A phone farm is a collection of smartphones or mobile devices connected to the internet and used to perform automated tasks such as clicking on ads, completing surveys, or running apps. These devices are often controlled remotely using software that allows a user to schedule and monitor the tasks being performed. Phone farms are commonly used to generate revenue through advertising and other forms of monetization, and they are also used to artificially inflate app ratings or social media engagement.
Phone farms work by using software to control a group of smartphones or mobile devices remotely. The software allows the user to schedule and monitor the tasks being performed on each device, such as clicking on ads, completing surveys, or running apps. Also, the devices are connected to the internet, and the software can be used to automate various actions, such as opening and closing apps, clicking on ads, or filling out forms.
The phone farm operator may use a wired or wireless network to connect the devices to the internet. In some cases, the phone farm operator may use virtual private networks (VPNs) or other remote access software to remotely control the devices.
Once the software is installed and configured on each device, the phone farm operator can use a web-based interface or command-line tool to schedule and monitor the tasks being performed on each device. This can include setting up specific schedules for tasks, such as running certain apps at certain times or monitoring the status of the devices to ensure they are running correctly.
