        If the user has an Iphone 5s, you need their APP password correct? like iTunes password to install this?

        • admin Post author

          For iPhones all you need to have is one time physical access to the device, however this device needs to be jailbroken. As an alternative, you can go for non-jailbreak solution, which is even simplier to set up, but offers less features.

    My husband has a i phone and i would like to view all his texts,pics and conversations on my computer,is that possible?

  • cLee Githui

    I am interested in purchasing Mspy software for commercial use. My company Astute Solutions specializes in computer/mobile data recovery. I have been approached alot of times by clients inquiring on how they can monitor their employees and judging from your product i believe its best placed for this job. After i have purchased Mspy App e.g for 3months, can it be installed across multiple users or its only for one user? For call recordings how am i able to listen to them remotely using a PC? If internet on the target phone is temporarily turned-off am i still able to get the information gathered during that lapsed period? If an antivirus is installed onto a phone is it able to install Mspy app?

    Best regards

      Hello Lee,

      Unfortunately these are rather technical questions which only MSpy specialists can answer completely. As far as we know MSpy is able to gather information during offline periods and then transfer it; Antivirus shouldn’t be a problem, however in most cases jailbreak or rooting is required. For more information I’d suggest you to contact their Support center.

      Hope you’ll get all the info you were looking for!

    • admin Post author

      mSpy can be uninstalled from your target device in a hassle-free way. You can find the information on uninstallation process in the Help section of your account.

  • Greg

    is it possible to see download instructions? I have limited access to the target phone (LG G2) and I would like to gauge the ease of installation before purchasing

    • admin Post author

      Unfortunately the trial version of the application is unavailable. To download mSpy you need to follow these 4 steps: Purchasing , Registration, Installation and Rebooting the target device.

  • Dennis

    Does the target phone (Android) password need to be known?

    • admin Post author

      For installation mSpy the target device should be jailbroken. If Android phone has password you need to know it.

  • Sy

      Yes, you may monitor iMessage chats with mSpy, if you will purchase this feature with appropriate program package.

  • Tray

    Is this anonymous or will there be a trace or icon of this application on target phone?

    • admin Post author

      Hey Tray,

      Once it is installed, mSpy works absolutely discreetly, without icons and such.

  • Jodie

    Will it work it the person uses and older phone not a smart phone?

    • admin Post author

      Hi Jodie,

      Unfortunately, it needs one of the supported OS to work on the specific phone. iOS, Android are supported, since they are most common ones. There also was a Blackberry version, but it may not be available anymore

  • krishna

  • sachin

    For seeing instant messages on android mobile, is it must that target mobile should be rooted?

    • admin Post author

      Hi Sachin,

      Regular text messages can be received without Android rooting, but if you want to check Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, Snapchat or email messages, you will need to root it first.

  • Janet

    Hi. I am not very techy. But I need to install sthg like this to read my partners emails and texts and Whatsapp messages. Is it easy to install? Do I need to know his phone password? I don’t have it. He has an iPhone 6.

    • admin Post author

      Hi Janet,

      In order to track Whatsapp messages from another phone, you need to install the app on the jailbroken device, there’s no other ways unfortunately. However, if you have troubles with jailbreaking the device or getting physical access to it, you can try to use non-jailbreak solution which mSpy provides. This option, however, won’t allow you to check Whatsapp, but text messages and emails should still be accessible. For more details and installation instructions please contact mSpy support (they are available 24/7).

    Just a query…is this app would work on iPhone version 8.1.3

    • admin Post author

      Hey Robbie,

      According to their compatibility page –, the latest version of compatible iOS is 8.1.2. However, they say that iOS version doesn’t matter for non-jailbreak solution, so this might be an option for you. I’d suggest to contact their Support Department and ask about 8.1.3 directly

  • Tiffany Taylor

    With the installation process, will i have to open an download file on to my phone in order for this installation to work?? If so is the files hard to open and download and are there any apps i would need on my phone to be able to open these files??

    • admin Post author

      To install MSpy, you’ll need to download their file on the phone you want to track, and then install it (as far as we know, there are no additional software required). Their support managers can lead you through the whole process on every specific device, so don’t hesitate to call them and ask for assistance.
