How To Hack Into Someone's iMessage

iMessage is designed to be secure and provide end-to-end encryption for its users. While there are many reasons a parent may need to hack iMessage, Apple designed it to be so secure that even spy agencies would not be able to read its messages.

That's not to say that it is impossible, just that signficantly sophisticated technology will need to be used to get someone's iMessages.

In this article, we will tell you how to hack someone's iMessage.

How To Hack Someone's iMessage Without Them Knowing

The only way to hack iMessage is to use a spy app. These tools can be used remotely, without installation on the target iPhone, if you know their iCloud credentials. If you are able to physically access the target device and install the app, many more features will be available for your to use.

If you don't have the iCloud information for your child's iPhone, don't assume that you can not access the phone for long enough to not arouse suspicion. There are usually plenty of opportunities that people overlook, such as borrowing the iPhone to make a call which should provide you with plenty of time to install one of these tools.

1. uMobix

uMobix is what I use to hack my son's iMessage and track his iPhone. I didn't have to install anything on his iPhone because I have his iCloud information. But, if you don't have their iCloud credentials, installation takes about 5 minutes.

In addition to making it possible to hack into someone's iMessages, the uMobix app provides access to more social media apps than any other tool available including Tinder, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram, WhatsApp, Skype, TikTok, Telegram, Snapchat, and Zoom.

Although I intended to use it to hack into iMessage, this tool proved more useful for giving me full control over his target iPhone. I can monitor and track his movements, with his location overlayed on a map but what blew my mind was being able to activate the microphone and front or rear cameras at will. It's amazing what people say when they think no one is listening.

As an odd addition, uMobix has a spy app detection feature which will alert you to other spy apps that are already installed on the cell phone. While this initially seemed like an odd feature, it does provide a lot of peace of mind knowing that no one else is tracking your kid.

Live 24/7 tech support is available by phone, which can be a lifesaver if you are trying to install the app in a limited amount of time, but I can't imagine it being necessary as it's pretty simple to do.

I have no complaints except that intercepted data only stays available for 30 days. But, I'm only taking away a half star for it since this limit is higher on multi-month plans.

2. EyeZy

EyeZy is a new and quite powerful cell phone spy app that can hack iMessage. Exploiting iCloud syncing gives access to iMessage as well as the person's GPS location, photos, videos, contacts, SMS messages, and e-mails.

If you can get physical access to the target iPhone, eyeZy provides more advanced capabilities that include:

  • Keystroke Capture
  • Website Browsing History
  • Alerts for specific activity
  • Call logs
  • Geofencing

One of the most impressive features is its ability to spy on every major social media app including Facebook, Tinder, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Skype, KiK, and Instagram to read their text messages. This tool is also compatible with every iOS version dating back to 2014, which gives it the widest compatibility of any spy app I have seen.

  • Access all social media apps
Cons
  • Not quite as powerful as uMobix

3. FlexiSpy

FlexiSpy is not as user-friendly as other mobile spy apps, which is why it doesn't rank higher on this list of ways to hack iMessage, but it employs the most advanced security technology currently available. It too remains totally hidden and can record Skype, Facetime, and Facebook video calls.

  • Call Logs
  • All Text Messages
  • Monitor Social Media Content, including Facebook
  • Search History
  • Keylogger
  • Compatible with all versions of Android and iOS

To me, the most alluring feature of FlexiSpy is its ability to take control over the hardware on the cell phone. Once this app is on the target iPhone, it allows you to silently activate the front and rear cameras or turn on the microphone and listen as the target's iPhone spies for you.

Unfortunately, FlexiSpy has two problems, and those are why it ranks #3 on our list. The website is outdated and the application is expensive, but it would be a mistake to let either of these things turn you away from this marvel.

Pros
  • Extremely powerful
  • Live camera streaming
  • Pre-loaded iPhones
  • GPS tracking
  • Microphone access
  • Call recording
Cons
  • Older interface
  • Expensive

4. mSpy

Although not as user-friendly as the other options, mSpy is a proven spy app with a history going back quite a few years and a wide range of features. Perhaps more importantly, mSpy is totally hidden from the user when in stealth mode and anyone using the iPhone will never be aware that it is operating in the background.

In addition to hacking iMessage, it has a long list of spying capabilities but these are just the highlights:

  • Call Log Details
  • All SMS Text Messages
  • Monitor Social Media Content, including Facebook
  • Search History
  • Keylogger
  • Compatible with all versions of Android and iOS

Deleted text messages can be recovered easily and it can also block calls on the target iPhone.

mSpy is the best monitoring software for tech-savvy users that need to find a solution that gives them the greatest access to the target device.
