You can perform MAC address spoofing with which you will be available to spy on your friend’s whatsapp. WhatsApp has a small vulnerability which works to your benefit. This enables you to run the same WhatsApp account on two phones given that they both have the same MAC address. But for this you will need to borrow your friends smartphone and perform the below mention steps:

  1. Borrow your friends’s android phone for just a minute.
  2. Head over to settings > About phone > Status > Wi-Fi MAC address
  3. Now record the mac address. Keep the phone for few more minutes.
  4. Now go to your phone and uninstall WhatsApp.
  5. Change your Mac id to your friend’s one by spoofing mac.
  6. Now install WhatsApp on your phone and verify it using the verification code sent to your friend’s phone.
  7. By doing this you have created an exact replica of your friend’s WhatsApp.
  8. There you go!

After successfully performing the above-mentioned steps now you can track whatever your friend does in his WhatsApp account. This method is useful for parents and lovers and is not recommended to use for an illegal purpose.

Note: For this method, you might require rooted phones.

2. Using WhatsApp Web

This is a simple yet efficient way to spy on someone’s what app activities. For this method, you should have a PC or Laptop and access to your target’s phone for a minute. Here we will be using WhatsApp’s recently launched Whatsapp web feature. Follow me:

3. Using WhatsApp Backup Messages

You can use your target’s backed up WhatsApp messages to read them. Whatsapp automatically backups your messages every morning at 4 am. You just need to find these backup files and de-crypt them.

  • First, Borrow your friend’s phone
  • Go to Device Storage > Whatsapp >  Databases. Here you will see some files which are backed up messages.
  • Now visit recovermessages.com site to decrypt messages.
  • Select your crypt file and check on I accept the terms of use and then click on scan
  • This will de-crypt the messages and now you can easily read them.

Note : This site only decrypts old WhatsApp database files which have crypt extension (.crypt and .crypt8). Whatsapp is using a new technology in latest WhatsApp. I will update this post with a solution to decrypt messages in new WhatsApp, so stay tuned.

Also, note that Whatsapp automatically backups message at 4 am. So messages deleted before 4 am does get backup-ed automatically.

  • I am so surprised that ikeymonitor is not in the list above. Just make a search in google, you will see that it is ranked NO.1 . I have tested it, and it really works very well.
