Use cases

These are the most common cases our customers use our software for.

Child tracking

For many parents, it has become important to know what their children are doing without their supervision. There are only a few parents left who can accompany their children on the way to school, drive them to every music lesson or training session. Concerned parents can and are explicitly allowed to locate their children's cell phones, which they have made available to their children for constant accessibility.

Anyone whose child has ever arrived late from school without letting them know knows what a hell of worry and anxiety parents have to go through in such situations. These nightmares are now a thing of the past. With our cell phone locator, parents can locate their child's cell phone at any time - completely without the child's involvement or knowledge.

Of course, emergency tracking for children is only ever appropriate if the child does not contact you for an agreed period of time and worried parents want to know where the child is. For this purpose, the cell phone can be localized and thus the exact location of the child can be determined.

Cell phone tracking for children is the determination of the current location of a child or their cell phone. Tracking the child's movements through several locations is called tracking. Our cell phone tracking software also offers this as standard.

Cell phone tracking in the event of loss

Cell phone tracking should be initiated quickly as a first measure in the event that your cell phone is lost, because if the cell phone has been stolen, there is no time to lose and you should find out its whereabouts as quickly as possible before a possible perpetrator switches off the cell phone or removes the SIM card. A search for witnesses who have observed the theft is usually pointless, as the perpetrator only needs a few seconds to steal the cell phone and many perpetrators act professionally. However, if the cell phone was simply left somewhere at the last party or accidentally placed in a teammate's sports bag, this can also be determined very quickly if you use our app.

With our cell phone tracking software, your cell phone can be tracked down at any time by determining its current location. Don't wait until your cell phone is lost in a theft - protect yourself with our software so that your cell phone can be found again in no time if the worst comes to the worst.

However, if your cell phone has already been stolen, you should report it directly to the police. This will help you avoid unexpectedly high costs due to the thief using your smartphone. At the same time, you should also block the SIM card and change your Facebook and other passwords if necessary. It is also possible to locate the cell phone by IMEI, but this always involves blocking the cell phone at the same time. However, IMEI tracking can be helpful in the event of theft, as it can be located and locked at the same time.

Locating employees

Anyone who runs a company or has personnel responsibility in their job knows how expensive it can be if employees do not do what they are actually paid to do. Especially when employees are trained to take the shortest and quickest routes in order to save time and money. However, it is also known that not everyone necessarily adheres to this and therefore companies also have the option of being able to locate the cell phone that was made available to the employee. This monitoring of employees is permitted via our cell phone tracking service. The legal barrier for cell phone tracking is also very low.

Employee cell phone tracking should of course not serve the employer as permanent monitoring, but should consciously improve everyday working life and improve work processes. For example, our cell phone tracking app can be used to coordinate truck drivers in a freight forwarding company. Cell phone tracking is also ideal for better control and coordination of field staff and offers far better localization of employees than GPS trackers and vehicle tracking devices thanks to its high level of convenience and maximum accuracy.

Secretly locating cell phones of third parties and unauthorized location of spouses
Cell phone tracking is not always possible without consent, and even when it comes to unauthorized tracking of spouses, ignorance is no excuse. The location of strangers and spouses can be determined via GPS, but locating a cell phone without consent can lead not only to a marital dispute but also to legal consequences.

However, there are exceptions. For example, children can be tracked secretly, as can your own cell phone. If you want to locate someone else's cell phone, you should ideally make sure that you do so with the owner's permission.

Locating old people

The population in Germany is getting older and older and this poses new problems for society. One problem is that many senior citizens struggle with disorientation. People of senior age lose their bearings more quickly than younger people and then no longer know where they actually wanted to go or where they are. This can give relatives a fright or two. People often try to always send a companion with them, but this usually proves to be impractical and expensive in everyday life. One alternative is to locate a senior's cell phone, which makes it possible to track the person's current location and find them quickly. In the case of Alzheimer's, for example, our cell phone tracking can help protect the patient from hypothermia or dehydration, especially in winter.

Locating senior citizens is possible with standard smartphones.
There are only rare cases where it is possible to locate a cell phone free of charge without registration and this is the case when the police want to locate a cell phone. For the cell phone owner, locating their phone is free of charge, but in this case the smartphones have already fallen victim to theft. Cell phone location without registration is otherwise not possible and costs are incurred.

Locate animals/Locate dog

Man's best friend - the loyalty and affection that dog owners receive from their pets is something they wouldn't trade for anything. For these people, it is a great loss when their pet can no longer be found. There are many reasons why dogs or cats run away and don't find their way back home. If you love your dog or cat, you can use GPS tracking for animals to find your pet again. The animals are fitted with GPS collars for animals and can thus be located. It is only important that the GPS collar is not lost, because then even a tracking service can no longer help.

Our tracking software makes it possible to locate any cell phone worldwide based on the phone number. Of course, this is not a spy app, but a service designed to help you and your friends monitor your own smartphone device.

Find iPhone / locate Android cell phone

For many iPhone users, their own iPhone is indescribably important, as it contains the most personal data and is usually not cheap. Apple's Find iPhone app can be used to locate an iPhone in many cases, but if the device does not have access to the Internet, this will not help. Even a movement profile cannot be set up using Apple's tools alone. With our service, you can locate your iPhone and find it more quickly. Of course, our software can also be used to locate any Android cell phone or any other cell phone.

Locating via notebook, computer, tablet or smartphone

There are many ways to locate your lost cell phone, whether it's via a notebook, a computer or a smartphone or tablet. If you want to locate your cell phone, you can also find it. It doesn't matter whether you use a Windows, Samsung, iPhone or Google device. The Windows and iOS operating systems are equally suitable and it is also irrelevant whether you are using a Samsung or iPhone cell phone.

Self-location & external location

Self-location is always used when you try to locate your own cell phone by collecting the position data of your own cell phone. The car navigation system is a good example of this. With external positioning, the positioning data is collected at a different location. As a rule, this is always the location of the tracked object whose position you are interested in. An example of this is locating a cell phone after it has been stolen.

Anything with a SIM card can be tracked, i.e. primarily cell phones and tablets. Locating a tablet works in the same way as locating a smartphone and can be used via apps. Of course, cell phone number tracking only works for devices that also have a phone number and can therefore be tracked via the cell phone number. In addition to all cell phones, this also includes numerous tablets and laptops with a built-in SIM slot.
