Frequently Asked Questions: 

  • What is Sideloadly used for?

iPhone and iPad users do not get access to third-party apps like Android users. Therefore to install 3rd-party apps that are unavailable on App Store, we need to use Sideloadly. 

  • Is Sideloadly safe or not?

According to different sources, using this app installer is risky. This app will not scan the IPA you install through it for any malicious code or malware. Using this app can compromise your device data to unwanted personnel you will never know. 

We recommend you use it for educational purposes only. That means the iOS device where you want to experiment with installing the 3rd-party apps should not contain your data like your photos, contacts, or any other files. 

  • How to enable Wi-Fi sideloading?

Ensure your iPhone and Computer are connected to the same network to enable sideloading over Wi-Fi. 

For Mac –  Go to Finder > Select your iDevice under ‘Locations’ > General > Enable “Show this iDevice when on Wi-Fi” option > Sync & Done.

For PC – Go to iTunes > Connected Device > Summary > Options > Enable the “Sync with this iDevice over Wi-Fi” option > Sync & Done.
