the usage history of the app, when it was installed and uninstalled (if it’s happened multiple times), what features they’ve used in particular, and so on. With certain apps – like Tinder – this can reveal a lot about the user themselves, and that’s likely what you’re going to be looking for in most cases. Keep in mind that some specific features might be a bit too obscure for FlexiSPY to read reliably, but most should be easy to figure out.

SIM Change Alert

Changing SIM cards too often is rarely a good sign, especially if you’re not aware of any additional ones in the first place. While there are some external methods to check if the user is using a different SIM card in that specific device, they’re not reliable in most cases. What FlexiSPY does is a much better option if you want to be alerted of a SIM change in a timely manner, especially if you want to receive additional details about the card that was inserted.

Hide Device Modifications

If you’ve done something like jailbreak the device, you might not want the user to see that this is the case. Even if they’re not very tech savvy, this could still alert them that something is up, making them more suspicious of how they are using the device, and ultimately ruining your goals. FlexiSPY allows you to hide various kinds of OS modifications, not just jailbreak but also changes to Android and other popular operating systems with ease.

Task Manager Stealth

You’ll most likely not want FlexiSPY to be visible in the device’s task manager, and the app comes with built-in functionality to hide its presence. Make sure that you read through the documentation in detail if you intend to use that though, as you don’t want to configure it incorrectly and end up exposing your activities to a user that should not be aware of them in the first place! Once FlexiSPY is uncovered, the user could potentially do a lot with the app to mess with its functionality, so be alert.

FlexiSPY – Packages and Pricing

FlexiSPY is offered through a subscription model, billable in different installments – monthly, quarterly, or yearly. There are two main packages offered for those who want to purchase the tool, “Premium” and “Extreme”. And while the Extreme version does cost significantly more than Premium, it comes packed full of additional features that more than justify the extra price. It’s worth noting that FlexiSPY is already one of the better developed tools on this market, and the features found in the Extreme package are often unique to it specifically and can’t be found elsewhere. Another important note to make is that the Extreme package can only be bought for a minimum of 3 months, it doesn’t have a 1-month subscription model like the standard one. However, given the nature of the extra features you’ll get by purchasing the higher level, you’ll typically want to use them for a longer period of time in the first place, making this completely sensible. Plus, the kind of support you’ll get from the developers will more than justify any amount of money you have to spend on the tool in case you run into issues with it, though that shouldn’t happen often.

Pros and Cons of FlexiSPY


  • Easy to setup and use
  • Covert and discreet, doesn’t alert the user of its presence
  • Supports a variety of operating systems and devices by default
  • Doesn’t drag down the system’s overall performance
  • Great support, responsive and knowledgeable about their product
  • New features and support for additional applications get added on a regular basis


  • May not work on older or less powerful devices
  • Use of certain features may require specific knowledge of local laws and regulations to stay safe
  • More advanced features locked behind a costlier subscription

FlexiSPY – Compatible Devices and System Requirements

All major mobile and desktop operating systems are supported, and the application can easily run on less powerful devices, although there are some exceptions in this range of the market. You’ll actually want to familiarize yourself with this aspect specifically before investing into FlexiSPY to avoid disappointment, as it might turn out that you’re unable to deploy it on the specific device that you might be planning to target. Android, iOS, and even Symbian and BlackBerry are all supported in various capacities. The most important point is that you will have to jailbreak iOS devices to make them compatible with FlexiSPY, as otherwise the tool won’t have access to the parts of the operating system that it needs in order to do its job. Some specific Android devices may also require additional privileges before you can properly use FlexiSPY on them, but the developers of the application are very patient and have prepared a long list of guides that can take you through the whole process relatively easily. If you’re not sure about how to proceed, just head over to their support page and they should be able to guide you through the whole process from start to finish.

Payment Methods

All major payment methods are supported by default. You can use a credit card – Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Discover – or you can pay through PayPal. Wire transfers are supported directly as well, although it might take longer to process your payment if you go with this method. You can even pay in Bitcoin, which is becoming a more and more popular solution among many site owners across the board these days, so it’s not surprising to see its presence here as well. If your payment method is not supported – which should rarely happen – just contact their support and they should be able to sort things out for you.

How Do I Get FlexiSPY?

The application is distributed directly at the website of its developers, and it just takes a few clicks to purchase it and start downloading it. Make sure that you only trust the original developers in this regard, as the Internet is full of fakes that will do you more harm than good by loading various viruses on your computer. Be especially wary of any offers claiming that they can get you a copy of FlexiSPY for free – unless they’re coming straight from the original developers, this is most likely a scam that you should stay far away from.

How Reliable Is FlexiSPY?

The reliability of FlexiSPY is one of the main selling points of the tool, and you’ll hardly be able to find a situation where it fails to perform according to specifications. That is, of course, as long as you pay attention to the configuration and make sure to stay within reasonable limits when using it. Some users have reported crashes and other similar issues, but this usually seems to boil down to using the tool improperly, overloading the user’s device by constantly making requests to a certain website, and so on. If you keep a smart approach to your use of FlexiSPY, it should be a smooth and simple experience.

Installation and Setup of FlexiSPY

Installation is a simple process that’s assisted by a very comprehensive installation guide, including information on how to get FlexiSPY on the device you’re targeting. You should just follow the instructions once downloading the tool. We found the overall quality of the purchase and setup procedures to be excellent, and the developers have clearly put a lot of thought into making FlexiSPY work right out of the box, unlike other tools on the market which may require some additional work on your end.

Any issues that come up during the installation process can be handled very easily and professionally by the support representatives of the company as well, and it’s very easy to get in touch with them and get started in dealing with any specific problem that you might have encountered. That’s not to say that this will happen frequently – quite on the contrary, we noticed that the times when we needed to get in touch with support personnel were pretty much nonexistent.


Will the Phone’s Owner Know It’s Installed?

One of the main selling points of FlexiSPY is that the app conceals its presence very well, and that should not be a concern for you if you want to remain hidden. As long as you follow the guidelines of the developers, you should be able to mask it completely, and ensure that you can keep an eye on the person you’re following without exposing yourself in any way. And thanks to the intuitive controls of the application, you can easily disable it in case you decide that you want to stay extra hidden for a little while.

Can FlexiSPY Monitor Multiple Devices?

You can use FlexiSPY to monitor several devices at once, and the control center makes it very easy to gather information on all of them simultaneously, even organizing it in categories to make things more intuitive for you. Just keep in mind that your own attention might be too limited to allow you to focus effectively on multiple different devices at once like that, and you should constrain your activities within some reasonable limits to stay safe. After all, you probably don’t really need to track every single device the user owns, more like just their main one.

Will FlexiSPY Work Anywhere in the World?

There are no regional restrictions on how you can use FlexiSPY, and as long as you can connect to the target device through some Internet connection, you should be fine. Keep in mind that different countries have different regulations on what you can do with an application like this though, so it might be wise to familiarize yourself with how things work in the specific country you’re planning to use it in before taking things any step further. It should be relatively easy to find out all you need to know in this regard through a little online research though, so don’t worry about that.

How Do I Uninstall FlexiSPY?

The uninstallation procedure is very simple and streamlined, just like the rest of the application’s features. You’ll just have to click a few buttons and FlexiSPY will be removed completely, leaving no traces of its presence on the original device. The same goes for the control panel that you use on your end, and you’ll be able to completely get rid of anything related to FlexiSPY with minimal hassle as soon as you decide that the application is no longer necessary. Although, in most cases, it might make sense to leave it running a bit longer just to make absolutely sure.

Is It Legal to Use FlexiSPY?

We already touched on this briefly above, and we’ve covered it in even more detail below, but the important point to make is that FlexiSPY by itself is a completely legal tool. Some countries may have limitations on how you can use it – for example, in Germany, you’re generally not allowed to monitor the activities of your employees directly, but you can still look up logs and similar data. There is a lot of information about this online, and it’s a smart idea to familiarize yourself with it before taking the use of the app any step further.

Will FlexiSPY Conflict with Other Apps?

Depending on how much you’re using FlexiSPY and what exactly you’re doing with it, it’s possible that it might occasionally run into a conflict with another app on the device, but the risk for that seems to be minimal. FlexiSPY’s developers seem to be paying a lot of attention to making the app compatible with a wide range of apps and OS settings, so you won’t need to worry about that in most cases. If something does come up, it should be easy enough to disable FlexiSPY until you’ve been able to address the problem more directly.

Will FlexiSPY Drag Down the Performance of the Device?

Another great thing about FlexiSPY is that it’s designed to be covert and unobtrusive, meaning that it won’t slow down the device it’s deployed on in any noticeable way. This is important, not just for the convenience of the user, but also because it can be a giveaway if you’re trying to prevent the application from being detected. Some older, slower devices might still run into problems with this though, and if you can test FlexiSPY’s performance in more detail on a personal machine in advance, it would be a better idea instead of deploying it blindly and hoping that it works properly.

Is It Difficult to Use FlexiSPY?

FlexiSPY is designed to be used by people without too much tech knowledge. And while you’ll still need to know a few things in order to fully understand what the tool does and how it works at every step of the way, you should still do fine with just some general computer knowledge and information about security and IT. If you still feel like you’re missing some part of the picture, just get online and consult the app’s support channels, which are excellently developed and offer a lot of information, both archived and live.

Can FlexiSPY Be Traced Back to Me?

It should not be possible to figure out who you are in case FlexiSPY does get discovered in some way. The application will not link back to you in any personal manner. The most that could happen is that someone might find the IP address you’re using to control it from, but this should only be possible if you’ve messed something up with the initial configuration of the tool in the first place, and if you’re additionally careless about how you use it. When configured correctly, FlexiSPY should not only be completely undetectable, but it will not have anything to do with your personal identity in addition to that.

Can FlexiSPY Be Turned on Me?

On a similar note, it doesn’t make sense to worry that someone can “reverse” FlexiSPY and start using it to spy on you. The app simply doesn’t work that way, and it only provides a one-sided communication and control channel to whoever has deployed it on the original device. While the user might be able to uninstall it by resetting their device to its default factory settings, that’s the most they could do with FlexiSPY on their end, and you should not worry about the app being exploited by the very people that it’s supposed to be monitoring in the first place.

FlexiSPY – Legalities

As we mentioned above, FlexiSPY by itself is completely safe and legal to use. It’s what you do with the application that might be illegal in some parts of the world, especially those with stricter regulations in this area. We already mentioned Germany above, but there are other rules that apply on a more general scale. For example, you’re generally not allowed to exploit any information you’ve obtained through your use of FlexiSPY, such as logging into a person’s e-mail without their consent.

Can I Trust FlexiSPY?

There are many reasons to trust FlexiSPY, including a responsible developer with a long-running track record on the market, and an established routine that works well in a variety of circumstances. The tool does exactly what it says on the box, and its performance is top notch in most cases, making it an ideal offer for those who want something that simply works with a minimal amount of hassle.

Final Verdict – Is FlexiSPY Right for Me?

If you want something that allows you to easily track another person’s activities on their digital device(s) with minimal hassle and without revealing your own activities in any way, FlexiSPY is one of the leaders on the market at the moment. The tool has a proven history of success, and the developers behind it are very determined to make it the best offer there currently is. With a bit of creativity, you can easily integrate this into your daily workflow and benefit from it greatly.

From fixing issues in personal relationships, to ensuring that your employees are always within appropriate lines with everything they do, FlexiSPY is a tool that can do a lot with very few actions required on your part. The pricing of the application is relatively reasonable as well, and even though it might be a bit costly for some people’s pockets with the “Extreme” version, it should still work well for businesses and other users who want a full range of features at a reasonable price. The developers keep it up to date on a regular basis too, further adding to the viability of the application on the modern market.
