The ability to monitor somebody’s phone is no longer a resource exclusive to governments and spy agencies. Nowadays, thanks to consumer spy apps such as mSpy and Mobistealth, anybody who wants to snoop on somebody else’s device can do so with relative ease.
Apple’s iPhone is one of the most secure smartphones available today, it’s one of the reasons it is so popular. However, all major consumer spy apps now work on iPhones (and iPads) and over the last couple of years their use has increased dramatically. One of the most common users of these type of apps is a spying partner or spouse.
At this point you’re probably thinking that installing such an app has got to be a long, complicated and expensive process that your partner would never attempt. But don’t be so sure. In fact, installing a spy app is very easy. Complete step-by-step instructions for the whole installation are provided and no advanced technical knowledge is needed. All that is required is physical access to the device, the screen unlock code (if there is one) and a computer or laptop. Typically, the whole process only takes around 10-15 minutes. Furthermore, the majority of spy apps now cost less than $100, making them more affordable and much cheaper than a private investigator or other traditional monitoring methods.
If your iPhone or iPad has spyware installed then everything you use it for can be monitored. This includes calls, text messages, emails, browsing history, photos & videos, Skype, Facebook, WhatsApp and even your physical location using GPS. All this information is sent to a web control panel that can be viewed remotely by your partner. What’s more, spy apps are invisible to the user so you’d have no idea that all this is going on.
