Hi all,
Does anyone know if there is a way to monitor a mobile without having access to the phone itself.

I want to see what my son is getting up to.
Now, I know there is software such as SPYFONE available but I would need access to the phone. Also, I have read the reviews and it does not make good reading.

Some of the reviews give the email addresses of hackers that can allegedly do it remotely.

Has anyone had any experience of this.

What phone is it?

It is an iPhone 7+
No. Well, not without location to 3 surrounding masts and their data to allow you to triangulate.

Would you want someone to be able to track you without your permission?

They seem to be able to do it on the increasingly unbelievable, ridiculous 'Hunted' on Channel 4
Indeed, braniac.

Hunters: 'I think we've spotted the fugitive'

yeah, it might be the 2 cameramen and the sound engineer with him that gave him away.
Depends how old Michael's son is.

It wouldn't bother me if someone was checking my phone, as I've nothing to hide.
Absolutely, Zacs. There is nothing about this programme that is remotely believable - and why do the partners/relations of those hunted just calmly let the hunters in, and hand over their computers and phones? I'd tell them to get lost!
It's not possible without some software on the other persons phone.

Yes...you are to have to have access.

How old is your son?

I don't approve of monitoring calls/texts without explicit permission - but if you are paying the bills and your son is under 18, then I think it perfectly reasonable to insist that the iPhone is included in your Family Group of devices.

You can then monitor its location via the FindMy app that is a standard part of all iPhones - unless your son deliberately disables the App - which might tell you something interesting anyway.

That sounds reasonable - at least it includes the young man in knowing that monitoring is going on - which is a far cry from the implicit desire to spy on him that is carried in the wording of the OP.
Andy - I think you're reading too much into the OP.
mmmm - // Andy - I think you're reading too much into the OP. //

I only have the OP, and the rather sniffy reply - "It wouldn't bother me if someone was checking my phone, as I've nothing to hide."

I don't buy that for a minute, EVERYONE has something to hide, that's just human nature.
