FlexiSPY Review


FlexiSPY is one of the most advanced spy phone apps in the world. It has everything you’d expect in a phone monitoring system, and more. It records phone calls, captures keystrokes, lets you read email, SMS, Facebook and WhatsApp messages, track device locations and even remotely turn on microphones to record conversations—all without the user knowing.

It’s not cheap, however, the FlexiSPY Extreme starts at $199. This FlexiSPY review will help you decide if the extreme version of FlexiSPY is worth the money.

Please note: In order to install FlexiSPY on an iPhone or Android phone, you must jailbreak or root the device. If you’re new to cell phone tracking, I recommend that you start with mSpy (for iPhone, no jailbreak required) and SpyBubble (for Android, no rooting required). But if you’re already familiar with jailbreaking/rooting, and need advanced features like call recording, call interception, and spying on instant messages, FlexiSPY is a great option.

Getting Started

After purchasing the FlexiSPY App, you will receive a confirmation email that contains your login information and step-by-step instructions for installing the app.

To get started, visit the FlexiSPY online portal on your computer, then select the device that you want to install the spy app on and follow the on-screen instructions.

Select the correct version for your operating system and follow the prompts to download and install the app.

Once the app is installed, data from the target phone is secretly sent to the FlexiSPY server. You can log into the FlexiSPY portal from a computer or smartphone to view activity reports.

FlexiSPY Features & Packages

It comes in two versions – Premium and Extreme. The premium version offers the basics you’ll find in many other spy software, with the exception of call interception and call recording. These two features are offered in the Extreme version. On the FlexiSPY website there is a comparison chart, so you can easily match the features that are most important to you.

FlexiSPY Premium Version

FlexiSPY GPSThe premium version has all the standard features you’d expect from a spy app, allowing you to track every text message, call, website visited, and multimedia file on your target’s phone.

It captures even more on a rooted device, such as Facebook activity and instant messages sent via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Skype. FlexiSPY has continued to add new features to its spy app since it first launched.

Here are some other premium version features:

  • Keylogger. Every keystroke typed on the target phone is captured. You’ll be able to see every username and password.
  • Track GPS location. It uses GPS to track the phone’s location. You can view their location history on a map, and track their current location in real-time.
  • Keyword Alerts. You can set up text or email alerts that will notify you if the phone sends or receives messages with certain words.
  • Take Screenshots. You can remotely take screenshots of the apps they use.

Have a look at the demo to see it in action.

FlexiSPY Extreme Version

Call InterceptThe Extreme version allows you to listen in to and record calls, send fake text messages, and remotely control the phone’s camera and microphone. Some of the key features of FlexiSPY Extreme include the following:

  • Live Call Interception
  • Call Recording
  • Listen Live to Phone Surroundings (bug their phone secretly)
  • Ambient Recording (record their phone’s surroundings)
  • Remotely Take Photos

How Do The Advanced Features Work?

Live Call Interception is a feature that allows you to intercept calls on the target phone to be monitored while they take place, without the phone user’s knowledge. How this feature works is you’re hooked into a call as a third party. It’s similar to being on a conference call, only nobody knows you’re on the line. Your phone stays muted. The one condition is the target device needs to be capable of 3-way calling, so check with the phone carrier to ensure this feature is enabled and/or available. Learn more about how to set up Call Interception.

Call Recording lets you record both incoming and outgoing calls (including WhatsApp and Skype calls). You can record calls that are made to and from specific numbers only. All recordings are uploaded to your FlexiSPY account. From there, you can download recordings directly to your computer.


Ambient Recording is similar to Call Recording and allows you to secretly record what’s going on around the phone. Here’s how it works: Under the Call Controls in the FlexiSPY online portal, click Start Ambient Recording and enter the number of minutes you want to record. This turns on the phone’s microphone in stealth mode and records conversations taking place near the device.

The FlexiSPY Extreme comes with a host of advanced features, making it an excellent choice for power users. Please note that these features are only available on a jailbroken iPhone or rooted Android device.

How FlexiSPY Works

How FlexiSPY Works

This is how it works. You download and install the FlexiSPY app on the phone that you want to monitor, it silently works in the background recording the phone activities and uploading them to its own server. It can even turn on the phone’s microphone remotely to act as a bug. When you’re ready to view activity reports, simply log in to your FlexiSPY account, and you’ll be able to see their texts, emails, social media messages, phone calls, GPS location, browser history, photos, contacts and more.

How to get it

FlexiSPY is not available on the Apple App Store or Google Play, so you’ll need to go to FlexiSPY’s website to download it. In most cases, the installation process is fairly straightforward. The setup wizard will guide you through the steps to install the app.

The app is easy to install and configure using a wizard-based interface.


1. What do I need to do before installing FlexiSPY?

  • Get their device in your hand physically (including the passcode).
  • If the device is an iPhone or iPad make sure you jailbreak it first before installing FlexiSPY.
  • If the device is an Android phone and you want the additional features that require root access make sure you root it first before installing the software.
  • We strongly recommend that you create a backup of the device before you initiate the rooting/jailbreaking process.
  • Be at a computer to log in your online portal to start the installation process.

2. Is FlexiSPY hidden?

The FlexiSPY app is designed to be invisible to the phone’s user. Once installed, the app hides itself inside the target phone and remove its launcher icon.

Tap YES to hide flexispy

3. Is FlexiSPY legal?

In most countries, it is legal for parents to monitor their children’s’ phone activity. Employers also have a legal right to monitor employees’ activities on employer-owned devices. However, it is illegal to install FlexiSPY on a device owned by someone else. Laws may vary from state to state, so check local laws before using it.

Lately there’s been a lot of legal hassle with StealthGenie. FlexiSPY is based outside of the United States, whereas the other notable spy software providers aren’t. Their unique location (Thailand) allows them to work through a loophole. They’re able to evade the legal hassle StealthGenie is currently facing. FlexiSPY does include a disclaimer on its website, saying that it is responsibility of the user to comply with all applicable laws in their country.

4. Is it possible to transfer the license to another phone?

Yes, you can transfer the license to another phone. You will need to deactivate your licence on the old phone before activating again on the new phone. If you need activated software on multiple devices at the same time, you must purchase additional licenses.

5. What do I do if I have a problem?

FlexiSPY offers 24/7 live chat support, phone support, and email ticket support for users who experience issues. The company also offers a premium installation service, through which FlexiSPY technician will root or jailbreak the phone and install the software for users. In addition, the website has a series of videos explaining how to use all the features of the software.


FlexiSPY is compatible with all major operating systems, including Android and iOS. Sadly, it doesn’t work on every operating system, so you should make sure that your target phone is running a supported operating system.

FlexiSPY can run on the following operating systems:

  • Android: Android 4.0.3 to Android 11
  • iOS: supports versions up to iOS 14.x

FlexiSPY has finally launched a desktop version for Windows and Mac. The following operating systems are supported:

  • Windows: Windows 7 and up
  • Mac: OS X Mavericks (10.9) up to macOS Sierra (10.12)

The FlexiSPY Premium offers the best value for your money, is packed with features and is competitively priced.

You also have to keep in mind they are the only ones currently offering call recording, call intercept and ambient monitoring.

Another added benefit is since the company is not located within the United States, you won’t pay any additional taxes and no VAT charges. The price you see is the price you pay.

  1. Hello Jack,

    I read your online article regarding phone spy review. It was great! Very informative and Thank you. I have several questions.

    1). I contacted Flexispy online and they told me the Android phone does not require rooting? Is this true or are they not telling me something? Because your article states that it requires rooting for Flexispy.

    2). I am interested in installing the software onto Samsung Galaxy S9 so the three software companies you recommended were Flexispy, Highster Mobile and Hoverwatch. Of these 3 which one has the most features on the Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S9).

    3). Is there anyway you can add these software remotely?

    4). Do you have any suggestions on getting past the passcode or fingerprint scan in order to install these software onto the phone? I am even willing to pay someone to help me with installing these software. Do you know anyone who I can pay and help me with the process? or do you have any better suggestions?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    • Thanks Greg.

      1. Please note that some of FlexiSPY’s more advanced features, like call interception and instant messenger monitoring, are only available on rooted phones. So if you want to use these features, you need to root the phone.

      2. The FlexiSPY Extreme version certainly has more features, but also a higher price. If you want a cheaper alternative to the FlexiSPY Extreme, check out the Hoverwatch Personal. Hoverwatch delivers some seriously premium features at a budget price. Highster Mobile is very easy to use, although this is partly because it doesn’t have as many features as other spy apps.

      3. It is not possible to install a spy app remotely on a phone. To get the app installed, physical access to the target phone is required.

      4. Unfortunately, if their phone is locked by a password which you do not know, then the app cannot be installed. As far as I know, there is no way to bypass the password without a factory reset.

      Hope this helps and good luck.

  2. Jack,

    I will be buying a new Android phone, changing phone carriers, and transferring the existing phone number to the new carrier. Can Flexispy be installed on the new phone before it is activated by the carrier?

    I don’t know if the Wi-Fi functionality (for downloading the software) on a new phone will work before the phone is activated with the new carrier.

    Thanks for your insight.


    • Hello Paul,

      Yes. This should not be a problem. The FlexiSPY app is installed on the phone’s built-in storage not the SIM card.
