Sure, see the answer of @Jasper:

But I think your wife will be able to tell you that in much more detail and she would also be able to give you an explanation why she is doing. So, just ask her, instead of 'spying' her activities. ;-))

Yes, maybe. You need to be able to

  1. Capture wireless packets, especially others than your own. This requires the right equipment and skill
  2. If the things she does are encrypted you need to decrypt the packets, which usually requires a court order to force the service/app provider to hand the encryption key over. Good luck with that (unless you're the NSA, of course).
  3. You need to be able to read packets and assemble content, and be able to make sense of it.
