With almost everyone around us using smartphones for more than just calling, our dependence on these devices needs no introduction. Be it, kids or adults, we have our smartphones right from the moment we wake up to the last minute of our day when we’re lying in our beds. With the whole day being spent with these devices, we can perform a number of activities on our devices. While most of these activities are necessary and productive, misuse of smartphones is also constantly on the rise. Keeping an eye on our dear ones and their smartphones are thus necessary. Be it your kids of our partner.
Wondering why this talk about misuse of technology? Well, because today we will be talking about one such app that can help you keep an eye on someone or spy on them using their smartphone. The app is Zealspy, and we’ve reviewed it for you. So let’s get to it. You might have heard about Whatsdog app which is very popular for spying on your Whatsapp contacts. Zealspy is one of its best alternatives.
How to use Zealspy?
To begin with, you’ll have to install the app on your Android smartphone. To do that, click on this link and download the .apk file for the Zealspy app as it is not available on the Play Store due to non-compliance with Google’s policy.
