Disclaimer! Beware! Monitoring or spying on Cellphone that you do not own is a Criminal offense. We do not condone the use of these apps for illegal or unethical purposes.
Android Spy apps are growing day by day, most of which do not get featured on playstore and those who do, are removed immediately by the Staff in the name of privacy concerns. But let me put together 7 free Spy Apps that you can download and install straightaway to monitor yourself or your loved ones.
Unlike paid Cellphone monitoring apps like mSpy or WinSpy which are bundled with numerous features, these free apps specifically do only one task(function) i.e either record calls or tracking down someone’s location. These apps features some of the more creative uses of Android Smartphone devices.
All the Apps are personally tested by me and worked flawlessly on my device during daily Use. However some devices may not support some apps functionality, I have tried my best to find and list the working apps.
1) Spy – Quick Voice recorder
Spy app makes voice recording easy and records voice on the go. This tool really comes handy when you want to record sensitive conversations and don’t want to show that you are recording. No need to open the voice recorder, just dial * and press call, and the app starts voice recording. That too without any activity on screen, even the person near you won’t know your device is recording voice.
Install via Playstore: Spy – Voice recorder
2) Call Recorder
It is a simple ‘Call Recorder’ app that can record any calls and save it on the phone. It may not support few smartphones running older versions of android OS, where it fails to record opponents voice. This is the problem of recording driver that is included into firmware made by manufacturer of the phone and has nothing to do with the app. Works on all major Motorola devices as tested by me. check this list of unsupported devices.
