Snapchat Monitoring with Auto Forward 

Snapchat has become one of the most popular social media apps in the world. Used, not only by kids, but also by millennials making its contents, posts, and stories highly sought after by anyone monitoring a phone. Auto Forward automatically extracts and uploads all activity that takes place in the Snapchat app BEFORE it is deleted by either the user or the app. You will have access and be able to view:

  • Login History and Account Info
  • Snap History
  • Chat History
  • Story History
  • Shared Content History
  • User Profile
  • Friends
  • Account History
  • Location History
  • Search History

Viewing Snapchat history is done by logging into your Auto Forward account. Simply login, find the Snapchat menu item on the left sidebar and click on it. All uploaded data from the Snapchat app is there. You can download all messages, posts, and images to your own computer to save for future viewing.

Auto Forward Reporting 

Everything is organized neatly in your online user control panel, which is accessible not only from your computer, but can also be seen on your mobile device as well, (I used an iPhone to remotely access the data). It’s important to mention that all you need is a Wi-Fi connection or a regular signal from your cell phone provider to access the information from the target phone. The information is laid out in a well-organized manner which makes sifting through the massive amounts of data you will receive exceptionally easy.

Customer Support

LIVE telephone support… It’s a HUGE advantage to dial the 800-number on their website. They have a live person answer the phone who is capable of answering your questions and taking care of any issues that you may have. Luckily for me, and you, I didn’t have any issues, but it’s nice to know they’re there, just in case.


The price for this product is $29.99. It comes with free lifetime upgrades and there are no additional costs. I like the idea that you can buy it once and own it for life, and that you don’t have to pay for any upgrades. The program is good for as long as you are using it on a compatible device. When there is an upgrade, you are notified by email.


Auto Forward is among the best programs we’ve tested. It is very easy to use and it has everything you will need to monitor a cell phone. It will get you all the information that is available on a cell phone and will, more than likely, exceed your expectations. If you are a parent or employer who needs to monitor someone, you can rest assured and be confident that Auto Forward will get the job done for you.
