Hi there,

I'm afraid there is no proper way to do so.

There is however a Proof of concept which you could try: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61164-how-can-i-monitor-android-devices-is-there-a-mobile-probe#reply-196275

Please understand that we're not able to support this approach.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
