Monitoring a Cheating Spouse – Cell Phone & PC

Friday, October 19th, 2012

If you have your suspicions about a cheating spouse there are now more ways to catch them out than there was ten years ago. These days the world is intrinsically connected in way that can be dangerous for those trying to hide something. So if you do have your suspicions the best way to get the truth is to start monitoring their devices.

Whether or not you should monitor a spouse is a different issue and may be one that doesn’t play well on peoples morals, but that debate is a lengthy one that will never have an agreeable answer, so we won’t go into it now. If you feel that monitoring your spouses devices is the route you need to go down then read on.

Man on Cell Phone

The two devices in question are the mobile (cell) phone and the computer or laptop. In the 21st century both can be monitored with ease. The mobile phone can be monitored by simple programs that you install when you have a few minutes alone with the phone. Mobistealth is the leading phone monitoring software which you can purchase and prepare from your own computer when no one is around. Then, when you have a few minutes with the target phone you simply type a link into the phones browser and the software gets installed.

Phone and computer monitoring programs both work in complete stealth, so as soon as the application has been installed no one will know about it. With Mobistealth you can log into your members area to see the logs and look over what has been monitored. You’ll be able to listen to phone calls, read texts, see picture messages and even see where your spouse has been using GPS tracking. You can read a review of Mobistealth here.

Monitoring your spouses computer is just as easy. Using an application like Gecko Monitor, all you’ll need is 10 minutes alone with the computer to set up the software, after which everything runs in stealth while monitoring things like keystrokes, websites visited, applications used, documents typed and emails sent. You can view all of this either by logging back into Gecko Monitor or by having the reports sent to you remotely via email.

With both of these programs installed you can be sure to find out the truth about a cheating spouse, and have the proof to confront them with. You can download a free trial of Gecko Monitor here.

Mobistealth Review

Mobistealth Review Logo

Mobistealth is the phone monitoring software for Android, iPhone, Blackberry and Nokia. We thought we’d give Mobistealth a short review on our blog as it compliments Gecko Monitor and will hopefully be useful to our target audience and customers. Mobistealth is probably the most popular phone monitoring software on the market today. Mobistealth has three versions – Lite, Pro and X-Pro. Each version provides slightly different versions of monitoring capabilities.

The Lite version of Mobistealth starts at around $8 per month and includes the following:

  • Call history logging.
  • SMS logging.
  • Browser history logging.
  • GPS tracking
  • Contact details.
  • Bookmark monitoring.
  • Appointment/Calender logging.

 

The Pro version starts at around $12 per month and includes all of the above plus the following:

  • Recording of surroundings.
  • Location tracking without GPS.
  • Picture/Camera logging.

 

The Pro-X version starts at around $17 per month and includes all of the above plus:

  • Recording of calls.
  • Video logging.
  • Blackberry messenger monitoring.

 

To install Mobistealth on the target phone you’ll need around 5 minutes alone with the handset to download the software, install and restart the phone. Once this is done there will be no trace of Mobistealth running on the handset and the software runs very effectively.

To view the phone logs and reports you simply have to log into your Mobistealth account through their website. The process is extremely easy and the reports are easy to read through and understand. The GPS information is particularly outstanding, displaying all the relevant information using Google maps. The recording of the calls and surrounding noises is also brilliant and clear. Another great feature is the SIM change feature that’ll alert you if an extra vigilant wrong-doer changes the SIM in their phone.

If you need to monitor a teens phone, or you have your suspicions about a cheating spouse then we recommend Mobistealth over all of its competitors, it’s a brilliant spy program that deserves a lot of praise.

Parental Control Features To Be Built Into Gecko Monitor

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Here at Gecko Monitor we strive to provide an unparalleled computer monitoring product and are always researching, planning and implementing new features and improved functionality. With this in mind we asked ourselves what other features our users would need. We came to two conclusions; Parental control features and networked office monitoring. As most of our users are home users monitoring their home computers, we decided on exploring parental control features first, although we will add more functionality for networked offices in the future.

Parental control (in computers) is obviously already an established market and a lot of our competitors already implement these features. We’ve looked at the market leader and other applications in the industry to decide how we can match and even improve on what’s already out there, and we think we’ve got something pretty special in the pipelines.
parental control software Of course the first thing we asked ourselves is what parents want from parental control at the most basic level. I’m sure all parents will agree that it’s safety, which we bare in mind at every stage in the development of the feature.

Blocking and Filtering is the bulk of parental controls and it’ll work like this; Every time a web page is loaded it’ll be scanned by Gecko Monitor before it’s shown. If there are words or images that appear inappropriate the web page will be blocked and will show a ‘locked’ splash screen instead of the website. But how does Gecko Monitor know what’s appropriate and what’s not? That’s up to you.

Behind the scenes we’ll have an extensive, comprehensive keyword list, sorted into categories that Gecko Monitor will check through when scanning a page. We’ll have suggested levels of filtering for different age groups and you can even add and remove keywords and phrases yourself. We’ll also include a setting for the youngest age group that only allows a select handful of sites (a children’s network) and block everything else.

The development of parental control is in its infancy at the moment so we’ve got a lot of work to do but we’re hoping to release the first version of the new Gecko Monitor within the next 4 months. Are main aim at this time is to create a program that’s an industry leader, a comprehensive tool that’s flexible and reliable. If you have any ideas, comments, requests or anything else you’d like to discuss with us please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
