Good and convenient software, but unfortunately, it doesn't provide any monitoring opportunities for smartphones. It would be so helpful for many parents, I think. So, if you are focused on PC mostly, you can download Whatsapp viewer, for sure, but if you want to track a certain smartphone (including messages and calls), I would recommend looking through some options.
