How does PhoneSheriff Investigator work?
PhoneSheriff Investigator Edition is different in that you don't have to Jailbreak the Apple device to use it. All you need to do is purchase the Windows software, install it onto your computer and login using your Apple ID and password.
Nothing needs to be installed onto your child's device. Just access the Apple device you own to enable the cloud storage and backup. Unlike other systems, your Apple ID and password are never sent back to us. That's handled on your own computer by the standalone program. Therefore your ID is never seen by any third party.
Check out the PhoneSheriff Investigator User Guide to get an idea how easy it is to setup.
Do I need to Jailbreak or unlock the iPhone to use Investigator?
No. You are not required to Jailbreak the device or install an app onto it in order to use Investigator.
Do I need to download anything to my child's device?
No. You do not need to download or install anything to your child's device. You will only need to make sure the automatic iCloud backup is turned on and associated with your Apple ID.
Does it cost extra to add another child's device to monitor?
No. You can purchase PhoneSheriff Investigator Edition once and monitor as many devices as you need to by using a single Windows computer program. The software can only be installed on one computer per license.
Phonesheriff Investigator can monitor multiple devices after a single login if the devices are using the same Apple ID. There is a the drop-down menu to select a device. You can also monitor multiple devices with different Apple IDs by logging into and viewing them one at a time.
