Of course there are difficult and complicated methods, but I’ll teach you the easiest, fast, simple and most economical way to place a cell phone on a map at any time of the day or the night.

How to Choose?

There are lots of reasons to want to track down the location of a mobile. In my opinion, there are 3 main most important and which with most people identify. Let’s look one by one to understand the differences and similarities of each scenario:

  1. Your Partner Trace: If you need to know where your twosome is for some reason like jealousy, doubts, or just too much love.
  2. Your Child’s Footprint: In these times where danger exists inside and outside your home, one cannot even just trust school friends or neighbors, and being able to locate your children at any time helps you stay calm and know that some way you are protecting them as you will know how to get there in any emergency situation.
  3. Your Employee’s Trail: A valuable tool for companies that save time and money on routine monitoring and help with data protection in a corporation.

There are many different mobile and cell trackers. Some of them are designed to meet specific needs. The type of app to pick up will depend on its use. Following up on a son or daughter, tracking down on an employee of a corporation, or going after in the footsteps of a deceiving bride or boyfriend are very different and delicate cases. E. g. your relationships can get complicated if they caught you because of a poor choice of the wrong trawling app.

However, spy apps are not only used by worried spouses and lovers. Even if you only want to know the location of your mobile because you have lost it or a “sticky fingers” have stolen it, here are top 5 lost phone apps to do so.

Free Apps vs. Paid Apps

Before starting, let’s pass a magnifying glass into those little words from the contract’s terms and agreements nobody read at the end of page: GPS, the hidden antennas in our devices.

With the most advanced (but also more expensive) programs you can create the route where the cell phone passes so you know exactly where it has traveled on a map. This is where you have to be careful. Many inexpensive programs may stop working if they do not have access to the GPS service of the spied device (when the GPS service or Location is inactive or off).
