In this article we’ll show you how to get started with Certo AntiSpy, from downloading the software right through to scanning your device.

Step 1 – Access your Certo Account

After purchasing Certo AntiSpy, access your Certo account to download the software and view your license key. If you need your login details, we emailed these to you just after purchase.

If you haven’t received your login details within 1 hour, please click here for help.

Step 2 – Downloading Certo AntiSpy

Click the ‘License & Downloads’ page in your Certo account and download the Certo AntiSpy installer to your Windows or Mac computer.

Due to restrictions imposed by Apple, spyware scanning apps cannot be installed directly onto iPhones/iPads. Certo AntiSpy works via your computer, meaning it can scan iPhones/iPads for spyware and other security vulnerabilities.

Step 3 – Installation & First Run

After downloading, run the installer and follow the onscreen instructions to install Certo AntiSpy onto your computer.

The first time you run Certo AntiSpy you will be prompted to enter your license key. You can find your license key in your Certo account or in your order confirmation email.

Step 5 – Scanning Your Device

Once you’ve created your iTunes backup it will be available to scan within the Certo application. Just select your backup from the list and click Scan to check your device for spyware and other security vulnerabilities.

Your results will be displayed once the scan has completed. These include: any spyware found, whether the device is Jailbroken and details of any apps that can access your location, microphone or camera.
