EDITORS’ REVIEW

TrackView tracks, monitors, and protects your mobile devices, laptops, and desktop PCs via GPS, video, and other security measures. It can show parents where their kids are and even what they’re doing, help find and recover lost or stolen devices, watch your home, and send alerts to mobile devices — all for free.

PROS

Modular: Install only those modules you need in Android devices, such as Find My Phone or Video Monitor-Surveillance.

Log in via Google or Gmail: All you need is a Google or Gmail account to start using TrackView. Be sure to log in from every device you want to monitor.

Video monitoring and remote recording: TrackView can record video and audio of a phone’s surroundings or monitor a Webcam or baby cam and save recordings to the cloud. The optional Night Vision feature records video in low light and can activate remote flash.

Push to Talk: Tap Push to Talk to speak to your kids, spouse, or anyone via a monitored device.

Event Detection: Events like calls or messages can trigger TrackView’s monitoring. Sound Detection and Motion Detection features are in the works.

CONS

Google only: TrackView only works with Google or Gmail accounts and Android, which might bother some people.

Privacy: TrackView’s ability to track, monitor, and record what individuals do might raise privacy concerns.

BOTTOM LINE

TrackView takes the built-in capabilities of mobile devices and creates a virtual personal security network that not only protects your phone or tablet but your home and family as well.
