iPhone and Android are arch-rivals when it comes to smartphones. In this article, we are not going to compare Android to iPhone but actually going to look at whether you can spy on an iPhone from Android.
Most people who own an Android device but their child or spouse is using an iPhone want to find out whether it is possible to monitor iPhones from Android. If you are one among them then this article is for you.
If you are looking to spy on PC from Android then you can read this article instead.
Is It Possible To Monitor Child’s iPhone From Android?
Yes, you can actually track your child’s iPhone from your Android phone. There are lots of parental control apps like FamiSafe which are compatible with both iPhone and Android. Unlike hidden spyware for Android mentioned over here, FamiSafe isn’t a hidden app. Your kids can see the logo of Famisafe on their app drawer. This means you cannot use a Parental control app secretly.
Nonetheless, to use this parental control app all you need to do is download the parent’s version of the app on your Android phone and then download the kid’s version of the app on your child’s iPhone.
Once you do that you can create your account on the parent’s device i.e on your Android phone and then sync your child’s phone to it. Once everything is set up you can now parental control iPhone from Android using FamiSafe.
FamiSafe can help you limit the screen time of your child, monitor their driving, and most importantly track their browsing history.
By looking at their search history you can tell if your kids are using the internet for the right cause or watching adult stuff on it. Moreover, you cannot just see but also block the web pages that you feel aren’t good for your child.
These parental control apps do a great job of keeping an eye on your minor child but not your spouse or partner. The reason behind that is these apps are not hidden on the target phone and don’t have all the features you will require to catch a cheating partner.
Hence, you will need to make use of spyware like KidsGuard Pro uMobix, mSpy, FlexiSPY, etc which can help you catch a cheating partner easily. However, unlike parental control apps, most of this spyware doesn’t have a dedicated app for the parents i.e the person who is spying on someone else. You have to go to your desktop to view the target person’s activity from the spy app’s dashboard. But sometimes you don’t have access to your computer and you want to monitor your loved one’s activity instantly.
Don’t worry, I have a trick that will help you spy on iPhone from Android on the go without the target person knowing about it even if you don’t have access to a PC at the moment.
How To Spy On iPhone From Android?
There are three steps to monitor iPhone from Android using spyware which is as follows.
- Create an account on the spyware website
- Download & install the spy app on the target iPhone
- Log into the spy app dashboard from your Android phone to monitor activities
Let’s discuss these steps in more detail.
Step 1: Create Your Spyware Account
In order to use any spy app you must have your account created on its website and then only you can purchase the license and download the app. It doesn’t take more than 5 minutes to create your account. Just visit the website of any spy app you like and create your account.
Step 2: Download & Install The Spy App On The Target Phone
The next step is downloading and installing the app on the target phone. In case you are spying on a non-jailbroken iPhone then you can skip this step because you don’t have to install any app on the target device.
On a non-jailbroken iPhone, the spying is done through iCloud. In this case, all you have to do is purchase the license and then use the iCloud login credentials of the target person to see their activities.
If the target iPhone is jailbroken then you can install a spy app like FlexiSPY on it. For that, you will need to have physical access to the device for some time.
Step 3: Monitor The Activities Through The Spy App Dashboard
Once everything is set up, you can now remotely monitor all the activities of the target person from the spyware dashboard. If you don’t have a PC standby don’t worry you can monitor the iPhone from Android. All you have to do is visit the spy app website, log into your account, and start monitoring the activities. For better monitoring, you can set the mobile browser to the desktop mode for better viewing and experience.
What Can You Monitor On iPhone From Android?
What can you monitor depends on the spy app you have opted for. Some spy apps have more features while other have fewer. However, there are some basic features you will find on all the iPhone spyware message tracking, call logs monitoring, social media activity tracking, and much more. You can even read WhatsApp chats of the target person but cannot record whatsApp calls & video calls.
In general, iPhone spy apps that monitor iPhone through iCloud has limited features. However, if you go with the iPhone spy apps that need jailbreak permissions then there’s no limit to what you can track. For example, with the FlexiSPY app, you can listen to their calls, record their keystrokes, have remote access to their phone’s camera and microphone, and much more.
Spying on iPhone from Android is possible as you have already seen. If you want to monitor your minor child then I would recommend that you make use of the parental control apps as they are available on the Android and iPhone app stores. You can download the parent version on Android and the child version of the app on iPhone. This way you can easily spy on your child’s iPhone through your Android device.
However, if you want to monitor your spouse or partner’s phone then I would recommend using spyware and not parental control apps because spy apps are hidden and parental control apps are not. If you use a parental control app then they will know that you are trying to spy on them. Moreover, spyware has more advanced features that will help you catch a cheating partner red-handed, and that too without them knowing.
