Questions and Answers

Can I put a free, invisible app on my boyfriend's phone from my phone that will let me read his texts?


Yes, there is an application called "SMS Tracker" which can be downloaded to his phone from the application store. This application will be invisible to him and will prevent him from being able to see it after you download the application onto his phone. Additionally, you must download the application and set up a profile on the device you will be monitoring him from before downloading it onto his phone.

This application will remain silent and invisible for the entire time that it is on the person's phone while you are monitoring.

Here is the link to the website so that you can view the other things you can do on the application such as GPS, call details and email spying as well.


Keep in mind that this application is for Android only and is not available through iTunes. For this application to work with the iPhone or the iPad, you will need to jailbreak the operating system.

What is the best app I can use to see what my boyfriend texts without him knowing?


There are paid applications which claim to be able to do this, although not too many people can testify that it actually works. Most of these are also rather expensive. Some of them are worth about in a month and you have to pay continuously as long as you're subscribed to it.

Also, keep in mind that most smartphones protect the privacy of users. The process to bypass security becomes more and more difficult.

How can I track my boyfriend's text messages without having to download a software on his phone?

I want to see who my boyfriend has been texting, but I can't get a hold of his phone.


The way that spy applications work is that you have to install the application to his device since there is no way to remotely track his device without going into his phone and downloading the app on the device first to begin tracking.

At this time, grabbing his phone and downloading an app to track his messages is the only way to see who he is texting. If you cannot get your hands on the phone, then you cannot track him, meaning you would have to find another way to view his messages such as below:

Hello, I need help trying to put a tracking device or something. Because I need to know if my boyfriend is cheating on me?

I need a track to Facebook, call logs, messages, etc.

A spy app will track his location information as well as monitor all other data from his phone. If you have a suspicion that he is cheating you should, at least, give him a chance to add some clarity to your doubts before you install a spy app on his phone.

I think my boyfriend is using a secret app to text another woman. I also get a text from a random number saying things like, "I'm heading over" do you think my phone is interfering with their conversation?

What does it mean when I get a random text from a random # saying things like "I'm heading over" right when I think he's texting someone

Sounds like he is texting you by accident possibly. Another reason though could be that someone has your number and thinks they are texting someone else. I doubt there is any cross interference because if he was using an app on his phone that was also on your phone with the same account and password on both phones, you would see everything messaged and not just one or two snippets.

My husband has an HTC phone like mine but says he inactivated the internet after I kept finding things on it. I know he didn't, it's just incognito. How do I put an app on his phone if I can't open his internet?

Need to know how to put an app on a phone that has internet hidden

Use an app that has keylogging software like mSpy or Auto Forward. This will give you browsing history as well as any logins or passwords he may be using.

I found out that my husband is texting and sending pictures to a female. He deletes the texts and pictures before he comes home. Is there an app I can use so I can determine what's being said?

I found out that my husband is texting and sending pictures to a female. He deletes the texts and pictures before he comes home. Is there an app I can use so I can determine what's being said?

Most spy apps will not only give you what he texts but apps like mSpy can record cell phone conversations. All of the apps will also show you any pics that are on the phone and in messaging.

I suspect my husband is cheating, and he takes his cell phone everywhere. So I don't know if I can install anything on his phone because it always stays with him. How can I get the program installed?

Is this program free? If not how to install it?

You would have to use a program like Auto Forward and it is not free. It does allow you to in just input his phone number when you set up the account and you will get access to everything that happens on the phone.
