    See Sent and Received SMS or Text Messages
    :
    With this installed, you'll be able to easily view any text or SMS messages sent or received from the phone you're watching. This even works for messages they delete, as you'll get their full message history from the time the app is installed. You'll see what each message says, whether it was sent or received, who sent it, who received it, and when it all happened. Knowing when an employee has been asked to leak sensitive information can help you protect your company. Learning that your child has been invited to a party can let you make sure they aren't sneaking out. Discovering that a loved one has been invited to cheat can let you stop them before any permanent damage has been done.

Hi, I need I see smsbox in my girlfriend, please help me

To view your girlfriend's SMS, you will have to have access to her device. You will need at least 15 minutes to install a spy app so make sure you can get her device for that long without her noticing. There should be a very good reason for installing a spy app on her phone and to justify the expense of a spy app.

If you suspect cheating, the only thing the text messages will do is show you some very painful to read messages. What you should do is speak to her about your doubts and ask for her to give you better reasons to trust her. Be careful because this can seem to be a form of control and put her on the defensive even if she is not cheating.
