Edited by Friday, Eng, Train Wreck, Alma and 1 other
Like most spy phone applications, mSpy does require a little setup. If you have followed our tutorial on how to set up mSpy, or if you are someone who has simply decided to purchase the application, this tutorial will help you get started. We will discuss which emails to look for in your inbox, what information those emails contain that you will need, and how to actually log into the system for your first time.
Once logged into the system we will go over the pop-ups you can close or skip, and then we'll show you how to log out of mSpy. Obviously, if you're spying on someone's phone, you don't want them to stumble across that information on your system. This is why you should always log out. Once you've learned how to log in and out of mSpy and have your basic account setup finished, you'll want to visit our tutorial on how to get started setting up the first phone you will spy on with mSpy, you can spy on Android phones and tablets, spy on iPhones and iPads, or spy on non-jailbroken iPhones and iPads. Don't forget to visit the end of this tutorial for links to apps you can spy on too.
Check Email for Login Details
- 2The first PayPro Global email you receive will be an overview of your account and any payments you have made. It will also inform you of any associated expiration or renewal dates. In this case, we have signed up for a free seven-day no obligation trial of mSpy. According to this email, at the end of this trial, we will be billed approximately $70 for one month of service. Note that this email will also have login details for you to access customer support.
- 4The last PayPro Global message you receive will simply include details of your purchase. This will include the price, invoice specifics, contact information both for email and phone, and a login and password for accessing the control panel. This control panel is used to manage information including credit cards. If you need to change or update credit cards, make sure you view our tutorial on how to do that. Make sure you also have your login details from this email ready, as you'll need them to update credit card information.
- 5You will also have an email from mSpy. The mSpy email will either include login details for your paid account or login details for your free no obligations seven-day trial. In our case, we have elected to use the free seven-day trial of mSpy, as our email shows us. We have blocked out our own login, password, and customer ID information, as we use this account. However, you can still see those fields listed in the email message, which is where your details will appear. Just look in your own email from mSpy and you will see the information there. The login will be the email address which you signed up with, the password will be a randomly generated string of characters from mSpy, and your customer ID will be one that mSpy has assigned to you. To get started, click on the green 'Login' button a the bottom of this email. This will open a web page to log in, which is discussed in the next section of this tutorial.
Log In, Setup, and Log out of mSpy
- 1Once you have clicked the green 'Login' button from the mSpy email you should have received, you will see a white panel on the right-hand side of your screen. This panel has a space for your email and password. After entering your email and password, you will click the blue 'Login' button on the bottom right-hand side. This will log you into mSpy where you will be immediately taken to the mSpy dashboard.
- 4When we begin setting up the phone you plan to spy on, the first thing we will need to do is select our target device. Depending on your target device you will need to select from the different options we have highlighted here. We will discuss these in more detail in our tutorials specific to each of the device types you can choose, and the unique installation process that is required for each.
- 5In order to log out of mSpy you will navigate up to the top right side of your screen. Once there you will click the string of numbers in red, and then select 'Sign Out' from the menu that pops up. Once you click 'Sign Out' you will be signed out of mSpy. Then you can close your browser window and no one will know that you were logged in.
Things You Can Spy on With mSpy
There are a number of apps and activities you can spy on with mSpy. We have created several tutorials to show you how to spy on these things, and are constantly updating our list to include more. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back to see when we have added a new tutorial. Check the list below to see what you can do.
- Keep in mind that your mSpy account time is used up whether you are logged in or not. This only matters if you have a free seven day trial, but it is important to know. If you sign up for mSpy one day but don't log in until five days later, you will only have two days of free trial left.
- It's a good idea to always log into mSpy with a private browser window, or incognito mode. If you aren't sure how to do this, please check our VisiHow tutorials on the topic.
