When we talk about the influence of the Internet and related services, we talk about a lot of things. However, we believe the best of those changes has to deal with the way we communicate today. A few years back, we used to rely on cellular calls and SMS messages for the entire purpose of communication. To tell someone that you reached or to ask them what’s up. Fast forward some years, and we live in this world where there are more communication methods than anyone else. Obviously, cellular connectivity has improved and we now have clearer voice and less interruptions — not to mention the advancement of portability.
The New World of Instant Text Messages
Despite all these, however, we have been seeing the trend of texting here. Let’s take our own cases. We do more texting when compared to voice calls. There may be different reasons — for instance, you may not want to meet someone in person. Or, even better, you may have something digital to share, such as a photo or video. Either way, with some bit of generalization, people now cannot live with the benefits of texting. It needs to be noted that the same messages pose another issue there. We are not talking just about SMS but also others like WhatsApp, LINE, Messenger etc.
Because all these apps come with an option to delete text messages, most people use that option. So, when you want to see if your kid is talking with someone abusive, there may not be an option. But, that is where you should think about how to spy on deleted text messages remotely. You heard that right. You can spy on text messages one receives even if he/she deletes those messages after reading. In this article, we have one in-depth tutorial on how to spy on deleted text messages remotely.
Note: This method works for almost every Instant Messaging service out there, including WhatsApp, Viber, LINE and Messenger. What’s more, you can also see if your kids/employees are using SMSs to communicate with someone you don’t want them to. We also want to make one thing clear about legalities here. If you’re the owner of the device, you have complete freedom to spy on the targeted device. We leave the aspect of other’s privacy to you. For example, if you are an employer and want to see what your employees are doing with these services, you can use the following method. But, the employees’ phones should be given by your company and not the personal ones.
If the notes are fine, we will move forward to the process of spying on deleted text messages, remotely.
Prerequisites to Take Care Of
There are a few things to consider before you move onto spying deleted text messages remotely. We hope you understand the principle here. The text messages are tracked and monitored as they reach the device. So, even if the targeted user deletes the messages after, you will have access to them.
The following method works on Android and iOS. In both cases, you don’t have to be a techie. For instance, unlike what most of you believe, you don’t have to jailbreak your iPhone in order to spy on deleted messages from the device. However, you may need rooted Android if you want to spy on Instant Messengers. For this to happen, however, you need to use the software that we recommend. Things may vary in other programs for smartphone monitoring.
The Software to Use for Spy On Text Messages
As we said earlier, the app you use for spying is the most important factor here. According to our own experience and that of others, we’d recommend going with mSpy. mSpy is an all-the-round solution to spy on smartphone activities. It’s trusted, effective and reliable. It’s available for both Android and iOS too.
How to Spy On Deleted Text Messages from Smartphones — The Process to Follow
1. Purchasing mSpy
Before you purchase, you should take a look at the aspect of device compatibility. We’ll go brief into software compatibility of mSpy here. If you want to spy deleted text messages from non-jailbroken iPhone, there’s no worry. mSpy works with every version of iOS. As we come to the case of Android devices, mSpy offers full support for all devices running Android v4.0 and later. But, as we said, for tracking activities from IMs, device needs to be rooted. It’s completely up to you to jailbreak or root your smartphones, because mSpy works in both cases.
Once you have confirmed the compatibility, you can go ahead and purchase mSpy for Smartphones. All the variants work with both Android and iOS. It’s just the features that matters. For instance, if you go for mSpy Basic, you can have the basic features only. In the premium version, you can have a bunch of other spying-oriented features as well. You can make the choice depending on your requirement and budget. You’d also get a bundle kit of mSpy if you want to spy on Smartphones and Desktop devices at the same time. You can finish the payment part in a while and get started with the process.
2. Install mSpy
Here too, there are some differences. Regardless the version of mSpy you have purchased, the installation procedure is more or less the same. If you are on Android, you need physical access to the device. You will have to download the APK file from official website of mSpy and install it. On the other hand, if you want to spy on a non-jailbroken iPhone, you don’t need physical access to the device. mSpy works with the help of iCloud Backup and syncing.
Either way, mSpy installation won’t take more than a few minutes. That is, in a few minutes, you can set up a fully-fledged monitoring and spying system on the targeted device. Now, it’s time to start spying on deleted text messages and more from the device.
3. Log In and Start Spying
Depending on the device data and connectivity specifics, it may take up to 24 hours for mSpy to sync all data from the targeted device to mSpy servers. However, things can be quick when it comes to iPhone. Just as we said earlier, mSpy will be retrieving information from iCloud servers. So, there is no direct contact with your targeted phone. At the same time, it should be noted that iCloud Backup should be turned on the device to be spied.
Using mSpy is like a piece of cake. Once you have logged in using the credentials given, you can see the fully-fledged mSpy dashboard. And you can choose the corresponding section from the sidebar. Depending on the messenger platform you want to spy — normal text messages, WhatsApp, Messenger —, you can select the title and you can see the messages and other data in a few seconds or so.
So, that’s it. You have started spying deleted text messages from the targeted device. As we said, it’s not just the case of deleted messages. Every message that reaches the targeted device will be recorded and brought to the mSpy servers. Whenever you feel like checking them, you can log onto mSpy and do that. As you just saw, the process is very simple. Still, some of you may have some questions.
Q1. Do I need access to the phone for installing mSpy?
Ans. You don’t need access to the phone if you are trying to spy on a non-jailbroken iPhone. In this manner, you are getting data from iCloud directly. In Android, however, direct physical access to the phone is needed.
Q2. Do I need to jailbreak the iPhone for spying on deleted text messages?
Ans. You don’t need to do that. The software we use here, mSpy for iPhone, works fine without jailbreaking. In fact, you don’t even have to touch the targeted phone, if iCloud Backup has been enabled.
Q3. Is it legal to use mSpy?
Ans. The answer depends upon a bunch of reasons. First of all, it depends upon whether you own the device. If you are the legal owner of the device, you have the legal right to spy on it. You might have given to employee or spouse or children of yours, but that doesn’t matter. As long as you retain the ownership, there is nothing to worry about. However, in most countries, there are laws against the use of spying software in devices of other people, even your kith and kin.
Q4. Do I need internet connection on the targeted device?
Ans. Yes, you do. The phone doesn’t need to be constantly connected, but the information will be synced to the mSpy servers only when there’s an active internet connection.
So, what you have seen above is the easiest way to spy on deleted text messages from both Android and iOS devices out there. The discretion is yours, but we do really recommend using mSpy for obvious reasons. First of all, it’s trusted by thousands of parents and employers. Second, being a completely undetectable program, you don’t have to let the targeted person know about the spying process. That is, in practice, you can see what is actually happening in the device. We hope that sums up all your questions and doubts.
