If you have any questions or comments about this topic, please leave your inquiry below.
By the time you finished reading this article, you will have a pretty good idea on how to track a cell phone location, how to track someone on google maps without them knowing and what would be your next step.
How to Track Someone on Google Maps Without Them Knowing
Basically, is using the GPS service, but there are a couple of tricks here to know about.
First, a cell phone only receives GPS information, it does not broadcast this information.
This means that while you are able to use GPS location while using the phone, there is no native way, that is without installing a third-party app, to send the GPS coordinates to another cell phone.
Second, there is nothing secret about using someone’s cell phone GPS service.
You probably had notice this when installing an app or game that makes use of the GPS service information. Remember the app asking for permission to access this GPS tracking information?
Not good right?
So, how to track someone’s location without anyone knowing?
The simplest and most effective solution is using a third-party professional cell phone tracker application.
These apps allow you to track the location of someone’s cellphone using google maps and without anyone knowing, allow you to review other information like text messages, emails, calls, spy WhatsApp chats, photos and videos and without any risk of being discovered.
How to Track a Cell Phone with a Spy App
Using a spy application is the best solution and to tell you the truth, the only one I recommend.
Once installed, the monitoring app will capture the GPS coordinates of the cellphone and you will be able to see, in a Google Maps, where is the phone current location.
One of the main benefits is that these type of professional tracking apps will work secretly, without no one knowing.
Another great plus, is that the location tracking apps that I recommend not only capture the current location of the smartphone, but also text messages, WhatsApp chats, emails, calls, photos and videos.
Even a keylogger is included, which will capture every single key pressed on the cellphone.
Finally, is good to be able to count on the guarantee these tracking apps offered, if something just doesn’t work for any reason, you could ask for all your money back.
How to Find Someone’s Location on Googler Maps?
If you want to find someone’s locations, using Google Maps is the easy answer.
To be able to locate a cell phone in Google Maps, you need of course, the GPS coordinates of the cell phone.
I don’t recommend any of the free methods, is just too easy to get discovered.
Yes, it is free, but is not like the professional options are super expensive either.
And for that little price, is better to try to locate a person worry-free.
In any case, if the cellphone’s user finds that he or she is being monitored, then you will be in bigger troubles.
And it won’t be as easy to access the cellphone a second time.
First you download and install the location tracking app, once that step is completed, the software will start capturing the GPS coordinates automatically and storing all this information in your account.
At any time, day or night, you will be able to open a browser and locate the smart phone on a Google Map using the same captured coordinates.
Again, the keyword here is worry-free.
Using a professional monitoring and location tracking spy app, you will be able to capture all the information form the smart phone without anyone knowing.
Geofencing is a great feature if you want to locate someone at all times.
With geofencing technology, you can draw safe zones and restricted areas on a map, and if the cellphone being tracked enters or leaves these virtual zones, you will get an alert right away.
One common situation is when you need to keep working or go to school and are not able to watch the constant location feeds on your personal computer or smart phone.
That is why geofencing was created and added to the set of features of the best cellphone tracking apps.
Now you can go ahead, do your things and set everything up in a way that you will get an alert every time the cellphone enters or leaves, for example your home or a place or work, you will get an alert send to your smart phone.
Is really that easy.
Could you Find Someone’s Location Just with their Phone Number?
No, is not possible to find or spy on a cell phone with just the phone number.
You will need the cellphone’s GPS coordinates, and those coordinates are only used within the cellphone itself.
Without installing a location tracking app like the one mentioned on this article, there is no way for the coordinates to leave the phone and be used by someone else.
Just knowing the phone number will not help you install any app remotely on the smart phone you want to track.
How to Stop Tracking Someone’s Location When Using a Spy App?
A lot is written about how to start tracking someone’s location without them knowing.
But what happens when you find what you needed to find and need to uninstall the tracking spy app?
Is that part dangerous and that is why is not talked about?
That is not the case.
If you choose a professional tracking app, then the uninstall process is remote.
You could uninstall the monitoring software remotely from your own pc, tablet or smartphone.
So basically, you will be able to install and uninstall the tracking app without anyone knowing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions I received on my email related to this subject. If you have a question that does not appear here, please send me your question using my contact form so it can be added in this section and help everyone.
1. Where can I find a Google Maps Cellphone tracker?
Google offers a very well-rounded app to locate all Android devices.
You can download the app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.adm
This application is not a professional tracking spy app, mostly because is not meant to be run secretly. After installation, an icon will appear on the screen of the user’s cellphone and alerts could be send directly to the smartphone.
Perfect if you want an additional layer of protection to find your own cellphone, but not to spy on someone’s cellphone.
2. Could I track someone location with phone number on google maps?
I talked about this earlier on this document, but the truth is that you need an application that could send the coordinates from the cellphone to another app or storage.
Most of all apps we installed in our cellphones are consuming the coordinates to give us directions to a place, tag our photos, etc.
But only a monitoring app could capture these coordinates and send them to storage for you to find the location of the cellphone at any time.
3. Could I use Google Maps Tracking to spy on someone?
Short answer, no.
You can do google maps tracking using a feature called Location Sharing.
But with one condition, the person you want to track have to opt in into sharing his or her location, so is not possible to do it without them knowing.
Basically, you open Google Maps on your Android or iPhone, click on “Location Sharing”, and you will see a list of all the participating devices on the map.
You can do use Google Maps Location Sharing on your smart phone or from a browser.
4. Do you know how to track someone’s phone for free?
For free, no.
I would not recommend any free spy apps anyways, but to tell you the truth, I don’t even remember seeing one.
The main issue is that all the apps being tracked (WhatsApp, Facebook, Tinder, Instagram, etc.) and operating systems (Android and iOS) are continuously being upgraded.
One of the reasons that a professional tracking application is not free is because they keep developers on their payroll fixing bugs and updating the spy app.
Free apps do not update that often, if ever.
Free apps tend to break and stop working, sometimes sending failure alerts to the user’s cellphone.
And the professional spy apps are really cheap, just visit some of the links in this article and check the prices, I bet you will be surprised.
