    Do any of the spy app software actually work? Looking into getting it for my kids but all the reviews are so bad for them. I want it to be a hidden one so I’m curious if anyone has tried one and had success with it before.

    Depends on what you’re trying to spy on I suppose. iOS by design doesn’t really allow you to install software and not make it known that it’s installed.
    Honestly though, as a parent myself I would advise against betraying your kids’ trust by installing such software on their devices without their knowledge. If they find out good luck getting them to open up to you about things in the future. If you’re going to install spy software then tell them you’re doing it. I’d also let them know that if they attempt to uninstall it or turn it off in any way they’ll no longer have a phone.

    Unless you’re using an MDM of some sort, you will have to take possession of the devices to install the spyware. Right? If so, why not just go through their apps, messages, and social feeds on occasion? That’s what I did and I made it known to them that I would.

    By the way, I didn’t give them a choice!

    Yes to needing MDM, and you can also know what’s up if you have an appropriately capable security appliance as your gateway of last resort.

    One could get an entry level Meraki MX and then use the world class and enterprise level MDM for free as long as you don’t need support. If you get an advanced software license you will also have DNS and network based security vs anti-virus software that is really a too late security solution.

    I don’t know the Ubiquiti products very well but have some associates who consider some of their products as the cheapskate or poor man’s alternative to Meraki.

    It’s really too bad Apple left the AirPort family dead on the limb and then just dead. I hoped it would mature to be an even better SOHO network solution.
