Technical Details


PdaSpy.A is a commercial monitoring application with a 24-hour free or trial lock. It must be manually installed onto the targeted device, and an account at PdaSpy.com must be created.

Once installed, it places no icon on the application menu to avoid being noticed. It just runs silently in the background, logging the following information:

  • Phone calls
  • SMS messages
  • GPS locations

The information can be viewed by visiting the PdaSpy.com and logging in to the user account.

An account at PdaSpy.com is required to view logged data
