Tips on How To Spy On Someone

If you are a fan of the spy gadgets in movies, you’ll be happy to note some of them exist in real life.

Yet, for the average person, having these tools is not enough. You must also learn how to effectively spy on people.

Here are eight tips to help you:

1. Try a Keylogger and Computer App

If you want access to someone’s computer, you can install a keylogger. This will reveal their password and allow you to log in.

You can then get the information you wanted.

Such access would help many parents. That’s because they want to know what their children are doing online.

They don’t want to take the risk that their children could be talking to dangerous people online.

As such, they can check the browser history to reveal the websites accessed. They can also install a Parental Control app that blocks access to various sites.

This helps them protect their children from danger and from corruptible information.

2. Use a Mobile Phone Tracker App

With a mobile phone tracker app, you can track messages, calls, social media apps, and GPS.

This type of app is common among couples who suspect their partners of cheating. It allows insecure spouses to keep track of the suspected cheater’s activities.

Some parents also use these apps to get their children’s location.

Due to instances of kidnappings, parents want to know where their children are at all times. These spying apps help them do so.

3. Install Surveillance Cameras

Surveillance cameras such as nanny cams ensure people know what’s going on in their homes.

You can have a camera with a motion detector or one that’s active throughout. In turn, this camera connects to a network and sends you a live feed to your phone or tablet.

Due to their small size, it is possible to hide such cameras in toys and lights. The chances of people finding these hidden cameras aren’t that high.

Thus, you’ll see whoever you were hoping to catch on your video.

Put the cameras in high-traffic areas or somewhere an individual won’t bother to look. Consider placing cameras inside dummy electronic appliances or in pot plants.

Some people stick the camera on the ceiling because people rarely look up. Just, ensure the camera body is not visible in any of its hidden areas.

4. Check Reflections Through the Mirror

A sneaky yet simple technique real spies use is looking in a mirror. It shows them whether someone is following from behind.

For a citizen spy, they can use it to check out a handsome or beautiful person who is walking behind them.

Using a mirror doesn’t look suspicious unless you are holding it at an awkward angle.

You should act casual as though you are looking at your own reflection. For example, you could pretend you are removing something from your eye. No one will know the difference.

5. Buy Binoculars

It will be much easier for you to spy from a distance if you buy binoculars. Get high-quality ones that have high resolution.

Then, find a special and hidden spot to use them. Otherwise, people will know what you are doing. Pretend you are focusing on everyone around you rather than on one person.

6. Record Using a Smartphone or SmartWatch

In 2018, the forecast sales of smartwatches worldwide are expected to reach 141 million units. Some wristwatches come with a camera, which sends pictures and videos to your mobile device.

Thus, buy one and learn how to use its camera without looking too obvious.

On the other hand, smartphones have voice recorders and cameras. As such, you can learn how to use these devices secretly.

For instance, you can place your phone in your pocket with the camera part jutting out.

You are the only one who’ll know the camera is active. You can do the same with the recorder.

7. Learn Spy Techniques

To succeed as a spy, you must learn their techniques. For example, you must know how to be inconspicuous. Mind the dress code so you don’t stand out.

Be aware of your surroundings and keep your ears alert to any noise. Tiptoe and take ideal positions to eavesdrop or spy on someone.

Peep carefully if you are at a corner. You don’t want to draw attention by sticking your head out all the way.

Ensure you look busy next to your target for better surveillance. Stay relaxed but not too casual.

Most importantly, have an excuse ready in case someone catches you.

Check that your shadow doesn’t show up where your target can see it. Keep a safe distance as you record but remain close enough to get everything.

Don’t walk looking down at your phone. Other people will think you are recording the person in front of you.

Try not to hang around someone either. Act like you have something to do or it will raise people’s suspicions.

8. Review the Laws

Even if you learn how to spy on someone, you should be conscious of the laws in your state.

Some states allow one person to record someone without that person’s knowledge. However, other states expect you to tell the person before you record them.

Thus, find out the laws in your area before you start spying. It may be illegal and land you in jail.
