How To Find Someone's Location Using Their Mobile Number

April 2017

Locating a person using their cell phone number is possible, thanks to technologies that allow you to locate mobile phones, in the case of theft or loss. You only need to associate an email account with your device or download an application to be able to locate it on a map via the Internet. However, the mobile (cellular) phone must be switched on and the tracking service activated at the time of the scan. If the phone has no battery or is off, it will not be possible to track it.

Track Your Android (Samsung) Phone

In order to track your Android, download AndroidLost or enter directly into the Android Device Manager, if you have a Gmail account associated with your device.

Locate Your iPhone

To locate your iPhone, log in to iCloud with your Apple ID credentials. Once signed in, click Find My iPhone. Select your device and the tracking will begin. If successful, you should be able to see its location on the map. If you did not activate Find My iPhone when you set up your device, this method will not work.

Find Your BlackBerry Phone

In order to find your BlackBerry, you must install and configure BlackBerry Protect. After the set up is complete, go to the Blackberry Protect website and log in with your BlackBerry credentials. Ensure that your device is selected, if not go to the Model menu to change the selected device. Then select View Location.
