4 Ways To Access Someone’s Phone Without Them Knowing

When it comes to accessing someone’s phone— without them finding out— we understand you would only do so if necessary.  There are certain situations where you might feel the need to access someone’s cell phone without them knowing. This includes the need to monitor your children’s phone use or employees’ productivity.

In any case, how does one go about accessing someone’s phone without the owner in question finding out?

Password Peeking

Password peeking is the most basic method by which to can access someone’s phone without their knowledge. This involves watching when they unlock their phone or asking them to open their phone for some reason while making sure you can view their password.

Once the password is obtained, it is simply a matter of waiting of accessing their phone when left unattended. Just make sure not to rearrange or delete anything otherwise, you will be found out!

Cracking and Unlocking

This process is more complicated and involves needing a clear understanding of how phone operating systems work. Many applications allow direct backdoor access and if you have the right computer software, you can crack open and access all data on the target phone.

Though this method is reliable for those who have the software and know-how to use it, it still requires the individual in question to leave their phone around you long enough. Connecting, cracking, and accessing the target device may take some time

Spy Software

Possibly one of the most foolproof ways to access someone else’s phone without them knowing is by using spy software. Spy apps for phones are available for both Android phones and iPhones. Such software allows you to track and monitor all media and messages exchanged on the target phone.

Furthermore, there are spy apps available that can easily be installed on the target phone remotely providing full access to all the information you need. Since these apps are hidden, the phone user being monitored is unable to tell you have access to their device.

In situations where there is doubt, these apps provide the information you need to make sure whether the problem or person in question needs to be addressed.


An unconventional method for the average person is hacking someone’s cell phone to gain access to it. If you do not know how to do this, there are experts for hire online that can accomplish such tasks (which we do not recommend doing). Methods they may use to hack the target user include Wi-Fi networks, phishing, and malware.

The Upshot

Again, if you can resolve things through open communication, do so first. Alternatively, if you are left with no choice but to covertly monitor someone, the steps above should allow you to do just that.
