All you have to do is read my guide closely till the end, the rest will come to you easily. Therefore, without any further waiting, let us get started with the guide:

Part 1: How to Spy on A Cell Phone Without Having It

It is obvious that when you are spying on someone’s phone, you don’t want them to find out about it. You need a method that is reliable as well as quiet. After all, if you are spying on the phone of someone you care about, all hell might break loose if you are caught doing it.

Therefore, I will start by teaching you a method which let you know that how to spy on someones phone in the act:

1.1 Minspy- World’s Best Phone Spy Solution

If you want to spy on an Android or iOS device and you need a solution that works 10 out of 10 times,  Minspy is what you need.

Minspy is an online phone spying service that can give you the data of any smartphone, provided it runs on an Android or iOS operating system. It is a remote phone spying solution which lets you spy on a phone even from a whole different corner of the world.


With its subscribers spread all over the world, millions of people are using Minspy to keep an eye on their spouse, children, or employees. After all, it is always good to know what the people around you are hiding from you.

One of the things I like about Minspy is that it doesn’t care about your reason for spying on someone’s phone. Whatever your purpose be, the features of Minspy will definitely fulfil it.

Let me tell you about some of the reasons that make Minspy the world’s best phone spying solution:

Why Millions of Users are Spying on Phones Using Minspy

If you want to know what makes Minspy so special, you should read these factors carefully:

Stealth App

When you are using Minspy’s phone spy solution to spy on an Android or iOS phone, the target user will never find out about it. This is due to the stealth design of Minspy for both iPhones and Android phones.

In fact, you can spy on any iPhone without even touching it if you use MInspy. For Android phones, you will need to touch the target phone at least once (as is the case of ALL phone spying apps). However, even its Android app is 100% hidden.

Web Service

You can use the features of Minspy through an online dashboard that opens in ANY web browser that you use. This dashboard can be accessed by logging into your Minspy account through the website.


No Root or Jailbreak Required

Around 90% of the phone spy apps ask you to root or jailbreak the target phone in order to work. However, by employing cutting edge technology designed by genius minds, Minspy is able to spy on any phone without needing root or jailbreak.

Data Security

When you are spying on the phone of someone you care about (which is usually the case), you don’t want the private data to be leaked to anyone else. Therefore, data security is a big concern and one that you should never neglect.

Minspy takes extra security measures in this regard. It doesn’t store any of your private data on its servers. In fact, even Minspy’s own team cannot view your private data even if they wanted to. It is hard to find such a level of security anywhere else.

Due to all these factors, it is hard to find any phone spy app that can offer as much as Minspy does. Don’t believe me? Not an issue. You can check out Minspy live through the free demo. You won’t need to sign up or install any app for it.

I know you are wondering what all can you view with Minspy. Don’t worry, I will give you a brief sneak peek into Minspy’s features too. Read on to find out more:

Things You Can Do With Minspy

When it comes to using Minspy, the possibilities of the things that you can do are endless. Here are some of the commonly used Minspy features:

Social Media Spy

With Minspy, you can get all the sent and received social media messages of the person. When I say social media, I mean it to include all platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and any other popular social media site used by the person.



The keylogger feature shows you everything that the user has typed on their phone. This includes messages, browser searches, usernames, and even passwords. Even if they delete anything, the keylogger will still have it.


Browser Monitor

The web browser monitor will show you all the websites that the user has visited. In fact, you can even block the user’s access to any particular web site that you wish. This feature is particularly handy for parents and employers.

Call Monitor

With the call monitor, you can see the logs of all the incoming and outgoing calls of the user. You can even record their phone calls if you would like to have a deeper insight into someone’s secretive life.


There are many (actually MANY) features that you get with Minspy. To have a clearer idea about these, you can check out Minspy’s demo. You can see every feature there completely free.

Spy on Phones Secretly with Minspy

Now that you know how awesome Minspy is, let me tell you more about how it works secretly to give you the data of the target phone.

I will tell you this one by one for iOS devices and then for Android devices.

Spying on iPhones Secretly:

When you want to spy on an iPhone, Minspy’s iOS solution won’t even ask you to touch the target iPhone even once. This is because Minspy utilizes the iCloud feature that is preinstalled on all iPhones right out of the box.


With the iCloud feature, all the data of an iPhone gets uploaded to the iCloud server. Minspy utilizes this cloud backup to extract all the private data of the device.

Therefore, all you need to do for spying on an iPhone is to provide Minspy with the iCloud credentials of the target iPhone. Rest assured, Minspy doesn’t store these credentials on its servers, they are for the first time configuration process only.

Spying on Android Phones Secretly:

When you want to spy on an Android phone, every spy software will require you to install a spying application on the target phone. This is due to Android’s unique structure, and even Minspy cannot overcome this limitation. However, don’t be disappointed yet.

Even though you need to install the Minspy app on the target phone, the other user will still never find out about it. This is because of the unique measures taken in Minspy’s app design.


The app size of Minspy for Android is less than 3 MB which means that it will install in a matter of seconds. Once it is installed, the app icon will vanish from the app menu of the target phone. Only you will be able to launch it with a secret code (although you won’t need to launch it ever).

The app runs quietly in the background without triggering any notifications. It is designed not to consume any battery as well.

And if you ever feel like uninstalling the app, you can do it remotely through the Minspy dashboard from any web browser. Therefore, after the first time access, you never need to even touch the target Android phone ever again.

**All Android spying solutions make it mandatory to install a spying app on the target phone. If any spying service claims to spy on Android without installing an app, it is making false claims. Avoid such services unless you want to be robbed of your time, money, or data**

Now let me teach you the steps to spy on any phone using Minspy. I will detail the steps for iPhones in Part 1.2, and the steps to for Android phones in Part 1.3.

When you click on ‘Start’, you will be taken to your Minspy dashboard. You can use all the features of Minspy from here.

1.3 How to Spy on an Android Phone Secretly

When you are spying on an Android phone, you need a one time access to the target phone just for configuring Minspy. After that, you will never need to touch it again. You can follow these steps to get an Android phone’s data:

Part 2: How Can I Spy on A Cell Phone Without Installing Software on The Target Phone?

Life without options is like going to an ice cream parlour and finding only one flavour of ice cream. Everyone likes to know more than one way of doing any task.

The same applies to phone spying apps as well. While Minspy is, no doubt, an awesome way to spy on a phone without touching it, there are a couple of other ways just as good. Let me tell you about these apps too:

2.1 Spyier- The Ninja Way of Spying on a Phone


Spyier is one of the most popular phone spying apps about which I have read more reviews than I can count. In fact, I have even read about Spyier in the biggest tech review outlets out there, such as PCMag, TechRadar, etc.

In all those reviews one thing is common- if you want a phone spying app, Spyier will give you exactly what you want and more. With over 35 features that make sure that no data of the target phone is hidden from you, Spyier is sort of a must have if you don’t think you want to give MInspy a try.

Just like Minspy, Spyier is a web service as well. You can view the data of any iPhone from any web browser of any device if you are using Spyier. The target iPhone could be present on the whole opposite end of the universe; yet, Spyier spy app will give you what you want.

Part 3: How to Spy on Someone’s Phone Without Touching It

You might have thought that phone spying was nearly impossible. However, now you have Minspy and you have Spyier- two of the phone spying apps that give you someone’s private data within five minutes.

As a bonus to you for reading the guide up till here, I will show you another method which works like a charm as well.

3.1 Spyine Invisible Phone Spy Service

Spyine is another great phone spy solution relatively newer than the apps we have read about so far. However, the lesser popularity doesn’t mean any compromises in product quality as I have myself reviewed the service.

Using Spyine is like having someone’s phone in your own hands. You can view every bit and byte of their data in real time. If they get a message, you know about it. If they send a message, you know about it.

And it is not just limited to messages. Spyine can give you their location, call records, social media data, and possibly everything else.

My favorite part about Spyine is that it even shows you the deleted content of the other user. If anyone is trying to hide something from you, Spyine is going to make sure that their efforts are futile.

Part 4: Frequently Asked Questions

While I have tried my best to make everything so far very explanatory, I can understand if you still have some questions. I will take up most commonly asked questions and answer them here:

Q: Are there any free phone spy apps?

A: No, there aren’t. There are phone spy apps that ‘claim’ to be free, but are simply scams that do not work. All working phone spy apps come at a price, at times negligible.

A: It depends on the phone spying app you use. The apps mentioned in this list work without jailbreaking/rooting.
