The software is designed for parents to monitor their children, or for employers to monitor their employees. We tried monitoring both a 2018 iPhone XS and a 2018 Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Highster Mobile on Android

Highster mobile is an excellent app when it comes to monitoring an Android device. If you buy the Pro plan at $69.99 (one-time payment), you will be able to monitor calls and even restrict incoming calls. It will allow you to read all text messages, including those sent via chat apps such as Telegram, Facebook Messenger, LINE, Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, Kik, hangouts, and iMessages. You will also get full access to all social media accounts, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat, to read all Tinder messages, access multimedia files. You will get access to the device’s current GPS location on a Google Map (geo-fencing), and you can receive location alerts if the device enters a restricted zone.

Other features include: tracking incoming and outgoing emails, access to calendar, notes and activities, contact list. It is highly effective when it comes to internet security, allowing you to view browsing the history, block websites, but also view and block installed apps. You can also set up keyword alerts.

We tested all these features on our 2018 Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and were quite pleased with the results. After installing Highster Mobile, it hid immediately, and within minutes, we could see the data appearing on the website control panel.

Highster Mobile on iPhone

Highster Mobile is an iPhone spy app with no jailbreak needed. It may be accurate, but its features for the iPhone slightly limited when compared to the Android version. Highster Mobile as an iPhone tracker can still log calls, read SMS and WhatsApp, and log browsing history, and much more.

However, it has fewer options for social media monitoring and chats app monitoring. Other than that, the options are similar to the ones for Android. When we tested these features on our 2018 iPhone XS, we found that they all worked perfectly. Within minutes, we could see updates appearing in seconds.

Is Highster Mobile compatible with my device?

  • Supports all Android devices up until Android 9.
  • Supports all iOS devices from iPad to iPhone.

Pricing and plans

Highster Mobile has two plans: Basic and Pro.

The Basic version comes in at $29.99, while the Pro version costs $69.99. There is no yearly subscription package. When it comes to Android monitoring, the difference between the Basic and Pro versions is considerable.

Why? The Basic version provides a broad set of functions that let you monitor location, calls, SMS, and emails. It does analysis and sends you comprehensive reports to feel confident about someone’s activities.

The Pro version has a full comprehensive range of options to keep track of the Android device. Despite essential functions, you can: block unwanted applications and websites, have total control overall messaging apps, restrict incoming calls and use a keylogger.  We recommend the Pro version for parental control and employee monitoring.

      Highster Mobile is misbehaving a bit and we’ve received word from experiences users that it’s not hidden and can’t be used without a jailbreak. According to our tests, Umobix can be used on the latest non-jailbroken iPhone and can spy on whatsapp.

  • Micheal hospe

    How do I set it up to work from my phone? I did all the steps but it’s telling me there’s nothing on the phone. Which I know isn’t the case.

    • Anjelica

      By default, the Highster Mobile icon will appear in the Applications menu (screens and/or pages) and also in the Applications Manager menu. If the icon is not visible, it’s possible that the software hasn’t been installed properly.

  • matthew Michael finn

    I bought this under the impression it was hidden so I could catch my wife cheating. Can I get a refund now that I know it cannot be hidden?

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      Sure, you can apply for a refund and get mSpy instead – it is hidden a 100%!

  • James

    Will it work on an iPhone 8 if I only have the password and not the apple ID

  • Andre

    does the target’s iphone need to send me a verification code? because of security or all I require are their apple id and password

    • Anjelica Rivera

      No, no verification code is required if you have apple ID and password.

      • Yoshi

        Do I need to have Apple ID and password from my phone or from the target’s iPhone?

        • Anjelica
          Anjelica

          You need the target’s iPhone iCloud credentials.

  • Mark

    Hi, when you say the Icon will show up do you mean on Android 10? Or does it show up on all Android devices? Thanks.

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      It shows on all Android devices. If you want a hidden one, try Flexispy.

  • Ross

    I have been ripped off for $50,000 all I have is a cellphone number. Will your software locate the thief? The police won’t help locate this person as it’s not a matter of life or death. I’m desperate to get my savings back. Can you help?

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      This is slightly about our paygrade. It’s better to seek advice from law enforcement.

  • BM

    Can you see deleted messages that were prior to downloading app?

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      Yes, unless they’re deleted.

  • Bunni

    Was the listen to surroundings function removed?

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      I believe so, yes. FlexiSPY still can though.

  • Kaos

    Several iPhone specific questions.

    Exactly what social media apps do you show?
    Where is the data from the tracked device stored and accessed from?
    Is information from the tracked device sent via any internet connection (including cell data) or what?
    Do you actually record keylogging without a jail break?
    Do you monitor LinkedIn?
    Does the IPhone version have live GPS tracking?
    Do you need iCloud access?

    Question. Will icon show up? Will this be under downloads, driver, history. Any place person can look? Or completely invisible? Thanks Diana

    • Anjelica
      Anjelica

      The icon will show up, the software is completely legal and not hidden. You can try Flexispy or Hoverwatch, they are hidden.

  • Sage

    If someone has added this app to your phone without permission, like an abusive ex who is stalking you, how do you know which of these tracking apps he is using to locate you and how do you remove them? I have replaced my cell phone and he is still able to find me
