Instant Messaging apps are becoming more popular day by day. Every individual owns a smartphone which can be used for instant messaging using the internet. Using Instant Messaging apps is the most convenient way of communicating with friends, family and colleagues. The most popular Instant Messaging app is WhatsApp. WhatsApp needs no introduction as most of us are already using it and it became more popular when it was acquired by Facebook for a staggering $19 Billion. Today, I am going to share an app called WhatsDog (WatchDog) that will make your WhatsApp experience exciting and interesting.
What is WhatsDog (WatchDog)?
With a large number of users using the app, it gets really difficult to keep track of details of everyone as when they are online, and for how much duration they stayed online. Though knowing such things are not important, but sometimes we need to spy on a few contacts for various purposes.
So, if you want to track someone’s activity on Whatsapp as when he comes only and for how much duration, also how many times he comes online, then you cannot do it without some addon. There comes WhatsDog into the use as it is designed in a way that you can keep an eye on your contact list 24×7.
It is fairly simple to use. Sometimes Parents use spy software or Spy apps to track their kids’ activities. For such situations, WhatsDog is the perfect app to use without any hassle.
How To Install WhatsDog (WatchDog)?
Unfortunately, this app was removed from Google Play due to some security reasons. Thus, you have to download the apk file from the Internet and then use it. You can download WhatsDog from the link below.Once you download the apk file, you’ll have to head over to Settings of your smartphone and enable the “Unknown Sources” option from the Security option.
Then go to Downloads folder and run the APK file to install WhatsDog app. Once the app is installed, launch it by tapping on the icon.
Getting Started with WhatsDog (WatchDog)
- The first thing you’ll see when you launch the app is the Start button right in the middle of the screen. Once you tap on the Start button, you will be directed to the next step where you’ll be asked to choose to select one of the Google Accounts you’ve signed in with on your phone.
- After doing that, you have to proceed to select the contact(s) you want to spy on from your contact list.
- One of the features of this app is that it is not region specific, which means you can also enter someone’s number who lives in the different country than yours.
- Once you enter the number the contact you want to spy on, WhatsDog starts tracking the WhatsApp activity of that particular contact. It will keep the contact under observation 24/7 and for as long as you want to and will then display stats based on the data it collects. To begin with, it displays the duration for which the contact has been online using WhatsApp in the period of 24 hours, 7 days and even 30 days. So once you Install the app and use it for 24 hours keeping a contact under observation, you will be able to see the duration for which the contact has been online in the last 24 hours. The same can be done for 7 days or 30 days.
How Does It Work?
There are four menus in the app that can be seen on the top.
Calendar lets you see the data for a specific day. This includes the exact time throughout the day when the contact was online and also the duration for which the contact remained online.
Next is the Main menu which shows the time and the duration when the contact was online on the current day. If the contact has not been online for numerous times during the day, the list will also include details of the contact for the previous day.
The next menu, which has a crown like a symbol shows the time for which the contact was online for the last 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days. It also displays a “WhatsApp Addiction” meter which displays how much the contact is addicted to WhatsApp. No idea how they calculate it. This option in the app also shows the number of times the contact was online or the number of connections made in the selected duration.
The last Menu is the Settings menu which lets you change the settings for the app. The first setting you’ll see is the “Turn ON/OFF notifications” which is unavailable in the trial version of this app. The next setting allows you to silent the notifications about your contact being online for a set period of time. You can also choose to turn on/off the vibration for these notifications.
The last option under settings, you’ll see the “Donate” option which clearly indicates that it is for donating money to the developers. This in return will give you some advantages. Firstly, you’ll be able to use the app even after the expiration of the trial period. Secondly, the advertisements which pop up anytime will go away. Third and the last feature which will be unlocked is the “Turn ON/OFF notifications” option which was not available in the trial version of the app will now be available.
The last option in the Settings menu is the Delete Info option that will let you delete all the information related to the chosen contact and start a new with another contact if you want to. So that was all about WhatsDog.Read Also:
