How to Use an iOS Spy App: Jailbroken Vs Non-jailbroken iOS Devices

Have you ever used an iOS spy app on a non-jailbroken device? Do you think it can be very tricky to use a non-jailbroken device as compared to a jailbroken one? If you have been looking for an easy-to-use, hassle free app and have given up, hold on for a moment. There’s still hope for you. Xnspy is one of the most convenient ways of monitoring a target device without actually holding it in your hand each time you want to check things up. You can get into things like the gallery, videos, emails, text messages, chats, and browsing history using this app.

You can rest assured that your tracks would remain hidden and the app remains untraceable. However, some slight technical aspects may differ in the way Xnspy works on jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices.

First Things First – Subscription and Installation

  • Setting Up the iOS Spy App on Jailbroken Devices

The first step before you can use the app is to subscribe to its services. At as low as $9 per month for the Basic and $13 for the Premium version, you can get a complete package of highly effective monitoring features. Upon subscribing, you will receive an email with the link to the download. Clicking it will start a five-minute protocol. Using this app on a jailbroken device is very easy.

Once the download completes, you will have to follow simple prompts and then enter the activation code, which is also in the email. However, in the case of the non-jailbroken device, you do not have to download or install the app. It uses iCloud.

Usually, all iOS device users use their iCloud for backups. This requires enabling regular backups so that they can avoid losing all their data in the event that the iOS device spoils or goes stolen. The first step for using Xnspy on a non-jailbroken device is first making sure that the target device has enabled synchronization with iCloud. If it hasn’t, take a moment to do this, using the target person’s iCloud credentials. Users will receive an email mentioning the instructions, or you can always contact their live customer service. You will receive a link to your control panel, where you will receive all the backed up data from the target person’s iCloud.

Comparing Usage of the App on Jailbroken and Non-jailbroken Devices

Before you read on, it’s important to mention that it is always better to avoid jailbreaking a device. The obvious reasons are that jailbroken devices are easier targets for hackers. Besides, it affects the operating system installed on the target device, which can lead to other technical issues. It can also cause malfunctions with other apps installed on the device and make the functioning of the device very cumbersome for the user. When the target person notices issues, he or she will probably consider factory resetting. This will mean that your app will also stop working unless you go back to installing or activating the app once again.
