WhatsApp is one of the mainstream social apps used by more than 500 million users per month. According to the company, the number of monthly users has been following an upward movement, and current projections do not predict a decrease in the number of users. One of the main selling points of WhatsApp is the privacy it provides to users. The social media app boasts of an end-to-end encryption that prevents third parties from spying on the conversations that occur among two or more users. 

Inasmuch as this encryption program sounds nice – and some may even argue that it protects the conversation that occurs between two individuals – it still has some downsides. This encryption prevents a parent from finding the cyberbully that has been trolling one of their kids. Or, prevent a spouse from gaining access to the messages that his partner has been having with an anonymous individual, in the middle of the night. Although an end-to-end encryption sounds nice because it comes with some benefits, you should also know that whatever has advantages also has disadvantages. 

The encryption that WhatsApp offers can be misused by anyone. Now that you know this, you should install on your device (Android or iOS) to keep tabs on who your kids talk with, or who has been trying to steal your partner’s attention. Several apps can be used to track WhatsApp messages on any device. You may be wondering, which app is the best one? Well, you do not have to worry, this article will provide you with the top apps that can be used to know how you can track a phone of your kid. 

Top apps that can be used to track WhatsApp messages

  • Spyzie
  • mSpy
  • Minspy


Spyzie is a popular app when it comes to phone monitoring. Even though this app is known for tracking the real-time location of multiple phones, the developers jinxed it up by adding a WhatsApp-tracking feature. Furthermore, the app can be used to monitor other activities on the target device. For example, you can monitor the incoming and outgoing phone messages and calls, browsing activities, contacts info, pictures and videos, and installed apps. 

Many users consider Spyzie a one-stop shop when it comes to monitoring a target device. To cap it all, the app offers a variety of language to the users. As you may have guessed, all these features are not offered for free, even though there is a trial version. You have to pay a monthly subscription to gain full access to all the apps offered. 

To use the app, all you have to do is download and install the app. Just so you know, there are no complexities attached with installing the app; it is just as easy as installing WhatsApp. If you are thinking the owner of the target device will be aware that you are monitoring his or her phone, then you are wrong. The app offers a plethora of features, all while working incognito. After installation, what’s next? The steps shown below will guide you on how to use the app.

Step 1: Spyzie offers a variety of monthly plans to its users, pick which plan best suits your needs. After that, you will need to create an account, seeing as you are a new user. Again, creating an account is as easy as ABC. 


Step 2: After creating a Spyzie account on your phone, you will have to do the same on the target device that you wish to monitor its WhatsApp messages. Also, you have to provide certain information about the target device on your Spyzie account. 


Step 3: To begin monitoring WhatsApp messages on the target device, open the Spyzie dashboard on the left hand side of the screen and choose the WhatsApp option.



mSpy is a popular tracking app that has garnered positive reviews from users all over the world. Like Spyzie, this app is in a stealth mode; that is, whoever WhatsApp you are monitoring will be completely aware of what you are doing.

Once that individual being monitored becomes aware, it defeats the whole purpose of monitoring. mSpy works perfectly with Android and iOS devices, which, as it happens, is the operating system that most devices come with. Not only does mSpy allow you to track WhatsApp, but you can also do more. mSpy shows you incoming and outgoing WhatsApp messages alongside time and date stamps.

So, this means that you can become privy to the chat history of whosoever is talking to your child or partner if you so choose. Also, you can know who the target chats with or calls (via Whatsapp) the most. So, how do you operate the app? Shown below are the steps on how to use the app

Step 1: Visit mSpy’s website, then select one of the plans they offer to mobile phone users.


Step 2: After selecting a plan, register, then download and install mSpy. 


Step 3: Open the mSpy dashboard and select WhatsApp messages – you can find it on the left-hand panel. Now you can view every incoming and outgoing WhatsApp message on the target device. 



Minspy allows you to access the WhatsApp messages of another person using your phone. Not only can you read WhatsApp messages, but also you can get the contact info of who the target is chatting with. This particular feature can come in very handy when your child is being bullied by an anonymous person. Or, your partner is always chatting with someone, and whenever you ask, all you get is the pseudo phrase “it’s work.” Minspy allows you to view every media file that is either sent or received.

Lastly, even a message has been deleted, you can still view it. For Android users, you need to download the Minspy app on your phone and the target’s phone. For iOS users, you only need to use the web app.
