Installation for Android Devices

Welcome to the installation page for Mobile Spy version 4.0 for Android devices. This guide assumes you have already made your account on the Mobile Spy server as described in the User Guide.

On Step #3, if you DO NOT have an 'Unknown Sources' box, your service provider may have restricted third-party applications from being installed and run on their devices.

After you have created your username and password, you should perform these steps below. You will NOT need to connect your phone to your computer to install.

1. First thing, you will need to install the correct built of Mobile Spy for your Android operating system. To check to see what version of the Android OS is installed on the phone, go to your Settings menu, then the About Phone tab, then scroll down to the Firmware Version field. This is the version of the operating system installed on the phone. You will need this information for Step #4 of this installation guide.

2. Next, you will want to enable your Android device to install non-Market applications. To do so, on your Home screen, tap Settings . Then tap Applications .

3. On this next screen, tap the checkbox next to Unknown Sources to allow the installation of non-Market applications. The check inside the box will fill with color once this is done.

PLEASE NOTE: If you DO NOT have an 'Unknown Sources' box, your service provider may have restricted third-party applications from being installed and run on their devices.

After this is done, return to your Home screen. Once you return to your Home screen, tap on the Browser icon to bring up your internet browser.

4. Now you will need to download the correct version of Mobile Spy that is designed for your version of the Android operating system. In the address bar, type in the appropriate URL address for the version of Mobile Spy you need from the list.
