What is rooting?

Rooting is basically a process of using a utility to grant extra permissions (like Admin rights) to a specific app.  This is needed for some of the advanced features of FlexiSPY.

Rooting is generally safe since you only choose which specific app to grant the extra permissions to, in this case FlexiSPY.

Rooting is not required in order to install and use FlexiSPY, except for the following advanced features:

  • Email capturing
  • IM capturing
  • Spycall
  • Call interception
  • App Screenshot
  • VoIP Call Log
  • VoIP Call Recording
  • Browsing Activity
  • Remote Update
  • Fully Hidden Processes
  • Hidden SMS commands
