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.

Why do I need a computer?

Due to restrictions imposed by Apple, apps installed on the phone cannot scan areas of the device where spyware typically hides. Therefore, Certo AntiSpy works via your computer, which allows it to perform a full and complete scan of the phone.
