Can I monitor a device without the user knowing?

Member

Has anyone mastered a way to effectively "monitor" a device on their account such as child, spouse, etc. I'm the account owner, no managers assigned; and I want to monitor or "see" as much as I can from the second device on my account. There's a very "real" need for this, I'm not a crazy mom or wife. Any help is appreciated. I don't really have access to the phone (android) except maybe once a month and it's locked. Is there any of the Verizon apps that I can somehow manipulate such as the messaging app that I read had problems, but have been resolved... Even just seeing the caller ID would help, but I worry that the change will notify the device holder.

No way to do it without the device being alerted in some way.

You could check the bill details and see who is being called and sent text and at what time, but it won't give you details to it; will only show phone numbers. If you're monitoring a child, I'd think you could get access to the phone, in which case there is a way to read them.
