Without access to their phone the answer is no. There's a lot of legal ramifications so check your local laws about using 3rd party software to track messages. Some states it's illegal even if it is your own kids.

Yes, I take their phone and look at them if they do something that warrants it. If some have been deleted their phone is confiscated.

Do you mean all messages "forwarded" to her phone. Having Verizon Message+ on a phone will only have messages sent to HER number, not from someone else's number.

Of course the messages would only be viewable on the MyVerizon account of the line in question. She would have to have the password for her child's MyVerizon account.

Of course, if the child has an iPhone using iMessage, those would not be included in messages available online at MyVerizon.Smiley Happy
