SMS spy software (also called SMS spyware) enables you to spy on and track any cell phone that has one of these spyware apps installed on it. It’s not a “virus” or “Trojan” as some people often refer to it as. SMS spy apps are a commercial monitoring and tracking app that is marketed towards anyone who has a need to spy and track a cell phone.
The way it works is quite simple. You set up an online account that all the logs will be sent to that are recorded on the phone. You then get your hands on the phone and install the sms spy app directly on the phone using the phone’s web browser. Once the sms spy software is installed, you then perform a few simple configuration steps such as choosing which items you want to spy on (text messages, photos, emails, call logs, etc.) and if you want to track the phone. After completing the set up, the SMS spyware will start to record all the data that you have chosen, and then upload this data to the online account that you had set up at time of purchase. Now you just log into your account, and you can view everything collected on the spy phone.
In summary, you download the sms spy app using the phone’s browser, go through a few installation steps, and then you log into your online account to view all the recorded logs. That’s it.
