There are many reasons you might want to monitor the text messages your loved ones are sending and receiving. Perhaps you are concerned about their safety or wellbeing. Perhaps you are worried that they’re up to no good. No matter your reasons, you don’t have to resort to sneaky habits like checking their phone when they’re not looking. You can check their messages remotely by installing an SMS tracker on their device.
At this point, you may have some questions or misconceptions about SMS trackers and how they’re used. We’ll share some myths about this technology and debunk them at the same time.
What are the 6 SMS tracking app myths you should know?
Myth 1: You can install the SMS tracker without accessing the target phone.
Technology has yet to introduce a phone spy app that can be installed without physical access to the target phone. You still need to get the target phone and install the tracking app manually. You may have heard of techniques that will let you spy on a cellphone without installing an app, but they are usually illegal or used only by law enforcement.
Myth 2: You cannot upgrade the cell phone spy app without access to the target device.
You can directly upgrade the app without the target device on hand. Users can switch from Free version to Pro version anytime through the web control panel.
Myth 3: You can track the target phone with a mobile number, even without installing the tracking app.
It is impossible to track and monitor the target phone with just a mobile number unless it has the SMS tracker installed. If you are suspicious about the owner of the phone, find a way to install an app that can also track their location and show you a history of their whereabouts even without GPS.
Myth 4: It’s illegal to use a spy app on cell phones.
No, it’s not always illegal to spy on a mobile phone. Many countries allow digital phone surveillance for legitimate reasons including employee monitoring and digital parenting. As long as you follow the regulations in your country or state, you may be able to legally install an SMS tracker and/or spy app on the phone.
Installing a spy app on a phone you own and pay for is legal in every country.
Myth 5: It is difficult to install an SMS tracking app.
You don’t need to hire a techie to install an SMS tracker. Just find an app like Easy Logger, which is relatively straightforward and simple to install and use. It only takes a few minutes to set up once you have downloaded and installed the APK app file. It is also easy to configure the reporting parameters and the alerts you want to receive when certain events occur. Once everything is set, Easy Logger will start working and deliver daily or weekly emails with the tracking logs.
Myth 6: It’s expensive to use an SMS Tracking app.
Not at all! With Easy Logger, you have the option to use a free SMS tracker. With a free account, you get daily email reports on texts and calls from the target phone and configure the daily reporting time.
And if you want more features, you may want to consider upgrading to a Pro account to get advanced add-ons like an online dashboard to access all texts and calls in real time, reports on deleted call and message logs, remote monitoring of live device location, configurable alerts, reports on app usage history, and more.
Easy Logger Pro is just $4.50 per tracked phone with monthly billing, but you can save up to 25% if you get a yearly subscription.
