Everything is organized neatly in your online user control panel, which is accessible not only from your computer, but can also be seen on your mobile device as well, (I used an iPhone to remotely access the data). It’s important to mention that all you need is a Wi-Fi connection or a regular single from your cell phone provider to access the information from the target phone. The information is laid out in a well-organized manner which makes sifting through the massive amounts of data you will receive exceptionally easy.

Customer Support

LIVE telephone support…It’s a HUGE advantage to dial the 800-number on their website and have a live person answer the phone who is capable of answering your questions and taking care of any issues that you may have. Luckily for me, and you, I didn’t have any issues, but it’s nice to know they’re there, just in case.

The price for this product is $29.99. It comes with free lifetime upgrades and there are no additional costs. I like the idea that you can buy it once and own it for life and that you don’t have to pay for any upgrades. The program is good for as long as you are using it on a compatible device. When there is an upgrade, you are notified by email.



Auto Forward Spy is among the best programs we’ve tested. It is very easy to use and it has everything you will need to spy on a cell phone. It will get you all the information that is available on a cell phone and will, more than likely, exceed your expectations. If you are a parent or employer or just someone who needs to monitor another individual, you can rest assured and be confident that Auto Forward Spy will get the job done for you. I recommend this program.
