I’m going to take a look at how you can hack WhatsApp messenger chats using some cell phone spy apps – an increasingly common question. I’ll explain a little about why this is important and then look at the best programs available for hacking Whatsapp. You’ll also find out which phones this will work on, as not all are covered.
You should use this article along with my main – How to Hack a Phone guide – it goes into a lot of detail on phone hacking methods and explains how once your phone has been hacked – almost everything on it can be hacked …. including your WhatsApp account.
Beware of sites online offering a free WhatsApp Hack or online hacking tools. There never work and only exist to get you to fill out an offer or click on some adverts. Trust me on this … they are fake. In my main Hacking Guides section of this website you’ll find more explanations and I go into legitimate hacking methods.

WhatsApp Messenger Explained
This is one of a growing number of services which allows users to download a simple App to their cell phones, Tablets and computers which allows them to send messages and have live chats using their internet connection.
It avoids using the phone’s text allowance and if done using Wi-Fi, can mean free unlimited text messaging. You can probably see why programs like this are so popular with kids today – free texts, what’s not to love!
Both parties just need to have WhatsApp installed on their devices and the app download is free. You can send messages from phone to phone or PC to phone etc. as long as both have the app installed.
It works across different platforms and devices. They can even have group chats – a bit like conferencing for texts.
For anyone trying to monitor their children or employees, WhatsApp and others like it created a problem. With all basic cell phone spy software programs you had the ability to completely spy on all text messages sent and received. If however they installed WhatsApp, you couldn’t access these messages. They are not picked up as regular SMS text messages.
As these apps became more popular people where realizing they were missing a major part of their kids communication. As the technology and how our kids use it changes, you need to keep up.
Now several of the most progressive spy programs can support monitoring of the most popular messenger services, including WhatsApp. Not all programs have been successful and it still only works under certain conditions.
What You Need to Hack WhatsApp Messenger
Obviously you need to choose a spy software program which supports WhatsApp but your phone or Tablet must also meet certain conditions.
- Only works on Android phones and Tablets or on the iPhone and iPads.
- Android phones and devices need to be Rooted (read this article for more information).
- iPhones and iPads must be Jailbroken. unless using one of the no jailbreak versions (no software to install but limited monitoring see mSpy below).
- As with all spy software the app must be installed directly onto the device – no remote install!
- At the moment it is not possible to monitor WhatsApp on BlackBerry or Symbian phones.
Now you know what the target phone needs, you need to look at the spy software which will allow you to hack into someones WhatsApp.
Choosing Spy Apps to Hack WhatsApp
Several programs now support hacking into WhatsApp messenger. It is unlikely that you are choosing the software just based on its monitoring of WhatsApp.
You should be looking at all of the available monitoring features and figure out which one covers your needs.
The links below will take you to my main reviews for a closer look at each program.
The following programs can effectively monitor WhatsApp messenger:
- mSpy – covers Viber, Skype, iMessage and Facebook Messenger – also supports the no jailbreak version.
- MobiStealth – also has a no Jailbreak version.
- Mobile Spy – No longer recommended – it can not be hidden from the user.
- FlexiSpy – monitors the largest selection of chat/social sites including: Viber, Skype, iMessage and BBerry Messenger.
- XNSpy – both No Jailbreak and full software versions available.
No doubt there are some others but these are ones I have tested and can recommend. Check out my best spy apps page to see how the different programs match up in terms of monitoring features, pricing and overall ratings.
Don’t forget that these programs are very powerful and provide a full range of monitoring features – check out the reviews before making a decision.
My recommendation for hacking WhatsApp is to use mSpy – check it out here.
