Time To Install!

  • Now, as you are ready with all the information of your selected spy software, then follow these steps:
  • Visit the official website of the software and register yourself with a valid email address.
  • A few websites might ask you for email address somewhere later, as it is for the online dashboard they provide you.
  • Make your purchase by clicking the ‘Buy’ button and once the transaction is complete, you will see a download link.
  • Click the link and it will start downloading the software and once it is complete, it will ask for an activation code.
  • This code is generally sent on the email address you have registered with. So you can find it there and fill it into the target device.
  • As soon as you enter the code, the software will be activated and you are done.
  • However, most of the spy softwares will ask you to restart the phone, and it is better to do that.
  • One important thing is to delete or clear the web browsing history from the target phone’s browser, so that the other person never finds out.

Adjust the Settings!

Some spy programs offer configuration of the settings on the online dashboard, where you can set reporting intervals and notifications. However, some will ask you about these during the installation process.


Now your software installation is complete and you can begin monitoring your target. In some cases, tracking and reporting generally starts around 30 minutes after the installation. Also check How Does Cell Phone Spy Software Works.

How to check reports on online dashboard?

All the dashboards generally work in a similar manner, though they might differ in options. To log into your dashboard, enter your username and password generated at the time of registration. For example, if you are using FlexiSPY, then its online portal is called “FlexiSPY” as shown in the picture below.


On this reporting portal, you will find everything you need to monitor- GPS tracking details of the target device, text messages, call logs, contact list, and other media present in the device. Some websites also offer demo version of their online portals, so you can use it to check functionality of all screen options.

Now, you must have a general idea of the overall installation procedure of a spy software. Always follow the program instructions exactly, so as to get complete success.
