Are There Any Free Apps to Read the Text Messages from Other Phones Secretly?

You might find many apps that claim to spy on text messages and that too completely free of cost. However, these apps hardly perform the way they are expected to. Many such apps even contain virus which can cause permanent damage to your software. The only way for viewing the text messages is to view it in the absence of the person i.e. when the phone is not with its owner; everything else is mere publicity, and nothing else. You have to spend few bucks if you are genuinely interested in spying on someone.

      Hello Mark,

      You can restore the deleted messages on the target device only in case when a cell phone spy app had been installed before the message was deleted.

      Hello John,

      You should install a cell phone spy on the target device you are going to monitor and later on you track all the information from it in your online account from any device you like.

      1. owner Post author

        Hi, Brandon. Spy apps usually provide a free 3 or 7-day trial to give customers the opportunity to try out the service. After the trial expires, a customer is charged according to the package and the period the system indicated during the trial period (ordinarily, it’s a 1-month Premium).

    Do you have to install on the phone you are wanting to see message from or can it be installed on my phone

    1. owner Post author

      HI, Karen. If you want to read someone’s text messages without their phone, you do need to install the app on the target device and not on yours. You can spy on someone’s phone from your own device or any other, provided there’s an Internet connection. In fact, to track someone’s phone, it’s the Internet that matters rather than the device from which you’re going to do it.

    Do I have to jailbreak the target device in order to get the spy program to work?

    1. owner Post author

      Hi, Stan. At present, phone tracking apps do not ask the jailbreak. They try not to make customers compromise their phones’ safety and Apple’s guidelines. Instead, a user needs iCloud credentials of the target device. Avoid using spy apps that still require the jailbreak.

    Once l get Access to Target phone! What do l do next?

    1. owner Post author

      Hi, Darnella. For Android devices, you need it once to install the app. By accessing the account from it, you hit the Control Panel. There you’ll find the Setup Wizard which walks you through the installation process.
      To clarify, to read texts for free without installing on a target phone is impossible. Although, for iOS, you only need to know iCloud credentials.

    Can I see messages from private apps like whats app

    1. owner Post author

      Hi, Joy. Yes, you can see messages from WhatsApp and other popular instant messengers, such as Viber, Instagram Direct, Snapchat, Viber, Kik, Line, etc. First, make sure the package you pick contains this feature; second, find out whether your device’s operating system anticipates using this package.

    What if I don’t have possession with the target phone

    1. owner Post author

      Hi, Danny. The necessity of physical access depends on the phone’s OS. For iOS, you don’t need one if you know iCloud credentials. For Android, it’s impossible to read someone’s text messages without installing software on their phone, which requires physical access once. Then you track remotely.
