Facebook Spy Tools and How to Use Them

guide-item-1

In terms of parental and employee monitoring, social media monitoring tools are spy programs that one installs on their child's or employee's devices. After that, the programs track all their activity on that device - not only on social media.

Today the market offers plenty of monitoring tools that vary in price and functionality. The majority of them can track such activity as:

  • overall time of the device usage
  • most used apps
  • visited websites
  • keystrokes
  • search queries

Besides, most tracking tools can take screenshots and block unwanted websites, including social networks. The most advanced spy tools like Spyrix offer live broadcasts from the webcam and screen, sound, screen and video recording and even call recording.

Monitoring tools usually have a hidden mode, so they are not visible to the monitored person. Most programs can also be password-protected, and you can be sure that the person will not access the program and meddle with the settings.

Several years ago, before humanity entered the age of smartphones, the average age of a child who visited Facebook was around 16. Сhildren visited Facebook either from PC or from the first mobile phones that had internet browsers. Today, when smartphones have conquered our lives, and parents have become clement about the use of social media by their kids, the age figure has seen a significant drop. Now it is not higher than 11.

However, several studies have recently revealed that the time the kids spend on Facebook has not grown. Nowadays, most kids spend not more than an hour on Facebook, and a little bit more than a third of them have confessed to spending from one up to two hours on average on the website. Even though it is definitely good that they do not become overly addicted to Facebook, is it possible to trust teens about that?

On the one hand, social media can serve as a rich source for getting knowledge. For that, however, children must understand how social networks work, which is hard for them to do due to their immaturity.

On the other hand, interactions with strangers on Facebook can put teenagers at risk and lead to disastrous consequences. Fake accounts, cyberbullying and online predators are primary reasons to stay alert. The overuse of social media in many cases leads to disturbing psychological effects, such as Facebook depression.

Besides, content shared on social media may not be safe for minors, and a lot of potentially harmful information can reach them. Immense amounts of users and content posted every minute make it almost impossible for the Facebook administration to take measures to counter such problems.

Statistics of children’s usage of Facebook.

Thus, the program for Facebook tracking is a real catch for parents. They can always be sure that their children do what they need for the homework: do research, write essays, and so on and do not waste all the time surfing on Facebook.

A Facebook spy app provides parents with a detailed report that shows how long the child has been using Facebook and discloses other websites that the kid has visited. In this way, parents can put the child's activity on social media under control and ensure that Facebook does not harm their performance in college or school.

Moreover, a Facebook spy lets you know whom the child chats with and restrict potentially dangerous communications.

guide-item-3

First of all, you should install the spy tool on the phone or computer of the person that you want to monitor. To do so, you need physical access to the target device and, if we speak about computers, the admin privilege. Once the installation is complete, the app starts tracking the person's activity on that device, including their Facebook activity, such as messages, posts, comments, etc.

You can view the collected data in various ways depending on the tool of your choice. Most spy apps today can deliver data to a secure web account. This way is very convenient as you can access the records from any device and any location. You can also receive the collected data by email, cloud storage or view the activity live via webcam and screen broadcast.

guide-item-4

Although spy tools do not give you full access to someone's Facebook messenger, they can give you an impression about their usual talks there. The spy app records all keystrokes, including the messages that the person sends. However, incoming messages are impossible to record this way. Luckily, social media monitoring tools can take screenshots of the chat. For example, Spyrix Facebook spy takes screenshots by timer or whenever the person sends the message. This way, you can be sure that you do not miss anything and always know who your child or employee talks to and what they discuss.

If you use an advanced tool like Spyrix, you also can watch the real-time chat with the Live Viewing feature. Or you can set the app to record the computer screen constantly and watch the recording at any time later.

Video and voice calls are another favourite feature of Facebook Messenger, especially with teenagers. They use it for gaming, meeting new people or chatting with friends. The calls are much harder to monitor as regular monitoring tools do not have any functions to track them. Spyrix has you covered with its call recording feature. The program records all calls made through the Facebook app, giving you more control over your child's communication.

A Virtual Private Network or VPN is a tool that creates a secure connection between your device and other networks over the Internet. With VPN, any data that you send over the Internet goes first to a VPN server. There it gets encrypted and then transmitted to its destination via a safe tunnel. Thus, VPN increases the security of your data on the Internet while also hiding your actual location and the IP address of your device.

Although the VPN technology was initially created for security purposes, today, it is often used to access restricted resources or for malicious purposes. So, can VPN be also used to cheat on the monitoring tool? The answer is no. The spy tool can track activity and transmit the reports no matter what network or VPN the person uses. Moreover, if you restrict access to certain websites for the user, VPN will not stop the program from blocking them.

guide-item-6

Today, most spy tools are paid-for, but you can find a few decent free ones. Generally, they will have limited functionality, but if you only want a general overview of the person's activity on social media, they can be a great solution. One of such programs is Spyrix Free Keylogger that can track keystrokes, take occasional screenshots and monitor the general usage of the computer.

Most paid programs offer free trial periods of various duration. It is a good chance for you to test the program for free before deciding to buy.

guide-item-7

If you are a worried parent or a husband who suspects his wife of cheating, you might want to have a look at your child's or wife's Facebook chats. And you might want to do it stealthily not to raise any suspicions, so you cannot just take their phone or computer and go through it. So, how do you spy on the person knowing only their number or Facebook ID?

There are no apps that will allow you to spy on Facebook Messenger having just the phone number or the name of the person.

Legal monitoring tools require installation on the device of the person that you want to monitor. In most cases, you cannot install these tools remotely or silently. Thus, you need direct access to the person's device and, of course, their consent for monitoring.

guide-item-8

The legality of monitoring is a difficult question. According to US laws, you can install monitoring tools only on the devices that you own. If you are a parent who bought their son a brand new iPhone, or an employer who provides employees with the company's laptops, you have a full right to install a tracking tool on these devices. A small note - you are obliged to notify the person that you are monitoring them. Yes, even if it is your child or partner. And yes, you require their agreement for monitoring.

If you still want to spy on the person without them knowing it, you are going against the law. Besides, it is illegal to install monitoring tools on devices that you do not own. In these cases, if you get caught, you may receive a criminal or monetary penalty, let alone ruined relations with the person. Developer companies are not responsible for the inappropriate use of their products and any subsequent financial, emotional or other damage. The entire responsibility is on you.
