How to Spy on Text Messages Without Installing Software

Need a way to spy on someone’s text messages without installing software? There are many websites out there that supposedly provide this service for you. Unfortunately, most of them don’t work or are poorly-disguised phishing attempts.

At the moment, the only reliable way to spy on text messages without software is with the help of a web-based utility like Spyic. The app allows you to remotely monitor someone’s text messages as well as iMessages, no downloads involved.

Spy On Text Messages

Note that Spyic can only remotely monitor iPhones at the moment. If you want to read messages sent out from or received on an Android smartphone, on the other hand, you need to install a small app on the device, which is less than 2 MBs.

Here’s how you can spy on text messages sent or received on an iPhone without any software:

Part 1: How to Spy on Text Messages without Installing Software

Spyic is a well-known remote monitoring and parental control app. It’s mainly used by parents to keep an eye on their kids. Employers also use it occasionally to see if their employees are being productive and not selling company secrets on the sly.

The biggest advantage of Spyic is that it can be set up to work with target iPhones fully remotely. There are no software downloads involved and you can have it up and running in a handful of minutes.

1.1 Spyic can read text messages and iMessages without jailbreak

Spyic offers multiple text message and iMessage-related features. You can read someone’s texts remotely, without having to jailbreak the device. Here’s what Spyic can do:

  • Read messages and iMessages: Spyic shows you all the messages that have been sent out from the target iPhone or received on it. You get periodic updates, depending on the target device’s backup frequency.
  • Access timestamps: Every message entry will be accompanied by a timestamp. You’ll know when the conversation began and when it ended.
  • View contact details: Who is the person talking to? You’ll get contact names, phone numbers, addresses, and even job descriptions, if available.
  • See deleted messages: What happens if the person deletes an incriminating message? No problem! Spyic backs up all messages to its servers. You can receive all messages, even the deleted ones.
  • Also, read social media messages: As a bonus, you can also read social media messages on apps like WhatsApp and LINE.


1.2 Spyic is one of the most advanced text message interceptors around

Spyic is a rare app. It’s one of the few apps out there that work completely remotely on iOS, no downloads involved. Most other apps require you to jailbreak the target device, which is a complicated, risky process.

Here are some of the top benefits of using Spyic:

  • Set up and read messages remotely
    You can set up Spyic remotely. You don’t need to be physically near the target device. In fact, you don’t even need to be on the same continent as the target iPhone! All you need is a computer with a working internet connection.
  • Install within minutes
    You’ll be able to set up Spyic within a handful of minutes. After you purchase a subscription, you’re given easy-to-follow setup instructions. If you want to start reading the target’s texts within the next 15 minutes, Spyic is for you.
  • Read messages without being detected
    If your target finds out you’re reading their texts, you’re going to be in trouble. Fortunately, Spyic for iOS is undetectable. It’s 100% web-based, so there are no files to trace. It doesn’t affect the working of the iPhone in any way.
  • Get added features
    Spyic does more than simply read SMSs. The app also allows you to monitor call logs, locations, social media activity, calendar events, notes, the browser history, and so much more! It’s a full-fledged monitoring utility.
  • Gain peace of mind by using a trusted app
    You can’t trust every spy app out there. Many don’t work and some even steal your personal information. Spyic, however, is completely legitimate. The app is used by over a million users in over 190+ countries.

1.4 Spyic for Android

Want to read messages sent or received on an Android smartphone? It’s possible, but not without installing the software. You’ll need to install Spic’s Android version on the target phone. The process takes less than 2 minutes. You don’t need to root the device.

No method has yet been developed to spy on text messages on an Android phone without installing software on it. If a service claims to allow you to do so, they’re trying to take you for a ride. Don’t be fooled.

Spyic for Android runs in the background, without slowing the phone down or draining the battery. The app is next to impossible to detect. The download size is less than 2MB, so it’s very easy to set up. Also, you can remotely uninstall it with one click.

Cocospy is an excellent alternative to Spyic. The app allows you to read SMS on target iOS devices. You can’t read messages on target Android devices without installing Cocospy on them. For iPhones, though, Cocospy is web-based.

  • Set up quickly
