How To Track A Cell Phone
Learning how to track a cell phone can let you keep track of family members and your kids. You should never track someone's cell phone unless they know you are doing so. It can work well as a tool to keep track of your children though. Sprint, AT&T and Verizon offer cell phone tracking services for a fee. If you have a different provider, you can check to see if the service is offered as well. Follow these steps to track a cell phone.
What you will need:
- Supported cell phone
- Call your cell phone provider to speak to a representative about purchasing a family locator or family map service. The service should have a name similar to this. The phones will need to be capable of web browsing or data transfers. You can ask about compatible phones, too.
- Download the program to your phone when you are required to do so. You will need to download the program on the phone you will track and on the phone you will use for tracking if that's how you choose to track the other phone. Use either the application on your phone or the family locator website to track the phones.
- Tell the person who carries the cell phone that you will be tracking it. They should always be aware of this. These services are designed to be used in families for safety.
- You can use personal GPS locators from companies such as Zoombak for tracking cars or other things without a cell phone. These also work with a monthly service fee and allow tracking on a website.
