With the increased use of cellular phones in daily life by persons of an increasingly younger age, cell phone monitoring has, again, become a hot topic. No longer is cell phone tracking the domain of governments and high ranking officials. Instead, it is an issue that speaks less to an invasion of privacy and more to the issue of ensuring the safety of those we love.
Let’s face it, pre-teens and teenagers (and even in some cases, young adults and the young at heart), are hardly ever aware of their own danger. Today, internet technology is inextricably linked to mobile devices like cellular phones; thanks to the popularity and mobility of social media platforms. As such, one’s exposure to harmful situations are greatly increased. This is especially true of the most vulnerable among us. It is therefore not surprising that cell phone locator and spy phone app technologies are being developed on a daily basis. Phone spy applications are designed to assist with the monitoring and tracking of cell phone activities and location, making the information stored in cell phones, as well as the location of the current user/holder of the cell phone, immediately available.

Extra Tips: How to Track a Phone
- Identify your goals and targets
To track activities on a computer or mobile device, the first step will be to install spy mobile software (such as one of three reviewed above) on the phone(s) or computer (s) you would like to monitor.
Your decision to use one spy software or another will be largely dependent on the kinds of activities, devices and persons you would like to monitor. For example, FlexiSPY is designed for tablets and smartphones, devices that are highly used by a young demographic or given to employees by employers. FlexiSPY would be good to use if those in the target audience fall into any of these categories, or if they primarily use these particular mobile devices.
Additionally, if you are trying to keep tabs on children or young teen, it is important that the spy application that you install on their mobile phones (primary device) or tablets has active GPS tracking cell phone features that work well. Monitoring whereabouts is particularly important where this group is concerned.
2. Remain Incognito
It helps that the person(s) you are trying to monitor are unaware of, or unable to detect the tracking software. This is likely to help you gather the information you are seeking for more efficiently as you will be able to monitor a person’s true to life activity.
