If your husband is doing something wrong and no conversations can help, you may need WhatsApp tracking apps to monitor his messages and to know more. Well, your husband is hiding something. If you are sure that it can be cheating or secret affairs, you have a right to know it. According to the statistics, WhatsApp is the most popular messenger in the United States, and probably, your spouse uses it for chatting, too.

If nothing is working, you can use WhatsApp tracking apps to eventually reveal what’s going on in your spouse’s life. But you should know when it is indispensable, how to do it in the best way, and the risks of that. Let’s start!

Reasons to Track His WhatsApp Messages

Specifically, what kind of behavior may indicate that something unpleasant is going on behind your back?

  • He Keeps Late Night

If you are in trustful relationships and you know that he may spend a lot of time at work, no worries, of course.

But what if he keeps lately for some time, refuses to talk about it, and diligently hides everything connected with those “overnight” activities? Well, it might be very, very bad, at least.

  • Unnecessary Disputes

It is always better to solve all problems with communication, but unfortunately, it is not always possible. If the quarrels always rise, and you both cannot stop it, then some kind of action is needed.

  • He is Always Chatting

When everything you see is his fingers typing something, and he refuses to talk about it and behaves himself as nothing is happening, it is the reason for suspects, at least.If he is always chatting, refuses to talk with you about it, pays almost no attention to you, then it’s clear signs that you should do something, including even WhatsApp tracking apps installation.

  • He Spends a Lot of Time with His Device

Not only chatting, but you always see him with his device, and still, he says nothing about it. He can even be irritated when you try to raise this theme.Well, it’s a severe sign to revise your relationships.

  • You Suspect a Hidden Affair

Even if you are sure that he isn’t cheating, he can be planning some affair or be involved in suspicious activity. Is he excited sometimes, and those periods of excitement are quickly changed with periods of distress? Is it tension in all his words or actions? Does he refuse to talk even on common themes and become highly paranoid? It can be signs that something terrible is going on.

You can read here a complete guide about suspicious behavior. And we’ll move further and explore WhatsApp tracking apps that enable you to know more about the reasons for such behavior.

Apps to Use in Tracking WhatsApp Messages

How to track WhatsApp messages? There is much different spyware; the function for revealing WhatsApp messages is one of the basic.

Reading about Whatsapp tracking apps, you’ll frequently find the terms “rooting” and “jailbreaking.” You can read more here for the former and here for the latter. Rooting is made for Android phones and jailbreaking for iOS ones: they provide full access to operational systems and may be required for some spyware’s functions, including WhatsApp call logs tracking. It’s more convenient if a spying app provides the ability to track WhatsApp without rooting or jailbreaking.

One of the most complex parts will probably be obtaining the PIN to unlock your husband’s phone and Apple ID in the case of the iPhone. Without them, you won’t be able to install any of the tools specified.

Let’s explore tools for tracking WhatsApp messages!


SpyBubble provides a set of features that enable tracking messages and record calls. It is helpful for WhatsApp message tracking: straightforward and swift to install. Like every other app from the list, it hides on the target phone.

The SpyBubble dashboard from its official site

However, a significant disadvantage of SpyBubble is its price: currently, it offers only a monthly subscription, which is expensive, comparing with other apps that provide yearly subscriptions (it will cost you more than $300/year). But if you need to spy only for 1-2 months, SpyBubble will be a good choice.

Another inconvenience is the lack of live support on its website. 


It is a powerful WhatsApp tracking app, despite being expensive. It provides a wide range of features, from call tracking to direct access to the device.

On the compatibility/pricing page, you can find complete information about its features for different platforms, for its installation, and prices. You need $349/year for a full version, enabling you to track WhatsApp calls in real-time.

The Premium Edition is enough to read WhatsApp messages, and it costs $149/month; but if you know that your husband prefers to speak by voice, it’s better to use a full version.

They propose an easy way to pre-install FlexiSPY on the phone for $49.99. It includes rooting or jailbreaking of the device. Check limitations for the devices before installation.


Another powerful WhatsApp tracking app, XNSPY, provides an astonishing range of features at a very affordable price. Those are messages and location tracking, full access to the target device, and direct access to the mic and camera.

It costs only $149.99/year for a full version, comparing with FlexiSpy. They offer discounts sometimes. The basic version provides a tool for watching WhatsApp photos only; thus, you need a full version.

The XNSPY demo dashboard

The installation is quick and comfortable; the 24/7 living chat support is available on the website. The dashboard of the app is minimalistic and convenient: all necessary tools are easily accessed. The app is convenient, stable, easy to use, and has a very affordable price.

For full access to WhatsApp, you’ll need to root the target Android device: that means that you should root your husband’s phone if he hasn’t rooted it yet. For iOS devices, no jailbreak is required, which is a clear advantage.


This application provides a set of necessary tools for tracking messages in different messengers and social networks.

The app has quite a strange marketing strategy. If you visit its pricing section for any operational system, you’ll find that they offer an enormous discount from the basic price, which is (or should be) as high as $959.99/year for the iOS target phone! Probably it is the strange way they use to promote their application.

Compared to XNSPY, for example, the range of features of Minspy is limited. Still, you’ll have access to WhatsApp and its messages. Despite its strange marketing strategy, you can be sure that the actual price is $119.99/year for Android and $129.99/year for iOS, which is cheaper than many other apps.

The Minspy dashboard from the demo version enables you to see what is possible with the app.

If your aim is WhatsApp tracking, Minspy is a good choice. Most of the features, including WhatsApp tracking itself, require no rooting or jailbreaking, which is a clear advantage.


Spyier website seems to be very similar to that of Minspy. Their prices are identical, even with that strange marketing strategy with lifetime discounts. Features are almost identical: there is no need to write about them again here. We’re even wondering: maybe it is one app, just presented under two labels?

You can check the facilities of the application via the demo dashboard, too. It will show you the practical and easy interface of the app, where you’ll be able to track WhatsApp messages of your husband.

Can You Track Without His Permission?

In reality, no. Probably, it is obvious. Less obvious is the fact that invasion of someone’s private life is a criminal offense. Interestingly enough, almost 50% of people in the United States and the United Kingdom either think that it isn’t or don’t know, according to the survey.

The information is taken from

Remember that using WhatsApp tracking apps is considered an invasion of private life and leads to legal actions. You can read more here, for example. Using WhatsApp tracking apps for snooping private messages can also be detrimental to relationships in general.

Still, there are very polar opinions about the rightness of message snooping. If you feel that you should know what’s going on in your spouse’s phone, it’s no reason to blame yourself. Just weigh everything: the reasons why you’ll do that, the context of your relationships and why you want them to persist, the probability of being caught, other consequences of your actions. After that, decide.

What If You’re Caught?

Bad news. Your husband has checked his phone and has found your Whatsapp tracking app on it. His suspicions will be obvious: you are possibly the only person with him most of the time. There probably will be a serious talk, perhaps a quarrel. Then it can even reach the court.

As you can guess from the statistic provided in the previous section, it is a chance that there will be no court: everything depends on your relationships and the character of your husband. But, such probability always exists: he has a full right to go to court and report his suspicions. 

If your guilt is proven, you will be punished: you can read about it here in detail. 

The most severe punishment for privacy invasion in the U.S. is up to 7 years in prison! In practice, of course, it won’t be the case if you were spying on your spouse. But you can be fined up to $2500 and be arrested for up to 30 days.

To punish you, your husband should prove that it was you who installed that spyware. It is not easy if you’ll not reveal everything by yourself. WhatsApp tracking apps can be removed without a trace, and there is no direct information that it was you who installed those apps. 

The best case will be if you’ll be able to conversate sincerely after you being caught. If your husband is not going to take the case to court, explain to him the reason why it was necessary. It is the chance that your relationships will even improve: after your husband understand that you did it out of desperation, he can revise his behavior.

Good or bad, it’s better never be caught. Again, weigh everything before your actions. If nothing else works, then, and only then, start to install WhatsApp tracking softwares.


It is always better to solve everything with a simple talk. However, it isn’t always possible in reality.

According to these statistics, more than 40% of couples have a secret account to protect themselves from their partners. Almost the same percentage of people tried to access the partner’s account at least once, even after the breakage.

You see, the desire to know more about the partner is normal. You shouldn’t blame yourself if you want this. But you should clearly understand all possible consequences of your actions. 

Be also ready to learn the installation process of the app of your choice, to proceed quickly.
