How to Put A Spy App on Someone’s Phone?
There are many reasons why you might want to put a spy app on someone’s phone. The reason could be sinister, but it could also be as simple as a parent wanting to monitor their child’s movement and interactions to be able to protect them from the dangers that lurk on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms.
Many of these cyber predators target children specifically so it is important for a parent to be able to monitor and limit these activities.
The best spy apps are readily and easily available online. There are many of these spy apps, so you will need to do your homework and spend some time doing research to determine which will be the best for you. Also, some of the best and most effective spy apps will need to be paid for so which you go for will also depend on your budget and the device that is to be targeted.
Put A Spy App on Someone’s Phone
Once you have done your research and have found the best spy app for you, there are two main ways of putting the spy app on someone’s phone. Which one you will need to use will depend on the spy app you have chosen and the type of device your target is using.
Physical access to the target device
If the target device is an Android device there is a 99% chance that you will need to have physical access to the device in order to be able to download and install the spy app on the device. While this may prove to be a difficult task that will need to be well planned, the good news is that you will only need to physically access the device once.
First, you will need to choose and subscribe to your chosen spy app which may involve paying a fee depending on the app that you have chosen. You will need to follow the steps that they give you and enter all the information that they need. You will get to a point in the setup process where you will need to access the target device to download and install the software.
Before doing this, research how long the installation will take and make sure that you have enough time to do this with time to spare in case you run into any problems during the process.
Also check what technical skills you may need to do this installation. Some spy apps may need you to root or jailbreak the target device in order for the app to work. If you are not familiar with these terms, then you probably won’t know how to do this. Do not attempt to do this unless you are 100% sure you know how to do it properly.
Jailbreaking and rooting a device involves compromising the security of the device and will nullify the manufacturer's warranty. Doing this incorrectly could cause irreparable damage to the device. If you are not sure how to do this, you will need someone to assist you.
Once you are sure you know what you are doing you can access the device and install the software. The installation will be undetectable to the target and you will now be able to access your spy app’s user dashboard and start monitoring the device.
Access the phone via iCloud
With iOS phones you may not need physical access to the phone and you may be able to access the phone using the iCloud account linked to the target device.
In order to access these account, you will need the username and password. If you are using it to spy on your spouse or to monitor your child’s phone, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get hold of this information. In this instance there is no need for any physical access to the target device and the entire process will take place and be performed remotely.
Even with iOS devices, some spy apps will need the device to be jailbroken which will mean you will need to have physical access to the device. Most spy apps come with full installation instructions and some of the more expensive ones even offer an installation service.
It is a huge step to decide to install the best spy app on someone’s phone, especially if it is your spouse. The fact that you feel the need to do so should already be a sign that your relationship is trouble.
You may not like what you find when monitoring a device, so it is not a decision that should be taken lightly. If you are willing to take such drastic measures you better be ready to face the consequences, one way or another.
