Why track WhatsApp messages and other activities?
As such monitoring and spy apps come with lots of features, users can use these apps for their own purposes. For example, monitoring apps were initially designed to allow parents to monitor all the activities of their kids but many people use such apps as anti-theft apps and services too. With the help of GPS feature, it is quite easy to locate a lost or stolen device; all you need to do is going to the online dashboard and get the exact geographical location of the device at any given moment.
Even if the thief has turned off the GPS feature, you can get call records, messages and other information that can help law enforcement or police to catch the thief and retrieve your multi-hundred-dollar phone or tablet. Parents all over the globe worry about their kids’ activities and whereabouts. They don’t have slightest idea of their kids’ online activities, what they do on social networks and what kind of friends they have on WhatsApp or Facebook. These monitoring apps allow parents to see all the online activities of their kids whenever they want.
Interestingly parents can uninstall apps and disable features on their kids’ smartphone or tablet remotely. Other than monitoring their online activities, parents also use GPS tracking function to see the whereabouts of their kids. Obviously the GPS features pin points the exact geographical location of the device but it also records the routes. That means parents can see where their kid went yesterday and how much time he spent on a specific place.
How to track WhatsApp messages?
In order to track WhatsApp messages, you first have to install the monitoring app on the target device. Regardless of what app you’ve chosen, you have to install it manually that means you need physical access to that device. Because of the operating system limitations and restrictions you cannot do that remotely. However you need physical access to the device for the first time only; for installation and initialization process, and after that you can control everything remotely by using the online portal.
When you get your copy of monitoring app and software, the company also gives you access to the online portal or dashboard. You can access that portal using your credentials and that portal works as a command center from where you can enable/disable different features and control the overall behavior of the device. Depending on the device model you are using and what monitoring app you got, some features could be enabled or disabled by default. To enable WhatsApp monitoring feature, go to the online portal and use your credentials for login.
From there you can enable WhatsApp tracking feature and disable features you don’t want to use for now. One of the best things about these monitoring and spy apps is they are undetectable. Monitoring apps work in stealth mode that means the target person cannot know the presence of a monitoring app on his/her phone.
