How to use an Android Phone to spy on someone’s Whatsapp Account


In what turns out to be a WhatsApp fun week at Techjaja, we bring you more WhatsApp tricks and hackery especially for Android users. Yesterday we showed you have to install two WhatsApp accounts on one phone, and today we going out all guns blazing with some cool spy tricks and tips. So have you been wondering what you partner is up to, why he/she sleeps at 2 or 3 AM chatting away like she/ he will never sleep at all? You will get to soon know all his/her nocturnal confessions. You will get to know what they are sharing or receiving and from who? Is it a nude selfie, awkward audio or that naughty WhatsApp group messaging with suspicious characters? Worry not today is the day you get to play detective. What you have to know is that there is one small security loop hole which allow to get your spy on your partner’s WhatsApp account with an Android smartphone.

What you need to know

Before you begin, here are some prerequisites and some things you need to know. Every WhatsApp account has an associated unique MAC address. Once you change that MAC address, WhatsApp will request you for re-verification. This is the same thing that happens every time you install WhatsApp on a different phone or after clearing your WhatsApp data. Basically this means you cannot change or access same WhatsApp account for two devices. We shall present two spy methods on how it’s done, one will be a layman and the next will me more geeky so lets get going.

1. For a layman with bucks

You will have to download Spying Software called Spymaster Pro, this a cool and Genuine WhatsApp Spy software whose only blocking point that you will face with getting it is that you may have to part with some $50 (UGX 128,000). But if you have the dimes no need to worry you will be sorted with Spymaster Pro.

As a bonus, you can also use it to spy on calls they have made or from which numbers they have received the calls, moreover you can also see numbers of dialed or received calls. You can also use it to spy on emails, location tracking, SMS and photos.

If you looking for free solution than try second one, its kind of geeky for the none tech freaks.

2. A More Hands On, and Free method

This is for the dedicated WhatApp Android users and this is how you will be able to get it working. First of all install Busybox app from the Google PlayStore as below :
For rooted phones, click below
busybox rooted
For Nor -rooted phone (Recommended) , click below
busybox non rooted
Next, install Terminal App form the Google Playstore click below.
Here comes the tricky part, you will need to get access to your victim’s phone for 5-10 minutes. You will also have to first uninstall the WhatsApp from your phone or alternatively  install multiple whatsapp apps in your phone. There after you can now find the MAC address of your partners phone which you want to spy:

Here how you can find the MAC address :

For Android Phones – Go to settings—> About phone—> Status—> Wi-Fi MAC address. For iPhones – Go to Settings—> General—> About—> Wi-Fi address. For Windows Phone – Go to Settings—> About—> More info—> MAC address. For BlackBerry – Head over to options—> Device—> Device and Status info—> WLAN MAC

 Back to your phone, open terminal app that you downloaded in your Android phone,and type

» : su (Enter)» : busybox iplink show eth0

That will help you get your own current MAC address after now type

:busybox ifconfig eth0 hw ether

(INSTEAD OF 00:11:22:33:44:55, Use your patners MAC address) now close it . Please don’t forget to return the phone you “borrowed” before you are spotted
Finally you can now reinstall WhatsApp on your phone and enter your partners mobile number, verify it and now you are good to go, this means every WhatsApp message they get will be mirrored to your spy phone. Hope your partner has not read this.
We shall also have more WhatsApp trickery next week.

      I suspect you will have mob phones to steal and acquire their MACs

        trick is to take them to the sauna or steam bath – then be a good samaritan to ‘keep’ the phones together in your locker
