Top 10 Best iPhone Spy Apps in 2015

Last Updated: November 12, 2016

It’s something that hangs over your head every other day.

Big Brother is watching your every move.

The advancements in global positioning systems have brought significant improvements in iPhone spy apps: apps that will track and monitor your every activity.

You’ve probably seen hyped up headlines across the internet – ‘iPhone spy apps to expose your boyfriend or ‘catch your cheating wife with spy iPhone software.’ Sounds great, but spy apps for iPhone serve a much greater purpose.

Why do you need spy apps?

Many spy apps are designed to serve a meaningful purpose: to keep children safe from potential predators, to keep tabs on ailing parents, or to help find a lost or stolen device. iPhone spy cell tracking software puts you back in control to be an effective hand-on parent, caretaker, and device owner.

With features such real time GPS tracking and monitoring available, you’ll have a 24/7 window into a child, parent or a thieves’ world. This will enable you to find out what is really happening behind your back. See what’s being discussed, what’s happening to your device, what’s being shared and get all the answers you need.

Is it legal to install these apps?

These apps may raise legal questions. Through advertised as covert spy tools, they can’t be used legally in many ways. Most apps include a ‘disclaimer’ that the developer/company will assume no responsibility for any activities carried out by the user that may not abide by the laws in his/her country, which imply that you are solely responsible for misuse, or damage caused due to using a spy app.

It is a criminal offence to breach someone’s privacy in most countries. So if you plan to spy on your spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend, you can’t do it legally. Such practices are most likely disallowed and deemed illegal.

That said, it is perfectly legal to use these apps to ensure the safety of family and children. The monitoring and tracking functionality can be used by businesses to ensure company vehicles stay on route, and the same goes for tracking productivity of employees. Any legitimate use of a spy app comes under the legal category.

With that under consideration, here are top 10 spy apps iPhone owners can install and use:
