Do you have a reason to keep tabs on an iPhone? Then you might be concerned about how to spy on a phone without access to it; along with preferred choices for iPhone monitoring.
It is not always mandatory to deploy mobile apps to be able to monitor an iPhone or iPad.
If you need monitoring for an iPhone or iPad, and you don’t need the complete full-range of monitoring features, and you’ve got access to iCloud credentials of the monitored device, your perfect alternative is Webwatcher for iOS
Fortunately it is very simple to get going all that is required is to log into your WebWatcher web based account and register the Apple ID & Security password of the device to monitor. With WebWatcher, there is no software program to download, therefore you do not need to jailbreak the iPhone or iPad. WebWatcher will start recording activity whenever the device backs up to iCloud, typically once per day provided that iCloud credentials are valid and iCloud is properly enabled. Log into your WebWatcher account from any computer to see all captured data in a user friendly web user interface. See all activity including texts, pictures, internet history and call log record.
No Jailbreak Required. Webwatcher does not need the device to be jailbroken. Beware of competitors that require you to “Jailbreak” your iPhone or iPad (complicated and voids your warranty).
Undetected and Tamper Proof
Webwatcher Mobile is undetectable and therefore cannot be tampered with or deleted by teens or staff members. It does not appear on the iPhone or iPad as an iphone app. Webwatcher Mobile can’t be interfered with as along as iCloud is enabled and credentials do not change.

What’s jailbreaking? Jailbreaking is the act of modifying the iPhone software to remove any restrictions set by Apple. The primary constraint is that applications can only be downloaded and installed from the App Store. With a jailbroken phone you can install applications from a rival to the App Store, and also manually using files downloaded from the internet.
Jailbreaking an iPhone is not the same thing as unlocking it. iPhones are usually offered for sale as part of an agreement locking it to a specific cellular network.
There are many reasons to jailbreak an iPhone; but it can lead to complications.
Anytime Apple updates its operating system, those who jailbreak the device are left out in the cold. As soon as the user plugs their jailbroken iPhone into their computer to download new software, Apple closes the operating system and installs the new update. That means that if a user wants a new version of Apple’s software, but still wants to maintain all the jailbroken features, they’re out of luck. Apple doesn’t want users to jailbreak its smartphones. And it does everything it can with each new update to stop that. So, if an update is really important to a user, it’s probably best not to jailbreak the smartphone in the first place.
Your battery life could suffer: Some third-party apps and processes care very little about how much power they pull from your iOS device. If you’re running some of these things on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, your battery could drain in short order.
Your phone could become less stable: Say what you will about the sometimes-quirky nature of the App Store’s approval process, at least apps have been vetted-hopefully to the point where they shouldn’t take down the entire device when they crash. There’s no guarantee that apps offered via Cydia will be as stable.
