The iCloud system functions have rapidly become one of the most helpful and essential features to come to iOS devices. With iCloud, you can save the potentially limited memory space you have on your device but can also store all kinds of media and information, such as contacts, videos, and images, giving you more space for the things you love.
However, for the typical everyday iOS user, things are not always as convenient and as easy as they first seem. Whether you’re sitting at home in your pajamas or out and about traveling the world, it’s important that you have the ability to access and manage the contacts on your device.
This may seem as easy as logging onto your iOS device and hitting contacts but what happens if your contacts are stored in the iCloud? What if you don’t have access to your device, but you still need to find the contacts that are stored there? What can you do about it?
Moreover, what if you need to get contacts off of another device that you may not originally have access too. Today, we’ll explore two key and easy-to-use methods that you can start using to today, making it extremely easy to access and manage your device’s contacts that are stored in your iCloud account.
1.Method One: Access and View Contacts on iCloud
2.Method Two: Access Contacts on iCloud Without User Knowing
1.Method One: Access and View Contacts on iCloud
Here, we’ll delve into the ins and outs of using the main iCloud framework to access and manage your contacts with ease, so you know how to access contacts on iCloud.
Step One - Logging into Your Account
Firstly, you’ll want to make your way over to the iCloud website, which can be found by clicking here. From here, you’ll immediately see a popup box where you’ll be able to enter your iCloud account information, which is your email and password that you used when creating the account.
To make things easier next time, saved your details, so you don’t have to log in again (if you’re not using a shared computer).
Step Two - Manage Your Contacts
Once you’re signed in, you can start managing your contacts. Within the iCloud program, you’ll see a collection of all the apps you have connected to your accounts, such as Reminders and Calendar. Tap the Contacts option, and you’ll have the ability to manage your contacts.
Here, you’ll be able to explore the options such as deleting duplicate entries or clicking ‘edit’ to adjust the information of each contact or add new pieces of data, such as addresses and email addresses.
Step Three - Add a New Account
Next, you’ll also find the ability to add new contacts that you want to add to your contacts list. You can do this by tapping on the ‘+’ sign. This will take you through to a new page where you’ll be able to add all the relevant and applicable contact information, such as name, phone number, addresses and more.
You’ll also have the ability to change your individual contact preferences as well as exporting your entire contact lists. Once you’ve set everything how you want it, simply click the ‘save’ option to store your changes which will then become applicable and accessible through all your linked devices.
Step Four - Creating Groups
Sometimes, you may want to sort your contacts into Groups so it’s easier to manage everybody in your iCloud device and you can find people easier. For example, you can have work groups, family groups, friend groups and other relevant groups in your life.
To add a new group, simply click the ‘+’ sign and click ‘add a new group’.
This will take you to a screen similar to the one posted below where you’ll be able to add your group name. Once saved, you’ll then be able to add the contacts you want to that group, keeping them organized and easily accessible.
In short, that’s how to access contacts on iCloud.
Alternatively, you may wish to access and monitor the contacts on an iOS device that doesn’t belong to you. This could be a potentially cheating spouse, a child or even an employee at work. Here’s how to access these contacts without even needing access to the device using a hacking spy solution known as Spyzie.
Step One - Register Spyzie Account
Firstly, make your way over to the Spyzie website and click the ‘Sign Up’ button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. This will take you to the sign-up page where you’ll be able to enter your email address and your password so you can access your account. This will be your login information.
Step Two - Linking iCloud Account
Once confirmed, you’ll be taken to the next page where you’ll be able to start inputting information on the device you’re going to access remotely. You’ll need to insert their name, so you can identify the account you’re tracking, their age (for age-sensitive notifications) and the operating system their device is using, in this case, iOS.
On the next page, you’ll need to input the iCloud account information that is linked to the account that you’re trying to spy on. For this, you’ll need the email address and the password, and that’s it. You won’t need to install anything onto the device itself.
Once you’ve inputted this information, you’ll be ready to start hacking and spying on the contacts of the device without anybody else knowing.
Please note, you’ll need to ensure iCloud syncing and backup services are enabled on the target device for the Spyzie service to work to access iCloud contacts.
Step Three - Using the Control Panel
Once you’ve set everything up above, you can simply sign into your Spyzie account on any smartphone browser or desktop computer using the details in Step One to access iCloud contacts. This will take you through to your personal control panel where you’ll be able to access all the information you could possibly need.
You can cycle through the features using the menu on the left-hand side of the screen, one of which is titled ‘contacts’. This is where you can access iCloud contacts on the device remotely without anybody realizing.
