3 Best Android Monitoring Apps of 2021

The internet as much as being a revolutionary invention has its dark side too. And because of this exact same reason, cell phone monitoring apps are in high demand because of their advanced tracking and monitoring features. These apps are generally used by parents to monitor their children’s online activities or by employers to increase productivity and efficiency. 

In presence of hundreds, if not thousands, of Android monitoring programs available out in the market, it has become very difficult to choose that one particular monitoring app that best suits your requirements. But we have already done this tiring homework for you! You’ve come to the right place if you are a concerned parent or a business owner looking to optimize the output. Here are the top 3 monitoring apps of 2021 for Android that can efficiently cater to your monitoring needs:


On number one spot is Xnspy; an Android monitoring app that is trending on the top owing to its remarkable selection of features and affordable price. Both parents and employers can use this app to keep an eye on their children and employees, respectively. A noteworthy feature of the app is that it tracks the data of the monitored phone in real-time. You can monitor all text messages, call logs, instant messenger chats, emails, multimedia, web browsing history, and even track location using GPS and geofencing. Xnspy also listens and records phone calls and surroundings through its ambient recording feature.

You can automate alerts for certain contacts, words, and locations by using the Watchlist Alerts. So, when a certain contact or word appears in any of the chat conversations or texts, you would know right away. Similarly, by adding certain locations to the Watchlist, you can know when the phone user enters or exits the area. Xnspy also allows you access to remote features through which you can turn off the device, lock it, wipe off its data, take screenshots, and turn on the microphone without making the phone user suspicious. The app is compatible with both Android and iOS, but there is a slight difference in the features. Xnspy has introduced a keylogger and Wi-Fi log feature for Android phone monitoring. 


Another reason for the app’s popularity is its seamless compatibility with both Android and iOS latest versions, as well as some older versions too. The best part? The app keeps its pace with the frequent changes in the operating systems. 

Pricing Plans

Given the range of basic and advanced monitoring features, Xnspy is an affordable option, to say the least. The app offers two editions to its users: Basic and Premium. The Basic edition covers all the basic aspects of monitoring and costs $4.99/month. As for the Premium edition, it differs a bit in functionality and offers advanced features to the user, and costs $7.49/month. 

Rating 9.8/10

2. Spyzie

On number two, we have Spyzie, which is another option to snoop on someone’s Android phone activities. Spyzie lets you monitor text messages, calls, IM chats, web browsing history, locations, and a lot more. This app also offers you GPS location tracking coupled with the geofencing feature, similar to Xnspy. The app runs in silent mode, and there is no need for you to root the device if it is an Android phone that you wish to monitor.

As far as the advanced features of Spyzie are concerned, you can take screenshots and even preview the videos of the device you are monitoring. Spyzie is one of the few apps to offer that. Also, seemingly, the app offers a wide range of monitoring features to its users, but going through customer reviews indicated the functionality issues of the app.



The app is compatible with latest versions of both Android and iPhone. However, it does not support some older OS versions of Android phones.

Pricing Plans

For Android devices, Spyzie offers two editions. Spyzie’s Ultimate Editions costs $49.99/month and provides the users with full functionality of the features. Then there is the Premium feature that costs $39.99/month, but users have limited functionality of the features. Although Spyzie has an impressive range of monitoring features, it is more towards the expensive side.

Rating: 8/10

3. MobiStealth

MobiStealth ranks 3rd on our list of apps to monitor Android phones. The app also offers an expansive range of monitoring features. With MobiStealth, you can know about the phone activities of the person you are monitoring. You can view the text message with details, call logs, installed apps on the phone, web browsing history, instant messenger chats, multimedia, web browsing history, multimedia, track locations, and even record phone calls and the surroundings. MobiStealth also has a keylogger feature. 

You can access all the phone activities remotely using your phone and computer. The app is particularly famous for business use as employers use this app to keep an eye on the employees. 



MobiStealth works smoothly with both Android and iOS devices. However, in Android, its compatibility is limited only till 8.x which makes it a less likely option for people using newer Android phones.  

Pricing Plans

There is MobiStealth Pro and Pro X that cost $16.66/month and $26.66/month, respectively. The basic versions for the different devices offer only basic monitoring features. You have to go with the Premium Versions to enjoy the full functionality of the features. Due to this, MobiStealth becomes an expensive choice for monitoring. 

Rating: 8/10

Final Thoughts

For us, Xnspy ranks on the top because it is an affordable and reliable monitoring solution. Xnspy is affordable compared to others if you take the advanced features into account. MobiStealth and Spyzie aren’t bad options either, but you can’t call them economical. 

Xnspy delivers value at a low price and runs excellently with all the Android and iOS versions. To add to its qualities is the 24/7 customer support to cater to any customer complaint or query. The website has a good range of tutorials, how-to guides, and live demo versions, too. You could go through customer testimonials as well, which pretty much state the same thing about the app’s performance and excellent customer support. There is hardly an aspect of monitoring that Xnspy fails to cover, so what more do you expect from a monitoring app?
