SpyStealth is universally acknowledged as the most powerful cell phone monitoring app on the market - it offers more features than any other product of its kind and has a proven track record for high-quality performance and excellent customer support.
The company is also known for its commitment to staying ahead of the competition by constantly adding new features and upgrades.
The latest SpyStealth development is the addition of a Kik Messenger monitoring feature to the list of chat apps it currently tracks.
So what exactly is Kik Messenger and why do I need to monitor it?
Kik Messenger has been around for about five years now, but has recently become a lot more popular, with a reported 200 million registered users as of January 2015. The company now claims to have more than 240 million users.
Kik is a free messaging app that is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone operating systems.
The app allows users to send and receive text messages, photos, videos and other content once they register with the service. Kik was based on the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) model and uses a device’s WiFi or data plan to transmit and receive content.
Kik markets itself as “the only mobile-first viral sharing network and the first smartphone messenger with a built in browser.”
The company also reports that 40 percent of teens and young adults in the United States are using the app to communicate with friends and contacts on other social networks and gaming platforms, making it “the biggest cross-app messenger in the US market.”
The app offers a streamlined, user-friendly experience and its popularity is still steadily increasing, so there’s a good chance that whoever you wish to monitor with SpyStealth is either already using Kik or will be in the future.
A lot of interesting content may be shared on a messaging app such as Kik. If your child is engaged in any dangerous or inappropriate online activity - such as “sexting,” for instance - platforms like this one are where it is likely to be occurring.
In fact, Kik has become notorious as a place where pedophiles and online sexual predators lurk in their attempts to contact and interact with potential victims. Apps like Kik don’t have built-in parental safeguards and it’s nearly impossible to track predators who use them.
Police have issued warnings to parents about Kik and other apps like it. The New South Wales police department described Kik as ''the number one social media problem involving teenagers.''
The warning in New South Wales was issued after a teenage girl was kidnapped by an abductor who had reportedly “groomed” the victim on Kik. The problem is that predators can remain completely anonymous on Kik - which makes the app extremely attractive to pedophiles.
Prevent problems before they can develop
The best way to protect children from online predators is to closely monitor their online activities. SpyStealth is the most effective means of doing so, particularly since they have added Kik to the list of messaging apps it can track. If you’re a responsible parent, you should strongly consider purchasing and installing SpyStealth on your child’s smartphone today.
