Do you want to know the location of a contact? Are you dating a person and want to track their location? In this guide by Syrus, we will show you how to locate a phone from your computer or mobile device. We will also add some tools to help you identify the number that is calling you and also see its geographical location. You will be happy to know that the actions we will explain below are also applicable to unknown numbers. Let’s start right away.
How to track an unknown number
Sometimes calls from an unknown number can be irritating, Truecaller is a useful tool to help you trace the call. Available both as a web service and as an easy-to-use Android or iOS application. First, go to the main page of the website and sign up, otherwise you will not be able to perform the subsequent actions. Once this is done, type in the phone number you want to trace and press enter. At this point, if the number you want to trace is present in Truecaller‘s database, you can view the tab with all the information you need to identify the caller.
Tracking with Google Maps
Google Maps is available on Android and iOS/iPadOS. On Google Maps you can use a function to share your location in real time with your contacts, even if they do not have a Google account. Once you have shared your location with other users, you can request to view their location by selecting their contact’s profile photo and pressing Request.
Tracking a smartphone
If you want to track a smartphone instead, we recommend tools such as Find My Device, for Android smartphones and tablets, and Find My iPhone. Using these services is very simple, you just need to visit the designated web service and authenticate yourself with a registered account on a device you own or a friend who provides you with login credentials.
See the location in real time
You will then see that location in real time on the location map of your Android or Apple device, depending on which service you are using.
