Questions and Answers

Install cellphone spyware without access to target phone?


Having access to the target phone is the only way that you will be allowed to download the spyware to the device successfully. Without having the target phone the user must download the software to their own phone to help you to monitor their device, which is a rare occurrence.

Most of the software online that advertises that you do not need to actually have the target device are false. Most of them will make you pay for their software and then tell you that you need to download the software to the target phone. The only thing that can be done remotely is the monitoring, which is set up after you have downloaded the software to the target phone. So, be careful when you see remote monitoring or spying for they are talking about this time of process.

How can I track the opened websites and social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) on my husband's iPhone?

I need to track my husband's iPhone 6+. I need to view his text messages, WhatsApp, messenger, and all similar applications, in addition to social media accounts such as Twitter (he has a legal one which opens automatically and another one which I cannot access), Facebook, etc., also, I need to have screenshots of every webpage he opens and want to know everything he deletes

FlexiSpy can be used on the phone without it being jailbroken and will give you every little thing he does on his phone. There is a log to show every web page as well as all social media account activity. Because you need such a thorough monitoring of a device, you will need to use a paid app. Make sure that you read the fine print on a paid app to see if the phone still needs to be jailbroken.

Hi, I need to locate the position of my husband's phone - can you assist please?

He will not download any picture at the moment. He does not answer. The phone just rings and rings but see he has been on WhatsApp but is now not opening his WhatsApp to make me think that he has left his phone somewhere on charge. Please assist me as I really need to get to the bottom of where he keeps going and not answering my calls. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated and will change my life

Purchase Auto Forward. You will within three minutes gain the location of his phone as well as any data that is on the phone like his WhatsApp activity. All you need is his cellphone number.


I need a spyware for an iPhone. The iPhone is not jailbroken?

My boyfriend iPhone is not jailbroken, is there a spyware I can use?

mSpy currently can access the phone if it is not jailbroken as long as you have an Apple ID. Spying on your boyfriend can be illegal so make sure first so that if you get caught you do not get legally charged.

How can I see his texts and call log and data usage?

My husband is gone right now and I couldn't download an app on his phone, how can I see his texts call log data usage and GPS on his Android phone without an app. I would like to see it from my Android netbook laptop cause I don't have a phone, I know his passcode but he deletes everything

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There are apps that can be used to remotely spy on a target phone. Auto Forward just needs his cell number to begin monitoring him. You will be able to access the data on your laptop.

How to see SMS text online for free without installing on target phone?

Boyfriend is cheating, how can I see his text for free without installing anything on his cellphones - just see online by cell number?

There are no good free apps that can give you his text messages for free without him knowing. You will have to pay for an app that can target the phone remotely. If you think he is cheating, then why stick around instead of ending the relationship? Catching him in the act will only cause you more pain. Make a clean break and walk away because once the trust is gone, there is no relationship.

I think he's cheating on me? And he only wants sex?

He didn't text me. I'm always the one who text him first before he text.

Many men are not texters. I for instance usually have to text my husband first unless he wants to speak and knows I am in a situation where I can't talk to him right away. As for the sexual pressure, his sex drive is most likely higher than yours but be careful because men and women can fall into a trap where the only way they measure that a person cares for them is through sexual desire. If he does not want to spend time with you other than having sex, either he is not interested in a relationship or he is just one of those people that do not quite know how to be in a relationship just yet.

I need help to acquire details for an iPhone and pics and texts and emails?

He has an iPhone and I have no access or pass codes to anything on cellphone or emails. I need to see his texts and pics and emails and Facebook if there is anything that might be able to help me. I have never done anything like this and its what I need to do at this point and time and very necessary. Please help me

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There are spy apps but right now the only one that works without jailbreaking the phone is mSpy. It will only have minimal details until you can get a chance to jailbreak the iPhone.

Want to track my unstable brother?

My brother is unstable and I would like to know when he is in my area

Auto Forward helped my friend find her homeless brother and hopefully using an app like that will help you. The app just needs a cell number to begin collecting data like location. Unfortunately, he may have the phone off or not be connected to WiFi which makes installing a remote spy app more difficult.

I need to see for myself for once and all if my husband is talking with other women or has been?

He has convinced me to push off our divorce through his manipulation and control 3 times and I am feeling like a fool...I just don't know that this will give me what I need.

Well, a spy app will give you proof that is still speaking to other women. Marriage is difficult and he seems to want to keep the marriage going since he has stalled the divorce three times. If you can not trust him, there is no reason for the divorce to not proceed. A marriage does not work without trust. Unfortunately, there is still the need to monitor him but hopefully, there is nothing there and you can begin to renew your marriage with the knowledge that he is not cheating.

GPS location only wanted, no texts or calls. Also no access to phone. How to do it?

I don't want to track texts or calls. Just the GPS location. He has iOS and I have Windows phone. I don't have access to his location because we already split up but I am preparing him a surprise and a special night to make it up. How can I know the location without actual access into his hardware? Thank you.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

This is borderline stalking. If you can't surprise him at a regular spot that he frequents or at work, you should message him to meet you for the surprise. You have broken up and trust me if he finds out that you got his location by using a spy app there will be no reconciliation.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Instead, you should try to text him and see if he will meet up with you. If he denies you the chance then you should move on. It can be hard to accept a break up but it is for the best if he does not want to meet with you. In the future, if you still can't get over him, you can contact one of his friends to pass on a message or his family member and if you do not have any of those people in your contacts, you definitely do not know him well enough to track his location to "surprise" him.

How to spy on my husband mobile and trace the SMS which he sends?

Something is wrong with him

I want to spy on his mobile without him knowing

You can choose one of the spy applications on the market: mSpy, FlexiSpy, SurePoint Spy, etc. All of them are capable of spying on SMS messages, but FlexiSpy has more supported devices and SurePoint Spy requires only a one-time payment. After you have made your choice, ask your husband to give you his mobile to install a spyware program. If he refuses, you cannot install it. If he agrees (you can give him any conditions so that he agrees), you can just take his unlocked phone, pay for the application (usually by clicking "BUY NOW" on the web site), and install it. Some spy programs may require you to root Android devices (click here to do it) or jailbreak iOS devices (click here to do it). After the installation, you will be able to monitor the messages from your computer of phone.

I have a feeling my fiance is cheating on me but she claims she is not, we live in different cities, how can I get proof. As of lately I don't see her last seen on WhatsApp anymore, she claims she has blocked and deleted the person I accused her of, how can I get the physical proof

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If she says she has blocked the person and you are planning on marrying her this is the time to trust her. Long distance relationships are hard but she has told you that she is not having an affair and that she has deleted the person that you suspected so give her the benefit of the doubt. If she wanted to be with this person she would be rather than being in a relationship with someone in another city.

I am going through a hard time right now. I believe my wife is cheating on me and we have a two year old together. I need some closure?

Can I somehow view my wife's call text and pictures if she has a Huawei pre-paid

Many of the spy apps that you can trust like mSpy will work on her device. You can, however, try to access her phone while she is sleeping to see if anything is there. Here are some more VisiHow articles that will help you to determine if she is cheating:

I suspect my husband is cheating on me, he is always on WhatsApp?

I suspect my husband is cheating on me, he is always on WhatsApp. Now he is using an iPhone with fingerprint lock meaning I cannot install anything on the phone if needed to track his WhatsApp message. Is there a way to track him remotely from my PC

An app like Auto Forward will bypass a fingerprint lock.

I need to track a number that doesn't have an app installed?

My step children received a call from their mother a couple of days ago who left them a couple of years ago saying she is in the hospital 2 hours away and is dying of cancer. She begged them to come see her but said they needed a password to be allowed any access to her. They all took the day off to go do that today but she has not released a password and the hospital cannot confirm or deny if she is there. Is it possible to track her number to see if she is there or not?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Well, you could use a spy app like Auto Forward but she still has not released the password. Can your step children contact other family members of hers to see if she really is in the hospital? She may have been too ill to get the chance to put them on the list for the password.

We would like to know where my husband's ex wife is, so we DON'T go where she is. We do NOT want to bump into her. We are in the same town and she is confrontational and CRAZY?

We would just like to see where she is so we can avoid bumping into her. We have the same pediatricians for our kids, use the same pool lesson place and local community pools. I find myself avoiding places with my kids because I don't want to bump into her.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Tracking her this way is most likely illegal in your area. You could take the chance and put a spy app like Auto Forward to monitor her phone but it seems like you are going through a lot to avoid her already. Be the bigger person and take your kids to the places they need to be. Move to another town. Get a restraining order against her if you fear for your safety. One thing your husband can do is request a child welfare mediation through the courts where he can request a schedule of these places that both you and her children frequent to avoid running into her. Unfortunately you living in fear this way is exactly what she wants.
