People now don’t use a phone just to call their friends. A phone can efficiently replace a camera, a phonebook, a notebook for your to do list, a photo album, a laptop to browse the internet and send emails. These features make losing a phone turn into a real tragedy. Apart from the fact that new phones are a bit expensive, the nature of data compromised when you lose a phone could be priceless. So how much should you pay for a mobile tracker service?
Most mobile phones have already installed phone tracking features. If you have an Android phone, you can easily sign in into your Google account and then to your Android Device Manager. This manager will allow you to locate your phone easily on a displayed map. If you have an IPhone, you can easily enable the “Find my Phone” feature and you will be able to find the whereabouts of your phone and this is exactly the same case with Windows phones.
Although these features are very useful and will help you find your phone in no time, but unfortunately you will only be able to use them if your phone is running and is connected to the internet. If your phone battery dies out or if it is not connected to the internet, these features will be useless and it will be really hard to find your phone.
But again there is another free option. You can always ask your service provider to find your phone via GPS. Most service providers can tell you exactly when and where your phone was last used. This might even help you find who might have used it.
At the same time, there are a lot of options available when it comes to phone tracking services. Many companies offer a lot of apps that are very helpful. Some of these apps are really simple and to the point. They can easily locate your phone via GPS without contacting the service provider. All you have to do is to buy an app, install it then you can easily check it using any internet browser. Some apps offer more advanced features. These features could be a little bit more expensive. You can get to remotely control your phone after you have installed these apps. They allow you to lock your device, block numbers or monitor device activity. Some apps can allow you to control the camera or the microphone on your device. You will be able to take photos using your phone without having physical access to it. You can also record phone calls, listen to them and even record the phone surroundings. This might help you to find your phone easily.
Most of these apps have 2 or more plans, depending on the features you want to have. You can pay as little as $10 per year to activate a GPS tracker on your phone or you might want to pay more to gain access to a list of special features.
So what is it going to be? You pay for what you get but you should also make sure that you are paying for what you need.
