Mobile Phone Locator - Keeping Your Mobile Phone Secure


With the emergence of a number of websites and a varied range of softwares it has become very easy to be able to track mobile phones. What was once seen only in spy novels and was considered a shady thing is practices today for the sake of fun amongst friends. 

Today, almost one in seven people in the world has a Smartphone, and most of those smart phones have internet connectivity. Hence it has become very easy to track the mobile phones. Now there would be many reasons why people would want to track anybody’s phone. Some husbands might want to do it to verify their wife’s location or vice versa, while some friends just want to keep track of their buddies for fun. Be it any reason, there are a number of mobile applications, software and websites which can aid you in your endeavor. In addition to the already available large number of such applications, many more of them are cropping up daily.

It has been generally observed that most of these applications or software don’t prove to be much useful and give only a limited amount of data about the mobile phone that is being tracked. Also, the data provided by these is very superficial and isn’t much useful. On the other hand, there are some apps which provide a really useful format of the data and also add a social element to it. This addition of the social element makes it fun to use such apps and the user interaction also increases.

One such application is provided by Google. It is called as Google latitude. It is a simple to use app with a very clean UI (User Interface). The most interesting feature of this app is that you don’t need a GPS enabled device to be able to use this. Just a Smartphone with Google Latitude installed in it is enough. Using this app, you can track your friends to a specific radius depending on the nearness of the mobile towers around that location. You have to add friends to be able to track them and the other side has to confirm the request. Thus, this addition of social element increases the engrossment of the user which has made this app quite successful.

Along with Google Latitude, there are several applications which allow you to track your own mobile phone if it is lost. These applications enable you to track down the phone and recover it in case of any such mishap. These applications can track the particular phone in two ways. They track it either by the GPS located in the device itself or else through the mobile number. But again, these methods have their own limitations.

First of all, if the device’s GPS is switched off, it becomes difficult to track it by that method. Obviously, there are workarounds (read hacks) for this, but they are not known to many people. Also, if the mobile device is switched off or the miscreant removes the battery and/or the sim card from it, it is becomes almost next to impossible to track it down.

Thus, although the number of free software and mobile websites has made it easy to track and locate your mobile phone, there are ways by which it is able to avoid it as well.
