I regularly get asked how to see someone’s Facebook messages mostly by parents worried about what their kids are up to online. Then of course they want to know is there a way to see someone’s Facebook inbox messages for free?
That’s when the problems start. I’m going to explain how you can actually see their messages using methods that really work. I’ll also explain why any sites offering to see FB message for free are scams and do not work! So keep reading ….
Facebook has been around for a long time and it is by far the social media app with the widest variety of age groups that use it. From teens, to parents, to grandparents.
Facebook is hugely popular – see how it rates in my article on the Best Messenger Apps.

If you are a parent trying to see what your children are up to online you need to consider what is happening on their Facebook accounts and in particular their FB messages.
We all want free things don’t we? Unfortunately when it comes to monitoring cell phones and online accounts like Facebook – free doesn’t work out well.
I kept seeing these websites and online FB hacking apps that claim to let you see other people’s Facebook inbox messages for free and without their password.
So I tried some of the apps that claim they can help me however I found out a pattern. These apps don’t actually help you see someone’s Facebook messages. They almost always follow a similar routine.
They ask you to just enter the details of the persons FB username and then you are forwarded to a page asking you to fill out a survey or click on some adds. After this they need your email …. to send you the Facebook details.
Guess what …. they don’t work. They are scams out to make money from the surveys and adds that you click on. You get nothing in return – you don’t get to see someone else’s Facebook inbox messages.
I have highlighted these online hacking scams before in great detail – see my Snapchat Hack article – it covers the same scam.
What you want is how to see someone’s Facebook messages right? So the good news is that you can do this using spy apps – the bad news is that they are not free.
So in the rest of this article I will save you the pain of what I suffered in all the fake apps and tell you how to read someone’s Facebook messages without them knowing – using real Facebook hacking apps.
Let’s have a look shall we?
The first app I will recommend that will allow you to read someone’s Facebook messages is mSpy. Now let’s not pretend that Facebook is the only social media app that someone is using to communicate.
Luckily for you, mSpy covers apps such as Instagram, Kik, Snapchat and many more.
mSpy doesn’t just do social media apps either, it will also show you text messages, their GPS location (tracking), call history and more. You can also use it to hack a phones pictures including those sent and received using Facebook messenger.
As far as Facebook goes, mSpy will not only allow you to see their Facebook messages, photos and videos but it will also allow you to see their friends and who they are looking for with the “keylogger” feature.
The keylogger feature allows you to see everything they have typed into the phone keypad. This can also help you to hack someone’s FB account without a password.
The keylogger allows you to see login and password details for all social media and web apps – not just Facebook. This can be a very powerful tool.
Another great feature for mSpy is the ability to view the mSpy reports from your own phone or computer so you can see the persons phone without being anywhere near it.
All you need to do is install the mSpy app on their phone, which only takes a few minutes, and then the app can be hidden on their phone so they won’t know it’s on their phone.
If you feel I haven’t covered enough on mSpy or you want to know about it in further detail I have a Full mSpy Review here. mSpy is a paid app but it is very affordable and easy to use. Their cheapest plan will cover FB message monitoring.
The next app that will help you see someone’s Facebook messages is FlexiSPY.
FlexiSPY will give you access to all the same features on Facebook as mSpy but FlexiSPY is more expensive because of a separate feature which has nothing to do with viewing Facebook messages. So for that reason it is second on my list.
That feature is the ability to record phone calls and even listen in to them live. That feature is rare amongst spy apps these days so it does add an extra cost on to the total price of the app which is understandable.
FlexiSPY can record actual voice calls made on the phone but also voice calls made using apps like Facebook Messenger, Skype and WhatsApp.
If you only want to view Facebook messages and other social media apps then I recommend mSpy. If you feel like you need to listen to voice calls as well then FlexiSPY is definitely the app for you as the feature works really well and it’s worth the extra money.
The same goes for FlexiSpy if you want to know more about this app then I have a FlexiSPY Review here.
The third and final app that will help you to read someone else’s Facebook messages is MobiStealth. Just because I put it last on my list doesn’t make it a bad app, in fact it is one of the best ones out there it just happens to lack a few things that the previous two have.
MobiStealth will give you access to someone’s Facebook messages but you won’t be able to view activity on apps like Twitter and Snapchat which are getting more popular amongst teens.
So if you’re wondering about what your child is doing then keep in mind that with MobiStealth you won’t be able to see some of the more commonly used apps.
Apart from having fewer fancy features, MobiStealth does provide another option when it comes to monitoring FB messages – and it is cheap! You can read my detailed Mobistealth Review here.
The spy app and hacking tool market is awash with fakes, scams and just poor quality software programs. I cover these apps and their uses extensively on this website – and always recommend legal and ethical uses only!
I only recommend a few of the best spy apps and I strongly advise you to do some research before buying an app that “looks good”.
So choosing an app really depends on 2 things. Who uses the phone you’re looking at (child or employee) and what you want to see.
If you want to listen to phone calls then be ready to cough up the extra bit of money for FlexiSPY. If you don’t need call recording and still want a wide range of advanced features – mSpy is the best choice.
When it comes to seeing someone’s Facebook messages all three of these apps will get the job done without the user knowing. All are very well hidden and can report all activity on Facebook.
These apps are inexpensive but they work. Stay well clear of so called “free” hacking tools and spy apps.
So there we have it, how to see someone’s Facebook inbox messages in about 1,300 words instead of going through 100 fake apps like I did!
I hope this article has helped you.
