Let’s check the opportunity to monitor skype while it is installed on mobile or tablet.
Skype is a popular program for communication among both individual users and businesses. It was initially developed for working on PCs and Laptops, but not so long time ago the company developed software that is acceptable for most of smartphones and tablets.
Skype allows to get and to send free messages, to make voice and video calls and to organize online conferences. Standard usage of Skype does not require payment and installation of Skype is free. The program requires stable internet connection.
Skype gained popularity very quickly as it is a comfortable and absolutely free alternative to phone calls. It also gives an opportunity to establish good video and voice streaming.
It’s also possible to purchase premium services that include some advanced functions for a conference call organization, but most users still choose free version.
Skype for Phones and Tablets
As soon as new version of Skype for tablets were introduced, it became very popular among users. Using the program allows to avoid any fees for calls and messages and users stay in touch with contacts while there is internet connection.
Monitoring a Skype Program or App
There was no opportunity to spy on calls or messages sent via Skype. Recently few developers introduced their programs for monitoring Skype.
The main problem connected with monitoring Skype was — that standard programs were not able to recognize Skype calls and messages, as they were not connected to basic functions of the device itself.
This became a reason for many parents and business owners to be worried as it was easy to miss an important and significant part of information. There are special conditions for spy software to work properly including technical characteristics of target devices.
What’s Required to Spy on Skype
Top software producers for monitoring offer solutions for Skype monitoring. Among them: uMobix, Mspy, Mobilesp and Flexispy. After testing these offers, we would say it’s better to choose Flexispy or Mspy. They both are quite well.
Using the spy program requires Jailbreak (for Apple devices) or Rooting (for Android).
The program allows to:
- Check messages that were sent via Skype.
- See list of logs with additional data like date, time, numbers and names.
- View sent images
The main minus of the software is that it’s impossible to record any calls.
Due to rapid spread of web programs for connection and communication standard spy software is about to become useless. As developed programs are becoming more convenient and much cheaper (or even free) more and more users prefer to connect with others through them but not using standard phone functions. That’s why developing and improving new spy functions that would cover new applications is number one priority for most good software producers. It’s already possible to use spy programs for WhatsApp, BB Messenger, Viber and iMessage. Since recently, it has become possible to monitor Skype as well. Current versions are quite limited and requires improving but they are necessary to get more full picture and to get important information.
