Questions and Answers

Hi, can I read wife's text messages without getting her phone?

Can you help mate? That would be good.


Unfortunately, you will need to get your wife's phone in order to install a spy application so you can read her text messages. Without physically holding her phone, there is no way for you to read her text messages through a spy application. If you ever get a hold of her phone, you can read the VisiHow article below to learn about different spy applications that are available and how to use them.

How can I read my wife cell messages for free?

I want to know if she is cheating


Some of the good spy apps will offer free trials. Currently, TruthSpy is offering a 48 hour free trial. Do not trust any of the always "free" spy apps because those either are unreliable or they are just phishing for people to fill out surveys and then give you a bogus activation key.

Software for spying and how to apply it in my phone

You install the spy app on their phone and then you will be able to access a Control Panel from your phone. Usually, you get a link to the Control Panel in an email so that you can check it from any internet capable device. Compare several to choose which one provides what you need, can be easily installed and is within your budget. Spy apps like mSpy and FlexiSpy are not super expensive and easily installed.

How can I access my boyfriend's messages without him knowing?

I feel that he's cheating on me.

All of the spy apps mentioned on this page run in the background in stealth mode. He will not notice the app is there unless he knows what to look for in terms of signs of monitoring or if he has any anti-spyware. You should try to install the app when he will not be around his phone for at least 10 minutes. This way if he does have an anti-spyware app you can disable it.

How can I read the messages of my husband's old smart number?

I want to read all the text messages from a girl which he claims is just a friend. I have tried: None

You can only read current messages once a spy app has been installed. If this is his older phone he may have hard reset the phone which means the messages are gone forever. Since you think he has possibly cheated before, a spy app will allow you to see if he is doing anything illicit now. Browsing history, SMS, social media and call logs are just some of the standard features offered in the spy apps mentioned on this page.
