    I am very concerned about a few things I found on my daughter's phone and I am looking at installing PumpIC to monitor her phone but it says I will nee to root it. The phone is from AT&T. I'm specifically looking to monitor text/sms, instagram and snapchat. So help on rooting is my focus unless someone has a great app that allows me to monitor without rooting.

    I did found this but think it may be outdated, as the previous poster says the phone can not be rooted. Try deleting Snapchat, then turning on parent control in the play store so any app above a certain rating, like "teen" or "mature 17+" will no longer show up in the play store as a search result.


    I wouldn't recommend trying this method, as I wouldn't date to try it on a S7.

    Rooting depends on the phone and the ROM version - so that post is outdated.

    And rooting someone else's phone, even if it's your young child's, is illegal almost everywhere, so if the phone is registered to the child, don't. (If it's your phone and your child uses it, monitoring it is legal.)
