How to turn your smartphone into a spy cam using Airdroid?

Tuesday, August 09, 2016
Well, first of all this is not a prank. It can be done. So, if you have an old smartphone that you barely use or if you just want to try out this trick then this will be a worth read for you. In this tutorial we will be using an application called Airdroid. So, atfirst you will need to install the app on the phone which you wish to turn into a spy cam.

App Links : 

Google Play :

*This app is currently not available on the iOS and windows platform. 

Connecting Device :

First open the app after installing it on your phone.

Now go to the link :

Now in the app click the scan button which will open the QR code scanner. Use that scanner to scan the QR code shown in the Airdroid website on your computer screen.

Spy Time :

In a flash you will log in and you can then see everything that's on your phone like music, videos, photos etc. You can also view the contacts and make calls or send messages straight from your computer.

From the menu, just click "Camera" and then the trick begins. You can now view everything on your computer screen that your phone's camera can see. Just walk around and test it out. But make sure you are connected to the internet while you do so. The best option would be to stay connected to any WiFi network for even better performance. When you are done spying you can simply turn it off by closing the window. You would notice one thing that the camera, when opened doesn't show up on your phone screen.

So, that's it for this short trick. There're several other features that you would find interesting but this one seemed the coolest to me. So, if you liked this article do not share it with your friends. Don't let them know your spy tricks. Have fun and for more articles like this subscribe to our blog.

Thanks! I like different spies. This one seems to me good. Guys, what do you think about this wonderful free cell phone tracker app ? I can tell it has it's own pluses and minuses, but I suppose it's one of the best apps.

After reading this information I won't feel safe indeed. You always have to be alert. Such state of person's mind may be perceived as good or bad. You can speculate on this topic in your essay which you can order on

People are just crazy. Go check and learn something useful instead of spying on people. Or grow up, finally.
