If Any Questions Left

Are the features in the same when comparing mSpy vs Flexispy?

Both FlexiSPY and mSpy have similar features. But that isn’t the whole story. With mSpy, you get the features you want with an easy-to-choose plan. FlexiSPY makes things a little more complicated. For example, while both apps have a screen recorder tool, it’s not available with the Lite version of FlexiSPY. You’ll need to choose the high-end plan for that. Keyword alerts to let you know if they use a controversial word (like sex, drugs, or guns)? Again, you’ll need the Premium or Extreme plan for that one if you opt for FlexiSPY. With mSpy, you get the best features right out of the box.

I hear people talking about FlexiSPY vs mSpy install options. Are they the same?

No. In fact, with FlexiSPY, you’re limited — especially if your phone is not jailbroken. You read that right. While mSpy can be installed on phones that aren’t jailbroken, that’s not the case with FlexiSPY. For it to work, you’ll need a jailbroken iPhone. That’s problematic for people who just don’t want to jailbreak their device. Sure, it’s easy to do, but many people prefer to have a factory-fresh iPhone that hasn’t been altered. If that’s you, you’re out of luck with the FlexiSPY app. But mSpy has you covered.

What are the main differences between FlexiSPY vs mSPY plans?

To put it simply, mSpy keeps things simple while FlexiSPY makes things super-complicated. Just take a look at the pricing model. mSpy offers one plan so you can get started quickly. And every feature is included in that one price. But with FlexiSPY, you have a number of different plans, some of which can cost you well over $300 a year. mSpy doesn’t mess around with complex pricing models. One purchase gets you what’s promised.

Tell me about the mSpy vs FlexiSPY user experience. Is it the same?

Definitely not. FlexiSPY has been around since 2005. And it sort of feels that way. Check out the demo and you’ll see that the app feels old and outdated. Not mSpy. It’s modern, slick, and buttery smooth, so using it is an absolute pleasure. That’s true whether you’re logging in to your Control Panel on your Mac, PC, phone, or tablet.

Are both apps rated high on the App Store and Google Play?

Ratings are always changing, but it seems to be no contest when discussing the FlexiSPY app vs mSpy. On the App Store, mSpy’s rating is above 4 in many jurisdictions. FlexiSPY’s rating is much lower. Of course, ratings are always changing, so it’s a good idea to check what users have to say for yourself.

Do mSpy and FlexiSPY work on the latest operating systems?

Traditionally, mSpy has been faster out of the gate to update their app to work with the latest operating systems. It’s common for you to have to wait for FlexiSPY to work on the latest iOS update. mSpy users, on the other hand, usually have the latest update rather quickly.
