How to set up mSpy for iPhone monitoring

In order to start monitoring your iPhone there are just a few simple steps to be done:

1. First of all it is necessary to activate the iCloud backup on the monitored device. Please open Settings – click on Apple settings – find ‘iCloud’ – open ‘iCloud backup’ and turn ON ‘iCloud Backup’.

Then please press a Back Up Now button. All further backups will be done automatically while the target iPhone is charging, connected to the Wi-Fi and the screen is locked(the phone is not in use).

2. It is also important to know the target phone’s Apple ID and password. These credentials should be entered on the installation wizard, and then you will be able to select the device that you wish to monitor from the list of devices connected to this ID.

Note! It is also possible to monitor one iPhone if that device is linked to the common Apple Family account.

Important! In case 2-factor authentication is enabled on your target iPhone, please follow the next steps to switch it OFF for smooth monitoring

In case you want to proceed with enabled 2-factor authentication
