A Sure-fire Method for Hacking Facebook Messenger Without Them Knowing

I have created this article so that I can teach you three basic ways to access someone’s Facebook Messenger without risking getting caught.

how to hack Facebook messenger without getting caught

Hello! It’s Frankie here again. Slow down before you just scroll down to the three methods of hacking Facebook Messenger.

Give it a minute – take a breath.

Feel calm?  Remember, in and out – and again, in and out. I think you have it now.

As I was saying, I have put together three of the most popular approaches used to hack into Facebook Messenger.

These are the same techniques that you can expect experienced hackers to use as well.

Apart from experienced hackers, these techniques are also frequented by wives and girlfriends prying (just let him propose in his own time) or by the husbands and boyfriends (gotta grow up sometime) battling the green-eyed monster known as jealousy.

Alt! – You may find useful to read my guide on how to catch Facebook-Cheaters. Check it out!

Of course, you might also just be a dutifully worried parent, and if this is the case, check out this page.

No matter what the reasoning behind spying on a Messenger conversation, it is likely that the three truths listed below apply to everyone:

  • You’re far from being a genius with technology and suck at hacking computers and services.
  • You would like to invade a Messenger conversation without the other party realizing it.
  • You want the ‘hacking’ portion to be as easy as Sunday morning, and if it can happen remotely – all the better.

It’s okay – I don’t need to read minds to know that I’m right. Aren’t I?

Would I love to get on my loudspeaker and shout that I have the magic solution that can grant you access to someone else’s Facebook Messenger in one easy click? Absolutely.

Sadly, it’s not THAT easy, but – and yes there’s always a but – IT IS POSSIBLE!

Good news – you don’t have to be Kevin Mitnick (one of the most badass and famous hackers of all time) but you do likely need a little patience. It is not just going to happen from snapping your fingers.

Let’s take a look at some of these methods.

Legal Advisor: note that the information I provide here is for informational and illustrative purposes exclusively. I will not be responsible for what happens with this information once you have it. In most areas, spying on social media and messaging apps is considered a criminal offense – as well as a clear violation of another’s privacy.

Frankie’s Take:

Hey, in a rush? So, if you wanna snoop on someone’s Facebook Messenger, the quickest and most popular way these days is to use this app called mSpy. It’s so simple that even a kid could use it. If you’re interested in a speedy solution, just head to their website.

5 Ways to Spy on Someone’s Facebook Messages without Password from Your Phone (or PC)

As I hinted in the introduction above, Facebook Messenger can be hacked.

Before we get too in depth, I can list them quickly so you have a short reference point for the entire article.

1. Keylogging (Can Require Patience)
2. Phishing (Takes Considerable Time)
3. Cookie (Requires expert tech skills)
4. Resetting Your Password (Less Safe)
5. Facebook Messenger spy apps (The Easiest Method)

Now you are thinking – hey, I’ve got some options. I actually can do this.

Yes, you can just scroll down to the bottom where I have clearly labeled what I believe to be the easiest method, but that method also is not free.

But wait – You just said that there were free methods to read someone else’s Facebook Messenger conversations!

OK then!

Begin by saying the person’s name out loud that you want to spy on.

Speak clearly. Then follow that name with this phrase: “abaleloo boola boolaboola booshi bashi wesi paka paka” and don’t blink for 20 seconds.

Well, something is wrong with that method – it didn’t work.

Worry not, I am the man of many solutions. I have another to try.

Simply copy and paste the Facebook link profile of the person you want to spy on here: ___________________

and then reload this page again. Now, just copy and paste the link to the Facebook profile for the target right here: ___________________

Reload the page and get results!

Haha hehe hoohoo, did it work?

I’m quite certain that did nothing for you as well. I am not having a laugh at your expense, but rather showing you that there are frauds promoting instant spy methods. With how easy they make it sound, you would think that Facebook’s security team were Tom & Jerry.

Alright, no need to keep beating around the bush about this.

Let’s take a look at methods that can work on nearly any device with any operating system.

On your mark, get set, GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Please note: other methods such as using browsing cookies or cracking user’s history or altering the victim’s email address and then changing the password do not work anymore!

Method #1: The Ninja Technique of Keylogging

Hack Facebook Messenger with Keylogger

The first Facebook Messenger hack you can learn about today is a time-honored approach known as keylogging (this is the best way to hack Facebook password!)

Ok, just be patient, I am going to tell you what the hell that is first.

Keyloggers are tools (which can either be software or hardware.) They provide the ability for a third party to intercept and memorize keys pressed on a device.

Let’s say, for whatever reason or another you want to type “Goddamn” on the keyboard. This same “Goddamn” is stored inside the keylogger for later viewing by the person collecting and reviewing it.

Sounds pretty great, right?

Keyloggers can record any information the victim enters with their keyboard – including passwords intended to access social media apps, their emails, the one side of chats from sites (Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc.), and even internet searches.

I’ve said before – there are two types of these keyloggers including hardware (connecting directly to a physical device) and software.

I don’t think hardware keyloggers are worth the hassle!

For starters, you must buy a physical device. You must then install this device and its software on a target’s PC or laptop. You can’t use these on smartphones either, because it would be very quickly discovered.

Fortunately for you, software keyloggers exist. These can be downloaded and installed instantly, providing the same level of information.

Best of all, they can work on all types of devices, even Android and iPhones. These software keyloggers are designed to be untraceable and undetectable, so a target we’ll never know you are able to see all of the things they are typing.

In my opinion, the best software keylogger on the market is mSpy.

This software is reliable and very user-friendly for even first-time technology users. One you complete the guided install of the mSpy program, the app will automatically begin recording all of the keystrokes on the target phone without you having to do anything else!

Keylogger software

Accessing the information is easy, you just have to login to your mSpy account and check out the dashboard. It will not be long for you to figure out important details like your target’s Facebook or WhatsApp login.

Later in this article I will discuss mSpy in more depth. I am sure you are going to like it!

If you still think that this is the method that you want to try, you should check out an entire article I’ve written about keylogging.


  • Ease of Use – 9/10 – You do not need computer skills, especially with software like mSpy. You get 100% assistance throughout installation and they even have video tutorials you can use to help.
  • Safety from Being Caught – 8/10 – The software is virtually undetectable, so your victim will not notice it is recording all of the inputs from the keyboard.
  • Speed – 10/10 – As soon as the target gets on to social media, you gain access to these credentials as well.
  • Remote Controlled: Yes
  • Compatibility: Used on any device (PCs, Macs) and any smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS).

Frankie’s Take:

This is an approach that you want to use only if you can physically access the device of the victim. It will begin to spy on the activity immediately, so if you need instantaneous results, this is what you need to do.

Method #2: Psycho Techniques Like Phishing

Hack Messenger with Phishing Attack

Let’s take an in depth look at the second technique you can use to spy on a Facebook Messenger account.

Ready for the big reveal? Hypothetical drumroll please…..budum tiss. Phishing!

Everyone by now has heard of phishing, but do you know how it actually works? You can use this technique to swipe someone’s Facebook login credentials.

As usual, there are specific requirements to making this venture successful, and then we can dive a little deeper into the matter.


  • Must own a computer
  • Must have the patience to implement the plan and basic IT skills
  • Have a basic knowledge of HTML and PHP programming

This is an old, yet effective, method of accessing someone else’s information. The drawback is that it is not as easy as other options.

If you do not have any idea what some of these requirements even mean, skip past this portion altogether and move to the next point.

Okie dokie – let’s talk about how to do this in the simplest terms possible.

How Does Phishing Even Work?

This is basically a smoke screen of sorts that has been used in different delivery systems by calculating thieves for centuries.

Have you ever seen the iconic movie Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo Di Caprio?

This is based on an actual series of events with a guy named Frank Abagnale.

He performed successful cons worth millions all before he turned 19. He was able to adopt personas as a Pan American World Airway pilot, a doctor in Georgia, and a prosecuting attorney in Louisiana.

In short, this is what phishing actually is. You are making other people believe you are someone else so that you can steal the information you want.

Let’s take a look at an example.

Let’s say that in this scenario, you are trying to steal the Facebook password of your partner to discover if they are cheating on you.

You would want to follow these steps to set up a successful phishing campaign:

  1. First, buy a web domain with a Facebook related name (i.e. FacebookLooks, FacebookAlert, etc.) and create an email address like staff@facebooklooks.com.
  2. The landing page of this site needs to look precisely like the login screen for Facebook.
  3. You can send an email message from your created email address to your victim with the understanding that they believe it will be from Facebook.
  4. You (pretending you are Facebook) invite them to log in (following the link to the domain you created) to their account to update personal information.
  5. They are directed to the landing page that you have created that appears like the Facebook login screen.

And…… BOOM. You got them.

The victim, unaware that they are not actually logging into anything will enter their credentials. It gets stored in your database and only you have access to it.

Now, you have the victim’s Facebook password.

Unlike a keylogger approach, you do not need software, but rather social engineering. (I don’t have the time to write all of that into this article too, so Google it if you want to know more)

You can see, it is really nothing but a clever ruse.

This method definitely has some limitations, however.

Phishing Drawbacks

Once you have their login credentials, you should be able to quickly login to their accounts.

Well, maybe.

Unfortunately, we live in the time of two-factor authentication and Facebook can send an email to the target if you attempt to login from an unrecognized device.

In short, your risks of getting caught with this specific approach is high.

Disappointed? Well, that’s not where the story ends.

Sure, it’s a big obstacle to overcome. In fact, the best approach to getting around this is to utilize these newfound login details from a trusted device already used to access that account. This bypasses two-step authentication.

If you are curious, I have already put together a full article about phishing, and you can read about it here.


  • Ease of Use – 3/10 – You need computer skills to successfully accomplish this.
  • Safety from Getting Caught – 4/10 – You might get caught up in the two-factor security measures if you try to enter Facebook of your victim from an unrecognized device
  • Speed – 3/10 – It takes substantial time to set up all of these steps.
  • Remote Control – No
  • Compatibility – Can get used on any device (PCs, Macs) and smartphones or tablets (Android or iOS)

Frankie’s Take:

This method is free, but it is also complex to set up the trap and risky. You have to know some HTML coding and PHP language, not to mention understand some basics of the internet. I personally would not recommend this approach unless it is your last resort.

Method #3: Nerdy Techniques Like Cookie

hack Facebook by Stealing Cookies


  • Tech skills beyond the normal average user
  • The target device must be on a LAN network
  • Requires a laptop or PC
  • Must use Wireshark app and Ettercap app
  • Requires the Firefox browser to be used
  • Enable a Cookie Logger Add on

If you consider yourself a bit of a hacker, it might be time to steal cookies to get the information you seek. You can learn a lot, including your partner’s Facebook Messenger account login details by sniping the cookies.

Wait, what the hell are cookies?

The best way to describe cookies are small files saved to your device when you open a website. These are identifying markers for the user.

And it is possible to steal these identifying markers?


Let’s say you take these stolen cookies and insert them into your own browser. Facebook will think that you are the target you are emulating.

… As if by magic, you can now sign in to a target’s Facebook Messenger account without even knowing their password.

How Do You Spy on Facebook Messenger by Stealing Cookies?

I should warn you before you begin, this process is not for those unfamiliar with technology.

In order to steal cookies and access someone’s Facebook Messenger profile, here’s what you need to do:

  1. ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is the first part used to essentially poison the target. Google the best method of introducing this
  2. Download and then open Wireshark – Use this combination of steps – app > capture > interface > eth0 > capture
  3. Wait for the next time that the target will log in to Facebook
  4. Identify the IP Address for Facebook in this setting – open  CMD > enter .Ping Facebook.com
  5. Re-enter this IP address in the filter bar and hit to apply
  6. Go to HTTP Get /home.php  and then copy all of the cookies here to a notepad you can easily access
  7. Through Firefox, you can click to open/edit cookies, where you will have the option to add this information
  8. Navigate to Facebook and you will be signed in to the target’s account like they would on their device.

Pretty simple stuff, right? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. Before you get into the Matrix like Neo, you might consider some of the cons for this approach.

The Negatives of Stealing Cookies

It is not difficult to understand what the drawbacks of this process are. The tactic is long and drawn out and is overly complicated on top of that. If you fancy yourself a hacker, it might be worth a try.

A regular Joe, however, with limited time and technological experience, should probably just stick with a program like mSpy to save them time and headaches.


  • Ease of Use – 1/10 – you need to really know what you are doing and be a competent hacker to pull this off.
  • Safety from Getting Caught – 2/10 – It is possible to get swept up in two factor authentication security measures if entering Facebook from an unrecognized device.
  • Speed – 2/10 – This is hardly fast, as there are several complicated steps involved. You also have the additional time of waiting for them to log in to Facebook to collect the necessary data.
  • Remote Control – Yes
  • Compatibility – This process requires the use of a PC or laptop to achieve.

Frankie’s Take:

Some of you might enjoy hacking, and in this case, this might be an enjoyable experience to attempt to pull off. For the rest of us, you can avoid wasting hours of your life and just install mSpy too long on your partners phone or device to read their conversations without all the hassle.

Method #4: The Geek Technique: Forgot Password

Spy on Facebook Messenger by Resetting a Password


  • You will need access to the target device
  • or you require access to their e-mail

If you want to know if spying on your partner’s Facebook Messenger it is as simple as resetting their password, the answer is yes.

In truth, Facebook is not as much of an impenetrable fortress as Zuckerberg pretends it is. With so many users, they don’t have time to worry about small security breaches that do not pose a risk to the entire network.

Using the trick of a forgotten password, you can disable your partner’s current password and create a new one.

With a new password, you can effortlessly sign in to Facebook Messenger and see who they’re talking to. You will be able to read all incoming and outgoing messages that have occurred.

How Do You Spy on Facebook Messenger by Resetting a Password?

It is possible to get into your partner’s Facebook Messenger profile in less than two minutes. Sounds like time well spent, right? Use the forgot password trick by following these steps:

  1. Open up Facebook Messenger on your phone and log out of your profile
  2. Click Forgot Password
  3. Enter your targets e-mail or phone number in the space provided
  4. Click send code via email or phone number
  5. Use their device to get the one-time code
  6. Enter this unique code on your device and choose ‘Keep Me Logged In”
  7. Create a New Password
  8. Use this new password to sign in to the account

And with that step, you are in to the account! As long as you are there to intercept the Facebook verification code you can use the forgot password trick to hack into any messenger account you wish.

But don’t celebrate just yet.

Before you begin using this trick wherever you wish, you might consider some of the cons of the process.

The Drawbacks of Resetting a Target’s Password

It sure would be nice if the resetting password trick was free of drawbacks and potential cons. However, this is not always the case.

I have two main issues that you could encounter when utilizing this method.

The biggest issue is receiving the Facebook verification code if you do not have access to the targets e-mail or have their phone available, you cannot get the information you need to reset the password.

Secondly, the target is notified when you change their password. As soon as you change this information, Facebook sends an automatic message to alert them of this account information change.

So, if you have gained access to Facebook Messenger by changing the password, you only have a finite amount of time before they find out they have been hacked.

In this case, you should quickly read as many messages as you can and hope that your partner does not suspect you as the person behind the hacking.


  • Ease of Use – 9/10 – There are no technological skills involved, Facebook has a clear official guide on how to reset a password.
  • Safety from Getting Caught – 2/10 – Remember that Facebook will send your target a message saying that their password has been changed.
  • Speed – 9/10 – it takes less than two minutes to change a password.
  • Remote Control – Yes
  • Compatibility – You can complete this action from any type of device, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, and more.

Frankie’s Take:

The method is free and very easy to implement. Unfortunately, this will only work if you have access to either your partners e-mail or physical access to the phone. The chance of getting caught is high because Facebook will alert the user that their password has been changed in case they did not make these adjustments themselves.

Method #5: Batman Level Software – Spy Apps for Facebook Messenger

It is most beneficial for users to consider tracking apps for Facebook Messenger as the safest possible method.

There are multiple apps that can fit this description, allowing the spying of Facebook, messenger, and other social media apps. Several of these are worth your money and time, while others are scams.

Below I have selected what I consider to be the best because they work, are simple to use, and are untraceable with the target device.

1. mSpy

Hack Messenger with mSpy Software


  • Access to the target smartphone (iPhone or Android) for a few seconds
  • mSpy (get 30% off with a discount code for being a reader of my blog)
  • 10 minutes to set everything up

mSpy is the best app for tracking and spying on Facebook Messenger.

Before making this statement, I have tested more than 30 spy apps over the past five years. I would test them on various parameters, including user friendliness, the ease of installation, and security.

I consider this to be my favored method of spying on phones should the need arise, but that is a consensus I share with the world.

You might not be as tech savvy as I am (which actually makes you in the majority), but I can sum it up to say that this is the easiest and best solution available to you on the market.

There might be thousands of apps or programs that you can choose from that all claim to be the best spyware, but really, they’re trying to compete and catch up with mSpy.

This is one of the most sophisticated programs that you are likely ever to find, and also has a high reliability. Once you learn how to operate the software, you will love it forever (longer than most marriages seem to last once this app reveals the truth.) maybe you can count yourself among the lucky ones that get a divorce.

Installation is all that you need to do to get this up and running.

This collects data for you and delivers it in a convenient package. Perhaps you might want to pop some popcorn if you are settling in for a long night of entertainment.

Spy on iPhone with mSpy App

Once mSpy it gets installed, you will be able to read Facebook messages and check Facebook activities, but you can also have access to a greater wealth of information, including:

  • Text messages
  • GPS locations
  • Email accounts
  • Call logs (incoming and outgoing)
  • Browser history
  • Saved pictures and media
  • All messaging apps
  • All social media services and accounts (WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat etc.)

Honestly, the list is pretty substantial.

User friendliness is one of the staples of the service at this software provides. Their interface is foolproof, giving you a fast access to the information you need.

Trust me.

You could also contact customer service 24/7 through email or chat to help you with installation or other technical issues that might arise.

I would only take a few minutes to install this on the target device, and if you have any issues, customer service is always there to help walk you through it step by step.

So, How to Hack Someone’s Facebook using mSpy?

It is remarkably easy to install mSpy on a victim’s smartphone.

Believe me.

It only takes a few minutes, and you don’t need to be a technological whiz to accomplish it.

Before we continue, I do have one important thing to tell you:

As for Android smartphones, you will not need to root the operating system. mSpy implemented ‘Screenrecorder’.

This is a feature that takes screenshots of Messenger chats. For iPhones, instead, you would need to jailbreak the iOS operating system.

Remember: rooting an Android phone or jailbreaking an iPhone are processes that crack the operating system from its normal functionality and limitations. This allows the installation of applications outside of the official Google or Apple stores.

Ready to begin? Just follow three simple steps:

  1. to begin, purchase mSpy (everything isn’t going to be free you miser!)
  2. connect mSpy to the victim’s mobile phone
  3. wait a few hours for the software to download all the information from the target
  4. enter the dashboard from a link you receive with login details after purchasing, and monitor everything happening on the target phone as often as you like.

And then you’re done. See? It was easier than you thought.

mSpy Hacking Facebook Messenger

The installation process changes depending on the operating system of the phone you are trying to target.

To make your life a little easier, I have put together more than one tutorial. One is focused on installing the software on Android phones, and the other for iPhones.

You will get a range of photos and videos to show you in detail how everything should look as you install the software to the target device.

I will keep these tutorials updated regularly, as they are a great source of pride for me. They have helped 10s of thousands of people over the past few years to install the software and keep their children safe from predators on the Internet. It has also helped suspicious spouses to identify if their partner is being unfaithful.


You can’t have all this good news without a little bit of balance, so let me tell you about the drawbacks.

The Drawbacks of mSpy

I may have said drawbacks, but there is really only one hang up with this service.

As with all espionage software, you first need to access the device that your victim uses without interference for a few seconds.

Believe me, I’m always on the lookout for software that allows remote installation, but until now I have not found it. In fact, I will tell you with some absolute confidence that it simply doesn’t exist.

Let me explain why.

This program, as well as other Facebook spy apps, are legal because they are sold as tracking and monitoring systems for children’s smartphones. Monitoring Facebook Messenger chats (or group chats), or mobile phones in general, is a crime if it is not for a minor and by that individual’s parents.

We assume then, that a parent can access a childs smartphone without issues. It should not be complicated to install the app.

If you are trying to monitor a spouse and their mobile phone without their knowledge, this is a prosecutable offense.

Facebook, much like Apple or Android, have worked hard to boost the security of their products by introducing barriers like two factor authentications. This alerts users to attempted access from unknown devices or software.

Even still, I’d like to help you out here.

If you are not creative (or just possibly too lazy) to figure out a good reason to grab your partner’s phone, I have some suggestions.

I recorded a video detailing infallible methods to get someone’s phone without alerting them to your intentions.

Note: these same techniques used to gain access to your partner’s mobile phone can be reproduced to give you access to your child smart phone if they are older and more guarded.

Best of luck.

One last thing: one of the questions that often gets asked as if the victim can never notice that they are being spied on with this software. To put it plainly, the answer is no. There is no trace of installation or the software’s presence on the phone, so you can sleep peacefully.


mSpy has a single subscription called Premium that can be purchased month-to-month, quarterly, or annually.

To get this package, you can expect to pay a $48.99 monthly charge. If you want to purchase every 3 months, the per month price drops to $27.99. Annual subscriptions have a per month value of $11.66.


  • Ease of Use – 9/10 – You do not need computer skills to do this. This software gives you detailed assistance to help walk you through the installation process if you need it.
  • Safety from Being Caught – 8/10 – You never have to worry about the software leaving a discernible presence on the device, as there are no logos, notifications, or icons to show it exists.
  • Speed – 10/10 – After you complete the install, you will have all the information you need delivered in real time.
  • Remote Control: Yes, you can monitor Messenger conversations and other applications, even if the target is halfway across the world.

Frankie’s Take:

I don’t believe that you can find any software more effective and efficient than mSpy. Because you don’t need technical skills, is a nice fit for almost anyone looking to monitor activity on another device. Even though it is not free, the affordable monthly charge is worth the information you receive.

2. uMobix

uMObix facebook tracker



  • You will require physical access to a target smartphone regardless of its operating system
  • You will need to create a uMobix account.
  • 5 minutes to complete installation

If you consider mSpy to be the champion of this bout, uMobix is the number one contender in a close second. This is another piece of reliable software to spy on Facebook Messenger.

This app is all about convenience.

Does not matter if you have difficulty navigating the own interface of your smart phone, you will have no difficulties finding what you need through this comprehensive spy app.

uMobix Is very easy to use, but it does not lack in features. This application instantly grants you access to read Facebook Messenger conversations, including secret discussions and deleted messages. If your partner is cheating, you will be able to find out with uMobix!

Once you complete the guided installation of the software, you will automatically begin collecting data. I always recommend that users create a strong drink before setting up this account, because you are likely to uncover some nasty secrets from the target device.

uMobix, like mSpy, is completely capable of spying on virtually everything happening on a device. This means you have access to information such as:

  • Texts
  • Emails
  • All social media accounts (WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.)
  • GPS locations
  • Browser history
  • Call logs
  • Saved pictures and media

In under 5 minutes, you will have access to all of the conversations and media your partner has saved to their phone. With a wide range of features, user-friendly interface, and reliability, uMobix has rapidly become one of the most heavily downloaded and used spy apps on the planet.

So, How Do You Hack Facebook with uMobix?

Do not consider yourself to be a tech savvy person? Worry not.

The installation process is super user friendly, so much so that even your grandparents can do it.

Ready to begin? here are some steps to follow:

  1. First and foremost, you need to buy uMobix (no spy app worth it is free)
  2. Install uMobix – On iPhone – Go to your uMobix account, Enter their Apple ID and use their device to move past the two factor authentication – On Android – Go to your uMobix account, get the download link, use the target phone to open the link and follow the installation steps from there
  3. Patiently wait a couple of hours for uMobix to collect old data
  4. Sign in to your uMobix account, and from your dashboard, navigate among all the information you want

Pretty easy stuff, right?

screenshot umobix Facebook conversations

Remember, there is no getting around the physical access you need with an Android device to complete the installation. Installing this software on an iPhone requires you to know the Apple ID and contend with two factor authentication if necessary.

But wait a minute!

No app is entirely perfect. Before you spend the money on the application, you might consider some of the potential negatives in this paragraph below.

The Negatives of uMobix

Perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of using uMobix is the need of physical access of the target’s device. Even when installing remotely to an iPhone, you will still need a small span of time with access to their device to pass the two-factor authentication process. I might have used the term drawbacks, but this might be the only real negative to using this app over other options.

Ideally, it shouldn’t be too hard to grab your partners phone for a few minutes to complete the installation process. Wait until they are in the shower, or sleep, and get moving on it.

Perhaps one of the other issues with this software is that it does not have chat support, but you can reach them via e-mail. The app is reliable, so reaching out to customer support should be a rare occurrence if it ever happens.

Before you try uMobix: Much like mSpy, uMobix is hidden and undetectable. It’s designed to secretly record the actions of a target phone without them knowing. It is very unlikely you will get caught in this process.


If you are hoping to gain access to someone Facebook Messenger conversations and other social media applications, you need to purchase the full plan. Here are the pricing structures:


1 month – $59.99

3 months – $99.99 ($33.33 monthly)

12 months – $179.88 ($14.99 monthly.)


1 month – $49.99

3 months – $79.99 ( $26.66 monthly)

12 months – $149.99 ($12.49 monthly)

Should You Choose mSpy or uMobix?

mSpy and uMobix are both very good at what they do to spy on devices.

They have very similar features, both allowing you to read Facebook message or conversations and access other social media profiles.

In my opinion, mSpy is the slightly better option because it has a sleeker dashboard which is easier for many users to navigate. This app also has 24/7 customer support via live chat and is somewhat cheaper than uMobix.

Here you can compare the two products.

Best mSpy and uMobix Alternatives for Hacking Facebook Messenger

You might easily determine from reading this guide that I’ve been very upfront and clear about what you need to hack Messenger conversations and which software is the best to do this.

When you search for terms like hacking Facebook Messenger, you will get a multitude of potential options for programs that can claim to do this. If you do not like mSpy, there are popular spy apps like FlexiSPY (here’s the official FlexiSPY review), Cocospy, Spyic, eyeZy and more.

These applications are good in their own right, and they do work, but there’s a reason that mSpy is so widely used across the world. The interface is easy to use, and the value is worth the money.

Despite my insistence that everyone should be using mSpy, it does not hurt to briefly discuss other options like Flexispy or Cocospy.

FlexiSPY: in terms of spy apps, this is probably the second most popular option across the world. In recent years, this is the only real competition that mSpy encountered.

This app has a long list of features and also offers 24/7 Technical Support. The price is likely the biggest hang up for many users. What is known as the ‘Extreme’ plan allows you to view social media accounts in conversations like Facebook Messenger.

Cocospy: the people that use this product seem to be satisfied, and it works without the need to root the Android device you intend to spy on. You do need to still have the target device in your hands for a few minutes to complete the installation.

The base cost of this service is $50 a month, making it about the same cost as using mSpy.

In summary, if you are unfamiliar with spyware or afraid of getting caught, I still believe that mSpy is the best possible option. Beyond cost efficiency, the software is more user friendly and allows remote installation to iPhones. With the mAssistance service, you can get the software installed on your behalf for even less of a hassle. This is the best choice if you ask me.

FAQs Spying on Someones Messenger

🔵 Can you spy on Facebook if you only have a user’s phone number?

No, this is not possible.

To get into a Facebook account or read any conversations from Messenger you will not be able to access them with only a phone number. You should not trust companies that say they can get you this information with only a phone number. This cannot be done.

🔵 Are there free apps that will allow you to spy on a Messenger account?

There are no free apps that can spy on Messenger.

No one with the time or money to do this would offer it for free. If you want to know more about spying apps I suggest you read this guide: the best mobile spying apps that you can find in 2022.

🔵 Is it legal to spy on Facebook accounts and Messenger?

This is a more complicated answer.

There are some programs including mSpy or Flexispy that are legal to use when using them as parental controls. If you use them to look at a cell phone of another person besides your child without consent you are going against the law.

🔵 Can I trace back, thanks to mSpy, the name of a person having just a photo? 

Let’s suppose you suspect your partner because you caught him in some “hot” pictures with someone. This person is not tagged, so it is impossible for you to find his name.

Thanks to mSpy you can find out if your partner is chatting with this person and what they say.

I also recommend you to read my guide on how to find out a person’s name by having only a picture.

🔵 Can I hack into someone’s Facebook Messenger account without the target phone?

As did other social media platforms, Facebook introduced two-factor authentication.

If the person you want to spy on hasn’t enabled this option, you might steal their password by using a phishing technique and access their account from your device.

Conversely, if they have enabled this option, you would need the targeted person’s phone whether you have stolen the password or you want to install some spyware.

🔵 If I steal the targeted person’s Messenger password by using phishing techniques, can I reset it?

You can reset the password only if the victim hasn’t enabled the two-factor authentication. If they have turned it on, you won’t be able to do so.

The Take Away

Congratulations to all!

Now, I would say that we managed to have a lot of fun with this article. Now you can appreciate that hacking a Facebook account is not complicated and (un)fortunately, within anyone’s reach to do to someone else.

Here is a small recap of information to help you remember key points of this article:

  1. mSpy is the best way to secretly spy on Facebook Messenger
  2. You can utilize methods such as resetting passwords, stealing cookies, installing a hardware keylogger, or phishing, but these methods are plagued with various problems such as being time consuming, having a high risk of getting caught, or being overly complex.

I would say that if you want a quick and effective solution that does more than just spy on Facebook (but rather the entire phone – victim could use messaging apps that you do not know), then the clear choice is mSpy.

Not only is this easy and effective, but is untraceable by the victim.

Now you can see what is happening on your wife’s phone or on your husband’s phone, the devices that your children have, or find cheating spouse location live or whoever the intended target might be. You never have to worry about apps that you didn’t know they had.

Hopefully this article gave you some helpful information about this famous, though admittedly controversial, matter.
