WhatsApp is one of the most widely used messaging apps in the world. It is widely popular because of the simple reason that it allows users from around the world to connect and communicate easily. It is particularly popular with young people and in a world where cyber-crime and cyberbullying are on the rise, parents are anxious to keep their children safe. This means being able to see who they are communicating with on WhatsApp and finding a way to monitor Whatsapp messages to ensure their safety.

In this article, we are going to provide concerned parents with an easy way to get read their children’s WhatsApp messages.

Part 1: Is it right for parents to read children's WhatsApp messages

Some may see reading their child’s WhatsApp messages a violation of privacy but there are times when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if you suspect that your child may be in danger of interacting with the wrong people, you want to be there to protect your child before they are lured into a difficult situation.

So is it a parent’s right to read their children’s WhatsApp messages? Seeing as it is the individual responsibility of every parent to protect their child, reading their WhatsApp messages may be necessary.

Part 2: How to Read WhatsApp messages from iOS and Android Devices

One of the best ways to monitor and read someone else’s WhatsApp messages is to use WhatsApp monitoring software and one of the best programs to use is MSpy. This is because mSpy is not just simple to use but also very effective in providing you with all the data you need on that particular device. The following are just some mSpy features that make it the ideal monitoring software to choose from.

  • It is one of the very few WhatsApp monitoring programs that support all devices including iOS and Android devices.
  • The mSpy dashboard, where you get all the information about the device you are tracking is available on just about any browser and is very easy to use. All you have to do is log in and select the type of data you want to view.
  • MSpy can be useful to you in not just tracking WhatsApp messages but also for tracking a lot of other types of data including SMS, call logs, Viber, Skype, and many more including GPS tracking.

How to use MSpy to read someone else’s WhatsApp messages

Follow these very simple steps to use mSpy to track and read another person’s WhatsApp messages.

Step 1: Head on over to the mSpy website and then select and purchase a mSpy subscription that best suits your needs. Once you have completed the order you will receive the mSpy installation guidelines in your email.

Step 2: Follow the guidelines that you received to install mSpy on the device you want to track. You should know that if you are installing the mobile tracking program on an iPhone, you may need to jailbreak the device for mSpy to work correctly.

Step 3: Once the program is installed, all you have to do now is log in to your dashboard to view the information on the device. Click on “WhatsApp” to read the WhatsApp messages.

There you go! This way, you can easily track others' WhatsApp for fun. But if you find yourself being tracked, follow this tip to prevent being tracked by faking GPS location.

Part 3: Another way to read WhatsApp messages from iPhone/iPad

You could use mSpy to read the WhatsApp messages but if the device you want to monitor is an iPhone, having to jailbreak the device seems like a rather huge risk to take just to read a few messages. Therefore, if you would rather not jailbreak the device or even install any programs on the device to read the WhatsApp messages, there is another, easier route to take.
