Trace Mobile Phone Location In Real Time | Lookout & Android device
I want to make one thing very clear before we begin, if your mobile is stolen and the thieves have switched your phone off, the getting it’s live location will be very difficult or impossible. Whereas the websites who claim to trace your phone can is never accurate. So If your phone or sim is lost, I would suggest you file an FIR and approach the telecom company.
This way you will receive a better help in finding out the location of your stolen phone. Anyway, as the quote says “Prevention is better than cure” so I will tell you about two apps that are well known in helping out with such situations. They are:
• Android Device Manager
Install any of this app on your android phone, just in case if your mobile gets lost or stolen. This app will help in tracing your phone if the phone is still on and if the data is still running. Let us now see the step by step process on how to install the apps and how to use them in tracing the locations of your phones.
Install Lookout app on your phone from Playstore.
After installation, login to the app using your valid email ID
Now to trace your phone, go to Lookout app’s official website from a web browser and login to the personal tab
Type in the email id and password that you used while installing the app
Just select the Locate Device option show in the bottom
You can also ring your phone, lock it or wipe all the data from it using the app.
In one or two minutes after selecting the Locate My Device option, the app will give you a proper location
Now let me tell you about Android Device Manager
First go to your phone’s settings and select Google services option
Select the Security option under Services and keep the options under Android Device Manager turned On
Go to Playstore, search for Android Device Manager and install it.
Next, search for Android DeviceManager on a web browser and go to the first link
If you’re already logged in to your email on your web browser, the website will try to connect to the default phone
In few seconds, the Device Manager displays your address along with the map of your phone’s current location
Android Device Manager also gives you the similar option such as:
• Ring your phone
• Lock your phone
• Erase the data on your phone
Both of these apps will help you in tracing your phone’s location accurately.
