track a phone

Tracking a cell phone isn’t as difficult as it seems. Sometimes you need to track a phone to keep track of your loved one. Sometimes you fear the worst. There are different ways to track if you have an android, iPhone or a non-smartphone. We have five ways you can track a cell phone.

Why Track a Phone?

Sometimes we worry where our loved ones are. Many times places like Google Maps will not have the info wee need. Sometimes we need to find them because we fear they’re in a place they don’t need to be. If you want to keep tabs on your spouse, you might have to track their location. Of course, it’s important to have a tracker in case you lose your phone or it’s stolen as well. Sometimes you just want to know why you’re receiving calls from a strange number. Maybe you want to track this number to see where it’s from. It could be nothing, or you could find something you don’t want to.

The Legal Thoughts

In the big picture, it’s illegal to track someone’s phone without them knowing. Usually it’s left up to the law enforcement officials. If you’re being a spy because you’re worried your significant other is up to no good, it might just be worth it to track them. If you’re using a tracking app that identifies the location of the number, you’re legal. If it shows you where this number is registered, you’re fine, because it’s in a legal database. Area code locations are also legal.

How to Locate a Cell Phone Location

The fastest and easiest way to find a cell phone location is to install a location-sharing app. We’ll explain how to do this if you don’t have a smartphone as well. If the phone is using a fake GPS location, these trackers won’t work properly. Usually you have to be pretty good with technology and phones to even use a fake GPS location though. Don’t worry about that just yet. All you have to do is install one of these trackers mentioned below. These connect to the user’s phone monitoring it. Remember, they can usually monitor you as well.

1. Use The Carrier

Most major companies offer a paid feature that lets you track all of the cell phones on your account. This means if you share your account with your significant other, it’s easy to add them on the tracking. This is legal. It’s a way you know where all of your loved ones are when they’re away from you. Most providers use cell phone towers to find the geographical position of a cell phone. You don’t always have to have a GPS on, so it also works on phones that are not smartphones.

2. Accutracking – Non-smartphone

It is a bit harder to track a person that does not use a smartphone. If a phone has GPS, you can use an Accutracking app, or something like it. Most phones do have GPS unless they’re archaic. If you don’t want the person to know you’re installing git, you need to hid the app icon in a folder. Accutracking works on most phones. You log in to the Web interface from any source that enables the internet. If the phone is not dead, you will see the location immediately. This is a pay-as-you-go app. There are not many apps that work with non-smartphones. You can do a search to find the one that works best for you.

3. Tracking – Smartphone

Tracking a smartphone is usually pretty easy. There are many different apps you can use. Usually people have a Google or Apple account. Iphone users have a Find My Iphone account. This is easy as you can find the phone’s location immediately. Find My Friends is where you can add friends and loved ones. They usually have to accept the invitation. If they don’t want to be found, you can actually grab their phone and install a tracking app without them knowing. This isn’t exactly legal, but you probably won’t go to jail for it either! All you have to do if you install an app on their phone that you don’t want them to know about is remove the icon from the home screen. Hide it in a folder.

4. Reverse Phone Lookup Service

If you want to pull out the big guns, you can use a reverse phone lookup service. Maybe you wonder who has been calling your loved one’s phone. Why won’t they tell you who it is? Is it just a robot call or is it something more? You don’t need to wonder any more with a reverse phone lookup service. With services like Truth Scouts, you’re able to easily figure out the phone number. Websites like TruePeopleSearch or Whitepages shows who owns the phone number and where they live. Now, this is usually done with landlines, but sometimes cell phones are in the service.

5. Long-Term Tracking Apps

Some long-term tracking apps are used so you know where your loved ones are over time. Many times these apps even provide how fast their car is going, where all they have been and where the phone is at that very time. If you just want to track a phone for a few hours, you can use messaging apps like WhatsApp or Messenger. For long term, Life360 and Google Maps are popular. Remember if you want to track a phone right then and there, and you don’t have one of these apps, you can use a built-in mechanism like Android’s Find My Device or iPhone’s Find My iPhone.

You might not want it to come to this spying. Sometimes you have to do it in order to know what’s really going on. Sometimes it’s innocent. Sometimes it isn’t. It’s important you know the truth. Tracking a cell phone can be used for safety as well. You don’t have to always be worrying the worst is going on. A tracker will help ease your mind. If you need more help installing the app, always refer to the internet for a step-by-step guide.
