How to Spy ∣ Track Someone’s Phone Remotely for Free
There are several spy apps available online. Some are free and others require a subscription.
Check out this blog post for a detailed look at the best smartphone spy apps.
Well, there are over 5.22 billion cell phone users in the world. Around 1.5 billion of these are in India and China alone! The United States boasts of over 280 million users. The majority of these cell phones are smartphones.
With the rise of the number of smartphone users in the world, virtually every new invention is built around how it can work with a mobile phone. The advancement of smartphones has made so many day-to-day activities much easier. People can navigate using maps on their phones, take photos and or videos, or even make payments by simply tapping on their mobile phone a few times.
Did I mention that communication is way easier now? Yes! Sending letters through the post office and waiting for days for them to be delivered is now way out of fashion. There are so many new ways one can use to communicate with loved ones. Most of these methods can fit on your palm; in a smartphone. From Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, and so on, people now interact more and with ease.
With this ease of communication, people have ended up having unnecessary, sometimes even inappropriate, conversations. Partners have parted ways due to messages one of them found on the other’s phone. Underage boys and girls have been able to access adult content and even have adult conversations via their smartphones.
As a parent of two teenagers, a 17-year-old daughter, and a 14-year-old son, I have been worried sick about what they did on their smartphones. We have cell phone rules around the house and all but still, I cannot rest not knowing what they did on their smartphones.
The other day, Sasha, my 17-year-old daughter, was late coming from school. I tried calling her cell phone but all my calls went unanswered, all fourteen of them! I am a worried parent and I know I am not alone. I wished there was a way to know where she was without having to wait for her to answer my calls.
Calvin, my 14-year-old son, on the other hand, was always on the internet. A 14-year-old cannot have that much schoolwork to research. I wanted so badly to keep track of his activity on the internet.
There are so many scenarios that make one wish there is a way they can be able to see what the other person is doing on their phones. It could be your partner, teenage child (or children in my case), employee, or even just a friend you feel is saying things about you behind your back. Well, we might not have flying cars all over the place, not just yet, but we do have a way you can read those messages you badly want to read on their phone. And without touching their phone!
Let’s talk about Mobile Spy Apps and specifically Safespy. Safespy helps you to track the activity on another phone. From incoming and outgoing phone calls and SMS to activity on social media apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp. All this and the other person won’t even know it is happening! Safespy is hidden and undetectable. It can operate in stealth mode and no one knows it is there except you.
Let us look at how to spy or track someone’s phone remotely using Safespy.
The first thing you want in a spy app is stealth. An app that is stealth will work in the background without being noticed. Remember you need the other person to act normal. If they know they are being tracked, they will not behave normally.
There are quite a few spy apps out there. Make sure you get the one that best suits your needs. Once you have decided on your preferred spy app, sign up for free to get started.
Once you are all signed up, the obvious question is how do you link your device with the target device? Well, the answer here depends on the operating system that the target phone is using.
For iOS devices
For iOS, you won’t need to have the target phone or install an app. All you will need is the target phone’s iCloud login details. Access to the iOS device might however be necessary if the iCloud backup is not activated or two-factor authentication is enabled.
While deciding on the best spy app to use, choose one that does not require jailbreaking the target device.
For Android devices
Unfortunately, you cannot spy on someone’s Android phone without installing software on the phone first.
To track someone’s Android phone you must install a tracking app or software into the target Android phone. You must therefore have physical access to the target Android phone as that is the only way to install an app.
No technology has been invented, not just yet, that allows one to track the Android phone without installing software first. If any app claims to do so, it is not trustworthy and should raise red flags.
For the Android phone, most spy apps will work in the background and are therefore not detectable. This feature (Stealth Mode), should be one of the things to consider when deciding on a spy app to use. When an app is in stealth mode, its icon is not displayed on the phone. Once installed, the app deletes its icon and therefore the target person will not know they are being tracked.
The app should also have the option of uninstalling remotely from your account.
While there are so many spy apps out there, we should beware of apps that come with malware and are not secure to use. Look for an app or software that has a safety guarantee, is super-stealthy and reliable.
I have been using Safespy App for a while now and it’s quite amazing how much peace of mind I have had ever since.
