Friendship is one of the best relationship, but it’s always good to be precautionary while making new friends. To know about a person before befriending him, you cannot be too probing. Then suppose, you already have a friend you are concerned about, but he is mostly busy to answer your calls. Or maybe you want to reconfirm that your partner is not cheating on you. Or you might be merely curious about your friend’s whereabouts and the places he visits without you. In all these cases you can track your friends without their knowledge using some very conveniently available apps.

Does SpyMyFone offer complete incognito?

As already mentioned earlier, SpyMyFone allows me to track my friend’s phone without his knowledge. It comes well equipped with all the requisite features to enable to maximise invisibility and stealth, which at times become the prime necessity. Once the app is installed, the icon is deleted. In spite of jailbreaking or rooting of the device, it is impossible to find out that the phone is being tracked. Even with technical wizards will find it challenging to realise the presence of SpyMyFone in his mobile.

How to track my friend's iPhone without Him Knowing?

Another method that I have found out to track my friends using iPhone is the ‘Find My Friends’ app from Apple. Some of the benefits of this app:

  • Being an official app of Apple, it is easy to download from the App Store.
  • Even if my friends log in and use this app on his phone, he will not know that I am following him. He will only see me as a follower. It functions in absolute stealth and discreet.
  • The complete access to the phone makes it convenient to track my friends.
  • You can use it for your kid or your spouse; set alters to know when he enters and departs from any area.

Steps to track my friend’s phone:

1. Download and install the app. If your friend is an iOS 9 user, this app will be there on the phone, and thus you need not install it separately.

2. Open the Find My Friends App and click on the contact picture at the bottom-right.

Spying: The Need or not

Though at times you might feel the need of tracking your friend’s phone for the benefit of both of you, I believe it to be unsafe. To some extent I understand and agree that it is important to track my friends for their safety, but the stealth mode is something which I think can be avoided if there is clarity between two persons.

So, if you take my advice, talk to your friends and explain to them the need for such an app. If you are making a new friendship, explain to him that it’s not your distrust, but it’s your eagerness to know him more that’s making you install tracking app in his phone. If he understands, you will see that he is a genuine person. Moreover, if he’s an old friend, then I am sure he will respect your concerns and know that it’s not to spy on him, but it’s to give you peace of mind.

However, during certain times in a relationship, it becomes necessary to probe into the privacy and that too in incognito mode to re-install faith.

The SpyMyFone app is an excellent parental control app also. If you have a young kid, you must try using it. With the never-ending curiosity, adolescent kids are highly prone to dangers. Easy access to the internet and social networking sites have further increased this danger. SpyMyFone will enable you with comprehensive remote control access to your kid’s mobile. You will know not only his location but also his mobile and internet usage habit. Thus, you can educate him on proper internet etiquettes, control his screen time and buy yourself some peace of mind.
