Do you need to hide your mSpy installation from your child or employee?
If so, be aware that if mSpy is installed on an Android 10 Device, it will display an application icon that will be visible to the user — there is no way to remove it
Icon Visibility — Why Its Important
Many parents and employers do not want their child or employee to be able to remove the monitoring software without administrator permission. Advertising the monitoring application encourages the user to attempt to circumvent, interfere or remove the monitoring product.
For this reason, the monitoring software should allow the choice of hiding or showing the icon
What exactly does the mSpy App Icon do on Android 10
If mSpy is installed on Android 10, an icon called ‘UPDATE SERVICE’ is created and visible. If this icon is selected, then the user is able to remove the software. Here’s a video showing what happens.
What Can Be Done
At this moment, there is no way to make mSpy invisible. The choice is to replace mSpy with another monitoring app that is invisible.
Our testing shows that all mobile monitoring products on the market that run on Android 10 are affected. Please see the table below
