auto forward reviewWelcome to my Auto Forward Review. Auto Forward is a “remote cell phone spy program” that can effectively spy on all models of Android mobile devices and all Apple iPhones and iPads. With their recent updates, the company has announced that Auto Forward Spy can now spy on an iPhone without jailbreaking it and it can also spy on ANY Android device without having the device in your possession.

I took the time to carefully inspect Auto Forward Spy from the time I first heard about it until my purchase. Each step along the way I analyzed every feature and advertisement carefully. What I found was that this company does a very good job in both representing the product and developing it. Throughout the advertisements, I saw that it was capable, or at least stated, that it could retrieve old and deleted text messages. I was extremely skeptical about this, as I have heard many other products make the same claim, so this truly did pique my interest and this is one of things I wanted to check out the most. I also read how it can retrieve old and deleted instant messages from social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. These bold claims had me curious about this product. So, let me tell you what I found…

Auto Forward Spy performed well in every area in which I tested. It really did retrieve old and deleted text messages from my Android phone and also from my iPhone as well. It retrieved as much old and deleted data from the Android as it did from the iPhone, which is something I have not seen with any other spy app I have tested. Surprisingly, it retrieved text messages I know I had sent and received well over a year ago!

Auto Forward No Access Required – No Jailbreak Needed 

For Apples iPhone and iPad, many software packages require that you jailbreak the device before the program can be installed to the device. Auto Forward Spy gets around this with their groundbreaking No Jailbreak Solution which is offered for $29.99. You do not need to have access to the phone or ever have the phone in your possession to use the no-jailbreak feature. To learn more about it, visit their site to spy on an iPhone without jailbreaking it.


The Process

Auto Forward Spy was extremely easy to download. On their website they claim that is as easy as 1-2-3 and I must say, it certainly is.

The process is simple – you download the application, enter your license key and the phone number you want to spy on. Within just a few minutes the program will access information from the target device and display the information on your cell phone, tablet or computer (whichever device you happen to be using). I would have to say that I had 98% of information that was on the target device in less than 5 minutes!

Their state-of-the-art user control panel makes it easy to view data collected from the device. They do a great job of organizing the captured data and making it easy to read.


The process is very simple and quick:

  1. Download Use the OTA (over-the-air) link to they provide to download the app to the phone you want to monitor.
  2. ActivationWhen prompted, enter your license key (provided by Auto Forward) and the telephone number of the phone you want to monitor.
  3. MonitorFrom your cell phone, tablet or computer you can now see all available info from the target phone.



How It Works

Auto Forward works by establishing a remote connection with the target device. Once a connection is established, you will be able to see texts, calls, GPS location, website history, social media (Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat, Instagram and more), photos, videos and just about every activity that occurs on the monitored device.

Auto Forward Spy has the unique ability to extract old and deleted text messages from a phone as well. In my test, which was done on a Samsung Galaxy S10, Auto Forward extracted text messages that were over a year old that I had migrated during my upgrade from a previous Samsung device. I was very impressed! Calls were recorded clear and crisp. The GPS was accurate. Everything worked very well.


Reporting Capability

Everything is organized neatly in your online user control panel, which is accessible not only from your computer, but can also be seen on your mobile device as well, (I used an iPhone to remotely access the data). It’s important to mention that all you need is a Wi-Fi connection or a regular single from your cell phone provider to access the information from the target phone. The information is laid out in a well-organized manner which makes sifting through the massive amounts of data you will receive exceptionally easy.


Customer Support

LIVE telephone support…Yay! It’s a HUGE advantage to dial the 800-number on their website and have a live person answer the phone who is capable of answering your questions and taking care of any issues that you may have. Luckily for me, and you, I didn’t have any issues, but it’s nice to know they’re there, just in case.

The price for this product is $29.99. It comes with free lifetime upgrades and there are no additional costs. I like the idea that you can buy it once and own it for life and that you don’t have to pay for any upgrades. The program is good for as long as you are using it on a compatible device. When there is an upgrade, you are notified by email.


Auto Forward Reviews Verdict

Auto Forward Spy is among the best programs I’ve tested. It is very easy to use and it has everything you will need to spy on a cell phone. It will get you all the information that is available on a cell phone and will, more than likely, exceed your expectations. If you are a parent or employer or just someone who needs to monitor another individual, you can rest assured and be confident that Auto Forward Spy will get the job done for you. I recommend this program.
