Being an author here on TekJourney, it’s safe to say that I’m obsessed with tech, especially when that tech is related to smartphones. So when I first heard about the new cell phone spy app on the market, I knew I had to check it out for myself. The new app I’m talking about is PhoneSpector, and it’s available to download for both iOS as well as Android devices. To try it out for myself, I took the time to download and install both versions of the app. For the purpose of this review, I downloaded PhoneSpector on both my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as well as my iPhone X.
The PhoneSpector App
For the most part, the PhoneSpector software is similar on both iOS and Android devices. The main difference between the two is the installation process. To better illustrate this, let me explain how you would go about installing the software on each device. For Android, simply download the app to the device you would like to backup or extract information from. Once you have the software downloaded, enter the license key sent by PhoneSpector to begin backup/extraction of the phone’s data.
At this point all you have to do is log into your secured online account to view the device’s information. For iPhones, you start the installation process by signing into the device’s iCloud (using the Apple I.D. and password). Once the installation has completed, the phone’s data will be accessible through your online account. What’s great about this software on iOS is that you don’t even need physical access to the iPhone to install it!
As you can see, the installation process on both Android and iOS devices is quite simple. But if you happen to run into any trouble installing the app, PhoneSpector has a team of friendly customer service representatives that can assist you in the process. Now that we’ve covered installation, let’s see what this app can do for you.
One of the most important factors for any mobile spy app is the amount of information that can be backed up and extracted from the phone. In my experience with PhoneSpector, just about everything stored on both my Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X was accessible through my online account. To better illustrate this, here’s a list of everything that can be backed up and extracted via the software.
Types Of Accessible Data
- Text Messages & iMessages
- Call History
- Browser History
- Photos & Video Logs
- GPS Location
- Social Media
- Third Party App Info
One thing you should always consider before purchasing any phone app, not just spy applications, is compatibility.

Why You Should Consider PhoneSpector
If you’re like me, then you probably have a ton of important information stored on your smartphone. I’d bet you’ve also lost all that data on more than one occasion as well. If this sounds like you, then PhoneSpector is the app you need. The best part about this software is, even if your phone is lost, stolen, or broken beyond repair, you can still access all the information you had stored on your device. All this for a one-time purchase of $69.99, no additional subscription charges or monthly fees. So the next time you lose your phone, you won’t have to lose your precious data as well.
