So what exactly is it?
Cell phone spy software in laymen’s term does as you think it would – spies on an intended cell phone to the degree that is required or has been purchased. You may even be shocked at what data can be gathered from the little old cellular device! From text messaging – to internet browsing history – to any files that are stored on the phone.

Is it safe?
Yes, it is entirely safe. I know CIA, FBI comes to mind when you think of spy software of any type. However, you have nothing to worry about, provided that the software purchased is legal. It is also totally safe for the intended cellular device and the monitoring computer that you will use for data feeds. Believe me when I say that there are so many benefits of having cell phone spy software installed, other than just ‘catching a cheating partner’!
So how does it actually work? Getting over the first hurdle…..
Well firstly, you will need to make sure that you purchase a copy of spy software that is compatible with the phone that you intend to monitor. You should also make sure that you’re phone’s OS is ready for the spy software. For example:
- It is imperative that iPhone or iPad devices are Jailbroken.
- Most android devices do not always require to be rooted but a few do.
Once the compatibility check is done, it is time to make sure that the installation is completed correctly.
Be careful, and ensure that all download instructions are followed to the letter. You must also bear in mind that you cannot install cell phone spy software remotely and you will not be able to install if the phone is locked by a password. Therefore, you will need to make sure that you know the password of the device for a successful install.
The importance of the internet connection
No matter how top of the line the cellular device is or how much you pay for your software, the most importance feature (after compatibility of course!) is the connection to the internet. Have you heard of the phrase – without juice no phone shall prosper?! Well if not, please note that this is true along with the fact that any spy software without internet will not send any monitoring reports. The bond between the mobile device and the internet is crucial in ensuring that there are no delays in reporting.
Once installed, what next?
Cell phone spy software works by recording any activity of the cellular device. All recordings are stored in data format on the web servers owned by the software company. Generally, once you sign up to any mobile spy software you are given login details to your own personal portal. Once logged in, you will be able to view all of the types of reports that you have signed up or paid for. It is important to note that only the intended user of the cell phone spy software will have access to these personal reports.
Now comes the easy part – well, at least it should be easy! Because the installation of the mobile spy software is the hard part. This part is all about catering to the user and making sure the user receives their specified reporting. Changes to how reports are produced can be organized within the account settings and once installed, it is highly unlikely that you will need to interfere with the actual phone settings again because everything can be controlled within your personal portal.
It is important to note that reports are also based on the type of software that is being used. Some spy software can be super snazzy and give the user real-time access to pictures or even switch the camera on (front or back) from the user’s PC.
Main causes for unsuccessful installations:
As you will see, getting spy software up and running can be done relatively easily once you have the basic knowhow. However, to sum up what has been written so far, the three major causes that block cell phone spy software to be installed is down to:
- Not following instructions
- Bad internet connection
Get it right the first time! Do your homework before you start, although I guess this is part of your homework, right? This will ensure that you do not lose any money, time, or effort.
