If you consider using spyware to track kid’s activities on mobile device, think again. Regardless all its advantages, mobile platforms are not even close to being safe. By trying to install an app with the spying functionality on your child’s smartphone, you put him or her in jeopardy as many such applications can transfer collected data not only to you but also to a malicious person.
