With all the stories floating around about conversations being tapped and people being spied on, perhaps some of you may wonder what it’s like to be an NSA agent. Thanks to iOS , you too can now be one of those who are feared and, possibly, loathed! Yes, you too can now spy on your partners messages without the use of Tracking or Spy Software.

For this to work you must both be using the same Apple ID and both phone numbers must be set under that Apple ID. To check out whether this is the case.
Steps to Setup iOS Spy :
- Open Settings
- Tap on Message
- Make sure you are signed in with the Apple ID and tap on Send and Receive
- There you will see a list of the phone numbers associated with that specific ID
- Tap on your partner’s phone number
- Tap on the Heading “You can be reached by iMessage at” and check that your number is listed there
This will tell you which phone numbers are linked to your ID. If both you and your partner are using that Apple ID and your settings are correct you will now receive any text messages that are sent to your partner. Test it out by sending a message yourself – if it appears on your phone, the settings are right.
All joking aside, it must be said that we do not advocate spying on other people. As well as being an invasion of privacy it could turn out to be embarrassing! It would appear that this feature has always been in iOS but something got mixed up and now, for all common ID’s that are shared with someone else, you will need to go in and manually change the settings so that you only receive what you should receive.

To do that, follow the steps above and, when you get to the last step, remove any numbers that you do not relate to your phone – i.e. if your spouse is listed under your phone number remove it. And vice versa, or you could find the tables have been turned.
