Are you in a serious relationship? And are you worried about whom your boyfriend is texting? Have you noticed a change in his behavior towards you? Is he perhaps spending too much time on his phone? Won’t he let you look at his messages?
There are many reasons why you might want to see your boyfriend’s text messages. Therefore, the question that begs is, how do you monitor your boyfriend’s text messages without touching his phone?
The basic answer to the question posited above is that you can install an SMS tracking app that will monitor his text messages.
COVID-19: The global pandemic and its impact on our social and intimate relationships
Before we consider ways to monitor your partner’s text messages, let’s look at the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its impact on the world as we know it.
The world is almost through 2020. It is arguably the most challenging year that the global population has faced since the end of World War II in September 1945.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus has caused untold damage as it has rampaged and continues to sweep across the world. Statistically speaking, to date, there are over 33 million infections with the United States and India leading the way with circa 7.2 million and 5.92 million infections, respectively.
The John Hopkins University data reported that the USA had reached its highest daily rate of infections on Friday, 25 September 2020, with 55 054 cases. And after the European summer, countries like France, Spain, and the UK are starting to see daily infection numbers climb.
The Independent.co.uk reported that the UK’s virus R rate or the reproduction rate has risen to between 1.2 and 1.5 as the number of infections increased by 60% in a week.
These are just a few of the statistics that seem to indicate that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
This novel coronavirus is incredibly infectious and spreads rapidly via person-to-person transmission. Therefore, one of the only ways to control the virus’s spread is for the world’s population to self-isolate or social distance from other people.
Consequently, global governments implemented a series of hard lockdowns or shelter-in-place orders where residents have been forced to stay at home and only go out for food, exercise, and emergency medical treatment. All non-essential businesses were closed, and employees were either laid off or furloughed. Those employees fortunate enough to be able to work from home were allowed to continue working.
Once the virus infection or R rates began dropping and had dropped significantly, governments began reopening their individual country’s economies, allowing businesses to reopen in an attempt to reboot the global economy. The challenge with allowing people to move around and interact again is how to prevent the virus numbers from increasing again.
The socio-economic impact of the virus is only beginning to be quantified.
Figures quoted in July 2020 by Ryan Morrison demonstrate that the world’s economy has lost $3.8 trillion (USD) with about 147 million people losing their jobs.
Research studies are also starting to quantify COVID-19’s impact on the human psyche. The World Health Organization stated that the most significant mental health challenges that the global population is facing are conditions such as depression and anxiety resulting from social isolation, loneliness, financial hardships, and the stress of watching family and friends contract the virus and even die from it.
No wonder intimate relationships between two parties might be strained or even face a total breakdown.
Everything you need to know about monitoring your boyfriend’s text messages
While the veracity of the need to install an app on his phone is not the salient point of this discussion, it must be noted that if you have to monitor your boyfriend’s phone conversations, there are trust issues between the two of you that might be solved by attending couple counseling or even taking time out from each other.
The harsh reality of today’s world is that many relationships hit the rocks because of issues like distrust, cheating, disloyalty, and insecurity. As highlighted above, one of the ways to solve the challenges of trust, insecurity, and loyalty is to install and use a tracking app on your boyfriend’s phone.
Here are several tips to help you succeed.
This is the part where you will need access to your boyfriend’s mobile phone without him knowing, especially if you don’t want him to know that you are monitoring his text messages. Once you have installed the app on his phone, you will no longer need access to it. All useful spy apps have a corresponding web interface that you sign up for; thereby, allowing you to monitor his phone communications.
- Monitoring and tracking all text messages
A useful spy mobile phone app will record all of the text messages sent and received on a particular phone, as highlighted above. These messages are then accessible via a web interface that the app’s owner can log into.
Therefore, the process to monitor your boyfriend’s messages is threefold:
- Buy the app or a user-license for the app.
- Install it on the phone whose messages you wish to track.
- Create a user account on the app’s web interface where you can monitor all sent and received messages.
- Additional features
Different phone apps have additional features, including the monitoring and tracking of all communications that occur on the phone, including social media chats like WhatsApp chats, phone numbers called and received, geolocation tracking, and photos taken with the mobile phone’s camera.
Therefore, when deciding which app to buy, it’s a good idea to consider all the available features versus what features you need and what features are nice to have. Once you have considered all of these points, the next step is to buy a user-license for the app of your choice.
Spying apps are the perfect solution to spy on your boyfriend’s mobile phone conversations if you do not trust him. Juxtapositionally, as a couple, you might choose to install a spy app on each other’s phones as a practical trust-earning mechanism.
