Free Cell Phone Tracking Software – Putting it to Work

free-cell-phone-tracking-software

There are several different versions of free cell phone tracking software out there. Some of these claim to be free but actually come with a nominal monthly fee attached to using their services. However, whether you have cell phone tracking software that is free or you use a service which is provided by your carrier, it is one of the best tools you will ever have at your finger tips. There are many reasons cell phone tracking is advantageous. This application can be used for a variety of purposes.

Can All Cell Phones Be Tracked?

Now that we’ve discussed the fact that cell phone tracking is possible, let us look at the which cell phones can be tracked and why. First, it is important to point out that not all cell phone tracking applications require the use of a smart phone. Just about all Sprint and Nextel phones can be tracked through the cell phone’s network, rather than using the GPS satellites which are typically used in cell phone tracking. This means that Sprint and Nextel users may be able to use the network’s locator services without having to own a smart phone.

Types of Cell Phone Tracking Applications Available

All smart phones have some sort of cell phone tracking software and service that is compatible with them. Some of these services are free and some are not. Most cell phone tracking software is windows based and can be used not only from your home computer or laptop but also from your smart phone. The basic premise is that the software runs at all times on the cell phone you are tracking. Most cell phone tracking software will work on just about any smart phone you have, whether it is an iPhone, Android, Blackberry or any other variation. In addition, there are also GPS tracking software applications that can be installed on laptops, notebooks and a number of other devices.

Tracking Your Kids

There was a time when parents had to wonder throughout the day where their kids were. They were faced with a couple of options. One option was to keep the kids home at all times or go with them everywhere, as that is unrealistic, especially when the teen years come into play, the second option was what they were left with.

Free Cell Phone Tracker Apps – Not Just for Geeks

Free Cell Phone Tracker for Android & iPhone

As soon as I added “take-out” delivery to the list of services my rapidly expanding restaurant and catering business provides, I decided to buy my first smartphone, a HTC Sensation. I was like a kid in candy store when it came to installing any of the 1000’s of free apps available from the Android Marketplace.

Of all the apps, the most useful to me, both in business, and as a family man, was a free cell phone tracker app, in this instance the Real Time GPS Tracker. Not only is it a locator for my phone if lost or stolen, but as a personal application it allows me to keep track of my kids, and for business purposes, keeps me informed of the whereabouts of my restaurants delivery drivers. This app is true a hidden gem in my opinion, and I highly recommend it.

Tracking the Kids

Like any parents, my wife and I are always concerned for the safety of our kids, especially when they’re out at night with friends. From an early age they’ve each had their own cell phone, so that we could contact each other if needed. Since I installed the free tracker app on their phones, I feel it has given us that added layer of protection in keeping tabs on the kids. They now don’t need to call to tell us where they are as we can monitor their location remotely. And yes, I know some parents will think this is intrusive, but really, in this day and age you can’t be too careful. Our kids understand our concerns, and are happy to have the app installed, as they also feel safe in that if something goes wrong, we know where to find them quickly.

When their teenage children are off with friends, doing what teenagers do, most parents experience some anxiety as to their chills well being. Some parents have gone as far as installing cell phones trackers/locators to help keep tabs on the teenagers whereabouts, without being overly intrusive.

The other major concern of parents is when the teenagers are in a vehicle, whether as the driver or a passenger. And rightly so, as car accidents involving teens makes up a disproportionate percentage of total motor vehicle deaths and injuries.

A major cause of all accidents, over 80% in fact, is caused by driver distraction. One of those major causes of distractions is the use of cell phones while driving, especially sending SMS messages, or Texting as it’s more commonly called.

This distraction caused by the use of cell phones, has caused an alarming increase in the road toll in the U.S and other western countries, so much so that 34 U.S. states have now legislated to ban the use of mobile phones altogether whilst a person is in control of a vehicle.

Combating Cell Phone Distraction While Driving

Recently, a company based in California has released an app for the Android market that once installed on a phone, will prevent the use of the phone for texting in any vehicle moving faster then 10mph (17kmh). This is all accomplished by using GPS tracking, which monitors the vehicles position second by second.
