2 Ways to Install mSpy on Non-Jailbroken iPhone

mSpy currently provides 2 installation methods for iPhone devices without jailbreak, namely: iCloud sync and Wi-Fi Sync. Please note that the list of features will differ depending on your chosen method. Before you move to the installation method, you need to get a subscription first:

  1. Go to and create an account.
  2. Choose the type of device you want to monitor (iOS in our case).
  3. Select a subscription plan: 1-month, 3 or 12 months.
  4. Complete the purchase.

Now you can start the installation process. Check our video or read the step-by-step instructions below.

How to Install mSpy on iPhone Using iCloud Sync?

If you know your loved ones well enough and have a trusting relationship, iCloud Sync is the easiest method to install mSpy on an iPhone remotely. Before you start, you need your loved one’s iCloud credentials and physical access to their phone to check the confirmation code.

Also, make sure the backup is available on their phone, which allows seeing all the needed data. To install mSpy via iCloud Sync, follow these steps:

  1. After purchasing a subscription, choose the iOS device as a targeted one, then select the iCloud Sync installation method. You’ll be redirected to the new window.
  2. Log in to your account using mSpy credentials.
  3. To connect your loved one’s device enter their iCloud credentials.
  4. Once done, we’ll send 2 notifications. The first one is sent to iCloud’s email address, saying that there was a new login. The second one is sent to the target phone and contains a 6-digit code for 2FA confirmation.
  5. Enter the code from the target device to your mSpy account to complete the linking process.

Note that collecting information can take 10-20 minutes, depending on the amount of data on the device. Once done, you’ll get access to the data from your loved one’s phone, including:

  • Contacts
  • Notes
  • Calendar events
  • Photos
  • Emails (in case it is syncing with iCloud)
  • Files
  • Reminders
  • Tasks

How to Install mSpy on iPhone Using Wi-Fi Sync?

Wi-Fi Sync is another mSpy installation iPhone solution. For this method to work, you need physical access to the targeted device. Let’s see how it works:

  1. Install the additional Wi-Fi sync app included in your subscription on your Mac or PC.
  2. Connect the target iPhone to your Mac or PC via the USB cable.
  3. Let the app back up the data from the targeted phone. Once done, you’ll see this data in your personal account.
  4. Disconnect the iPhone and enjoy monitoring over Wi-Fi.

To back up data for the next time, you don’t need to connect a targeted phone to your computer. But please remember that it’s possible only if the targeted iPhone and PC/Mac are connected to the same local Wi-Fi.

Once installed, you will be able to monitor the following information right from your dashboard:

  • WhatsApp messages
  • Text messages
  • Call logs
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Contact list
  • Notes
  • LINE
  • Viber
  • Browser history
  • Reminders
  • Calendar

  • I have a iPhone my wife has a android. I have no access to her phone. Does this mean I can’t use this software Is there anyway other than physical access her phone

    • Hi Paul,

      This is a parenting app. It is illegal to track someone over 18 without their consent. And yes, you need to have access to your child’s phone. It takes a few minutes to install.

  • I am tracking my child’s phone and connected through iCloud acct, but there is 0 information all day. Why?!

    • This could happen if you did not connect the target phone correctly. Please contact our support and they will gladly lead you through the process.

  • I do not plan on installing the app on the targeted phone. I plan on using iCloud credentials and have it sent to my phone. Once I have installed and verified the account thru iCloud will I need to do it again at some point? Will it send any type of notification to the targeted iPhone in the future? I will have access to the phone once. If I have the app /download on my phone will I need to sign in each time or anytime in the future (which will send notifications to the targeted phone)

    • Dear Jenna,

      I hope this message finds you well.

      If the user will change the iCloud password, you would need to enter a new password and new verification would be required.

  • Hi – do I need to log into the iCloud every time I want to monitor my child’s phone? I’ve tried it twice and on both occasions it asked me to insert credentials then the person n. I won’t always have access to the phone , so assumed it would only require one log in. Any advice ?

    • Hello Tim,
I hope this message finds you well.

      Upon initial installation, a verification code will be required. Subsequently, notifications will no longer be necessary.

  • For the “mSpy on iPhone Using Wi-Fi Sync” method, do we need to unlock the phone to make it work ? How many minutes (~) take the app for the first backup ?

    • Hello.
      Thank you for your question.

      To proceed, the device must be unlocked.

      The initial backup is contingent upon the amount of information stored on the target phone.

    • Hello.
      Thank you for your questions.

      There is an option to install without a computer, using the iCloud information. Access to the device is needed.

  • Where does it back up the files to on your computer when doing the wifi sync? I did that and now my computer is almost out of space. I need to delete that backup but don’t know where it is stored. Thank you.

    • Hi Michael!

      Thank you for reaching out!

      Please note, that if you delete a backup – you will lose all the collected information. The backup is stored in the installation folder. We recommend contacting our online chat support so they can assist you and show you the direction.

  • Does the phone need to be backed up to work, it hasn’t been backed up since 2022 and I am seeing nothing.
