Can you clone a phone without touching it (for free)?

Privacy apps are extremely popular now – there are firewall apps, privacy apps and even apps to help you hide other apps.

However, one of the most popular types of apps released in the last few years has been spying apps that allow you to clone your phone onto another easily without much hassle. Here’s what to do if you want to clone a phone without even touching it yourself.

How can I clone someone’s phone without touching it for free?

The easiest way to clone an app on your phone is to download a spying tool that can allow you to track, control and clone completely remotely.

Our favorite app to use is mSpy, which is the most well known of all the Spy apps on the market – it’s perfect if you need to clone someone’s phone quickly. It’s available for both Android and iOS devices.

mSpy is a popular spying tool app that can be used to clone a phone without touching it. To use mSpy the device you are using primarily you would need to root if it is an Android phone or jailbreak if it is an iPhone.

Although there is a subscription fee for some services such as mSpy. You can also use an app like Spyzie which again can cost a small subscription price, so it is best to consider other options before taking this avenue. Other options you can check out are uMobix, Hoverwatch and Cocospy.

How to use mSpy

One of the key reasons why mSpy is the most popular spying tool on the market is that it’s intuitive enough that anyone can use it. Here’s how to do it for iOS.

  1. Log in to your spy app account.
  2. Enter the Apple ID and password of the phone you wish to clone.
  3. Check the phone was cloned successfully by checking the dashboard of your account.

How to clone an Android phone

You can also download and use mSpy on an Android device as well, which will be useful if you’re not an iPhone user.

  1. Install a spy app for your phone.
  2. Enter the licence key sent to you via email.
  3. Log in to your control panel on your own device to make sure your phone and the phone you wish to clone are connected.
  4. Check that the phone’s data has been cloned through the app.

How can you clone a phone remotely using Bluetooth?

The first way in which a phone can be cloned remotely is using Bluetooth. With the use of a third-party app, a phone or device can be targeted and have its vulnerabilities exploited.

If the device, you are looking to clone hasn’t been updated regularly then there is a good chance it is open to a security attack via Bluetooth.

There are many tools available that can exploit this vulnerability for free and take control of another device to clone a phone remotely.

Again, this information is for research only and it should not be used to hack others as it is considered illegal. To do this using Bluetooth the process is as follows:

  1. Download a Bluetooth hacking app on your device. For instance, Super Bluetooth Hack 1.08.
  2. Install the tool on your device.
  3. While the installation takes place you may be asked to enter a passcode, try 1234 or 0000.
  4. Turn Bluetooth ‘ON’ for your device and connect it to the phone you wish to clone.
  5. Both phones would have to be in close proximity for this to work.
  6. After you connect the two devise the tool you have installed on your phone will exploit the vulnerability and all the information related to it.
  7. You will now be able to access all the information on the cloned device such as messages, call logs and keystrokes.

Who would want to clone a phone and why?

Phone cloning is the process of copying the identity of a phone from one device to another, phones these days are full of our information and are our digital identities.

There is a difference between cloning a phone’s data which certain spy apps allow us to do to check text messages, calls and photos on another device, something that you may install on a child’s phone as a parent to keep them safe and phone cloning which is illegal.

This refers to the complete copying of the identity of one phone to use on another device. Therefore, it may surprise you to know that you can clone a phone without touching it at all.

In this article, which is for research purposes only, we will look at how a phone can be cloned without touching the device.

As mentioned, a certain type of phone cloning is illegal, and we strongly recommend against it. However, there are reasons why spy technology exists.

Parents that want to keep an eye on their children’s devices may install spy apps to keep their children safe as smartphones can present dangers to children.

In certain types of employment, it may be written in your contract that you are to have this type of software installed on your phone, should you take up employment with a company.

For example, in healthcare when you work in the community you often have this type of software available on your device.

This is so employers can check through data to ensure that an employee is not committing any type of abuse to patients such as taking photographs of people that are considered vulnerable.

It is not about spying on your personal life and the information will be deleted regularly, it is in case any person makes a complaint against you so they can check your phone to see if what has been said is true.

It can be something as simple as checking you were with the patient instead of taking personal phone calls, but it is there for the safety of vulnerable people and the staff that are lone workers.


In conclusion, cloning phones although seemingly immoral and in some cases, yes, illegal, can be justified in order to keep people, businesses and employees safe from harm.

It can also be helpful in keeping children safe online in an age where technology is integrated so solidly into our lives and the dangers of being able to access anyone anywhere in the world continue to pose a threat.
