How to find your lost or stolen android cell phone

Lots of people wonder whether it is possible to see the exact location of a mobile phone just by knowing its number. This is, fortunately, not possible through our service on

You cannot hide, for no one

In a previous article I explained why we should be happy that it is so difficult to obtain someone’s exact location, just by typing in his or her cell phone number. Everyone would be able to see exactly where any given individual is located. Suppose you are on your holidays and burglars find your phone number on some website, as soon as you're far away enough from home they will strike.

People who are in hiding from aggressors, like women who are dealing with aggressive ex- boyfriends would have to get throw away their only link with the outside world, their phone, to ensure their safety.

People who want to escape the rat race of their every day existence, who just don’t want to be disturbed for a few weeks and recharge their batteries, wherever they are others will find them.

Only because they carry their cell phone with them. It would be like 1984 has arrived, not only Big Brother is watching you but anyone else who knows your number can join in. I don’t think that’s fair, do you?

Legitimate reasons to follow someone closely

Parents who want to know where their children are on a Saturday evening, supervisors of mentally handicapped children or elderly people with heart disease, colleagues of journalists in dangerous areas. These are just a few cases where it makes sense that knowing only the country is not enough; they need to know an exact location. In these cases, a precise location can be obtained, but only with permission of the person being monitored.

In other cases it will need to be installed. In this article I will discuss a well working app for the Android. In a previous article, an iPhone option has been discussed.
