How to Hack a Cell Phone
So you want to know how to hack a cell phone without anyone knowing? This guide will look at several ways to hack a phone in 2018. I’ll start with the easy way and then take a look at some alternative hacking methods that you may not be aware of.
First let’s clear up what Hacking a phone actually means. According to most dictionary definitions – Hacking means “to gain unauthorized access to data in a system or computer”. In the case of cell phone hacking – the phone is the system or computer. Now I’m not completely comfortable with the term Hacking as it has certain illegal connotations. If you follow this website you’ll know I look in depth at cell phone spy software apps – reviewing the most popular apps, explaining how to use them … and testing them continuously. This can all be done in legal ways. I do not promote any illegal use of spy apps. Call it Hacking or spying or monitoring someone’s cell phone – they all amount to the same result – gaining access to the data. So how do you do it?
The Easy Way to Hack a Phone – Secretly
In most cases the whole point will be to hack someone’s phone without them knowing and still gain access to as much data as possible – agreed? Cell phone spy software apps are definitely the easiest and most affordable methods to do this … and you don’t need to be a tech wizard. I have reviews of the top rated spy apps on this website – going into great detail about what these apps can do. My main Phone Spy Guide covers everything you need to get started – have a look. The two best selling programs today are mSpy and Flexispy – both reliable products that I have tested and actually use. Both can be used in complete stealth mode and will be almost impossible to detect.
How They Work
There are basically two methods for Spy apps to work:
Full Version Software
This is software that you download and install directly onto the phone you want to hack. You need physical access to the phone for at least a few minutes. Once installed the spy app collects data from the target device and uploads it to an online dashboard. You can login online (from anywhere) and see all of the collected information and activity on the phone. This full version works on Android and Apple phones and tablet devices. Once the software has been installed – no further access is required and you can view all the data remotely.
No Jailbreak Version
This is a relatively new hacking method and is only available for Apple devices such as the iPhone. No software is installed on the phone you want to hack into – and so there is no need to Jailbreak Apple phones. This version works by monitoring backups of the phone made with iCloud – Apple’s free backup program for the iPhone etc. It does not give real time data as it relies on backup updates. There are also fewer monitoring features compared to the full version programs – but it is still a powerful hacking tool.
What Can You Monitor
People are always amazed at how powerful these spy apps can be. The individual hacking programs do offer different advanced feature lists – see my main reviews for details of each. As standard, almost all spy apps let you : See detailed call logs, read text messages, see GPS tracking data (where the phone is or has been recently), Browser history, emails, photos and video on the phone, list of apps installed …. the list goes on. Advanced spy features vary – for example Flexispy and Xnspy have call recording features where you can listen to actual voice calls made or received on the hacked device. You can see messages sent and received on popular social media sites and messenger apps – Instagram, Facebook hacking or WhatsApp and SnapChat hacking is all available with mSpy. You can Track your kids phone in real time and get alerts if the leave or enter “set restricted areas”. You can also control many functions on the phone – such as blocking specific apps or websites; block certain phone numbers or wipe data – all remotely (after installation). The bottom line is that you can gain access to almost every activity that takes place with the hacked phone or tablet device. From hacking text messages to hacking Facebook – all easily accomplished with these apps.
How to Hack a Phone Without Having It?
If you are using spy software apps the answer is probably no. For the full version software you will need access to install the program physically onto the target phone or device. After that monitoring and control can be done remotely using the online dashboard. Using the No Jailbreak version – it can be possible to hack into the phone data without having it physically … with certain conditions. First you need to have the user’s Apple ID and password – and secondly the phone must already be set up to run backups on iCloud. If not then you will need to get access to the phone to configure the backups to run initially. This leads us on to the next section where I look at some other ways you can hack someone’s phone without having it. Don’t get too excited though – these methods are not readily available to most people and are likely to be very expensive and illegal. But we will have a look for fun!
