This article examines the capabilities of Mobistealth to spy on LINE. Mobistealth is the only spy phone software for Android which has no IM capturing for Android compared to FlexiSPY who capture 10 IM service types on an Android phone – including LINE.
How Important Is IM Capturing for Spy Phone Software?
Capturing just the text of an IM conversation can not only alter the tone of the conversation but it can also mean that you may be missing out on other vital information that can only be expressed using rich media – after all, a picture says a thousand words.
Therefore capturing the rich media that takes place in an IM conversation is vital if spy phone software is to advertise IM capturing.
But what is rich media and how can you measure how well spyphone software captures it?
First, we need to understand what rich media is.
All instant messaging programs use rich media which can be shared between devices to enhance the overall tone or message of a conversation.
Examples of rich media include the following:
- Contact Name
- Contact picture
- Shared location
- Shared video
- Shared audio
- Conversation is shown as seen on the phone
Now that we know what rich media is we need to determine how we will test how effective FlexiSPY and Mobistealth are when they capture it.
To do this we need two devices so that we can send and receive LINE conversations between both devices and then measure how much text and rich media from each side of the LINE conversation was captured by Mobistealth and FlexiSPY.
Main Test Outline
Our main device was a Samsung Galaxy Note 1 which was running Android OS 4.1.2 and had Mobistealth installed as well as LINE version 4.0.1. Our second device was an iPhone 4 which also had LINE installed and we created a LINE conversation between both devices containing text and rich and then logged in to both the FlexiSPY online account and the Mobistealth online account to see how much of the overall LINE conversation was captured and record the results.
Mobistealth Captures No Instant Messaging on An Android Phone
We have already mentioned Mobistealth offers no IM capture at all for Android phones.
This puts Mobistealth at quite a disadvantage compared to FlexiSPY, who captures the most IM services of any spy phone software currently available.
Because Mobistealth offered no IM capturing it means that not only LINE but Facebook, Whatsapp, Viber, Skype and WeChat are also not captured.
FlexiSPY Easily Captures LINE Instant Messages
Using FlexiSPY we sent the same LINE data from the Android TARGET device and the iPhone and back again and then logged in to the FlexiSPY online account to see the results.
FlexiSPY captured all the LINE conversation and rich media correctly.
If You Want To Spy On LINE Then You Need FlexiSPY
The evidence here speaks for itself.
Mobistealth offers no instant messaging capturing for Android phones whilst FlexiSPY captures all of the LINE conversation that took place on the two devices used during testing and inside the FlexiSPY online account, it looks exactly as it does on the phone which makes FlexiSPY the best spyphone software if you want to spy on LINE.
Because FlexiSPY captures both the text and the rich media from both devices it means that you get the entire contents of the conversation compared to if only text is captured.
FlexiSPY also captures other popular IM services which are summarized in the table below and in the blog article here and these will be covered in other articles in this series.
