How Spy Apps Work?

Using a spy app is pretty straightforward and easy. Generally, when installing a spy app, first sign up for an account with the spy app service provider. If they charge a subscription fee, then you will have to make payment first too.

After registration and payment, install the spy app on your devices first. It can be on your PC, tablet, or your phone. Then sign in with your login credentials.

The next thing to do is to have the spy app installed on your target’s devices. Instead of calling it “installation”, they call it rooting. So when you wish to have your target devices rooted, first get your hands on the device you wish to track. Rooting the target devices shouldn’t take too long to set up.

If you wish to root the target device remotely, then you may not be able to access the full data you are looking for. Most times spy apps need you to get the device physically to avoid any misunderstanding or privacy invasion – assuming that you did not steal the device, that is.

Also, some spy apps need you to jailbreak your iPhones when you root the device. This applies only to iOS products. Check and see if the spy app provides installation for jailbroken devices. Most don’t, but some do.

Once the spy app has been installed you can start tracking. The spy app’s dashboard should keep a log of all the calls, texts, and device activities in one area. Note that some spy apps only keep the logs for a period of time (3 days, 7 days, etc) before deleting them. Some allow you to store it until it ran out of space.


The bottom line is that you can track calls and text messages on Facebook quite easily with the help of a spy app. Spy apps usually make tracking your targets a lot easier so you don’t have to fret over what your targets are doing behind your back.
