No credit card information is needed to start the trial. Once you see how Investigator lets you monitor your child's iPhone, iPad and/or iPod with no Jailbreak necessary, you will know why you need this service for your family.
Enable iCloud on Device
In order for PhoneSheriff Investigator to work, your device must connect to iCloud. You can have several devices on one iCloud account. Go to Settings > iCloud and make sure that all activities that you want to monitor are turned on.
The limit for a free iCloud account is 5 gigabytes, so you may choose to not upload the photos if you expect the device's camera roll to exceed that amount.
Then go to Settings > iCloud > Storage and Backup and turn on "iCloud Backup."
Data needs to be uploaded from the device before Investigator can see it, which automatically happens when the device is plugged in, locked and connected to Wi-Fi. But you can speed up the process by connecting the device to a Wi-Fi network and selecting "Backup Now" in the Settings > iCloud > Storage and Backup section.
Visit the Trial Sign-up Page
Visit the trial sign-up page here and follow the steps. You will not be charged until after the 7-day period. You may cancel at any time. After signing up, you will receive a registration code via email.
