We are going to briefly explore all of the features later. So, how do you get access to someone’s text messages? Follow this step-by-step guide for the installation process:

  1. Go to the official website of Xnspy.
  2. Tap on the “Buy Now” button. And subscribe to the edition that best suits your needs. The basic edition does not offer many features in terms of functionality. So we would suggest you go with the premium edition.
  3. Now, since it is an Android smartphone, you are required to have physical access to the phone. There is no other option. Any other app claiming that you can use it without installing it on the Android device is nothing but a lie. Android phones do not support such functionality. However, in case of any issue, customer support shall give you online assistance.
  4. After subscribing to the app, wait for an email that will contain further information for you, such as an activation code, a download link, login credentials to your web account, and installation instructions.
  5. Once you have received the email and done with installation and download, you will have to wait for a day to two during this period, the app will become functional and would have uploaded all the data from the phone to your web account from where you can access it through the app’s dashboard.
