How to look into my boyfriend's phone without touching his phone and letting him know?

I need to track my boyfriend's SMS and phone calls, but I can't take his phone or let him know.


Unfortunately it is not possible to track your boyfriend's phone without having access to it. This is because, in order to track anyone's cellphone, you need to have the following things:

  1. 1
    Access to the phone
    You need to be able to install a cellphone tracking app.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    The ability to install a spy app
    This means you need to be able to bypass any lock screens or other PIN codes that stop you from getting into the phone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    A third party tool to download tracking and location information
    Once you have an application installed, you will need another device to be able to track his location to see where he is, and who he is talking to.

If you don't have these things, then you will unfortunately not be able to track your boyfriend's mobile device. We have an article that provides an overview of tracking cellphones and spying on people. You can click here to read it.

Can I read WhatsApp chat without touch target phone for free?

I am a housewife can I read WhatsApp chat on my phone without touch target phone


There is not a reliable free way to target his phone. An app like Auto Forward will target his phone but it costs around $60. If you really need to monitor his WhatsApp, you will have to pay for that app. Especially if you can't physically access his phone.

My husband is gone for a month. How can I track his phone?

I'm trying to see his messages and calls and any inappropriate websites. Is there a way to do this without paying or having his phone?


Unfortunately, there is no way to spy on your husband's phone or track his messages and calls while he is away and you do not have access to the device. There are options you can put on his phone for future use, as discussed elsewhere in this Q&A, or you can take his phone when he comes back, and attempt to recover deleted messages. Depending on what sort of device he has (Android or iPhone) you may be able to recover his phone messages or internet logs.

Most of the paid applications have free or trial versions, so you can install them and benefit from short term use, without needing to pay. However, as a general rule, you only get what you pay for with cellphone tracking programs. Most of the free applications are not very good, and some are actually dangerous in their ability to steal personal information and risk bank or credit card details.

If you choose a free application, use it with extreme caution.

My girlfriend SMS without taking phone?

WhatsApp SMS on my girlfriend

Apps like Auto Forward can target a phone without touching it. There may be more apps that do this soon because it is becoming necessary for spy apps to adapt to bypassing passcodes on phones.

More questions and answers

Can I see my boyfriends messages with looking at his phone?

I think my man is cheating. So he does not want me to read his phone texts. How can I see them?

You need a cellphone spy app. Specifically, one that will let you spy on his messages remotely, from a computer, or another mobile device. There are a number of these applications available on the market, though they do not all work the same, and some are markedly better than others.

We have reviewed several, one of which is the My Spy (mSpy) phone tracking application. You can click here to read the details, and see if the application has features that are of interest to you.

Can I monitor my boyfriend's iPhone, without having access to his phone?

My partner works overseas. I'm wondering is there a way that I can monitor his iPhone, for text messages, emails etc, back to my iPhone/Computer?

You will have to use an app like Auto Forward because your partner is overseas. A friend of mine did this to look into someone her mother thought she had met. It was a phishing scheme and the spy app proved it by giving my friend several other people and messages from this person's phone. It worked overseas so it also should work for you.

Is there a free online thing that is 100% free to check his phone?

I think he might be cheating on me but don't want to get mad till I'm 100% sure of this. I need to find a free thing online that I don't have to pay for.

None of the reputable apps are 100% free. There are some apps that have been suggested above that are free but use with extreme caution as many are just phishing scams.



Apps like Auto Forward target phones just using the person's cell number.

Is this compatible with Verizon iPhones?

Need to know if this is only for T-Mobile users or if this can be used for Verizon iPhones?

These spy apps work for any Android or iOS supported phone. Companies like T-Mobile and Verizon have family tracking plans though that have a monthly fee.

Husband reading my text and emails, but on his Android?

How is it possible that my husband receives, in real time, text messages or emails that I have sent from my phone or computer? He said it's to one specific person. Is there an app or a way to link phone numbers or email addresses so he can read them without knowing my password? I'm so frustrated and feel sick that he would even think to "spy" on me.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There absolutely are apps that can do this. PC and phones can be tracked together through mSpy for instance. You should install anti-spyware on your phone and run malwarebytes on your PC. He also could have just put a keylogger program on your PC which would have given him your password without putting a spy app on your phone.

How can I find out who is my husband talking to daily?

My husband has a work phone through his job. I know he deletes messages, is there a way for me to see who he is talking to. This is a basic sprint phone, where you can't download any apps.

No, you would need at least Android operating system and also because it is a phone provided by the employer, it may be illegal to use a spy app.

Hi, I have weird thing to ask?

My boyfriend has been talking to his friends about me in a bad way. I know for sure, but now he wants me to meet them and I asked him what have you said and he gets really mad....something is up right?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You have nothing to worry about. Guys talk smack to impress their friends and that is probably what he was doing. He is just not mature enough yet to realize that this gets him nowhere in life. Go meet his friends and prove everything he may have said to be untrue. It is a good sign that he wants you to meet his friends.

Is there such a thing as seeing the texts of my boyfriend, he is getting from other people he is sending to people?

I think he deletes messages because I can not find his previous doing for that day

Apps like mSpy will show you his text messages even if he deletes them. He could just have an auto delete function set up so that he does not keep his phone cluttered with messages.

Hi, My husband of 18 years is hiding his phone away for a while now and he gets very upset when I ask him about it! Every time I work late, my children is telling me that has been on his phone the entire time I've been out. Is there any way that I can see what he is up to?

I need to know if there is any way that I can see my husband's phone records, sites, SMS, WhatsApp and all deleted items, please

A reputable spy app will give you all of the details you are requesting. If you can't physically install an app on his phone then you should look into using an app like Auto Forward.

My soon to be husband has cheated in the past just don't want to make a mistake again?

Cheater in the past, just want to know its not happening again

You have agreed to marry him and have forgiven him of his past behavior. Use a spy app cautiously because if he finds out it could destroy your relationship. Make sure there are other signs present of cheating before you install any app.

I know my husband is cheating but I need proof for the annulment, he hides his phone and its always with him even when he goes to the bathroom, how can I get the info from his phone without him knowing it even if it is not free?

I have seen a video on his phone where he was sending it to someone, he deleted it, was speaking Spanish to some girl. I have tried: Nothing I just found this out. I think it was caused by: I don't know
