There are a number of reasons why you might want (or need) to track a cell phone.
Keep a watchful eye on your children!
There are a lot of parents that track a cell phone that belongs to their children. This is sometimes done with the consent of the child and sometimes parents will track a cell phone covertly.
The world can be a dangerous place for children and teenagers.
Children grow up far more quickly than they used to do and demand far more freedom than previous generations. Much of a young person’s time is spent accessing the internet. Although the world wide web can be a fascinating place to explore it can also be potentially dangerous.
Track a cell phone to find out if your child is being bullied!
Bullying used to be something that occurred in the school yard at break times. The internet has now made it possible to bully someone online. Cyber bullying as it is called can be extremely distressing for the person being targeted. It can cause depression and anxiety and has (in extreme cases) caused the recipients to take their own lives.
Track a cell phone to find out who they are connecting with on social media and who is emailing and texting them!
It is relatively easy to create a whole new persona online. Children ‘make friends’ online all of the time. Their circle of ‘friends’ on social media networks like Facebook can amount to hundreds of people. They send and receive emails and text messages and give out lots of personal information online.
But are the people they are having contact with really who they say they are?
Track a cell phone to find out which websites your children are accessing!
Smart Phones and Tablets have full internet access. Anything that can be accessed on a computer can be accessed on a smart phone. It is however far more difficult to activate ‘parental control’ functions on a cell phone than on a home computer. When you track a cell phone with software like Easyspy you are able to see exactly which sites your child is visiting and exactly how long they have spent viewing the content.
Track a Cell Phone to Catch a Cheating Partner!
You may be in a situation where you suspect your partner may be having an affair. All of the tell tale signs are there. They are spending much more time than usual ‘at the office’ working late. They are taking a lot more care about how they dress and are wearing more perfume (or aftershave) than usual.
You want to find out who they are talking to, who is sending them text messages and where they are going just to put your mind at rest.
Easyspy cell phone tracker (and similar apps) allow you to track a cell phone and monitor the traffic to and from the device. It will tell you where your partner is and let you monitor their movements. In fact it will enable you to carry out a full surveillance of the device.
Track a cell phone to Monitor your employees!
Are they really with your client or are they simply taking the opportunity to visit the golf course?
Are your staff working or are they spending large amounts of their time sending personal emails, visiting social media sites or playing games online?
As an employer you have the right to know what is happening in your business and how your money is being spent. Tracking and monitoring your employees company smart phones can help to provide you with intelligence that could help you to run your business more efficiently and more cost effectively.
Easyspy Cell Tracker Features
There are a number of cell tracking apps on the market. Many of them share similar basic functions but some are far more sophisticated (and more complicated to use) than others.
A large number of them require you to take out a monthly contract which can mean they are expensive to run.
Below I have listed the functions that are available from the Easyspy Cell Tracker package.
Easyspy is easy to install and use and requires a one off payment of only $69.99 (for the full Highster upgrade).

So at the end of the day there are a number of cell phone trackers that would possibly be capable of providing the information you require.

Once you have made a list of what you want from your cell phone tracker you can then make a decision about which software you should buy.
How does Easyspy pro compare with other cell phone trackers?
In order to answer the question I have compared the functions that are available with Easyspy to the functions of another well known cell tracker ‘Stealthgenie’.
Although I have no first hand experience with Stealthgenie it is supposedly (according to the reviews I have read) a relatively sophisticated application so I am not in any way suggesting that it is an inferior product!
When you compare the advertised functions of Easyspy and Stealthgenie it becomes apparent that both of these cell phone trackers have very similar functions.
Both products will locate the target phone/device by means of a GPS tracker. Stealthgenie and Easyspy can both monitor email and text messages. Both of these cell phone trackers is capable of monitoring web site activity.
Easyspy (pro versions – Highster) and Stealthgenie allow remote access to the microphone and camera on the target device for covert surveillance of the phones location.
In fact most of the functions are identical for both products!
As stated above Easyspy has a lot of characteristics that are very similar to its competitors.
The biggest difference between Easyspy and Stealthgenie (and many other cell phone trackers) is in the cost!
If you buy the Stealthgenie product you pay a monthly subscription to use the service. There is a scale of charges that range from $99.99 per annum to $199.99 per annum depending on the package you purchase (the options are basic, silver or platinum).
Easyspy pro (Highster) is sold for a one off payment of $69.99.
There are no annual subscriptions and no hidden costs. Just a one off payment of $69.99.
There are numerous situations that might arise that would make you consider using a cell phone tracker.
The main considerations if you want to track a cell phone are suitability (does it do what you require), ease of use and cost.
Easyspy cell phone tracker is a fully functioning cell phone tracker.
It has all of the functions (and more) that most people would ever need.
It is easy to install and use and is undetectable on the target device.
It is extremely competitively priced ($69.99 for the Highster version).
