Why we started:
I noticed a while back that there was a lack of quality Remote Administration Tools, monitoring and management software for the Android platform.
There's AndroRAT - which is notoriously buggy and difficult to setup
Dendroid - which costs $300 and is difficult to find
..and spying apps like mSpy which usually have an expensive monthly subscription, and are only used for spying, not giving the "control" that a Remote Administration Tool does.
The final nail in the coffin, almost all of these require a rooted device. Monitordroid requires no rooting
So we set out to create Monitordroid, a dedicated commercial-grade monitoring and management software, as well as a Remote Administration Tool, for Android. We also are looking into Mobile Device Management for enterprises. Contact us if you would like to work on enterprises solutions.
Monitordroid is designed from the ground up to be fundamentally different than any other RAT for Android, and does not use sockets, SMS, or XMPP to send commands to devices, all of which have been proven unstable or slow.
The software was developed from the very beginning to be incredibly stable and crash-resistant, so that once you install it on a device you never have to worry about doing so again.
Monitordroid is made in a way that it is only run on the mobile device when a user sends it commands through the web application, so network usage and battery consumption are nearly non-existent.
Current features as of version 1.2:
We are out of our beta phase and into early adopter face. Therefore, more features are coming during the full release (provided free of charge for anyone who becomes an early adopter)
Features currently in development:
Viewing pictures from your device remotely.
Logging the audio from Phone Calls on your device available for remote listening.
Using your device's microphone to record audio available for remote listening.
Browser history, better location tracking and location history log, much faster commands, app list, and more!
(NO FEATURES REQUIRE A ROOTED PHONE)
Monitordroid requires that you have physical access to the device, but is specifically designed for speed of installation. The client program is only 240kb and there are only two fields, a unique device name and your account email, which must be filled out before you connect the device to the server. Installation takes less than a minute
Unique in its field as a fully-fledged monitoring/management software and Remote Administration Tool for Android, Monitordroid is versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes including:
1. Remote Administration of your own devices.
2. Theft protection for your devices.
3. Parental Control software for monitoring children which you have legal custody of and are under age 18.
4. Employee tracking software for company owned devices.
5. Student activity tracking for school owned devices.
The full Monitordroid Mobile (Java) and Server (PHP) application can be found at https://github.com/tyler124/. We would greatly appreciate any help from fellow developers to improve the project, and fulfill our goal of creating an application the truly allows users to control their devices, anywhere.
Free Open-Source Installation:
To use Monitordroid completely for free, you're going to have to have your own server capable of issuing GCM-Messages and a MySQL database to store device information. After that, you must download the source-code and make a few small modifications to configure the mobile application to connect to your server. Read more detailed instructions on how to setup your own (free) server in the Readme file at:
If you don't want to worry about modifying the source code or setting up a database, we have a device hosting service that is set up and ready to use. Take advantage of our no credit card required 5-day free trial, and you can control all of your devices from our web application at http://www.monitordroid.com/app. While we are in our early stages, we are offering an exclusive discount to our early adopters. So please consider converting your free trial into a paid account and support our development.
