Do I need Internet Data Plan / Wi-Fi?

To use SPYERA, you must ensure the TARGET device is compatible before installing the software.
This means checking to see if the TARGET device has a SIM card inserted and access to the internet, using either wifi or mobile data.
Both are needed to ensure you can download, install and activate SPYERA successfully.

SPYERA requires a SIM card to activate the software

SPYERA requires an active SIM card or CDMA phone service, including Internet access, to install and activate the software.
Suppose the TARGET device has no SIM card inserted at installation and activation. You can insert your SIM card into the TARGET device to activate the software and complete the installation.

SPYERA requires an internet connection to activate the software and upload captured data

After activation, SPYERA monitors all activities and uses an Internet connection to report this data into your web account.
The Internet connection can be provided via mobile data or a local Wi-Fi.
This information is reported according to a select schedule, with either real-time or less frequent and configurable reporting.

You may also connect to the Internet using only mobile data, Wi-Fi or both.

For example, if the target user connects to Wi-Fi daily at home, school or work, it may be possible to avoid using the phone’s mobile data entirely.

Internet access is required to report your monitored data logs, although Spycall (listening live to the phone’s surroundings) and Intercept Call (listening live to actual phone calls) do not require Internet service.

SPYERA requires phone service for spy calls, call intercept and remote SMS commands

Spy call and Intercept Call features use only regular phone service. These can be used even when all logging and reporting features are turned off or without Internet service. Furthermore, remote SMS commands you send from the MONITOR phone will require the TARGET device to have phone service and send and receive SMS messages to send an acknowledgement SMS back to the MONITOR device.
