What Is SMS Peeper

SMS peeper is a service that you can use to monitor someone else’s text messages. It can track both incoming and outgoing text messages all without the other person’s knowledge. You can use SMS peeper without having to download the app on the target device. It was one of the earliest tracking solutions to be introduced in the market.

In this article, we are going to be looking at SMS Peeper, how it works as well as its shortcomings. We are also going to share with you a viable alternative to SMS Peeper that works so much better than SMS Peeper.

Does SMS Peeper Really Work?

This is where most users have been stuck, for lack of a better word. Most users report that when they click on “Download Code” instead of getting the code, they are expected to take surveys or download other programs. Some people even say that after downloading the programs, taking the surveys or purchasing something, the code they got didn’t work.
