How do I track my boyfriend's location via phone number only?

Hi, thanks for being there to help out. I do not want to send him anything or install any app on his phone. Just curious about where he is. Thanks.. I have tried: [www.gpsphonetracker.org]. I think it was caused by: It doesn't work as the location is very broad and vague. I need tails of his locations. Thanks

To reliably see his GPS, you will have to install a spy app directly on his phone. Here are some reliable spy apps for you to consider:

These are just some of the many spy apps out there. However, all of these apps offer customer service and support. When choosing an app, make sure that it offers this. Also, check the reviews of the spy app before you make your purchase. Some may offer a free trial, but all of the reliable apps are paid apps. Something to keep in mind is that you can go into Google Maps on your boyfriend's phone. In the app Settings, there is a history option that will show where he has been as long as his location is enabled.

Track position of someone phone on a map without his permission?

But can easily match the same hardware/software the person is using.. Regards. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Doesn't apply

The spy apps are cross platform which means they can work on any iOS or Android device. That being said you would need access to the phone for about 20 minutes. AutoForward claims that you can use the phone number and begin spying, however, for the app to work fully it will need to be installed directly. Also, if this person is not related to you or you are not in a committed romantic relationship, installing a spy app can be illegal.

How can I track without installing or needing the target phone?

I want to install a tracker on my son's phone but I do not have any access to it as he doesn't live with me anymore but I think he is in some kind of trouble or possibly doing drugs.


You could try AutoForward but it would be best to locate him and gain access to his device and put a spy app on like FlexiSpy. I am so sorry that you are dealing with this as a parent. It is hard to imagine the level of stress and anxiety we feel when our children become older and are on a bad path. If you are the owner of his cell phone account plan then your carrier may have other options to monitor him as well so check that out.

If you are not the account owner on the carrier, consider purchasing a phone for him as a gift. Pre-install a spy app on the device before you give it to him. This way you will be able to monitor him and he will be completely unaware.

Is there a way for me to track her phone in Fl from Kansas City?

Hi, I am/was dating a girl that moved to Florida and I am in Kansas City. I went to Florida with her but came back to Kansas City and was going to go back down soon to visit her. Long story, short is there were somethings we were worried about her environment and she has stopped responding to my calls and texts. I am worried about her.

Long distance relationships fall apart in the blink of an eye, even in the strongest relationships. If you are worried about her and she is not responding to your calls and text messages then contact any of her friends via social media or SMS if you have their numbers. Depending on how worried you are, it may be time to get down to Florida for the weekend to check up on her and the status of your relationship.

If she is backing off because the long distance relationship is too hard, then have a serious conversation with her about both of you residing near each other or with each other. Set a goal date for about 6 months from your conversation and ask that she work with you on relocating so that you can be together. Let her know that you do not want to lose her but keep in mind that she may be hesitant still. You need to convey security with the relationship for it to survive even a short term long distance disruption.

Consider if drugs or alcohol addiction is a possibility. This is why you should go in person to judge the environment. Sometimes people can fall in with the "wrong" crowd to not feel lonely in a new location which leads to drugs or other less than savory behavior. People who are relocating alone are also a target for scams such as befriending and taking everything they can from this person. Keep all of this in mind but be careful on how you approach her with any accusations. If she feels stuck or being controlled then she will shut down and push you even further away. Sometimes the best approach to dealing with these situations is involving a trusted family member of hers. Have them make the accusations and then you act like you support her and can't believe what the family member is saying. This way you all will have someone in your girlfriend's inner circle. Basically, it is playing Good Cop, Bad Cop.

Can I track my girlfriend phone SMS without touching her phone?

I need to see my girlfriend phone SMS, because she is hiding something from me. I want to see my girlfriend phone SMS without touching her phone because its difficult to reach her phone. Can you help me in this way?

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

You will have to touch her phone to see her SMS either through her messages applications or with a spy app. If you think she is hiding something from you, rather than spy on her and violate her privacy, have a conversation with her about how you are feeling insecure in the relationship. She may not be hiding anything but your perception is off. With a conversation, there will be less ramification than if she finds a spy app installed on her phone or you slip up and mention something that is only on her phone.
