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 Text Messages from Another Phone Without Them Knowing

We get it. You want to read someone’s text messages, but you don’t want them to know you’re reading them. If you’re like a lot of parents, your goal is to keep your kids safe, and knowing who they’re talking to and what they’re saying is your ticket to doing that.

But you also want them to trust you. And if they think you’re monitoring them, they’re likely to hide their behavior elsewhere. That’s why we made it easy to read someone’s text messages with mSpy. Through a magical backend system, you can pop in and see everything without them knowing.

Read Someone’s Text Messages Without Installing Software on Their Phone

When you purchase a phone monitoring app like mSpy, it’s easy to check messages from another phone. All you need to do is log in to your Control Panel. From there, you’ll see a list of all text messages on the target phone’s device. Simply click the message you want to see and view it. It’s just like having their phone, without the need to actually have their phone in your hands.

With mSpy, you don’t need to install an app on their phone to read someone’s text messages. You just need to follow the instructions emailed to you when you signed up to gain access to their phone. The benefits of not installing an app on their phone are endless. But the biggest advantage of all is the fact that they’ll have no clue you’re monitoring their phone and that you have the power to see someone else’s text messages.

How to Read Someone’s Text Messages Without Having Their Phone

Up until recently, the only way to see someone else’s text messages was to grab their phone and scroll through it. And that might be OK if you know their password and can access it without them seeing. But if that’s just not possible, you need a solution that works flawlessly.

Enter mSpy. It lets you check messages from another phone, and you don’t even need to have physical access to their phone to pop in and read everything. The magic happens remotely, so it’s easy to see sent and received SMS messages without picking up their device.

How to Get Text Messages from Another Phone Sent to Mine

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could have their text messages forwarded right to their phone? Wouldn’t it be unbelievable if every message that was sent and received was copied to you? Kind of like forwarding an email message to another inbox automatically.

While that might seem like a fantasy, it’s 100% possible with mSpy. While their text messages aren’t automatically forwarded to your phone, they are sent to your mSpy Control Panel. By logging in, you can see everything that was sent and received. Every message. Every pic and video. Everything. If it’s in their text message app, it’s there for you to see.

Go Beyond Just Being Able to See Someone Else’s Text Messages

We know what you’re thinking. Being able to see texts from another phone is great, but what if your kid is using other chat apps? Can you read someone’s text messages if they do most of their communication through a different texting app, like the big social media ones? With mSpy, you sure can. Here’s a snapshot of the kind of app support you can expect with your mSpy subscription.

  • WhatsApp. Kids love WhatsApp because it lets people communicate with each other, no matter what chat app they use and no matter what country they live in. By knowing nothing more than someone’s phone number, you can start texting them without paying any fee associated with text messages (of course, you need to be on Wi-Fi or have a data plan). So if your kid uses WhatsApp, you’ll be able to check messages from another phone and see what they’ve been saying.
  • Snapchat. The popular texting app is huge with kids, primarily because of the disappearing messages feature. Good news, though — mSpy lets you see others text messages send via Snapchat.
  • Facebook Messenger. If they do most of their communication via Facebook Messenger, you’re covered when you use a multi-faceted app that lets you see texts from another phone.
  • Instagram. Not just an app for posting pics, Instagram lets kids chat with one another. If you want to see texts from another phone that were sent through Instagram, you’ve got support with mSpy.

There’s also full support for Viber, Kik, Telegram, Skype, and Tinder. It’s all accessible from your Control Panel, so you can see texts from another phone, regardless of what they’re using to text.

Stay Away from Apps That Promise Free Text Message App

There’s nothing wrong with an app that offers a free trial to read someone’s text messages. But if an app is promising you to read their texts for free, forever, without ever asking you to pay for anything, there’s a good chance the app is spyware. That means once you install it, it could do harm to your device, including your PC where you install the backend system, or the phone that you’re installing the text message monitoring app on. Instead, always choose a reputable app that you can trust.

What’s more, if an app claims to let you read someone’s text messages by only knowing their phone number, you’re being scammed. An app that lets you type someone’s phone number into a system and suddenly intercept every text message just doesn’t exist.
