Did you know that it’s possible to track a cell phone without the person being tracked knowing? It’s true! There are a number of ways to do this, and in this article, we will discuss some of them.
Track A Phone Through A Phone Number
One way to track a cell phone without the person knowing is to use a phone number.
If you have the person’s phone number, you can simply enter the number into a mobile phone locator app, and the app will do the rest. The way these apps work is by triangulating the position of the phone based on a nearby cell tower. This isn’t as accurate as GPS, but it’s still accurate enough, and the best part about it is that the person being tracked wouldn’t have any idea they were being located.
Track A Phone Through A Tracking App
Another way to track a cell phone without the person knowing is by using a tracking app that uses phone’s built-in GPS tracker. There are a number of these apps available, and they work by being installed on the phone you want to track. Once the app is installed, it will send location data to a server, which you can then access from your computer, tablet or phone.
The catch is – you’d have to have access to a phone you want to track and to avoid legal trouble, you’d have to own that phone. This method is best used for tracking family members or employees.
Tracking A Phone Through Public Wi-Fi Networks
Another way to track a cell phone without the person knowing is by taking advantage of public Wi-Fi networks. If you have the phone’s MAC address, which you will know if you have access to the public Wi-Fi, you can use it to track the location of the phone.
MAC addresses are unique to each device, and they are transmitted whenever the device connects to a Wi-Fi network. By using a Wi-Fi tracking app, you can keep track of the MAC address and, as a result, the location of the phone.
Tracking A Phone Through Spyware
One final way to track a cell phone without the person knowing is by using spyware. Spyware is software that can be installed on a phone without the user’s knowledge, and it can be used to track the user’s location, as well as intercept text messages and phone calls, steal data or even take complete control of the smartphone.
Spyware is typically used by people who want to track someone they know, such as a spouse or child. However, it can also be used for illegal purposes, such as stalking someone, which we would obviously strongly advise against.
As you can see, there are a number of ways to track a cell phone without the person being tracked knowing. Which method you use will depend on your needs and the situation.
If you need to track a phone in real-time, then GPS is your best bet. On the other hand, if you just need to track the general location of a phone, then using a phone number or tracking app will suffice.
