what our customers say

“My child’s school is quite far from home and we need to be sure she’s ok on her way back from school. So we found out about this geofencing thing and gave it a shot. We were surprised it worked ‘cause once she decided to go to some store with her friend, we were informed that she has entered district we marked on the map as dangerous. Helped a lot, especially for such busy parents as us.”

“She wouldn’t tell me anything and would be angry with me for no reason. Constantly on her phone and wouldn’t let me even touch it. mSpy app was basically my last clue. When I got to her SnapChat I broke in tears, my girl was about to run away with this guy she had never met in real life. Cannot thank enough.”

“Why did I decide to use mSpy? Simple, I am not gonna sit and wait for something to happen. I read about Amanda Todd and other kids. Seriously, my son’s safety costs way more than $30.”

“I couldn’t believe my eyes what kids post on social media, such mean, hateful messages it broke my heart. My daughter is a kind and gentle girl, I am so glad I could catch these haters and stop the abuse.”

“I saw some calls annoyed my teen daughter. She got upset every time somebody called her. I know my kid so I needed to sort things out. So I got this mSpy app for identifying that mysterious guy. What I saw blew my mind: he literally bullied her, sent awful emojis, and said he’s gonna track her after school. We met up with parents and talked the whole thing out.”

How to Read Someone’s Instagram Messages without Getting Caught

It’s no secret that Instagram is one of the most popular social media apps on the planet. In fact, it became so popular that Facebook purchase them. If you can’t beat them, join them. Or buy them, more specifically. The reason for the popularity? Young people just aren’t into Facebook and Instagram tends to be more about sharing the moment and gaining followers, not connecting with friends and letting them peek into your life.

But there are hidden dangers on Instagram, which is why many parents have turned to Instagram activity trackers like mSpy. It lets you find out what they’re doing and saying on Instagram. And it lets you do that without being caught. mSpy works in stealth mode, so they’ll never know that you’re reading their private Instagram conversations or monitoring their activity. It’s one powerful app and if you’re a parent, you should definitely never be without it.

Understanding the Instagram Activity Tracker

We know what you’re thinking. Is this even possible? Can I really see someone’s Instagram DMs? The simple answer is absolutely. It’s easy to do when you’ve installed the mSpy Instagram tracker. Once you’re set up, you’ll be able to see their conversations, including messages they’ve sent and received. And not just texts. Pics and videos too. If it’s in their private Instagram conversations, you’ll be able to see it.

How to Track Instagram Activity in Just a Few Steps

Are you ready to find out what makes an Instagram tracker so ideal for keeping tabs on your kids? Here’s how to get started:

  • Create an account using an Instagram activity tracker, like mSpy.
  • In the case of mSpy, you’ll receive a welcome package by email. It’ll confirm your purchase and provide you the necessary links to access your Control Panel. You’ll also receive your login information.
  • Follow the guidelines in your welcome email to install the Instagram online tracker on your target device (presumably your kid’s phone) and activate the Instagram feature on their phone. You might want to take advantage of the keylogger feature (baked right into mSpy) to get the information required.

Here’s What You Can Do With the mSpy Instagram Tracker

  • View the text messages they send and received through Instagram chat. Yup, with mSpy, you can see what they’ve typed to other people and what pics and videos they’ve sent privately.
  • See who they talk to. Besides seeing the messages they send, you’ll also be able to view contact details of the people they are chatting with.
  • See their location details. This information isn’t publicly available to just anyone searching Instagram. But it’s widely available to users of the mSpy app.

How to Find Someone’s Location on Instagram

You saw their pic. Now you want to know where on earth they are. That’s where an Instagram activity tracker comes in. When you install one on your child’s device, you’ll get all the information you need to know where they are and where a particular picture was taken. It gets better. mSpy goes beyond just location tracking for Instagram. You also get a location tracker that works even when they’re not using Instagram. You can even set geofences, so if they enter or leave a specific location, you’ll know about it. It’s a great way to make sure they aren’t heading somewhere dangerous or meeting up with people you don’t approve of.

Instagram Activity Tracker Questions You Were Afraid to Ask

Are there really dangers on Instagram?

Believe it or not, Instagram can be an incredibly dangerous place. Just look at the nature of the social media app. It’s all about sharing pictures and making new connections. Predators have been known to initiate chats on Instagram. And once they get a conversation going, they can trick their victims into handing over personal information, compromising information, or explicit pictures and videos. That’s why many parents are finding it necessary to have an Instagram online tracker as part of their parental control and monitoring solution.

Will a private profile stop people from contacting my kids?

Unfortunately no. With a profile set to private, others can’t see their pics. But that doesn’t stop them from sending them private messages or sending a follow request. And kids are quick to add strangers to Instagram if their profile pic looks interesting. What’s more, if the person sending the request has a public profile, your kid might be more likely to approve their request. And once they’re approved, they can see everything on your kid’s Instagram feed and even initiate a private chat.

If my kid’s profile is private, can I still see their activity?

You can if you install the mSpy Instagram tracker. It doesn’t make a difference if their profile is private or public. You’ll still have access to everything going on in their Instagram world, including the private Instagram conversations they’re having with their friends, and more importantly people you don’t know about.

Can’t I just ask my kid to see their phone?

Of course you can. As a parent, you have the power to take away their phone or, at the very least, request to see what’s on their device at any given time. But kids like to be private, even if they’re not doing anything wrong. By asking your kid to see their phone, you’re telling them that you don’t trust them. Sure, your intentions might be to keep them safe. But kids (especially teenagers), see that as a violation of privacy and a major lack of trust. That’s why more and more parents are trying to understand how to read someone’s Instagram messages. And with mSpy, it’s easy.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just follow my kids on Instagram?

You’re than welcome to follow your kids on social media (assuming they’re willing to approve your request). But doing so only lets you see what everyone else sees. In a nutshell, it’s the pics they share and that’s about it. To see their real Instagram activity, you need a proper Instagram tracker. The best ones go beyond just showing you what they’ve been doing on Instagram. The top apps let you see the messages they’ve been sending and receiving through the popular social media app.

Do I really need this? I don’t think my kids use Instagram to chat.

We get it. Not everyone uses Instagram for private conversations. Some people just use the photo sharing social media app to share pics and see what other people are sharing. But when it comes to chatting, they prefer to use things like WhatsApp, Skype, or good old-fashioned text message. That’s why our Instagram online tracker does way more than just let you see someone’s Instagram DMs. It also lets you see their other conversations in other social media apps. Isn’t that smart?
