How to install mSpy on Android and iPhone

The road to finally being able to use mSpy to monitor a cell phone can be a long and winding one. If you're trying to install mSpy into a device and having a hard go at it, then please read on to find out how to install mSpy on Android and iPhone. I've tried to break down the steps and I've simplified them as much as possible. So I've broken down the process to 3 major steps: Buying, Downloading, and Installing.

I shall explain each of the steps in detail so you know exactly how to install mSpy on Android and iPhone.

Part 1: Buy

Buying mSpy itself takes you through three steps.

Step 1: Package selection.

mSpy has a variety of packages that you can choose from. Their three primary packages are the Basic, Premium, and Bundle Kit. And all them come in licenses of 1 month, 3 months, and 12 months. Thus, you need to choose a package which best suits your needs based on three factors: Cost, Features, and License Duration. You can go to its official website to get the detail information.

Step 2: Secure Avangate Buy Page.

Next, you'll be taken to a completely secure Avangate page to make the payment. After filling in all the standard information such as name, country, etc, you can make the payment through any one of their various payment methods. You can then click on 'Submit Order.'

Step 3: Find the Email.

You should immediately find a confirmation email with the following information:

  1. Order information.
  2. Link to the Control Panel.
  3. Username.
  4. Password.

Part 2: Download - Android

The Download and Installation process is different for both Androids and iPhones. As such, I shall be dividing them accordingly. In this part I will give a step-by-step guide on how to download mSpy for Android phones.

Step 1: Confirmation email.

Click on the Confirmation email. Read it carefully as it has all the access details and the download link which you'll soon need. Make sure your Android phone is rooted and that your internet connection is strong and stable.

Step 2: Enable Unknown Sources.

You need to enable unknown sources in the target phone so that the phone accepts mSpy application even though it isn't installed from the Play Store. This is how you can enable Unknown Sources:

  1. Go to Settings > Security.
  2. Go down to Device Administration.
  3. Enable Unknown Sources.

Enable Unknown Sources

Step 3: Download Link.

Enter the download link into the web browser. Enter the captcha characters and proceed to download. The entire download process should be over in a few seconds. Next, you'll have to access the “bt.apk” file for the installation process.

Part 3: Install - Android

This part will take you through the entire installation process in 7 easy-to-follow steps. By the end of this you will easily be able to spy on someone's phone without even having it.

Step 1: Update Service.

Once you access the “bt.apk” file, an "Update Service" screen would appear. This step seeks permission to monitor the target phone. You select everything by going 'Next' and then finally hit 'Install.'
