Yeah, you read it right, you can now spy on your friend’s/lover’s WhatsApp account if it’s locked! WhatsApp spy techniques I’m going to mention below can be used to track any contact in your list for when they come online (even if they are offline) and also to read their chats and conversation even if they are locked by some app locker!
WhatsApp Spy: How to Spy on WhatsApp?
There are 4 methods I’m going to explain, both methods are only for Android. Some are simple, some are difficult, you’ve to try them yourselves to know which one works for you. The WhatsApp spy Android methods are as follows:
Method 1: Track when they come online
By this method, you can spy on your friend/lover for the times he/she comes online. This is using an app called WhatsDog, it is a WhatsApp spy app which you can use to track other people on WhatsApp. WhatsDog WhatsApp spy app isn’t available on Play Store.
- Download WhatsDog from this link: WhatsDog: WhatsApp spy free download
- Install it, and run it. (You might want to go to Settings > Security > Check ‘Unknown Sources’, if you haven’t installed an apk on your device before).
- On startup, you’ll be asked to select a contact, select the required contact. You’ll now see a ‘Required agreement’ pop up. Just select OK, you’ll be taken to the next screen.
- Now, on this screen, you’ll be able to see the times when your selected contact comes online. This works even when the person you want to spy is hiding the online status or last seen stats.
Note: You can only use this tool for tracking one WhatsApp contact at a time. You can spy another number/contact by deleting the data of the app (option to do that is given in the app) and start from step 1 again.
Pro tip: You can use this WhatsApp spy app on many numbers/contacts if you’re having a rooted phone and Titanium backup pro installed, using the profiles option in Titanium backup.
Method 2: Read their conversations even if it’s locked!
So your friend’s WhatsApp is locked using some app locker like Smart App Lock or AppLock, and you want to find out what’s in your friend’s WhatsApp and whom they message read their chat log, Right? (You’re a stalker dude!). Well, I’ll show you how to do just that, read the following procedures :
- The first thing to is to download & install a Backup Text for Whats in your friend’s phone. This is one of the best spy apps for WhatsApp (You can install it by transferring the apk file from your phone).
- Open Backup Text, you’ll see some options – Filter by chat, Filter by date & Filter by message type. Select the appropriate categories. In filter by chat, you can filter the messages you want based on contact (that is if you want to read only chats of specific people). Similarly, you can select specific chats based on the date and type of chats (incoming or outgoing) too. Select appropriately.
- Now the next option you see will be the file type. I would suggest you select ‘txt’ from that because it is readable easily.
- Next, select ‘Export to’, you’ll see two different options: ‘SD Card’ and ‘Email’. I would suggest you go with an Email, as it will allow you to send the exported file through email right away. Select any, and you are good to go. (If selecting email, be sure to delete the mail after being sent!).
Method 3: Using WhatsApp Web!
Now, this is a very simple method that you can use to spy on your dear ones (not anyone) WhatsApp, it applies only to your dear ones because you must have an idea on when they come online and when they’ll be using WhatsApp.
I guess you already know WhatsApp has a web version called ‘WhatsApp Web’. Which basically mirrors your WhatsApp in phone to your PC/Laptop. Only thing is your phone must be connected to internet when you’re using WhatsApp Web. You can use this to spy on your dear ones (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife).
But there is a small catch, you must have physical access to their phone and must be able to open WhatsApp for a little time. You have to authorize the WhatsApp Web and the new browser on their phone. Else this method won’t work. Steps for that are mentioned below :
- Open WhatsApp on their phone, and go to the menu and find WhatsApp Web.
- In WhatsApp Web, click on the ‘+’ button on the topmost right.
- You’ll see the QR scanner option.
- Now open WhatsApp Web on your Chrome or Firefox browser (No other browser supported now).
- And point the QR scanner on the QR code in your browser.
- There you go! You now have a mirror of the WhatsApp of your loved one’s in your browser itself.
Be careful with this, don’t just open the unread WhatsApp messages as it might induce some doubts in the person whom you’re spying on. Also, they could log out from all the browsers if they knew about it. It could not be good for your relationship too!
That’s how you spy on WhatsApp, the easy way. Now, moving on to the difficult way.
Method 4: MAC address spoofing
This is a tough method to follow and is not possible without a great level of technical skills. If you’re new to all these and not into technical stuff, you’d better be off trying this method. Also, you’ll be requiring a rooted Android phone (check here to find out how to root any Android phone)
Using MAC address spoofing, you can run a copy of your target’s WhatsApp on your phone. This will require you to get your hands on their device for some time.
Find the MAC address of your target’s phone
This is the easy part. First, you’ve to find the MAC address of your target’s phone, be it Android, iPhone or Windows. Follow these steps for that :
- On Android, go to Settings > About phone > Status > Wi-Fi MAC address.
- On iPhone, Settings > General > About > Wi-Fi address.
- On Windows, Settings > About > More info > MAC address.
Now that you’ve got your target’s MAC address, you’ve to change the MAC address in your rooted Android phone. That’s a long process, I’ll leave a link for that from XDA. Click here.
After you’ve spoofed your MAC address to your target’s, install WhatsApp on your Android phone. And use your target’s phone number to log in, use the OTP from that phone when asked. Click next to the chat screen. Now you have a perfect copy of your target’s WhatsApp on your phone. Now you can easily spy on your anyone’s WhatsApp (although the steps are a little difficult in this).
