In a world where almost, every phone being sold is a smartphone with auto call recording features, many find it safe to assume that it is legal to record calls.
They are not entirely wrong.
As long as the other person involved in the conversation is aware of it and does not hold any objections to you doing so, you are not breaking any legal regulations.
But if there is even the slightest chance that the other person may object to it or that it might invade his/her privacy- yes, it is illegal and you are strictly forbidden from doing it.
Sometimes, for reasons of legal safety, you are allowed to record the call without the person’s knowledge. For example, if you are going to present it as legal evidence in court, you are allowed to record calls without consulting the other person.
Another important thing to consider while you’re recording calls is that several countries have several rules about it. Checking out whether or not your country allows this is essential. The rules mentioned above apply in general to the majority of the leading developing and developed countries of the world.
Don’t worry though, as long as you stay on the other side of the line it’s completely okay to record calls for fun or any other useful purpose as long as both parties are okay with it.
As mentioned above, most smartphones come with built-in auto recording features.
Not Android, however.
Which leads to the question, how do we record phone calls on Android?
Not to worry, recording phone calls in Android can easily be done with a third-party app.
There are many you can choose from in the Google Play Store but the trick is choosing one which records phone calls on your Android with crystal clear quality.
Here is a step-by-step process on how to record a phone call on your Android phone using a third-party app.
Go to Google Play, search for Call Recorder. Click the install button, followed by the accept button to start the process.
In the same page from where you installed your app, click the Open button. When the app opens, it will do so with a dialogue box asking access to your contacts and the other necessary functions on your phone. Select Allow. Without allowing it to access, it isn’t possible to record your conversations.
After you click Allow, the app will ask a few other permissions and when you enable them, it gets enabled. You can check to see if it has or not on the top of your phone screen.
Make a call to check if the app has been properly installed and enabled. When the dial tone is heard, the recording will begin. If it does, it is an indication that the app is working.
As concerned parents, many people try to protect their children from the harsh ill-effects of the digital world.
Using a phone tracker app, you will be able to control the calls and messages your child receives and makes, the websites he/she visits and the kind of material exposed to him/her through his/her phone.
Though several options are available online, the best seems to be Spyzie.
Here is the step-by-step process explained how to use a spyzie app to record a phone call on your Android phone.
Step One: Create an Account
Create an official Spyzie account on the site. This will help you keep better track of the changes and in-app purchases you have made. Do this using a valid email address and phone number. Spyzie offers several payments plans out of which you can choose one that works best for you.
Step Two: Install the App on the Target Phone
After registering yourself, go through the set process on the phone from which you wish to record your call. Select Android in the OS section provided after filling in your details.
Now, open the target phone and click Settings. Then, in the list of options provided below, select Security. Now, select Unknown sources, and turn it on. Confirm your action by clicking OK in the dialogue box that appears.
Now, install the Spyzie monitoring app. To do so go to the setup page in the target device, where you can see the download button. It is usually an application (.apk) file. Find it in the device’s downloads folder and run it through.
Next, open the app you’ve installed and sign into the account you have created. Now, click start to the administrator service in the target device. Now, by doing so you have activated the app.
It’s primary function being to operate without the knowledge of the owner of the target device, as soon as you activate the app in the phone, it automatically goes into stealth mode, removing the app’s icon from the phone’s menu. It leaves no trace of its presence.
Step 3: View the monitored data via a Control Panel
Before moving onto this step, it is essential that you finish the setup process on your computer or phone as well. After this, you will be taken to your dashboard automatically by the setup wizard page. It can be easily accessed online anywhere using by going to this link: https://my.spyzie.com/dashboard.html and logging in. You can also visit your dashboard by logging into your account through the control panel app. This can also be downloaded from the setup page in the phone you wish to spy from.
When you access the control panel for the first time, it takes a while, not more than a few seconds for the app to sync all the data from the target phone to yours, which is the monitoring device.
Step 4: Monitor and Record Calls from your target device
There is a huge list of options on the dashboard displayed on the monitoring device after you log in. This is the list of options for all the data you have access to in the target phone and contains all the calls, texts, social media apps, browser history and several other accessible data.
Click the option titled calls to access the target phone’s calls and listen to the ones that have been recorded.
