To be nosy is an innate human trait—it’s just the intensity that varies with every individual. But being desperate is one thing and to be digitally proactive is another. Hacking into someone’s cell phone or computer isn’t one of the most viable ways to do it, especially if it’s about spying on someone’s Skype. It’s just not worth it. But we have got a simpler solution that’s as easy as playing Simcity. All you need to is to download and install this app XnSpy onto the target person’s cellphone and ta-dah! You are almost there. But let’s break down the whole procedure in a more exhaustive manner.
Step 1: Get XNSPY
Xnspy is one the leading mobile spying apps with an international stature. Spying through mobile apps is far from hacking into someone’s device. The idea is simple though. All you need is to download and install this app onto the target device whose Skype logs you want to access.
For now, the app is compatible with iOS and Android devices only. This is how you can download and install it.
For Android: To download this app onto an Android device, all you have to do is to paste the download URL (that’s sent to you via email after subscribing to Xnspy) on the target device’s internet browser. The app will ask for a ton of permissions to access phone logs like call logs, SMS, emails, internet browsing history, calendar entries, and social media apps, including Skype (that’s what the app is supposed to do). Allow them and you will be done with the installation in just a few seconds.
For iOS: Spying an iOS could get a little tricky because the app requires a jailbreak. If your device isn’t jailbroken already, try using these tips from iPhoneHacks to get it done. Now considering you have a jailbreak iOS device, this is how you can do it:
1.Download Xnspy onto your computer with iTunes installed on it.
2.Connect your iOS device to your computer and install XNSPY using iTunes.
Step 2: Using XNSPY Dashboard to spy on Skype
Getting the app onto the target device is a job half done. The other part is to use this app’s Control Panel to spy on Skype logs that include call logs, chats and multimedia and contacts. But first, you need to know how to use the Dashboard.
2.Enter your credentials (username and password that will be provided to you on subscribing to XNSPY).
3.On the Control Panel, you can add a device by providing the unique code that’s given to you on the installation of the app on the target device.
Step 3: Monitoring Skype calls
After the device is added, you will be directed to the phone logs you can access from the monitored device. From the Instant Messengers tab, you can choose “Skype” to access call logs, chats, photos, videos, audio and even contacts from this app.
XNSPY Dashboard—spy on Skype from your smartphone
If you think the online control panel isn’t your thing, you can also try the Dashboard app that’s designed for smartphones. This is one of the biggest reasons why one should go for this app to spy on Skype (the other being affordable). The only downside: the app is available for Android only.
With this dashboard app, you can do just everything that the online control panel can.
XnSpy isn’t an app just for spying on Skype, rather it’s a complete smartphone monitoring app using which you can access:
1.Phone logs like calls, SMS, emails, internet browsing history, calendar entries and contacts.
2.Call logs, chat, and multimedia from other social media apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Viber, Line, Kik and iMessage.
3.Chat and multimedia from Tinder dating app.
4.GPS logs, including real-time location and location history logs.
Apart from the aforementioned, it also has some remote commands that can be used to lock or factory reset the target device. You can also take a remote screenshot using this app.
A word on mobile spying
Hacking is illegal, but mobile spying isn’t. You can spy on any device that’s under your legal ownership but is used by someone else, only after taking their consent. That’s all folks! XNSPY is available for only $8.33/month. You can download it from here.
