How to spy on a cell phone remotely for free?

spy cell phone remotelyThere can be many reasons to spy on someone’s phone. Parents need ways to protect their children. Spouses can have doubts regarding their partner’s faithfulness. Managers need to monitor their employee’s phones to avoid information disclosure and make sure they are in the right place.

But how to spy without attracting too much attention?

The best way to keep yourself informed is to install a spy app. The main benefit of spying apps is that it runs in a stealth mode. That is the only real way to spy on a phone remotely if you do not want the phone’s user to know.

Can you use a spy app without target phone?

In most cases, you need to install the software on the target phone manually, which means that you need to go to the official website of this software developer. First, create a username and password. Next, buy a yearly or monthly plan. After, download the app to your target device. Now you can spy on that device wherever it is. All information will be sent to an online dashboard or tracking app on your phone.

There is one exception, and it only works for iOS. If you have your target phone’s Apple ID and password, you can track it directly from iCloud. The app that can do this is mSpy. Here is the only way to install a spy app without the target phone:

  1. Go to the mSpy official website.
  2. Create an account for non-jailbroken iPhones.
  3. Register your target device’s Apple ID and password.
  4. Monitor the device from the mSpy dashboard.

Will Google phone number search help?

A google phone number search can be useful if you wish to see which country or state you have been called. It won’t tell you the exact location of the device.
