umobix user dashboard

Let’s face it, there are DOZENS of spy apps out there all claiming to be the best way to monitor someone’s phone.

But most fall WAY short of the hype.

Many of these apps have difficult installation procedures, are constantly crashing, and have borderline fraudulent refund polices.

uMobix claims that they started their company because they saw a huge opportunity to provide a completely different customer experience.

They promised to build reliable app from the ground up, helpful customer service, and back it all up with a totally transparent refund policy.

Did they succeed?

Read on to find out…

In this uMobix review I’ll reveal:

  • my experience with installing the app on iPhone and Android devices
  • the 2 killer features that caused me to put this at the top of my spy app list
  • my frustrations and a surprising experience with uMobix support

By the time you read every word of this article you’ll know whether or not you should buy uMobix for your phone monitoring needs.

My Full uMobix Review

***I don’t want you wasting your time, so make sure you read this before proceeding. The following is true of ALL SPY APPS***

1. iPhones: Using uMobix on an iPhone requires that you have the users iCloud credentials (email address and password).

If the user has 2-step authentication enabled you might also need access to the phone to get the code that Apple sends.

This is the case with EVERY spy app on the market. If they’re telling you otherwise, RUN.

That said, uMobix gives you access to more data than any other app on the market right now using this method.

2. Androids: Installing uMobix on an Android requires you to download the app on the phone, so you WILL need physical access to the device.

Now that’s out of the way, let’s get straight to the meat of this review first so you can see what separates uMobix from other spy apps on the market.

uMobix offers two key features that put it ahead of every other app out there.

One is for iPhones, and the other is for Androids.

For iPhones and iOS Devices

In addition to all of the standard features like call logs, contacts, etc, uMobix is the ONLY spy app out there that gives you access to all of the following WITHOUT jailbreaking the iPhone.

These features are only available with the “Full” package.

  • text & imessages
  • Facebook messages
  • Instagram messages
  • Whatsapp
  • Tinder
  • Line
Because of a recent software update from Apple that disables jailbreaks, apps like mSpy and FlexiSPY no longer offer these features at all.

For Android Devices

If you need to monitor an Android phone uMobix also offers a very unique feature.

They have a powerful keylogger that is installed with their software. This is huge because it can be used even without rooting the device.

This allows you to see EVERYTHING the user types into the phone from ANY app. As with the iPhone version you will need to get the full version to have access to all of the following:

  • text & iMessages
  • Facebook messages
  • Instagram messages
  • Whatsapp
  • Tinder
  • Line

As with the iPhone version there are lots of other capabilities that come with the “Full” version of the software, but these are what really make uMobix unique.

I’ll get into the rest of the features in a moment.

But first…

Installation and Setup of uMobix


One of the first things I noticed when setting up the uMobix app was how easy they’ve made the installation process.

It seems like every other app I’ve tested left out a step, or required talking to support before getting the app to work properly.

I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do is struggle with an app if I only have a few minutes to get it installed.

Once chosen your subscription plan and made your payment you will receive an email with detailed instructions.

The instructions are different based on the type of phone you need to monitor.

Installation on iPhones

For iPhones you will need to know the persons iCloud email and password. Once this information is entered Apple will send a code to the phone that you will need to enter in your uMobix dashboard.

And yes this means you WILL need physical access to the phone.

Unfortunately there is no way around this. (If you’ve looked at other apps that claim to have a way around this BEWARE. Once you’ve signed up you will most likely have a hard time getting a refund when it doesn’t work)

Installation on Android Devices

Installation on Android devices will require a few minutes of access to the phone. You’ll be instructed to download the app.

Once this is done you’ll need to follow the specific instructions in the email to configure the app and hide it if you want to.

After the installation is complete you can login to your control panel to check that the app is sending data from the target phone.

Plans and Pricing

The pricing differs slightly depending on the type of phone you need to monitor.

When compared to our previous top spy app, mSpy, uMobix comes in considerably cheaper. The “Full” plan gets you more features than mSpy’s “Premium” plan, and you will save $20 per month if you pay monthly.

You can save even more by paying all 12 months at once for a total of $149. A full year of mSpy’s “Premium” plan will cost just under $200.

Here’s the breakdown for an iPHone

Since monitoring Android devices requires an app that is downloaded to the phone itself, you’ll pay a slightly higher price ($59/mo). But you’ll still save $10 per month compared to mSpy.

Key Features

In addition to the key features I covered above, uMobix also gives you access to just about everything else on the phone. This includes:

  • View call logs: Check call logs in chronological order, including call duration, timestamps, and contact names along with their phone number. You can also view call status like outgoing, incoming, rejected, or missed calls
  • View messages: view received, sent, as well as deleted messages, including the name of the sender and receiver, chat history, actual text messages
  • GPS location: View phone location details with timestamps plus location history. You can also view geographical co-ordinates along with addresses
  • Bookmarks and browser history: See the websites visited. View the saved bookmarks from the web browser of the device
  • Much more: View received, deleted, and sent WhatsApp messages, including group and private chats, along with their timestamps. View received and sent direct messages on Instagram with accompanying timestamps and other important details like contacts. You can also view videos and photos stored on the target device (all require “Full” package)

Monitoring Snapchat

As of right now uMobix does not offer a way to monitor Snapchat on an iPhone.

If you are monitoring an Android you can use the Keylogger feature to see any messages typed from the target phone. But you won’t be able to see messages sent to the target phone.

Customer Support

After spending so much time testing spy apps I’m rarely impressed with the “tech support” teams most of these companies use.

I was SHOCKED at how quickly I was able to get in touch with someone at uMobix.

And not only were they fast, they were extremely knowledgable. The rep I spoke to knew more about phone operating systems than I ever want to know.

They spend a great deal of time and resources making sure they are AHEAD of the changes that are coming from the various manufacturers.

This is one of the big reasons they didn’t come up with a jailbreak version of the software for iPhones. They somehow knew in advance that feature was going to be taken away by Apple.

Compatible Devices

The app works on phones from Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, LG, Motorola, and many more. It works on all mobiles and tablets running on Android version 4 or higher.

To see if it’s compatible with your specific device you can enter the model number into the compatibility tool on their website.

Conclusion, There’s a New #1

While uMobix is a new name in the spy app marketplace, they have quickly established a solid name by providing a stable product backed up with solid customer support.

If you’re looking for an app that can quickly and easily be installed on a phone you need to monitor, uMobix is now my number 1 pick.
