How to Install mSpy

Downloading and installing mSpy is a breeze and it might have taken about 5 to 10 minutes for the entire process to complete. However, you can’t simply download the mSpy app from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Instead, you have to go to the mSpy Control Panel to download it.

How to Install mSpy on a jailbroken iPhone

To download mSpy on an iPhone, you will need to jailbreak it first. If you can’t jailbreak the phone, try using the mSpy Without Jailbreak Solution.

To use this solution, you will need to know the iCloud credentials (Apple ID and password) of the monitored iPhone.

Once the installation is complete and the phone is back in the hands of the target, they will have no way of knowing that their phone is being tracked.

Can I install mSpy remotely into the target device?

A lot of people ask me, “Is there a way that I can install this software onto a phone remotely?” Unfortunately this cannot be done. mSpy has to be installed directly onto the phone. Once it has been installed, it is totally invisible. There are software vendors that make claims that you can install the software remotely but more than often it does not work as well as they say it does.
