If you are considering installing mobile phone spy software in order to monitor your kids or your employees, you may be wondering if it is something you have the technical skills to handle. It may sound like a complicated task, but in reality, it is actually very easy to accomplish. Obviously, the installation process is going to differ slightly between apps, but the basic steps are usually the same. Let’s take a look at the basics of installing a mobile phone monitoring app.
1. Preparing the Device
You will need to have physical access to the device that you wish to monitor. Any app, which claims that you can install it remotely will not work as this is just not possible. You will need to jailbreak an iPhone to install your app, just as you will need to root an Android device. This is a good time to point out that you must choose an application that is compatible with your device and its operating system. Android apps cannot be installed on an iPhone and vice versa! Take the time to read through installation guides if they are provided. All of the premier mobile phone tracking apps, like mSpy, will make comprehensive guides available to you.
The best advice for any beginner is to give yourself plenty of time. In theory, these apps are designed to be installed in a matter of minutes, but if it is your first time, you may need a little longer to get it right so do make sure that you are not pushed for time.
2. Getting the Software Installed
These steps are generally the same for all apps of this nature, although they may occur in a slightly different order. Just pay attention to your chosen app’s guidelines.
The first step is to buy or subscribe to the software of your choice.
You will need to register with the provider in order to create your online account, so make sure that your details are all valid, especially the email address.
Once registered, you will receive a download link. It is normal to be asked to download this using the target device.
Once the download is complete, you may be asked to enter an activation code to trigger the installation process.
In most cases, you will need to reboot the device to complete the installation.
That’s it! It really is that simple to install the monitoring software on the device of your choice!
3. Get Ready To Monitor
The only part that can be a little complicated is actually setting up your online account with your preferred settings. You may not want to receive all reports in which case you will need to set up the appropriate parameters. It is usually fairly intuitive and again, the top monitoring apps all provide documentation explaining the process. Once your reports have been created, you can start to receive online reports about activity carried out on the device.
