You suspect your spouse is hiding something. They are constantly checking their phone and won’t let you see who they are texting or calling. You wish there was a way to see who they were talking to without their knowledge. Well, with Android spy apps, you can and they would never know you were spying on them.

In this article, we are going to look at some of the best Android spy apps you can use. Each one has it strengths and weaknesses, so read through this guide to select a suitable tool for you.

Things You Have to Know Before Using the Spy Apps  

Before we get to the different apps you can use, there are several things you need to keep in mind about using these apps.

  • You can only spy an Android device which belongs to you to avoid legal risk.

  • Many of these spy apps will require you to root the Android device before you can track it. It is important to note that rooting an Android device can significantly affect its performance.

  • You also want the app to remain hidden on the target device or your spouse will find out you are spying on them. Therefore consider using apps that will remain undetected.
