    Wink Re: Be onto Be on to

    be onto ( a phrasal verb) - Pursue, be aware of someone's true nature
    Example:
    He's being very careful because he thinks the police are ONTO him.

    be on to - To move ahead
    Example:
    We have completed the report and now we will be moving on to other things.

    I hope this helps,
