Monitoring and Alerts: Staying Informed and Connected

While exploring mSpy's geofencing capabilities, a question comes into my mind:
"Can I get alerts with mSpy when the target phone enters or leaves a geofence?"

I learnt that this question needed an answer, so I found it essential for not only keeping me updated on my child’s real time movements but also enabling this to be done affirmatively. This feature gave me great peace of mind as I could track my child’s location changes smoothly.

  • Real-Time Updates: Once the geofences were set, I received real-time updates. This was very re-assuring especially when my child was travelling to and from school.
  • History Logs: mSpy also provided logs of all entries and exits from these geofenced areas. The reviews of these logs made me understand the lifestyle pattern of my child.
