How to See My Boyfriend’s Text Messages Without Touching His Phone

see my boyfriend texting another woman
When I started noticing red flags in my personal relationship I realized I had no choice but to spy on my partners mobile phone to see their text messages.

It wasn’t easy.

And I wasted a lot of time and money (over $100) on worthless solutions.

There are plenty of companies out there they make it sound really easy. But phone security is really good.

So you need to know a few things for it to work. And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you.

The hardest part of reading your boyfriend’s text messages is getting your hands on their phone. Even someone with nothing to hide rarely let’s their phone out of their sight.

But if they do have something to hide, they never let their phone out of their sight.

So I’ll be showing you solutions that don’t require installing any software or even having physical access to the device (this will only work on one type of phone)

More on that below…

How You Can Read His Text Messages Without Him Knowing

So I’ve got some good news and bad news.

The good news is that there are handful of reliable spy phone apps that let you see just about everything on your boyfriend’s phone without touching it.

In addition to seeing his phone text sms messages, spying apps can help you catch your boyfriend cheating by giving you access to the following:

  • social media messages like Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, and even Tinder
  • GPS location of his phone
  • phone call logs
  • pictures and media files
In SOME CASES you won’t even need access to the target phone to do this.

Now for the bad news.

Some phones require at least a couple minute of physical access to install the spying app.

Keep reading to see which method you’ll need.

iPhones and iOS Devices

If your boyfriend or husband uses an iPhone you’ll be able to read his text messages without installing software. This iPhone text message hack is VERY powerful.

Even though Apple has made iPhones incredibly secure, there is a way to hack into them without having to install anything on the device itself.

If they’ve setup their phone to backup to their iCloud account, all the information you could ever want will be stored in it.

My favorite spy app for iPhones is called uMobix. You can learn more about it here.

Here’s what I like about the uMobix app:

  • works by monitoring their iCloud account so you don’t have to get your hands your boyfriend’s iPhone
  • see messages from social media like Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, and even Tinder so you won’t miss anything
  • no technical knowledge required – EXTREMELY easy to use so you can start discretely monitoring TODAY

All you need to know to start spying on your boyfriend is his username and password for his iCloud account. uMobix will pull all the target iPhone data into a web app that you can access via your control panel. This is all accomplished without touching his phone.

In my experience people use the same email address and password for their iCloud credentials as for anything else.

Android Devices

Unfortunately the method above ONLY works with iOS (Apple) devices. If your boyfriend’s phone is an Android, for example, things become a bit more difficult.

Androids don’t use an iCloud backup. So if you need to track an Android device you will have to install an app directly on the phone.

And of course, this means you’ll need a couple minutes of access to the target phone.

My favorite spy app for Androids is SpyIC.

SpyIC’s app offers all of the following:

  • see all your boyfriend’s text messages without him knowing
  • track your boyfriend’s phone location and even see his location history
  • simple installation so you only need a couple minutes access to your boyfriend’s Android phone
  • no rooting required – most spy apps for the Android operating system require rooting, SpyIC does NOT
So to be COMPLETELY CLEAR…

If you want to see who your boyfriend is texting you will need a couple minutes to install an app.

Once you’ve signed up for a subscription plan they send you a step by step guide on how to install the app on the target device. The app icon can be set to be hidden from the user.

If you suspect you have a cheating boyfriend you have to protect yourself.

The first step is installing one of the spy apps recommended above.

Once you’ve installed the spy app you will be given a link to an online dashboard where you will be able to monitor your boyfriend and his phone messages without his knowledge.

The monitoring app will pull data from his phone and upload it to your dashboard at regular intervals so long as his phone is connected to cell service or wifi.

This means that most of the time within minutes you’ll be able to see all of your boyfriend’s text messages. You’ll even be able to see deleted text messages.

How to Track My Boyfriend’s Phone

In addition to text messages and other messaging apps these powerful spy apps also allow you to track the physical location of your husband or your boyfriend’s phone without touching it or installing software.

When you log into your control panel you’ll be able to see exactly where his phone is currently, as well as data of it’s past locations.

Some apps even allow you to setup geo-fencing so you get a notification when he goes into or leaves a specific area on the map.

This can be especially useful when you think your husband or boyfriend might be lying about where they’re going. You simply setup the alert and you will get a notification whenever they enter a specific area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions I get when people are considering using a app to track a phone or read the text messages of their partner.

How Can I See Who My Boyfriend is Texting for Free?

There are some free methods available for tracking your boyfriend’s text messages.

One of the easiest is if you’re on the same phone plan. Companies like Verizon keep text messages historyfrom all the phones on your account.

To view them you simply need to log into your account and look in the “Usage” section.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to see what’s written in your boyfriend’s text messages. But you will be able to see who he’s texting and when the text was sent or received.

How Can I Forward My Husband’s Text Messages to My Phone?

While it used to be pretty simple to setup text forwarding on both iPhones and Androids, companies have since made it more difficult.

You can find apps out there that will allow you to do this, but they usually require purchase. Essentially these apps allow you to forward your boyfriend’s text messages as email to your address.

Can You Spy on Someone’s Phone Without Installing Software?

The quick answer is… it depends.

As I mentioned above you can track an iPhone if you have the users iCloud credentials. For Android phones you’ll need to have physical access to the target device for a few minutes to install a spying app. For more information on tracking a phone without installing software click here.

Can I My Boyfriend’s Web Browser History?

Absolutely. These apps will allow you to see all the websites they’ve visited, even if they clear their browsing history. This is the case with both an iPhone or Android phone.

Can You Spy on Your Boyfriend With Just His Number?

While you will see lot’s of articles showing how this can be done, I’ve never found a reliable method. All of the sites I’ve visited are basically worthless.

Mobile phone security is just too good for someone to be able to hack one with just the number. So while you can read his text messages without him knowing, you won’t be able to just accomplish this with his phone number.

iCloud Password Recovery Method

If you don’t know your boyfriend’s password for iCloud you can submit a new one via Apple’s password recovery feature. But you will need to have access to his email to do this.

Once you know his password you can start using the phone monitoring app.

Is mSpy a Good Solution

mSpy is still one of our favorite surveillance software tools but we prefer SpyIC and uMobix because this spying software doesn’t require you to root or jailbreak the phone.

As of right now the mSpy tracking app requires this in order to view all messages.

Are Phone Tracking Apps Legal

It depends on where you live. In the United States you have the right to monitor a phone with spyware apps so long as you own the phone. The data privacy laws here in the US are quite strict so consult a legal advisor if you have questions.

The tracking software is intended for legal use only. Downloading installing and using can result in severe monetary and criminal penalties.
