You can access someone else's cell phone screen via Messenger, the Facebook chat, and with the applications Teamviewer and TeamViewer QuickSupport. All of them are available for Android and iOS.

To access the screen and, in addition, control the entire system of the other mobile, opening applications and settings, the TeamViewer app offers this possibility. Check out the step by step using these digital platforms below.
